You could essentially be eating only chocolate for ten days and lose weight, or fried food only, or frosted dog turds, whatever… this ‘cleanse’ (read: FAST) was horrible for me. I lost weight, but also energy, social skills, mental alertness and any kind of lust for life. My eyes were hollow and sickly and I snapped at everyone around me.
A week after the diet, I gained back all the weight I’d lost, felt better and regained the energy I needed to actually EXERCISE and cook healthily for myself.
You can reap the purported benefits of this ‘cleanse’ simply by avoiding refined food and upping your water intake. The rest is strictly for the birds.
In short, this diet is bullshit and most likely just a way for some hick to sell more maple syrup. Avoid at all costs!
