What is a Master Cleanse?

The Master Cleanse aka Lemonade diet

The Master Cleanse (also called The Lemonade Diet) is a modified juice fast that's often used for rapid weight loss. 

It was created by Stanley Burroughs in 1940s to detoxify your body and shed excess fat.

Ok, Beyonce did this cleanse. And yes she says it worked.

The typical regime is to consume only lemon juice, cayenne pepper, and maple syrup for 10 days. You consume 6 to 12 glasses of this lemonade throughout the day.

There are three exceptions to this rule. You can drink:

  1. water anytime you want
  2. a diuretic tea before bed
  3. a liter of salt water in the morning

How much does it cost?

It's practically free. You're paying for lemons and cheap household ingredients.

What are the benefits?

This detox cleanse is known for its weight loss characteristics. There are claims that you can lose up to 20 pounds on this type of cleanse.

Joy! right..? Well, you consume about 600 calories each day on this cleanse.

That's like telling you to eat a third of what you're eating now..for the entire day. Goodbye lunch and dinner!!

Is it easy to follow?

It's a straightforward recipe and an easy routine.

The hardest part will be tasting the same spicy lemonade over and over again for days.

What is a raw juice cleanse?


Eating all that fruit and veggie is just so cumbersome, so why not just gulp it all down as a smooth, tasty drink?

The idea is to give your digestive system a break while you flood your body with easily digestible, living nutrients.

You'll still want to drink plenty of water, perhaps even more than usual during a raw juice cleanse.

PRO TIP: Water helps flush away all the "bad stuff" that's in your system, while keeping you well hydrated.

If haven't cleansed before check out our post on The Best Way to Juice Cleanse.

How much does it cost?

Considering that it takes 3-5 pounds of fruits and veggies to produce just one bottle of juice, it's surprisingly affordable. You can find juice for anywhere from $6 to $12 a bottle, with cleanses starting at $147 and up.

What are the benefits?

After a raw juice cleanse, most people will experience:

  • Clearer and softer skin, although your skin may initially break out from impurities leaving your body
  • Much better digestion. By giving your digestive system a break, you're giving your body a chance to deeply expel any toxins lingering around.
  • Much more energy, the kind that you feel after a really good night's sleep

Is it easy to follow?

The raw juice cleanse routine is simple:

  1. Drink the next numbered juice bottle
  2. Refill your juice bottle with water and drink that
  3. Repeat #1 & #2 for all bottles of juice. (We give you 6 bottles per day.)


The Raw Juice Cleanse Showdown

The question really boils down to: Is your goal to be healthier or simply drop a ton of weight?

If you're looking for weight loss, the cheapest way to lose weight is to quit eating altogether. 

Ha! We're being facetious, but we're still a bit serious. Have you ever seen Naked and Afraid, when they go 21 days with just a small lizard to eat?

Jeff is living proof that starvation works.

One step up from starvation would be the Master Cleanse. The Master Cleanse essentially forces your body into starvation mode, while constantly flushing your system out.

We hate starving..

So we're huge fans of juice. Obviously. Here's why:

A raw juice cleanse floods your body with real fruits and veggies, actually making you healthier. It's like you're catching up on all the raw fruits and veggies your hasn't had for so long.

Downside: you're not going to lose weight like you would on a starvation diet.

Because losing weight isn't the point of a raw juice cleanse.

A raw juice cleanse will make you feel lighter, brighter, and overall cleaner.

(PS - just so you don't accuse us of holding out, people tell us they lose up to 3 pounds a day on our juice cleanse.) 

(PPS - if you get tired of all the energy you're going to find, just drown it with a few deep dish pizzas. Wash them down with some soda for good measure.)

Is it raw juice cleanse time yet?
