The Beyonce Miracle Detox, aka the master cleanse, is being touted as helping you shed up to 20 lbs in ten days! It’s intense, people! The instructions call for 10 days of only drinking this every day and no FOOD, then on day 11, you can gradually add back in foods to your diet… for the full rundown, you can go HERE. I personally, in good conscience, sign off on anything that requires NOT eating!! I frankly think just drinking water for 10 days might just kill me. Or might result in me killing or harming another person… So I decided I would try doing a super modified version of this detox to see if its “magically” detoxing powers worked on a more manageable scale.

So I set out to do a 7-day cleanse, aligning it with my ROCK STAR 7-day detox plan+ cheat sheets {which is awesome by itself, but when you add it with one of these excellent detox waters, you get crazy amazing results!

Beyonce's Magical Go To Detox... Said to help you shed up to 20lbs in 10 days Check out this honest review!

The good news it worked like a charm. I lost 7lbs and my stomach looked impressive, and I did actually feel really good after the fact! Now for the BAD news, cuz it’s BAD!!! This stuff is NASTY!! I literately had to gag this crap down… I was not a fan! However, one reader recommended using cayenne pepper capsules  – This would make this detox 1000% more doable! 

** Update: I have redone the Beyonce Go To Detox (Master Cleanse) with the capsules and had awesome results!**

Bottom Line: It works but definitely NOT for the faint of heart, and you need a strong stomach! OR  just grab the Cayenne capsules! Oh, and make sure and grab your copy of my detox cheat sheets! They will make the whole process WAY easier! Or, if this detox seems a bit too extreme, check out some of my many other detox water reviews.

  1. elieth giron says:

    if i cant get the organic Grade B maple syrup doesnt matter?

  2. Jennifer Marshall says:

    how many times a day did you drink this? and how long did the recipe above last for you?

    1. You drink the gallon throughout the day and make it daily for the 3-5 days you choose to complete the cleanse! Good Luck!

  3. Did you eat anything else while on this diet?

    1. Yes!! Stick with No carbs and lean white proteins and lots of veggies, for the best results 🙂

  4. I’ve done this diet. Better to get cayenne pepper capsules instead of putting it in the water. You take them 3 times a day while drinking the lemon juice, and the organic syrup (I used natural maple syrup), and water mixture. Trust me it works. But I included one big healthy meal a day. It works.

    1. Brandi! That definitely sounds like the smart way to go! I about died trying to chug that mixture.. Not to mention my lips were on fire 😉 I’ll have to revisit it and try and again with your suggestion!

      1. Elizabeth says:

        Where would one purchase cayenne pepper capsules?

  5. does this give you an upset stomach? Are you pooping the weight off? Just thought I’d throw
    that out there

  6. can I use honey instead of maple syrup?

    1. I haven’t tried it with honey — I would stick to the recipe on this one. Since detoxes are pretty concise to have them work just right!

      1. Do you need to melt the maple syrup w warmer water when making?..I feel like this might get . Thick and stick to the bottle w maple syrup and cayenne powder?

        1. Just straight out of the jug should do it! Mixing it with the water in a shaker style bottle works best!

  7. What did you think of the 3 day military diet and the Julian Michaels detox drink? It won’t pull up.

  8. Shaun Roney says:

    This is actually called the Master Cleanse. It has been around since 1940. My sister and dad swear by it. It is meant to rid the body of all toxins and “reset” your metabolism. The specific ingredients are necessary to make sure that nutrient requirements are met. Here’s the link to the actual website:
