The maple syrup and cayenne pepper diet, also known as The Master Cleanse Diet isn't new. This diet is created by alternative medicine practitioner Stanley Burroughs way back in the 1941, whom described it as a "detoxification program" and later promoted by Peter Glickman in the 1990s. The Master Cleanse Diet made famous when Beyonce announced on the Oprah Winfrey show that she had lost 20 pounds on the Master Cleanse for an acting role in Dreamgirls.
When considering about Master Cleanse Diet to lose weight fast, there are some serious question to be asked. Is this diet appropriate for you? Peak Health Now list down the pros and cons.
Master Cleanse Diet Pros
1. Made cleanse
Of course, you will feel better by stopping consumption of alcohol, junk food, coffee and tobacco, which are toxic to the body.
2. Natural body detox
Additionally, not eating conventionally raised meats, eggs and dairy eliminates artificial hormones, antibiotics, mycotoxins from grains fed to these animals, and other poisons lightens toxic burden on the body. Ceasing to eat vegetables and fruits heavily sprayed with insecticides removes another big source of toxins.
3. Feel better and lighter
Some people feel better on this detox program simply because they have stopped putting poisons in their bodies.

Master Cleanse Diet Cons
1. Depletion of lean muscle mass by protein deprivation.
Fasting is voluntary starvation, with all the bodily depletion and breakdown associated with that unhappy state of affairs.
2. Lean muscle mass is broken down to supply energy.
This is a survival mechanism that would keep you alive and marginally maintain body function if you could not get food for a period of time.
3. Continual consumption of pure sugar.
Constant consumption of maple syrup has several dangers. One, it is virtually all sugar. Sugar eaten in the absence of sufficient protein, vitamin and mineral consumption will STEAL these elements from your body (because they are used to metabolize the sugar)! Two, sugar raises triglycerides in the blood. Three, sugar demineralizes bones and teeth. The minute amount of minerals in Grade B maple syrup can't possibly offset the deleterious effect of all the sugar.
Last, but certainly not least, sugar fosters the growth of fungal forms such as candida yeast which can create mycotoxins (mold toxins). Mycotoxins can damage many parts of the body, including the brain and nervous system.
4. Mineral depletion.
While proponents point to the fact that the recommended Grade B maple syrup contains trace amounts of minerals - that is not enough to sustain sufficient electrolytes (calcium, magnesium, potassium, salt) in the body. As well, metabolizing all that sugar depletes minerals, negating any benefits! Lack of magnesium, for example, can cause heart arrhythmias, possibly leading to heart fibrillation (the heart muscle convulses uncontrollably and can't pump blood), and death.
5. Erosion of tooth enamel.
Think twice before sipping acidic sugar water continually for ten or more days at a time. This WILL destroy tooth enamel over time.
6. Damaging nerves that trigger peristalsis in the gut.
The nightly consumption of senna tea, a laxative, irritates and damages the lining and nerve endings in the colon. The idea is to try and keep the bowel active while no food is being taken. Instead of preventing constipation, this may ensure it! It is just plain bad to take laxatives except in a critical situation.
