Either way, now you know it's ... Beyoncé


Queen Bey is widely rumoured as a champion of this bonkers-sounding diet. It's one that's been knocking about for years called the 'master cleanse' or, more recently, 'the maple syrup diet'.


Here's what the diet suggests you 'eat' six times per day and instead of real human food:


  • 2 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp organic maple syrup
  • 1/10 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • Half a pint of water

That's just 600 calories a day. Most people should have around 2,000. Probably the most bananas element of all is that you're supposed to do this for 14 days. We'll stick to normal delicious food, thanks.
