Celebrities and The Lemonade Diet

For over 60 years, thousands of people from all across the world have benefited from the aid of the Master Cleanse diet. However, the truth of the matter is, the lemonade diet has gained much of it’s widespread popularity among the youth over the past decade, mainly due to celebrity exposure.

It’s hard to dissect many celebrity trends, especially in the dieting world; whether they are healthy weight loss regimens, or here today – gone tomorrow noxious crazes. The creator of the Lemonade Diet, Stanley Burroughs, intended the diet to be used for detoxification purposes. Many people now favor the added benefit of weight loss as well.

Some celebrities have used the lemonade diet to lose a tremendous amount of weight in a very short period of time. Jared Leto, singer for the band 30 Seconds to Mars and acclaimed actor, lost 62 lbs he gained for a role in the film Chapter 27.

“8 days after I was done with the film, I fasted for 10 days, and I got right back on the road with 30 Seconds To Mars (his band), Jared said.”

However, some now call the Master Cleanse diet the “Beyonce Diet”. Beyonce made headlines after announcing in 2006 that she lost 20lbs on the Master Cleanse diet, in order to play the role of her younger character in the hit movie Dreamgirls.

Beyonce stated, “Normally they’d change your make-up or your clothes, but I wanted to go the extra mile. Back in the sixties, models like Twiggy were popular. I knew Deena would have been thin then, so even though I really love eating, it was necessary to lose weight really fast because we shot Deena at 16 and Deena at 36 two weeks apart.”

Robin Quivers, host and radio personality of the Howard Stern show, also advocates the Master Cleanse, stating, “This wasn’t about weight loss,” says Quivers, who traces her health problems to steroid-based medication that she took in 1989 to regulate her menstrual cycle, “I was really trying to regain my health, and that’s what it did.”

Angelina Jolie, Denzel Washington, and Ashanti are among countless other rumored celeb lemonade dieters.

So is this diet safe and are these celebrities being health conscious?

The answer from many repetitive Master Cleansers, dietitians, and health professionals is a resounding yes – it not only supports weight loss, but also cleanses the blood, organs, and digestive tract — expelling toxins that have accumulated over the years. However, like with any diet or detox program, it is important that you are thoroughly informed, are doing it the right way, and are doing it for the right reasons.

    i did this diet before it even became popular in the mainstream press. i think it’s cool that celebrities are giving the lemonade diet the recognition it deserves now and more people are hearing about it.

  2. I have to say, every time I come to thelemonadesite.com there is another interesting article up to read. One of my friends was telling me about this topic a couple weeks ago. I think I’ll send my friend the url here and see what they say.

  3. Jen Czipo says:

    The lemonade diet is by far the best detox diet I’ve tried. I always feel full of life and energy and am never hungry as long as I keep a bottle of lemonade with me. And it’s much safer than all the chemical pill supplements being sold in stores now a days.

  4. M Pellegrino says:

    I would have to say this clense is the best thing I have tried to date, you will lose weight, feel better, and think healthier after you complete the diet. I lost 18lbs in 14 days being on the lemonade clense. Hats off everyone should make this a part of their regular diet and clense once every 2 to 3 months, you body will thank you, M. Pellegrino, Charlotte MI.

  5. I really admire Angelina Jolie for her humanitarian work. So many celebrities don’t take the time to give back to the people that helped them achieve all their dreams and goals.

  6. I can’t figure out how to subscribe to the comments via my reader . I want to keep on top of this, how do I do that?

  7. I really like Beyonce, she is so beautiful!really pretty!

  8. denzel washington is such a stud…his movies are always so awesome and action packed

  9. Interesting article

    There’s nothing like being lean and healthy. In today’s world, we have toworkout occasionnaly and get rid off our bad diet habits. It’s not that hard. You only have to stick to a diet program and continue until you reach your objectives.

    Thanks for sharing this with your readers.

  10. i think Denzel Washington is a great role model. i also think he is the sexiest Black Man right now doing his thing

  11. Selin says:

    I don’t think Beyonce is prettier that way. She is more beautiful with her booty because she is naturally in curvy body type. If you are not a naturally Kate Moss type, you have to maintain the weight suitable with your body type.

  12. Angelica says:

    I have lost 12 pounds in 5 days feels great, I was developing a pimple it went away in 2 days cleansing , normally would have been there 6 days

  13. isabel says:

    I need to ask some questions (if you can help me): I am very proud of doing alrelady 2 days, so this is my 3rd day, but it is really difficult because I miss food all the time and when I am the one who has to cook dinner, make breakfast and lunches, it is really a torture. Anyways, I would like to know if it is normal no to eliminate anything but water during this 2 days I’ve been on the diet. In some way I think it make sense, since I am not eating anything else (but exactly what’s n the diet), how can I eliminate something??? is this normal? would I be able to eliminate (BM) some day during this 10 days diet? I already increase my salt in the water (3 tsp) and the laxative tea at night is 10 minutes, hot and strong. So please let me know if this is normal. Can I still workout right? the 8 glasses of lemonade I take during the day is plenty enough for me, but do I need to drink regular water as well? I can not drink the salt water fast enough (it is not of great taste), but I do it in 30 minutes, if I do it any fast, I know I will vomit it. Please if somebody can help me with this questions I will really appreciated. Cheers for all of us who are going through this diet and wishing you success.

    Hi Isabel,
    It is normal to have watery eliminations during the first few days of the cleanse. As the waste that is more tightly encrusted to your colon starts to become lose, usually during the mid to end of the cleanse, you may have darker more solid BMS. You do not need to consume any more liquid than is required on the diet, unless you feel thirsty. Good luck with the remainder of your cleanse.

  15. Denise says:

    Must I expect to gain all the weight back after I have completed the diet and resume eating normally?

  16. admin says:

    Hi Denise,
    If you maintain a typically healthy diet after the cleanse, you should not expect to gain weight back.

  17. Melissa says:

    I do not like maple syrup. I am not a diabetic, is it still ok to substitute with agave?

  18. admin says:

    Hi Melissa,
    You can still use agave during the lemonade cleanse.

  19. dianne says:

  20. Bev says:

    I could not find the “Grade B Maple Syrup” so I am using Organic Maple Syrup. Will this work ok?

  21. admin says:

    Hello Bev,
    Grade B Maple syrup is recommended by the creator the lemonade diet. Whether or not organic maple syrup would be an okay substitute depends upon the brand. Some syrups claim to be organic but have additives added during the syrup making process.

    Hello Dianne,
    The lemonade diet helps burn fat deposits in the body and cleanses the system of toxic waste, so it may help eliminate some of your acne.

  23. sherri says:

  24. admin says:

    Hi Sherri,
    Only light to moderate exercise is recommended.

  25. Annabelle says:

    Will I have a lot of gas after I do the cleanse?

  26. admin says:

    Hi Annabelle,
    If you ease out of the cleanse gradually you should not have any gastrological issues.

  27. Malerie says:

    Is it ok if a 15 year old, 5/6 height and weighs 135 does the cleanse? :)

  28. admin says:

    Hello Malerie,
    At this age your body is still growing and detox dieting is not recommended.

  29. Betty says:

    I would like to start this diet. I need to loose about 20 kg, how long should i do it to lose that much?

  30. admin says:

    Hello Betty,
    It’s common to lose between 1-2 pounds a day on the master cleanse diet. To lose 20 kilograms, you would have to do the detox for anywhere from 20-40 days. Please consult with a health care doctor before performing any diet regimen for that length of time. Good luck with your cleansing.

    Hello Lexi,
    You can visit our web site at http://www.TheLemonadeSite.com and follow the recipe and instructions guidelines. The results vary depending upon the person. On average, 1-2 lbs. are lost a day on the lemonade cleanse. However, some people retain water weight for the first 5-6 days of cleansing. There are other results related to the detoxification process, and you might notice these after approximately 3 to 4 days. This may include heavily coated tongue, mild headaches, and fatigue. These usually subside at around day 6 or 7, and increased feeling of well-being, energy, and mental clarity set in.
