NEW YORK – With Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore being the newest celebrities to try the Master Cleanse diet, will this unsafe diet become the newest old fad diet?

The premise is that if you consume 10-45 days of liquids that include lemon, honey and cayenne pepper, you will detoxify the body of toxins and lose weight.  What is not mentioned is that by consuming as little as 600 calories a day you put your body in starvation mode.

To keep your vital organs functioning, your body uses a small bit of fat, but mostly protein from your muscles. That’s the good stuff you want to keep, not flush down the toilet.

And P.S., there’s no scientific proof that the process detoxifies anything.  The new, old fad diet is not a permanent solution, no matter how good Demi may look.
