Diet #10 The Maple Syrup diet

This was made famous when Beyonce used this to lose 1.5stones for her role in Dreamgirls. Who wouldn't want to look like this?

Recipe: Mix 2 tablespoons of maple syrup (around 20ml) with 2 tablespoons of freshly squeezed lemon juice, a pinch of cayenne pepper or ginger and half a pint of hot or cold water. 6-9 glasses per day.

You can do this as a full detox (just the drink for 10 days) or a 'relaxed' version (substituting one or two meals with 2-3 glasses of drink - and still no red meat, sweets, fried food, dairy etc). I'm going to do the full detox for as many days as I can and then switch to the relaxed version... Start weight for today, 10st 2lb.

In some ways, the most exciting thing about this diet is that it comes with a bag, and I LOVE a bag!!


  1. I guess lunch at ping pong is not an option this week then?!
    This diet sounds like madness! Good luck x

  2. Hmmm sounds an interesting one - might try doing the relaxed version with you (i cannot skip proper food at dinner time but could try the drink instead of breakfast and lunch). I have all ingredients apart from lemon but can pop out to the supermarket tomorrow!

  3. Yay, @Leanne, let me know how you're finding it. @Sara, I reckon I might need ping pong by Wednesday, don't you worry...
