How Beyonce Lose 20 Pounds in 10 Days

Beyonce in Dreamgirls (2006)
Beyonce reported to have lost 20 pounds in 10 days for her role in movie Dreamgirls (2006). In the "Dreamgirls" she portrayed herself as younger, more slender self. She announced on the Oprah Winfrey show that she had lost 20 pounds on the Master Cleanse.
So here it is, the Maple Syrup Diet, also known as the Lemon Cleansing Diet, the Lemonade Diet or the Master Cleanse which can supposedly be used for 3-10 days safely. This diet isn't new. The naturopath, Stanley Borroughs, developed it back in the 1950's. Be forewarned: a "cleansing reaction" is often noticed in the first two days. (That's diarrhea to you and me.)

Take a clean one-gallon jug and pour in the following:
  • 3 Quarts of Water
  • 1 Cup Lemon Juice
  • 1 Cup Pure Maple Syrup (not maple flavored, but the REAL stuff) or molasses
  • 1 Teaspoon Cayenne
Shake it all up and drink 8-12 glasses a day.

Warning: You will experience cravings, aches, pains, mental irritability and fatigue. These are symptoms of your body's detoxification.

If you really want to flush your system, proponents of the Master Cleanse recommend doing the following:
  1. Go to your local health food store and get a herbal laxative tea that contains senna. While you're there purchase about 1 cup of non-iodized sea salt.
  2. Every morning, before your lemonade, mix two teaspoons of the sea salt with a quart of water and chug. Make sure you are near a toilet and have about an hour to spare. You'll need it.
  3. Every night, drink a cup of your laxative tea.

This fast should not be used for more than 10 days and you should wait at least four weeks before repeating it. Supposedly this fast dissolves toxins and is great for breaking up mucous. (That much lemon and cayenne will clear anybody's sinuses!)

Whatever you do, do not go directly back to a rich diet after your time on this fast. In fact, the best thing to do during a fast like this is to start setting your mind to healthy eating so that when you go off the fast you can start fresh on a healthy nutrition plan that will keep you body clean and strong.
