I remember the first time I watched the movie Dreamgirls and thought, “Wow!” Beyonce looks just like one of the Supremes in their skin-tight costumes from the 1960s.
What was more amazing was that just a couple of weeks before filming began, Beyonce realized she was too curvy to fit into the movie’s costumes.
Now, I’m no fan of the Hollywood “stick-thin” look and I believe if you’re comfortable with your weight and the way you look – so long as it isn’t hurting your health – you should ignore media pressure to conform to their standards.
Beyonce made her own decision: she wanted to drop 20 pounds in two weeks. And she did it, using a diet that’s been around for almost 70 years.
It`s called the Master Cleanse, though it’s also known as the lemonade diet and the maple syrup cleanse – because it uses lemons and maple syrup.
New Yorker health guru Stanley Burroughs created it in 1941, concocting a drink made from maple syrup, cayenne pepper and lemons. His aim was to help rid the body of toxins with a 10-day liquid diet. One of the unexpected side benefits was that it helped people to lose weight quickly.
Burroughs was a big fan of inner cleansing or detoxification. When you think about it he was decades ahead in his thinking when you consider the fat, salt, sugar and preservatives we consumer today. There are traces of pesticides in vegetables and fruit and few people eat enough fibre.
Burroughs wanted to help people flush out of their bodies years of accumulated poisons and toxins that slow our immune systems, cause us to gain weight and make us feel tired.
Here’s the bad news: the Burroughs’ diet is extremely hard. Many who try it don’t realize just how tough a liquid diet is and they usually quit by the third or fourth day.
The good news. You can now get all the benefits of this diet without starving yourself. Raylen Sterling, an expert on the diet, has produced a how-to guide called Master Cleanse Secrets.
“Thanks to all the chemicals and toxic garbage found in our food, air, and water our glandular system is weak and crippled. These vital glands are not functioning at 100% and that’s why so many people today are depressed, overweight, have no energy, and get sick all the time,” says Sterling.
What’s revolutionary about Sterling’s modified method is that she lists foods you can eat while following the diet — including protein.
Simply put, it’s a masterful way of tuning up your body – and losing weight fast.
