Have you ever heard of the „Beyonce Diet“? The lemon, cayenne pepper, and honey diet might be better known as the Master Cleanse, the lemonade diet or perhaps even the Beyonce diet. Queen Bee is famous for this cleansing method. But does it really work?
What to expect
The master cleanse is a way of detox or cleansing with the intention of removing toxins from the body and to boost the metabolism. Give it 10 days and you’ll drop pounds, detox your digestive system and feel energetic, vital, and healthy.
This diet does more harm than good. Of course you will lose weight on this diet but it will not be a long-lasting weight loss. Because you're getting so few calories, you will lose weight, but also muscle, bone, and water. And you're likely to gain the weight right back.
What we recommend
You don’t have to go on a 10-day-detox to get rid of toxins or some pounds! Lemon-honey-cayenne water is a great way to cleanse your body regularly even when you’re not “on a cleanse.”
All three ingredients have anti-fungal, immune boosting and detoxification properties.
Honey and lemon juice are both great for digestion, destroying bacteria, and cleansing the system - they support the liver and kidneys to get rid of toxins.
Cayenne pepper supports your metabolism and increases fat burning, aids digestion and helps regulate blood sugar. Put them together and you have a very powerful cleansing drink!
– About 10 oz of water
– 2 tablespoons of fresh organic lemon juice
– 1 tablespoon of honey
– A pinch of cayenne pepper
You can drink it every morning or when you crave for unhealthy food. It also works as a fat-burner and energy booster. Your body will thank you, so give it a try!
