Product Description


This is the first book written exclusively about the Master Cleanse (also called the Lemonade Diet) since it was developed and published by Stanley Burroughs in 1976. Made even more popular by Robin Quivers, Howard Stern's producer, and Beyonce, to lose weight for her role in the movie "Dreamgirls", 100,000-plus people do this cleanse each year to detoxify, lose weight, have more energy and feel happier. Requiring no special shakes or pills, the ingredients can be found in nearly any health food store. This book, currently in the second edition, includes 70 most frequently asked questions, personal experiences and testimonials of the more than 100 people who did the Master Cleanse in January 2004.Mentioned in the "NY Times", "London Times", "NY Daily News", "Us Weekly", Geraldo's web blog and on NBC's "Today Show", both first and second editions have consistently been on Amazon's "Alternative Medicine" bestseller list. This is the only book about the Master Cleanse that discusses detox symptoms and what to do about them and tells what to expect while on the cleanse.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Master Cleanse has changed my life!!! 8 Nov 2010
By Reader
This book is really worth getting. My life has changed so much since doing the master cleanse. At the start of 2010 I was clinically depressed, suffering from CFS, overweight and generally miserable. I bought this book and did my first cleanse and it was amazing. I kicked my caffeine, tobacco and alcohol habits; stopped taking prozac and felt healthier than I had in years.
I am now on my second cleanse and am reaping even more benefits than the first one. I have lost a stone, have more energy than ever before and my skin and hair is softer than ever before. For those who think you will have no energy on this cleanse, think again. I am on day 8 and went for a 4 mile run today
The cleanse is not easy but will help you spiritually, physically and mentally
Buy this book!!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Dangerous Diet 14 Jun 2011
Brought this as I wanted to loose weight and quickly. later spoke to a very good friend who is a Dr and she quite clearly told me to streer very clear of this (and similar diets) book and techniques. You will loose weight for sure, but a) it will be at the detriment of your health and b) you will put it back on. Do what I did and eat sensibly and exercise, its the harder way but a) it will improve your health and b) the weight will stay off

1.0 out of 5 stars Cheap and nasty. 7 May 2010
By Mossy
This book isn't very informative and quite often resorts to scare tactics. I was utterly starving and although I lost some weight, I put it staight back on again + more.
This is a short term fix.

5.0 out of 5 stars I did it! Thank you, Peter! 30 April 2007
By A Reader - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Peter Glickman's "Have More Energy & Be Happier in 10 Days, Second Edition" is a definite aide in doing Mr. Stanley Burrough's "Master Cleanser" program. REMEMBER that this is not a DIET but a CLEANSE. This means you only do this periodically, like yearly, for 10 days or more in a single cleanse.


- This is not a DIET that one can adopt. This is a TEMPORARY CLEANSE. Just as undergoing surgery is not a new way of life but a short-term treatment where you actually leave the operating table. Think of cleansing for a colonoscopy - you don't continually cleanse for the rest of your life - so don't use the excuse that this is a dangerous diet.
- This is very DIFFICULT IF YOU DO NOT FOLLOW the instructions to the letter.
- The Salt Water Flush is horrible tasting but is ABSOLUTELY necessary in order to remove toxins quickly. Do it even if it is unpleasant for you.
- Buy organic. Use the products as directed. Why would you cleanse to remove toxins and simultaneously add toxins during the cleansing program!

I first tried the "Master Cleanser" diet in 2005 and then again in 2006. Both times, I only made it 3 days because I chose to do this diet on my vacation. That did not sit well with my family who wanted to go out and have nice dinners. So, I tried it this time while still working AND with the use of this book by Peter Glickman.

I highly recommend starting this on the night before starting a 3-day weekend or 3 full days off of work. This is only due to the requirement to be near a bathroom during the flushing phase after coming off of solid foods. I truly mean it when I say that you MUST be near (like 2 feet away) a bathroom the first 3 days. I started it at work and had to leave to go home since I was 50 feet away from the bathroom.

I am starting my fourth cleanse in August. During my cleanse in 2007, I made it the entire 10 days. I lost 16 pounds in these 10 days and could truly feel the detoxification. This book and Peter Glickman's book truly helped me with the symptoms that I would experience as the fast went on day to day. Peter includes a great section of questions and answers that address the majority of the issues that people have in conducting the Master Cleanser fast.

The goal is to detoxify the body to the point that one's tongue returns to a natural bright pink color, as most of us have polluted our bodies to the point that we have a whitish coating on our tongues. I did not make it until my tongue was bright pink, but I did gain the benefit of the 10 day fast. My skin became smooth and soft. My energy felt higher. My concentration was clearer in the second half of the fast.

By days 5, 6, 7, and 8, I must warn that you will definitely feel the effects of detoxification. I described it as having a "headache" over my entire body. As long as one has the Lemonade, one can satisfy any hunger. One will experience yearnings for food whenever one smells others eating.

I loan my multiple copies of the two publications "The Master Cleanser" by Stanley Burroughs and "Lose Weight, Have More Energy & Be Happier in 10 Days, Second Edition" by Peter Glickman to everyone I care about. These two books combined are truly the greatest self-healing guide that I have ever used. I highly recommend this if you are experiencing the effects of poor nutrition, such as obesity, HBP, type II diabetes, gout, etc.

5.0 out of 5 stars JUST DO IT!!!!! 27 Jun 2006
By Susan B. - Published on Amazon.com
I just wrote a great, long review for this book and tragically, in the editing process it suddenly disappeared from my screen!!! So here's the short version: The book is VERY helpful. Get it. I just did the cleanse. It's GREAT. You can do it, too! One tip that's not in the book: for the sake of your tooth enamel, rinse your teeth after drinking the lemonade. Want to feel and look better fast? Do yourself a favor and give this book and cleanse a try.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lose Weight, Have More Energy & Be Happier in 10 Days, Second Edition 24 Feb 2006
By J. M. Stephens - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I can't deny the benefits of this diet. The book is a quick read, provides basic instructions with simple explanations for each portion of the diet and is very specific about which products you need. The diet on the other hand, is 10 days of drinking things that taste terrible (especially the 32 oz. of salt water each morning - good luck with that one) and about 80 trips to the can every day. I recommend taking the week off or working from home unless you have a private facility for yourself at your place of employment.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book answered every question I had about the Master Cleanse. 2 Sep 2005
By pizzagirl - Published on Amazon.com
This is a life-saver for anyone doing the Master Cleanse and it is inspirational too! After reading this book, I know what to expect during the cleanse and why things happen. It describes the detox symptoms and which days are the hardest to get through. This book gives the reader a so much more information about how to do the cleanse than the original Master Cleanser book and why certain things are important. The shared experiences of other people in the book helped me know that I'm not the only one with a specific question about the master cleanse. I've had so many questions and I found all the answers right here.

5.0 out of 5 stars It sure worked for me! 9 May 2005
By Jon Lumsden - Published on Amazon.com
I read Peter's book and did the cleanse with great success! As I did the cleanse, I already knew what to expect because it was covered so well in his book. Knowing about the detox symptoms and why I would feel good one day and bad the next, kept me going. Knowing which days were likely to be the worst was invaluable! I probably would have given up on the cleanse, but reading other people's reactions as they went through the cleanse day-by-day kept me on track. I'm so glad Peter put those in his book. I also bought and read The Master Cleanser by Stanley Burroughs and am so glad I read Peter's book also. Burroughs' book didn't mention the five classes of detox symptoms, which days are usually the worst, or have answers to the numerous questions I and others had. I was impressed that Peter kept the actual procedure of the Master Cleanse/Lemonade Diet exactly as Stanley Burroughs wrote it and gave full credit to Stanley Burroughs. It's nice to see someone that caring and honest. Burroughs book was the first, but I liked the simplicity and reading ease of Peter's book.
