Now that we glimpse the impending arrival of spring and summer turn back into fashion the diets.
This time we echo a diet used by many people across the country: ‘Cura sap and lemon’.
It is recommended that for seven or ten days this cure, which can be repeated a few times a year, always under medical supervision.
The first three days of the process our body goes to feed the accumulated it as glycogen reserves that is easily digestible, making the cure should last more than three days. From the fourth day is when we will begin to eliminate toxins and fat reserves stored in different parts of the body.
This process will not feel hungry only when fat stores are exhausted it is when hunger returns and indicates that it is time to eat again.
Another indicator of the progress of the cure is the tongue. During detoxification tongue covered with a white or yellowish layer, when it turns pink and clean color means that the purification process has been completed.
Other consequences of detoxification are the darkest and urine with a pungent odor, bad breath and a bad taste. All this disappears as increases the success of the treatment.
For the cure is bearable is advisable to take herbal teas, especially mint, which favors the purification process and neutralizes the bad taste and bad breath possible.
For a glass of the cure are needed:
- Juice of 1/2 fresh lemon freshly squeezed
- 2 tablespoons syrup sap
- A dash of hot cayenne powder
- ¼ liter of mineral water cold or warm, but not hot
For a full day of the cure are needed:
- 2 Litre mineral water cold or warm, but not hot
- 16 tablespoons tablespoons syrup sap
- 3 fresh juice freshly squeezed lemons

The transition from cure of sap and lemon juice to a normal diet is almost the most important method. The temptation to eat after fasting is great but the digestive system has taken a break and need to gradually get used to the usual schedule so we must control excess dietary change.
Over the coming days we will gradually adding foods starting with vegetable broths, brown rice or whole grains. Is important to to consider that we should not eat meat, fish, eggs, bread, coffee, biscuits, sweets or animal milk during the first week following the cure.
Should be remembered that the intention of making the ‘cure of sap and lemon’ must be cleanse the body of toxins that we accumulate, so that the better our retail food poisoning is that we generate.
