Why Master Cleanse Did Not Work For Ashanti?

Ever wonder why weight loss diets have been prevalent these days? Have you ever tried searching for reasons why weight down programs and low-calories snacks have gained huge following of the most applauded celebrities in this sphere of existence? Aside from the health risks, social acceptance plays a leading role in this present day scenario. Media has grounded the fact that a celebrity is adorable and to-die-for if he or she struts s beautiful body– which is equivalent to tiny limbs and waistlines. A little flab on the side will surely entice cameras and paparazzis to take some snaps. And the next thing they now, it is in the front cover of a showbiz or lifestyle magazine. This is the social disadvanatage of gaining weight beyond the Hollywood standard.

With this streroetype, various diets, regimes and scientific eating habits and mea planes gained phenomenal Hollywood following. Diet pills, therapeutic exercises and activities have set everyone in complete daze. Among these famed diets is the Master Cleanse Diet. This particular diet was tried out by countless famous actors and music icons like Ashanti. But, why does this celebrated all-natural liquid diet did not work for Ashanti?

Prevalence and sudden increase in popularity of weight loss diets and food supplemets has become inevitable. One of the most talked about habits or program is the Master Cleanse diet which is currently being tried by RNB superstar and music mogul Jay-Z’s better half, Beyonce Knowles. Another famous in the music arena who has tried this regimen is Ashanti.

However, for this young icon, Master Cleanse deemed as a failure. Why?

Master Cleanse is not a weight loss technique. When it was developed and promoted in the 1940’s, Master Cleanse prime purpose is to detoxify the bidy systems from harmful toxins and bacteria that cause diseases like ulcers and some cancers. Weight loss was not even mentioned in its original portfolio. However, because of its flushing principle, some people have made to believe that Master Cleanse is a certified technique that promotes elemination of unwanted fats.

* Like any other diets, once you stop practicing principles of Master Cleanse, expect that your body will readily gain the weight lost within the duration of the program. The link between this diet and losing weight is the relatively and perhaps dangerously low amount of calories. For this reason, Master Cleanse may also be tagged as fad or crash diet.

Lastly, Master Cleanse, because it is a very low-calcium diet may cause rapid and abrupt loss of weight. Not only it is calcium-deficient, but also has very minimal vitamins and minerals content. With these things, various manifestations or even discomforts may be felt: headaches, dizziness and fatigue. Celebrities are always hard pressed each time and has seemingly unlimited work. This kind of lifestyle may not sit well with Master Cleanse.

If you are thinking about having a great health and lose weight, you can try Master Cleanse for a better heath, you can also visit Emma Deangela’s site on Master Cleanse for your body needs.

MAC did a tremendous job on the packaging for “To The Beach,” making each package look summery and unique. Much of this collection is sold out online at MAC Cosmetics Online , but much of the collection is available at your local MAC counter. The one piece from this collection that I had wanted for months was the “Marine Life,” highlighting powder, however, it sold out within an hour, and my MAC counter said the same thing. I will still be on my great hunt for “Marine Life,” but for now, I am extremely pleased with my purchases from the MAC To The Beach Summer 2010 Collection.
