My Daily Cleanse Water

Daily Cleanse Water Recipe Have you ever attempted the ‘master cleanse’? I am definitely not that brave! A cleanse of any kind would probably just make me cranky and crazy and dying for carbs. A few years ago I my pilates teacher, who, of course, was already a string bean, completed the whole thing and it sounded just awful. But she did introduce me to the benefits of water with lemon and cayenne pepper. Now my cleanse water is part of my daily routine!

  • Lemon juice and cayenne pepper are both immune boosters and natural detoxifiers.
  • Lemons aid digestion, help fight hunger cravings, and help stimulate the liver to remove toxins.
  • Cayenne pepper helps the body sweat out toxins while improving blood and lymphatic circulation so your cells get more nutrients.

Cleanse Water with Ginger + Lemon Plain water has never been my thing, and this combination makes it much easier to up my intake. Squeeze half of a lemon and add a dash of cayenne pepper to your water and stir. Add a few chopped slices of ginger too for more detox and weight loss benefits (yes, please!). You can add a tablespoon or so of honey for a touch of sweetness. I’ll make a big water bottle of this in the morning and drink throughout the day. It’s perfect for banishing afternoon sugar cravings – definitely my biggest weakness!

What are your tricks for drinking more water? Have you ever tried a cleanse?

    I don’t need to lose weight but I also have trouble drinking plain water. I have also been really aware of my sugar intake (added or processed) after my father was diagnosed with diabetes, and I’ve realized that I have been consuming and drinking WAY more than is “recommended” daily… In fact, most products out there have more than 25g per serving, sometimes double. It’s crazy. I’ve cut back on my sugar intake and now find that most foods and drinks with sugar in them even make me sick now, and things I once consumed a ton of are now just too syrupy or sweet for me.

    But plain water throughout the day has never been my thing, even though I find myself enjoying it more than I used to. I’ve found that Izze and other similar sparkling fruit juice drinks are growing in popularity though, and what’s great is they are natural sugars, not added, because all they contain are pretty much fruit juice and sparkling water. So now I have been getting those and any other similar products at my local market and stocking up at home and at work. I LOVE fruit so the combo of fruit and water has been excellent for me. It’s like having a soft drink without all the added sugar. :D

    What’s also great is that (sorry, TMI incoming), my urine is also clear after drinking sparkling water/fruit juice all day, which wasn’t the case for me when drinking soda and other syrupy type drinks. So I guess that’s how I drink more water without having to drink nothing BUT water.

    I did the Master Cleanse for 10 days, using the lemons, cayenne pepper, and pure maple syrup. The first day, I thought it tasted terrible but then I couldn’t get enough. I drank it at room temperature during the day, and at night I would drink it heated, like soup. I didn’t do it to lose weight, but I lost 12 pounds in the process. I immediately regained the weight as soon as I started eating solid foods, but I felt incredible (but only after the fifth or sixth day.) I would definitely do it again…someday!

    I have tried this fact, after 3 days my husband caved and started eating baby food banana’s to make it through..we lasted 5 days and gave up! I generally drink 70+ oz. of water during the day (work day) and another 20 at home after work. I really, really like the cold pressed, crystallized lemon and lime product (True Lemon and True Lime.) It is unsweetened and no artificial sweetener either…and best yet, you can carry it in your purse and have it whenever you need it. It certainly makes drinking so much water a lot easier!

    Not brave enough for a full cleanse either, however I will try your water recipe and drinking throughout the day sounds like a good plan.

    My first attempt at a cleanse was a distaster but I feel so gross lately from cooking (and eating!) so much that I’m thinking about trying it again in a few weeks. I could never do the Master Cleanse though–that is way too hardcore for me. I love the lemon drink, but I couldn’t drink nothing but that for such a long time!

    Lemon! Ginger!
    I love both and, having them ready, I immediately tried this – though not for cleansing reasons ;)
    It’s very refreshing. The cayenne burns on my lips, so I will leave it out next time.
    Thank you for sharing this!

    I’ve never had any interest in doing a major cleanse because my body doesn’t respond well to a lack of solid food, but it would be cool to try to incorporate some cleansing into my daily life. I’ll have to try this out!

    Yes! I am currently doing the 30 Day Isagenix cleanse, and I have to say… I am loving it! first 3-5 days were hard… But now I feel on fire!! I may definitely incorporate this lovely recipe into my daily diet once I am complete with this major cleanse! Thanks so much for sharing.
