AKA Maple Syrup Diet – It’s how Beyonce lost 22lbs in just 14days
A safe and natural detox with no preservatives or chemical processes. The Lemon Detox – sometimes referred to by the media as the Maple Syrup Detox -ï¿½ allows the body to cleanse itself naturally of accumulated toxins and helps the body to normalise its weight.
The body has miraculous powers to cleanse itself. Unfortunately much of what we consume in the western world has limited nutritional value. Numerous chemicals and toxins are introduced into environment everyday and find their way into our bodies through the air we breathe, the water we drink and the food we eat. The Lemon Detox lets the body cleanse itself naturally while you take a break from solid food.
The Lemon Detox has helped tens of thousands of people. Over half a million litres of the Madal Bal Natural Tree Syrup, used in the lemon detox, are now sold in 33 countries each year.
People who have completed the Lemon Detox programme frequently report a wide variety of benefits including:
ï¿½ Cleansing the body of toxins
ï¿½ Weight loss if overweight
ï¿½ Greater resistance to illness
ï¿½ Stronger willpower and determination
ï¿½ Improved concentration and clarity of thought
ï¿½ï¿½ Increased energy and vitality
ï¿½ Clearer skin and eyes
ï¿½ Shinier hair and stronger nails
ï¿½ Happier, more positive outlook
ï¿½ Greater sense of inner peace
Originally introduced more than 30 years ago by the naturopath Stanley Burroughs, and later developed in Switzerland, it is now practised in over 30 countries across Europe, Asia and America, the Lemon Detox is a holistic approach to long-term health.
Please note this is a detox not a diet. We recommend that you consult a practitioner if you have any concerns about excessive weight loss.
The Lemon Detox Diet is a drink consisting of pure water, fresh lemon juice, cayenne pepper or ground ginger and Madal Bal Natural Tree Syrup. Whenever you get hungry simply mix a glass of the drink.
The Madal Bal Natural Tree Syrup consists of four different South East Asian palm syrups and prime quality Canadian grade maple syrup.ï¿½
The Detox Drink
To make one glass of Natural Tree Syrup and Lemon Drink take
Two small tablespoons (or 20 ml) of Madal Bal Natural Tree Syrup.ï¿½
Two tablespoons of freshly squeezed lemon juice (about half a lemon). Use fresh lemons, not lemon drink or concentrate.
Half a pinch of cayenne pepper or ginger (adjust to taste).ï¿½
Mix the ingredients and dilute with half a pint of hot or cold water.ï¿½
Drink as much as you like, ideally 6 to 9 glasses a day.
If you prefer you can prepare one batch of Natural Tree Syrup and Lemon Drink to last for the whole day. For 1ï¿½ litre of water (approx. 7 glasses) you will need 140ml of Madal Bal Natural Tree Syrup and 3ï¿½ lemons as well as the cayenne pepper or ginger.

Elimination – Key to Success
To ensure the success of the Lemon Detox Diet, proper elimination is essential. The better the elimination, the better the results. If toxins are not continuously removed throughout the programme they will be reabsorbed. Drink a total of at least three litres of liquid each day including the 7 to 10 glasses of Natural Tree Syrup and lemon drink, peppermint tea and water.
Brushing your skin and light exercise are also a great complement to the diet. It helps the elimination process by increasing blood flow and perspiration of toxins through the skin.
Laxative Teas and Salt Water
To assist with bowel elimination, a laxative herb tea is recommended in the evening and salt water in the morning. The laxative tea helps to break up wastes and the salt water to flush it from your system. To make the salt water drink, mix two teaspoons of sea salt into one litre of warm water and make sure you stay close to a lavatory for the next half an hour.
If the taste of the salt water is too strong to handle, you can substitute another cup of the herbal laxative tea instead.
Light exercise is also a great complement to the diet. If you already exercise keep training but avoid strenuous exercise as intense exertion may encourage toxins to be reabsorbed rather than eliminated.
Nevertheless, gentle exercise is very helpful to the cleansing process. The key is finding the right balance of activity and rest. Adequate rest is crucial during the Lemon Detox Diet, while resting the body performs its vital cleansing tasks. Far from interfering with your training the Lemon Detox Diet is a wise investment for anyone wanting to keep fit.ï¿½ Youï¿½ll find that your body performs more efficiently when it is cleansed and purified, experiencing higher energy levels and performance.
Some Cleansing Symptoms
It is normal to experience some discomfort during the course of the Lemon Detox Diet. As the stored-up toxins and wastes are released, they circulate through the blood stream before being eliminated. This release of toxins may cause headaches. Also any chronic skin disorders may temporarily worsen in the early stages of the programme as toxins are released through the skin.
Don’t worry; these symptoms are normal and a positive sign that the Lemon Detox Diet is working. Persevere! Be prepared to take some extra rest if necessary. Usually the symptoms will only last a day or two. As the wastes are eliminated the body will regain its natural strength and vitality. You will also notice your skin improving and becoming clearer than ever.
Concluding the Programme
Since the digestive system has been resting for five to ten days, treat it carefully and considerately at the conclusion of the programme. The most common mistake is to eat too much too soon.
Gradually return to healthy eating over two or three days. On day one, stick with fresh squeezed fruit juices. On day two start the morning with juice and then try some pureed vegetable soup for lunch. By the third day you can you can try some steamed or raw vegetables. Do not eat any meat, fish, eggs, bread and sweets and do not drink soft drinks during the first three days. On the fourth day you can start eating "normally" again.
Maintaining Good Health
You have done your mind, body and spirit a great service by completing the Lemon Detox. You have cleansed your body, lost excess weight, and increased your fortitude and willpower.
Now it’s important to use that increased fortitude and willpower to stick with an improved diet, especially if you are trying to keep off excess weight. There are many different ideas as to the appropriate diet to follow on a permanent basis, but no one diet that is right for everyone. Different body types have different requirements. There are, however certain basic principles that we believe are important to follow on any diet.
Try to keep down the amounts of processed foods that you eat. Processed sugars, refined foods, and saturated fatty foods all can have a detrimental effect on the body, as can alcohol and too much caffeine. Listen to your body and try to stick with natural, whole foods. Try eating lots of fresh vegetables and experiment with different combinations until you find the right long-term nutritional plan for you.

Mrs C.G. Edinburgh
"I really enjoyed the diet and suffered no of the side effects that you said could occur. My skin was great, my energy levels were high (I did Astanga Yoga during the diet, as well as run around with my two young boys) and I only rarely felt hungry. I did lose 12 lbs in weight, which I was delighted to lose, and which has stayed off even after Christmas!"
