It seems like every week in the tabloids, you read about celebrities’ quirky and crazy fad diets. Some of these great bodies you see on the big screen take a lot of work, but what are their secrets?
After some research, the winner of the craziest cleanse goes to goes to Beyonce Knowles’ Maple Syrup Fad Diet. Want a ‘bootylicious’ body like Beyonce? Here is the plan of action:
The maple syrup diet, also known as the cleansing diet, lasts for approximately 3-10 days. To follow the diet, you fill a gallon jug and pour 3 quarts of water, 1 cup lemon juice, 1 cup pure maple syrup (molasses), and 1 teaspoon of cayenne. Not only does this sound painful and unappetizing, the diet can also cause symptoms of cravings, aches, pains, irritability, and fatigue. Sounds fun, right?
Cleanses can be tricky, but can work wonders if you follow it responsibly. If you’re looking to do a cleanse, you should be prepared–most cleanses advise that you already eat a healthy diet. If you go back to a rich, fatty diet, you may encounter a rude awakening and end up in pain. After the cleanse, start by drinking fruit juices, eating soup, and lighter foods. Because this diet is considered a fasting diet, you should wait approximately four weeks before trying it again.Who knows, maybe you end up with a hot body like Beyonce!
