Beyonce diet

Recommended Posts

Has anyone tried the lemon/pepper/maple syrup cleanse diet?

 

Beyonce apparently lost 20 pounds in 14 days.

 

I would love to lose that much before my wedding. Even 10 would be great.

 

I think I may try.... running out of time.

 

Anyone one try? Did it work?

I just read up on it a bit by googling. It sounds horrid. Pepper, lemon juice and syrup mixed as a drink for days? Not for me. It also suggest salt water flushes. For me... hours of sitting on the toilet to "cleanse" me.. no thanks. It's really not a healthy way to lose weight. I think I'll just stick to watching what I eat and ramping up the cardio.

 

If it works for you, great! It's just not my cup of tea.

I agree, that does not sound healthy to me. A cleanse is ok, but you need some sort of food to sustain energy and 14 days is a bit long. Cut white carbs and sweets along with exercise and see where that gets you!

I personally haven't done it but considered it. I read a really interesting blog about it and decided it wasn't for me.

 

There are a lot of side effects that someone like Beyonce has the luxury of dealing with. you should be completely off and able to stay at home and rest during that time. There are intense headaches associated with this type of cleanse due to hunger and the elimination of caffeine, etc. They body goes through a big shock. I read that you should keep away from all kinds of food because of the temptation, but that after a few days food begins to become nauseating.

 

You do lose quite a bit of weight, but it is mainly water and poo (for lack of a better term). Because of that, you will gain about 50% of the weight back within a few days. Also, having not eaten in that amount of time, you have to let your body slowly adjust to having food again and that transition takes about a week. You start off with liquids only then gradually work your way up to eating solids again.

 

I agree with the other girls. Cutting out refined sugars, white carbs, excess fats, sodas, etc. is probably a better way to go. Add in some cardio and plenty of sleep and you will see longer lasting results.

I have done this clease for a short time to start a nutritioanl program and it was HORRIBLE!

 

THe salt water flush is horrible enough.

 

Also if you researched further, Beyonce herself said it was a horrible and unhealthy way to lose weight and would never recommend it to anyone.

 

BTW, it is not a weight loss program at all, but is infact called the Master Cleanse if you want to look into it further.

I agree with the other posters. Also, I don't think this would give you lasting weight lose. You might even gain all the weight back before your wedding date which would completely defeat the purpose of putting yourself through this torture.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
