Should you use the whole lemon, or just the juice for the Master Cleanse

by Raylen on July 1, 2007

 Here’s a question from Tim asking about whether to use the whole lemon, or just the juice.

I am about ready to start the Master Cleanse Diet tomorrow, July 2. This afternoon I went shopping for my needs and found it a little difficult but not to bad.

My question though is, for the lemons it asks for 2 tbls of juice. But in the manual it tells you if you are going to use non-organic lemons to cut away the peel. this led me to believe that I should use the whole of the lemon. Without knowing either way I proceeded to mix the whole lemon in my commercial mixer to liquid form and mix with the other ingredients. Is this wrong or right?

like I said I am just starting tomorrow so now would be a good time to find out the right way.

Thank for your help.

Sincerely Tim, in Maine

Good question Tim, and you’re right on track with peeling away the skin if you’re using non-organic lemons. For the best results you should avoid non-organic lemons all together.

As for blending up the entire lemon my advice would be to make sure you wash the lemon throughly before doing it. Even organic fruit can pick up nasty stuff during shipping, or germs from the employees and customers who handle the food at the store.

As long as you do that you should be fine.
