Following the popular Master Cleanse, can you shape-up like this dream girl?
Beyonce Knowles of Dreamgirls fame, has gone public to share how she gets in shape for her movie roles and appearances. She uses what is known as the Master Cleanse, or the Maple Syrup Diet. Beyonce's diet is a cleanse, meant to detoxify the body of all previous food intake, and help the person drop water weight, which can add unwanted pounds on film.
The program is a simple mixture of Grade B Maple syrup, fresh squeezed lemon juice, spring water and cayenne pepper that a person drinks for no more than 10 days. Pioneered by Stanley Burroughs in the 1950s, its practitioners and participants claim that not only do they lose weight, but they see better, smell better, hear better and feel better, while also ridding their bodies of ailments that have afflicted them for years.

This is a cleanse, and cannot be recommended without prior medical evaluation. Ask your physician if you are healthy enough to carry out this very restrictive regimen before beginning. While weight loss experts have touted the benefits of a healthy bowel system, but forcing the bowel to cleanse, may cause future problems for a person when they begin to eat their regular food routine. No one can argue the success Beyonce has had with this diet.Common Misspellings
