Hi there. My name is Isabelle. I am a nutrition consultant in the Tampa Bay area and today we're going to learn about lemon cleansing diet recipe. It is very easy. First off, you need a lemon, of course. I cut this one here in half and what you want to do, you want to squeeze that lemon in about a cup of water, just about this size; and, I use this tool, personally, to squeeze my lemons. One lemon should be plenty for this size of water. So, we are going to squeeze the lemon in the water and this one is very juicy so actually we need only half. I'm going to use just half the lemon this time because it produces a lot of juice. Now, because lemon is bitter, I want to sweeten it a little bit and so, what I'm going to do for this is use one teaspoon of pure maple syrup which I'm going to mix right here with my water and my lemon. Lemon, although it tastes very bitter, it actually helps alkinalise your body, which is why it help cleanse the body. Maple syrup is a very powerful anti-oxidant and also antiseptic so it helps with that as well. And the last thing we're going to need for our recipe here is just a pinch of cayenne pepper. If you have any fungus in your digestive tract, cayenne pepper will kill it. They hate it. So, it's a nice concoction to have. It is a little strong but you want to drink it very slowly and you want to make several of these throughout the day. In one day, you may have five, six, seven, eight, depending on how thirsty you get. It is okay to drink water in between. In fact, ideally you should drink half your body weight in ounces of water so it is a good idea to drink ample water without anything in between. I would do one of these, then two glasses of water, one of these, two glasses of water, you know, throughout the day. And that's it. That's the recipe. Simple as that. I hope you learned something new today. I'm Isabelle and I look forward to speaking with you soon. Take care.
