The Beyonce Diet ( Lemonade Diet)

The Beyonce Diet ( Lemonade Diet)

Many people want to know how to lose weight on The Lemonade Diet, and if it is even possible or if the diet is just a fad.


What is the Lemonade Diet?


The Lemonade Diet, also known as the Master Cleanse, has been around for many years. It was first explained in a book that was published in 1976, but has gained popularity in recent years because of a new book on the subject published in 2004.

The diet has also gained popularity as stories of celebrities using it to lose weight have circulated on the Internet and in magazines. Celebrities from Beyonce Knowles to Robin Quivers have credited the Lemonade Diet with helping them lose weight.

The Lemonade Diet is more accurately a fast, because you aren’t really eating anything when you are on the diet. It is meant to help cleanse the body of toxins, and allow the user to lose weight at the same time.

The diet involves drinking a sort of lemonade made with lemons, purified water, maple syrup and cayenne pepper. The drink is consumed throughout the day, and laxative tea is taken in the evenings.

Most people follow the Lemonade Diet for about 10 days, though some use the diet for as many as 40 days.

How to Lose Weight on the Lemonade Diet

When the diets is followed strictly, there’s really no question as to how to lose weight on the lemonade diet. You simply won’t be getting enough calories to not lose weight if you stay on this diet for several days.

This diet is tough on the digestive system and you will see a big increase in bowel movements during the cleanse, which is really what this “diet” was intended to be. It’s not really meant to be used as a diet, and any weight loss that happens while on it will probably be erased quickly thereafter.

That’s because once you start eating again your body will think that it has to prepare for another starvation cycle (which is what going on a fast is) and you’ll quickly gain back what weight you lost, and maybe more, unless you make a real effort to follow a healthy diet to maintain that weight loss.

The Lemonade Diet is not a long-term solution for weight loss. While it can help you to lose a few pounds temporarily, as any diet that involves not eating would, it’s not a permanent solution.

It’s a much better idea to think about the Lemonade Diet under its other name, Master Cleanse Diet, because the real idea behind the diet is cleaning impurities from the body, not losing weight.


The Master Cleanse is a detoxification process, which means that it aims to get toxins and other unsavory things out of the body. Those who regularly do detoxification like the Master Cleanse say that they feel more energetic and think more clearly after the process than they did before.

The only trouble is, it takes a lot of work for the body to eliminate the bad things that have been accumulating in it for so long. There are many cleansing or detoxification symptoms that you may experience, including:

  • Hunger or food cravings
  • Irritability
  • Tiredness
  • Aches and pains
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Hot or burning bowel movements
  • Headaches

Those who are experienced with detoxification describe these symptoms as signs that you are eliminating significant toxins from your body and say that it is likely you will feel much better then next day after having these symptoms.

If you are trying to figure out how to lose weight on the Lemonade Diet and you aren’t really interested in the detoxification effects, you might want to consider if a different diet plan is better for you, since losing weight on this kind of plan is difficult and usually not long-lasting. If you want to lose a lot of weight and keep it off permanently, this diet is probably not the best choice for you.





1. Clean your make up brushes every two weeks to remove bacteria and residue. If you

don’t, you just keep re-applying the filthy junk to your face!


2. Use a face primer before applying foundation to your skin. This minimizes the

formation of large pores and wrinkles.


3. Always use clean face towels for your face and body. Dirty towels promote bacteria

and germs that can cause acne.


4. Having greasy hair can be a factor in having oily skin which leads to blackheads.


5. Feed your face! Avocados contain vitamins A and C that can help slow the signs of

aging. A facial mask of honey and lemon enhances skin glow.


Now you have it! Get to work on these 5 easy D.I.Ys!

It’s important that everyone drinks a good amount of water every day to stay hydrated. However if you are in the process of losing weight, you should drink even more. Our bodies are made up of 70% water, so it is quite obvious that we need a very high daily water intake. Water helps to transport nutrients throughout our body and it also helps our cells determine how they are going to use the helpful nutrients. If you don’t drink enough water every day, your body may not be receiving the full benefit from the nutrients contained in your food. Water can also be helpful with curbing your appetite if you drink a full glass before during and after your meals.

CAF Not Sure How Much To Give Zambia For Winning AFCON

CAF Not Sure How Much To Give Zambia For Winning AFCON

THE Confederation of African Football (CAF) says it has not yet decided how much it will give Zambia for winning the Africa Cup but has refuted claims by FAZ that Zambia and Ivory Coast will share equally the K10.5 billion prize money.

CAF insisted the over US$2 million (about K10.5 billion) prize money for the 2012 winners is standards stipulated in its regulations.

On Thursday, FAZ general secretary George Kasengele claimed that champions Zambia and runners up Cote D’ivoire were allocated the same amount.

But according to Bolayathu, CAF director of communication Suleman Habuba said the issues are settled in the AFCON regulations. Habuba said from his Cairo base that he wasn’t sure and was not in aposition to categorically state the exact amount Zambia will get for winning the competition.

He said CAF had outlined allocations to all participating and posted the tabulations on its website.

“The percentages are already worked out. It’s on our website and you can check for the [amount for the] winners and runners up,” he said.

Habuba said winners forthe 2010 Africa Cup of Nations Egypt had already got their allocation and the same case will apply to the 2012 champions when disbursing the prize money.

According to the regulations which Habuba referred to, Zambia is entitled to 12 percent of total revenue from the 2012 AFCON proceeds while runners up Ivory Coast will get 11 percent.

CAF vice-president and head of the finance committee Suketu Patel announced two years ago that US $10million was a guaranteed allocation for teams that made it to the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations.

This followed CAF’s  record profits that had partly been earned from its marketing partners for contracts running up to 2016.

“It is but natura lthat our member associations ask as to how CAF will use its additional resources for better ment of football in Africa. We have already taken some measures which will see the percolation of these resources down to you. For example: We have increased distributions for all our competitions – from 2012 the total distributions for the CAN finalists is now a guaranteed $10m,” reads part of Patel’s message on the CAF website.

Assuming CAF did not make  any profit from the 2012 AFCON through merchandising, rights, television and broadcasting rights as well as revenues from publicity and match tickets,champions Zambia would have pocketed at least a guaranteed US $1.2 million fromthe US $10 million.

Kasengele, in an interview with the Zambia Daily Mail published Thursday, claimed that for winning the Africa Cup championship, Zambia will receive US$1 million and not US$2 million.

He was quoted; “I want to make it clear that it is not US$2 million we will be given for winning the Africa Cup. The US$2 million is meant for the two finalists, so both Zambia and Ivory Coast will get US$1 million each.”

Yet CAF financial statement clearly indicates that the winners (Zambia) will get 12 percent ofthe total revenue while the runners up (Ivory Coast) will pocket 11 percent.

This revenue is drawn from television and broadcasting rights, merchandising and the symbol exploitation rights which will guarantee Zambia’s share of over US $2 million for winning the tournament.

Although Kasengele, whose executive has failed to demonstrate minimum levels of accountability and transparency, attempts to portray an image they were not hiding anything by discussing revenue from Zambia’s AFCON victory falls short.

Apart from “lying about the correct amount of the prize money,” Kasengele also opted not to discuss CAF refunds which have gone in the pockets of FAZ officials.

The Ministry of Sport and Youth spent well over K300 million for Chipolopolo’s travel expenses to the competition which CAF has since refunded.

However, the air fare refunds have not been remitted to the government.

CAF regulations state that all participating teams would be refunded their expenses for preparations for three days before the tournament as well as air fare bills incurred to ferry a 30 member delegation to the competition.

Football House sources have since indicated that national team players are threatening to expose FAZ over their dues, a matter that prompted Kasengele, to issue a half-baked statement explaining they had not received the funds.

The sources have disclosed that Kasengele was also “economical with the truth” about the actual amount FAZ raked in following the AFCON triumph.

Kasengele claims K1.9billion was realised from pledges but FAZ records, according to sources,indicate that the announced figures differ from what is obtaining at the secretariat.

Herve Renards accepts Clifford's apology

Herve Renards accepts Clifford's apology

HERVE Renard says he has accepted Clifford Mulenga’s apology and will treat him like any other player.
In an interview, Renard said Mulenga was forgiven but could not clearly state whether the gifted winger was available for Chipolopolo selection.¨

“We have accepted his apology. He is one of the Zambian players for the national team. He is like the many thousand Zambian players,” Renard said.

Renard had vowed never to select Mulenga for national duty following the player’s misconduct at the recent Africa Cup.
Mulenga was banned from Chipolopolo after breaking camp rules on January 30 with four other players in Malabo during the tournament.
However, Renard warned that no player was bigger than Chipolopolo.

“We have to be strong. We were strong at the Africa Cup because of our spirit. We have to keep the spirit. In football it does not matter what name you are, you just have to be efficient all the time. I can assure you no one player will play for the Chipolopolo if he thinks he is the best player in the world,” he said.

Meanwhile, Renard has signed a one year endorsement deal with Trade Kings to promote Boom Bubble Plus detergent powder.
Trade Kings corporate affairs director Dr Bright Chunga said Renard had stood out as a champion.
He said that Chipolopolo’s Africa Cup success was not accident but came through hard work and discipline.

“Today we the team at Trade Kings which has produced Boom Bubble Plus washing powder wants to publicly recognise a fellow winner in Herve Renard,” Chunga said

However, Chunga could not disclose how much the deal was worth.
Renard said the deal by Trade Kings came as surprise but was happy because it would help to keep his “magical” white shirt clean which had become popular everywhere he went.
“I’m sure our collaboration (with Trade Kings) will be perfect. And I hope it will bring a lot of success,” he said.
