Maple Syrup Diet aka Lemonade Diet

So several celebrities including Beyonce are promoting this supposed miracle diet called the Maple Syrup Diet or the Lemon Cleanse or the Maple Syrup Lemon Diet or whatever.

Even though Maple syrup has an abundance of trace minerals that are essential to good nutrition: potassium, magnesium, phosphorus, manganese, iron, zinc, copper and tin, as well as calcium, the fact is that Maple Syrup is still primarily a sugar. It should be enjoyed in moderation and as part of a good healthy diet. Don't bother with fads like this, you might lose some weight for a period of time but will do nothing to improve your overall health, instead try to keep your calories down and get some exercise.
