I needed to clean my head and body of toxins and fat so I did 20 days on the lemonaid, cayenne and maple syrup fast. It was great. I never felt hungry. I had lots of energy so kept my schedule up no problem. I lost 15 pounds and feel really good. I would recommend this to anyone who needs change. 10 oz. good cold water 1 teaspoon maple syrup the good stuff grade A or better. 1/2 fresh squeezed lemon. Two dashes of cayenne pepper. I added two ice cubes and drank it from a straw. Thanks for this site. I love it!
I did the Master Cleanse Lemonade diet for both detoxing and weight loss. My first time out I remained on the lemonade for 21 days. I lost a total of 22 lbs and have kept it off no problem. I have done shorter periods on the lemonade and found that only going at least 21 days resulted in permanent weight loss. The first week is really just your body getting rid of water and toxins so you'll gain that weight back if you stop at just one week. The longer you can remain on the program the greater your detoxing and weight loss results will be. My eyes went from permanently bloodshot to bright white while on the lemonade. I had a ton of energy and no brain fog. One thing to note, if you suspect you may be someone with very low histamine levels this may not be for you. I have low histamine levels (histapenia) and I believe this diet lowers them ever further. I became very short tempered and testy during certain points in the fast. If you are interested look for Stanley Burroughs' book about the Master Cleanser fast
The Lemonade Cleanse. I lost 25 pounds. You take the juice of half a lemon, real genuine maple syrup grade A,B or C, (not the fake kind. 1/10th of a teaspoon of cayenne pepper. You mix that in with 10 oz of water. You drink this anywhere from 6 to 10 times a day. You don't eat anything else. The only other thing you want to take is an herbal lexative tea, and a salt bath. Drink the herbal lexative tea every night before you go to bed, then the salt bath every morning when you wake up. The recipe for the salt bath is 2 teaspoons of sea salt mixed in with a quart of luke warm water. Make sure to give yourself plenty of time before you leave the house, because after drinking the salt water mixture you will be going potty for about 2 hours. I'd buy the booThe Master Cleanser Book by Stanley Burroughs. This book explains the process and answers all your questions. You have to go on the diet for atleast ten days. I really gotta say, it cured my acid indigestion, depression, and all kinds of other things that were wrong with me. I'd reccommend it to anybody.
If you're diabetic you would use Molasses instead of the maple syrup. Just research it first, then go for it.
My Aunt Mary (who's quite heavy) and I (heavy, soon to be quite heavy if I don't do something to change things) were sitting in the emergency room waiting area waiting for news of my grandmother when this little old man leaned over and asked my aunt, "Would you like to lose some weight?" To her credit, rather than gasping, or blushing or getting affronted, Aunt Mary replied, "Absolutely." So the old man pointed to his little old wife and said, "Would you believe that she used to weight over 300 pounds?" Then the old lady took over. Apparently she'd been very heavy, but she stumbled across a weight loss secret that worked wonders for her. According to her, if you mix 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar (preferably the "light" rather than the "dark" kind -- but I've only been able to find the dark) and two tablespoons of honey in 1 quart of warm water (warm to dissolve the honey) and drink the mixture over the course of the day, the pounds just fall off. It worked for her, and for numerous friends of hers, and now she tells everyone she meets who she thinks might benefit from the info. I don't know if this works, but I'm giving it a shot -- after all, an extra quart of water per day certainly won't hurt, and ACV isn't bad for you. I'm finding the taste very unpleasant, but a few sips every hour or so is enough to get the whole quart down before the day is over. I don't know if this is easier or harder than the 2-3 tablespoons in a glass of water before meals option, but for those with irregular meal times and locations (like me), gradual consumption from a quart water bottle over the course of the day is an easy answer. We'll see if it works; in the meantime, I figured I'd give the nice old lady's advice a wider audience than a rural Missouri hospital waiting room. Fingers crossed!
apple cider vinegar (1/2 cup),
juice of two fresh squeezed lemons,
maple syrup (to taste), and
cayenne pepper (as much as you can stand) is a great weight loss combo.....
Go on a fast for one day, only sip this "lemonade" the second day, only liquids and this lemonade the third day, chicken noodle soup and the lemonade (or cabbage soup) the fourth day -- add fresh veggies, not carrots. And the fifth day, one regular meal and the lemonade, and you can be anywhere from 10 to 15 pounds thinner, and feel great!
I used to weigh 289 pounds, I now weigh 135 pounds... and no one believes I am soon to be 47 years old... I also give my hubby the same thing, but substitute black molasses for the honey as he is pre-diabetic. Gives him instant energy and helps him digest his meals and he feels less sluggish,... I love ACV!!
Mint and green tea: one cup at night and in the morning after breakfast, complete balance for healthy overall feeling, i try and it help me to be able to loose any weight i want. You need to be relax to be able to commit yourself to any endeavor. Add to it yoga or extreching and if you are happy you will do it again and againg. the most important part is to have fun doing it. Since you want to be healthy and because you love yourself. In general once you balance your hormones then you can feel good to do anything and that is what mint tea and green tea do.
Hi. I have been using home made syrup for weight loss, Ingredients are ; Honey, Apple Cider, ginger and garlic. I am also using lemon grass tea and wulong tea available in local market for weight loss.
Ever since I was using the syrup (i started using tea after three weeks of taking syrup) I am peeing more frequently.
I had a strong bladder and used to pee twice a day. Now I m peeing like every 2-3 hours.
My urine results are as follows:
Specific Gravity: 1.030
Red Blood Cells:1-2/HPF
Spot Urinary Protein:1.49 g/l
What do you suggest ?
I also feel muscles cramping in both legs.
Just wondering if anyone has any ideas for weight loss. I am 50 yrs of age, female, and for the life of me can't budge the weight. I am just overweight and would like to lose 5 kilos.
I have tried every diet around. I have just tried the low carbohydrate diet, gone off sugar, and any type of unhealthy food for months, drink lots of water, tried ACV, exercise, and cannot even lose half a kilo nor any cms either. Could my liver be the problem. If so what can I do about it. Any suggestions?
We have used parasite cleansers and caprylic acid which is a yeast supplenment to reduce Candida for weight loss. It has helped tremendously. Also, a no sugar and no wheat diet.
I need to lose 20 pounds and have tried everything, exercise, dieting- nothing helps. I'll lose a few pounds then gain it back without changing anything. I have been trying the ACV (2 tbsp per 16 oz drank throughout day)that I saw on this site for about a week but have seen no change. I have also taken EV Coconut Oil (and cut fat & calories from my diet to make up for it). I am taking antidepressants and had my gall bladder removed and was wondering if either of these factors could be contributing to the inability to lose weight. I also have Epstein Barr and fibromyalgia so I have been taking vitamins as well as COQ10 & L-Carnatine for about a year just to have some energy. Any suggestions? Getting this weight off is really important to me, I'll try anything at this point. Thanks.

This is both a weight loss and health issues question.
I REALLY need your help figuring this out.
Eight yrs ago I became very ill with an extreme flu for 3.5 mths, it seemed to mutate every mth. I was given 6 day antibiotic prescriptions 1 x mth for 1st 2 mths. No medication worked.
I had previously eaten a low-carb type lifestyle diet which does contain Healthy Carbs only for 4yrs (Somersizing) with no problems. Due to being ill for so long I gained 30lbs in the 3.5mths, not like me at all. I was barely eating anything each day, sometimes going 1-3days without food. After I got better (not well), & 4mths later, I still had "0" energy & felt sick most of the time. Almost every morning since.... immediately after waking I begin coughing violently (from my stomach not chest), as if I am about to vomit. If I do vomit, its more like spit and sometimes acid (haven't had any "food" at this point). I switched to water in the morning, found this didn't help much. This continues to this day, I've found recently if I drink 2 cups of sage tea before bed it does seem to settle this down.
My doc said "my body had taken a hell of a hit, and would just take time to get over it. About 5mths". I endured the 5mths, continuing my low-carb style WOE (eating only heathly carbs 1x per day). During that 5mths I gained another 10lbs & I really have no clue how. When I went back to the doc....he just shrugged his shoulders and told me to go home and rest that it may take up to another year. I believe this was a total copout on his part. 2 yrs later he finally tested my thyroid and sugar levels & said they were fine. Refuses to test my hormone levels because he doesn't beleive in HRT's (natural or chemical). I just wanted to know where my levels were at.
I've always been one of those people who found it easy to lose weight, then I hit a phase 11 yrs ago where I gained 25lbs and couldn't take it off. I then found my low-carb style WOE (Somersizing: note we DO eat healthy carbs) & lost all the weight over 3 mths & have stayed with it since with not one problem.
It's now 8 yrs later and I'm worse not better (more fatigued), and its a struggled just to do basics everyday. And have gained another 35lbs over time. I love my low-carb type lifestyle WOE (Somersizing) and won't change that. But over the past 3.5 yrs I've noticed something weird going on. I've tried to adjust my WOE to eliminate it, but this hasn't worked either. Instant, sometimes extreme heartburn. The only things that settle it down are homemade ginger tea.....and for instant relief until the ginger is ready, I've found sipping a small amount of cream really lessens the heartburn. I've tracked down some culprits. example: my decafe coffee. I thought it was the brand so I switched brands....nothing changed. So now I can only have 1 decafe coffee every 2nd morning. I do drinks Lots of water per day, and LOTS of veggies. I sometimes get the heartburn when drinking water too. I'm assuming I must be full of acid....any ideas what could be causing all of this? Acid or other.
I've have people suggest carb blockers (but I only eat healthy carb in the morning 4x per week), I can't see where they would help.
I've tried digestive enzymes, didn't seem to do anything. Although in fairness perhaps I didn't take them long enough.
I've been wondering if my body is having difficulty breaking down proteins/fats, and need something for that????
I've now tried sooooo many different "remedies" and am at a loss. And am not rich and tired of spending $$ on what doesn't work.
Various herbal & other supplements etc.
I also tried taking CLA & borage combo and drinking sage tea.
Yes, I've been back to the doc a few times.......but he has been NO help. The most he has said is that I need to lose the weight. Refuses to get down to business regarding the other symptoms.
I don't know whether all of this is connected to my being so ill so long ago or not. Or whether each issue is connect to others or not.
I only mentioned my WOE so you'll understand that I do not eat the regular standard Canada diet, no junk foods, no fast foods, no pop etc. Just healthy foods
If you have any ideas at all they would be welcome.
I'm sorry this is soooo long, but I'm afraid I could leave out a vital clue to figuring this out.
I am desperate now.... beginning to have physical problems due to overweight and fatigue.
Ted, any help you can give me in trying to figure this out would great be appreciated.

Better But With Side Effects
You may need to take 800 IU of Vitamin E with the Neem if you choose to use Neem for Weight Loss or whatever. It sometimes make me feel irritable. When I take the Vitamin E I do not have that problem.
It is better to take the Vitamin E before you leave the house, or put the whole bottle in your pocket, lest someone steps on your toes during a mood swing.

Neem Tea will do it if you can forgive it for tasting terrible. Was and am taking it for my hair. Not only did it help me keep the wait off the weight I lost from a Prayer consecration, It continues to take off the pounds. I did cut down on the starches and sweets, but I have done that before and still did not loose weight.
Perhaps the Neem Tea works because it never gives up on it job of being a diuretic. You have to drink plenty of water, like a gallon or more. If you don't your kidneys will be over drained.
I only drink one third cup a day. You must read up on Neem if you decide to go this way because it has a habit of lowering blood pressure . It is also used as a birth control pill. Yes you really need to check up on this one. It helps to heal wounds. I have some sores I had been opening and closing for years, because I love to pick at them when I am stressed. Now I can't picked at them they healed!
Well this is about weight loss, but read up before you drink up.

Hi, I would just like to share my recent experience with weight loss. A few months ago I had read about the Budwig diet where you mix cottage cheese and flax oil, how it helps with all kinds of ailments, including auto-immune disease, etc. So loving to experiment, I thought I'd try it. I had up to 4 Tblsp. flax oil a day with cottage cheese. I stayed on this for a couple months, during which I put on 8-10 lbs. I stopped the regiment and tried to lose the weight. Very healthy diet (whole food, vegetarian), little food, lots of food, no suppers, light suppers, exercise, occasional fasts, you name it. Nothing helped. I also tried the "good oil" theory (virgin coconut oil, cod liver oil), and I only put on more weight. ACV, and same.
Then I decided to go on a no free fat diet (no oils of any kind), and no sweeteners of any kind (no honey, molasses, nothing), but I wasn't fanatical if there was a little oil or honey in my bread. I was very careful not to put butter on my bread, no oil on veges, nothing like that. I also stopped any and all stimulants or spices, or anything fermented such as soy sauce, sauerkraut, ACV, etc. Of course no artificial stuff like pop. The first week I didn't notice anything. But the second week I lost 9 lbs. and I feel fantastic. I'm at the end of the second week. I have zero food cravings and eat my fill of whole foods with no free fats or sugars (meaning I eat fresh fruit, some dried fruit, and fats in their natural form such as olives, avocados and nuts (I eat small amounts of even natural fats, as they will overload your liver). I don't drink water with my meals, only between meals. I eat a light supper of a piece of toast (whole grain of course) and a pc. of fruit, around 5 or 6 pm. For breakfast and lunch I eat until I am full.
My conclusion was that the free fats were blocking proper hormonal function, and as long as I was doing that no amount of dieting would work. Now that the hormones are balanced, I don't have to starve, I feel great.
I hope this helps someone.
A whole grain bread company had opened up in our town which my husband and I discovered in January. So delicious, it became an addiction. Each week I'd go and buy a loaf of multi-grain bread and some whole grain muffins and fruit bars. I'd only have one slice of bread per day, but before I knew it I gained 4 pounds which I found impossible to take off. I cut back on calories, but I still had to have my one delicious slice of bread every day. At the same time that I gained the pounds, I also started looking older and unhealthy all of a sudden, which I couldn't understand since I eat very healthy food with lots of vegetables every day and exercise 5x a week. Anyway, a week ago I decided enough was enough and went on an anti-candida diet. I cut out all wheat and sugar from my diet. No more delicious bread! In the 7 days that I started my no wheat, no sugar diet, I have lost 4 pounds and look/feel much more healthy. My skin is glowing too. Now it wasn't like I ate a lot of sugar before starting on my diet, but I did have a teaspoon of brown sugar in tea about 4x a day. And then I was only eating 1 slice of bread a day. Not a lot, but even these small quantities were reaking havoc on my body.
I hope everyone who is having trouble losing weight will consider eliminating those 2 things from your diet. The results are fast and remarkable!
