Lemon Detox Diet

From here.

To make one batch of the Lemon Detox drink to last for the whole day
For a 2 Litre batch (approx.6-9 glasses), which is the recommend daily intake of the Detox drink;:
• 140ml of Madal Bal Natural Tree Syrup™,
• 3 ½ freshly squeezed lemons (about 140ml)
• 2 - 3 pinches of the Cayenne Pepper. 
Mix the above ingredients with water to make a 2 litre batch.

To make one glass of the Lemon Detox drink 
• One tablespoon (or 20 ml) of Madal Bal Natural Tree Syrup™.
• One tablespoon of freshly squeezed lemon juice (about half a lemon). 
Use fresh lemons, not lemon drink or concentrate. 
• Half a pinch of cayenne pepper (adjust to taste).

Mix the ingredients and dilute with at least 250ml of water.

You may drink the Lemon Detox drink cold, room temperature or warm.


We recommend you drink at least 1-2 litres of water in addition to the lemon detox drinks. Drink the laxative tea in the evening and the sea salt water drink in the morning.

If you feel the need for variety, then once or twice a day you can drink a cup of herb tea or freshly squeezed citrus juice (orange or grapefruit). Peppermint, rosehip and chamomile teas are useful complements to the Lemon Detox drink and make a nice contrast. Peppermint tea especially supports the cleansing process, cleanses the palate and neutralizes any mouth or body odours that may arise. Teas and juices should only be sweetened with the Madal Bal Natural Tree Syrup™, if at all, and do not use or add any dairy products


I swear when I woke up today my stomach felt less flat because I'd eaten yesterday. Or am I just being paranoid? Today I had apricots for breakfast but then my parents dropped off a container of one of my favourite dishes, it's chickpeas in a tomato and herb sauce... I ate the full container -like the size of a chinese take away dish - so am feeling very naughty. At least it's a completely healthy dish?

I am better at fasting then at regulating what I eat. Sigh. 

Also - I think it would be safe to replace maple syrup with honey, the important thing is to keep up a source of potassium so your heart can function properly, and there is potassium in honey. I don't know how much though.

And hello and warm welcome to my new followers :) everyone on here really inspires me! I need to put a webcam or something near the fridge so everytime I go nearby one of you can be like NOOO don't do it!

  1. The webcam idea's genius! hehe
    Good luck with the detox- it sounds too intense for me, I'm impressed. Maybe warm up the honey so it mixes in? otherwise you might end up with a big blob in the bottom and a not very sweet drink.
    Don't beat yourself up about chickpeas, they're so good for you and low cal but maybe just watch the portion size next time?
    Keep at it! xxx

    haha i am the opposite! i suck at fasting but am awesome at restricting. weird!
