Five days eating normally, two days fasting.

According to recent studies, fasting in various forms can be as good for our health as our waistlines. From reducing the risk of disease to helping transform bad eating habits and subsequently shed unwanted pounds, short periods of fasting is becoming increasingly popular around the world.
While fasting programmes such as the new 5:2 Diet, the 4:3 Diet, and the Alternate Day Fast (or Day On Day Off Diet) are on the rise, the reality is that fasting is tough… Which is where the Lemon Detox can help.
A tried and tested formula, the Lemon Detox provides the body with the essential nutrients and calories for any fasting programme, while warding off hunger and retaining energy levels.
The Lemon Detox provides a great way to gain the required 500 calories on ‘fast’ days (one glass equals approximately 100 calories) – a welcome and more convenient alternative for those who struggle to work out what and how much they can and can’t eat.
Dr Sarah Brewer, author of The Total Detox Plan, says “During the ‘fasting’ part of any diet or detox regime, using the Lemon Detox Madal Bal Tree Syrup solution allows you to still obtain useful nutrition, especially minerals such as potassium, calcium, manganese and zinc, making it a useful alternative to plain water.”
And nutritionist Amanda Griggs from London’s Balance Clinic says, “The Lemon Detox provides a great alternative on fast days as you can get the calories and nutrients you need without thinking too hard about it.”
Sold in over 30 countries worldwide and boasting a hotlist of celebrity fans, the Lemon Detox formula is made up of Madal Bal Tree syrup, fresh lemons, cayenne pepper (or ginger) and water.
