Beyoncé's Lemonade Diet - Does It Work?

The reason many of our clients see us for weight loss surgery in Los Angeles is because most diets do not work. But we wanted to check out this Lemonade Diet/Master Cleanse because celebrities including Beyoncé have used it.

The diet is a liquid-only diet consisting of three things: a lemonade-like beverage, salt-water drink, and herbal laxative tea. The claim is simple: Give it 10 days (or more) and you’ll drop pounds, "detox" your digestive system, and feel energetic, vital, happy, and healthy. You’ll also curb cravings for unhealthy food.
It all started with Stanley Burroughs’s book, The Master Cleanser. There are many variations, and Peter Glickman continues Burroughs’s legacy with his own book, Lose Weight, Have More Energy and Be Happier in 10 Days, and web site.
Does It Work?

Because you're getting so few calories, you'll probably lose weight.  You’ll also be losing muscle, bone, and water.  And you're likely to gain the weight right back. It’s far from the principles of  
healthy eating, and the results aren't likely to last.

There's no proof that detoxifying leads to long-term weight loss. Plus, you don't need to detox your body -- your liver takes care of that. For lasting change, you're better off eating a healthy diet of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, low-fat dairy, and lean proteins like fish, skinless chicken or turkey, and healthy fats like olive oil.
If eating healthier still doesn't help you lose weight, give Dr. Feiz & Associates a call at 310-855-8058 and we'll discuss what methods, including weight loss surgery, will work best for you.
