I love what CHEETARA79 said! She's right, the best cleanse IS the black bag one. Did it 2 months ago, never felt better!

I have never understood this lemon and maple "cleanse" thing, especially for weight loss. How is drinking lemonade supposed to make you healthy or help you lose weight? Is it because people don't know that maple syrup is sugar? (I actually knew a woman who was doing this, but real maple was too expensive so she was using Log Cabin or Mrs. Butterworth or one of those pancake syrups-- corn syrup and cane sugar with brown coloring. The "program" said to drink as much as you wanted, so she was drinking more than a gallon with about 2 cups of syrup per gallon. In other words, her "cleanse" was 1500-1800 calories of pure sugar!

So, original poster, if you DO try this against all advice, be SURE to pay attention to the calories and sugar in the drink. It's very likely no better for you than drinking several glasses of Coke every day instead of eating.

Not to hijack the thread, but I'd disagree with your characterization of Grade B maple syrup as not the good stuff. To me Grade B has much more flavor than Grade A. The grading of maple syrup is (I believe) based on color and has nothing/little to do with taste. Grade B is darker in color than Grade A, hence the 'lower' classification.

"The ingredients used in the supplement SOUND powerful and very natural*

"Sound" is the key word here. It's advertising hype. Heck it HAS to be, if they can make "Grade B" maple syrup sound like something virtuous.... it is, in fact, just SUGAR. And, not even the "good stuff" (which would be Grade A). Yes, they have taken a low-grade cast-off ingredient and made it sound miraculous. Such is the power of advertising.

Goal 3 - BMI = Normal (154# or less)

The only cleanse you should do is the Black Bag Cleanse. All you need is a huge, black trash bag. Go into your kitchen and CLEANSE all your shelves, cupboards and the fridge of all the junk food.

You don't have to eat the whole thing.

I'm borrowing a phrase from another poster here, Dragonchilde: Your body isn't a toilet so it can't be flushed!

NO Your body does a fine job of detoxing itself...no need for nasty drinks, pills, or any other form of detox or cleanse. Save your money and time--buy yourself some nutritious whole unprocessed foods, prepare your own meals, and get some exercise. That's all the cleanse you'll ever need.

You won't find much support for that kind of stuff here. No harm in asking (of course), but you might want to do a search of the boards for previous posts about this.

SparkPeople doesn't recommend any kind of detoxes, for a few reasons. One is that any weight you lose while on it is just going to come back as soon as you start eating normally again. Another is that it can actually mess with the balance of healthy bacteria in your system, making you sick. I'd skip it and stick with a healthy diet and regular exercise.

I have come across a lemon detox drink recently. The ingredients used in the supplement sound powerful and very natural.

What drew my attention is that I can consume the supplement with my regular meals. They have also used Organic Maple Syrup Grade B. Should I go for it?
