Should I exercise on the Lemon Cleanse/Lemonade Diet/Burroughs Cleanse?
This isn’t about whether I should do the diet itself. I am doing it and it has been used effectively for decades. This is about exercise.
I have done the Lemon Cleanse before (also known as the Lemonade Diet). I’ve done it three times, actually. It’s tough, but works. I found it to really help with cleansing out the system and shedding weight, too. I did my regular exercise back then (Pilates and aerobics) but it was a real struggle to do so. (I exercise almost every day.)
I have found out since doing the last Lemon Cleanse (about 18 months ago) that exercising does not really help with accelerating your cleansing/weight loss at all. I just feel like I want to do the cleanse and not exercise this time as it seems to wipe me out completely. But I feel like I will really fall off the exercise wagon (and throw in some guilt with that) if I take time off to just concentrate on healing and resting my body. Some people have lots of energy and keep doing their regular workout. From my experience, for myself, I have not found that to be true. I feel okay, but not with a lot of energy reserves.
Has any one else used the Lemon Cleanse and not exercised with it? How did it affect you…your health and your success on it?
