maple syrup diet

maple syrup diet

A popular diet that consists of drinking up to 10 cups/day of a mixture of maple syrup, lemon juice, water and cayenne pepper. It has no nutritional value: it lacks proteins, essential fatty acids, fibre, vitamins and minerals. It leads to weight loss only because it severely restricts the daily calorie intake, and is a medically dangerous diet.
