Is it a bunch of horse patootie or does it actually help cleanse? And why the maple syrup? That sounds like extra sugar calories one wouldn't want while trying to cleanse. Would it be better without it?

NO doubt in my mind, dear weeirishfolk. ANY form of TASTE perverts the cause of justice... I mean, fasting. And there's, apologies for the oft repeat, NOTHING you can put INTO you that takes things OUT. Except for some poisons like laxative that induce the loss of intestinal secretions.

The lemon cleanse is not all bad. But its main function is to help you avoid ingesting more/other bad stuff..you'll cleanse a lot quicker without.

What I'm looking for a gentler fast, I don't want the fastest way yet, I have to get a new job so I still need to be able to function. The maple syrup to me sounds like a bunch of garbage and herbert shelton believe peppers were toxic to the body so both those are out but do you think a little fresh squeezed lemon juice might help me get the gentler results I'm looking for?

The gentlest fast, dear weeirishfolk, is actually pure water. Then your body has NO chemicals (natural or otherwise) to process, your appetite is NOT stimulated by tastes and your body receives a CLEAR message that it has now to use your fats. What can be easier or more gentle than a total rest?

But I do understand what you really mean. We have been psychologically brainwashed and conditioned into reflexes since birth, and going with them can actually feel easier. Just remember it is not easier on the body, only on the programmed mind.

I have tried the "lemon cleanse" to find out for myself even though the maple syrop part did not sound appealing.

My experience is that you can add lemon when you start the fast but usually, your body will tell you in a day or so (if you care to listen), that it much prefers water anyway.

Maple syrop is pure sugar, so if you must put something sweet, I would use honey (manuka Q10). As for the pepper, it stimulates the circulation but really, has nothing to do with fasting.

So, my conclusion is: lemon clense is a gimmick. water is much better.
