Want to know how celebrities such as Heidi Klum, Beyonce and Jennifer Aniston stay so slim, beautiful and radiate such a healthy glow? Apparently these gorgeous ladies swear by the Lemon Diet, one of the most effective and simplest diets you can go on! The main ingredients in the Lemon Diet are lemons, cayenne pepper and maple syrup. Lemons are packed with Vitamin C, a vitamin that helps to increase our immune system’s response. Lemons are also great for dissolving kidney and gall bladder stones, they cleanse the bladder & colon, and assist in ridding the body of calcium deposits. They are a diuretic and have an antimicrobial effect. When combined with the other ingredients in the Lemon Diet, lemon juice can flush out toxic substances in the body while helping to destroy bacteria in the intestines, bladder, and colon.
Cayenne pepper is known to soothe the digestive tract and stimulates the flow of stomach secretions and saliva. It also regulates blood flow and is a vital ingredient in the Lemon Diet for speeding up the release and elimination of toxins in the blood stream. Organic Grade B Maple Syrup is very high in vitamin content and contains B2, B5, B6, PP, Biotin, and Folic Acid. The main minerals present are: calcium, potassium, manganese, magnesium, phosphorus, and iron. Amino Acids, the building blocks of all proteins, are also present in Grade B Maple Syrup.
The Lemon juice drink should be made up fresh each morning and should be drunk 6 to 12 times a day.

Before you go on the Lemon Diet you should spend the day before detoxing by eating natural foods and eliminating junk foods and tea, coffee and alcohol. After seven days of being on the Lemon Diet you should introduce foods back slowly, starting with orange juice on day one, then vegetable soup and juice for the next couple of days, and finally eating normally but no refined foods after five days.
And remember to get advice from your doctor before attempting any new diet.
