Master Cleanse Diet Pros
Additionally, not eating conventionally raised meats, eggs and dairy eliminates artificial hormones, antibiotics, mycotoxins from grains fed to these animals, and other poisons lightens toxic burden on the body. Ceasing to eat vegetables and fruits heavily sprayed with insecticides removes another big source of toxins.
Some people feel better on this detox program simply because they have stopped putting poisons in their bodies!
Do the dangers ultimately outweigh the benefits..?
Master Cleanse Diet Cons
Lean muscle mass is broken down to supply energy. This is a survival mechanism that would keep you alive and marginally maintain body function if you could not get food for a period of time.
Continual consumption of pure sugar. Constant consumption of maple syrup has several dangers.
Sugar eaten in the absence of sufficient protein, vitamin and mineral consumption will STEAL these elements from your body (because they are used to metabolize the sugar)!
Two, sugar raises triglycerides in the blood.
Three, sugar demineralizes bones and teeth. The minute amount of minerals in Grade B maple syrup can't possibly offset the deleterious effect of all the sugar.
Last, but certainly not least, sugar fosters the growth of fungal forms such as candida yeast.
Can Play Havoc With Thyroid Function!
Too many people are already hypothyroid (low thyroid), lacking energy and the metabolic fire to burn calories!
Pile a starvation diet on top of that, and voila! you lower thyroid function even more. When normal eating is resumed, the pounds pile on even faster because the body's metabolism is set too low to burn a normal amount of calories. This is how yo-yo dieting (including periodic voluntary starvation!) accomplishes the exact opposite of its weight loss and cleansing objective!
THIS HAS ALWAYS BEEN MY CONCERN WITH THE CLEANSE
EVEN AFTER HEARING GREAT THINGS ABOUT IT
OUR MAIN CONCERNS SHOULD BE TO BALANCE OUT BLOOD SUGAR
WHILE INCREASING OUR METABOLISM
I GET THAT THE SYRUP & LEMON BLAH BLAH HANDEL THAT
BUT WHAT ARE YOU BURNING WHEN THE SUGAR IS GONE
YOU ARENT BURNING FAT? YOU WOULD BE BURNING MUSCLE
JUST PLEASE BE CAREFUL
IF YOU EVER ATTEMPT SOMETHING LIKE THIS
YOU HAVE TO GO BY THE BOOK
AND COME OFF IT PROPERLY
OR IT CAN DO MORE HARM THAN GOOD
