12 TBsp of Pure Organic Lemon Juice (you need to squeeze your own juice, the stuff in the bottle is not good enough)

There are a ton of reasons why this addition is great for the detox (check their site if you'd like more info) But basically, it will add some protein, and really boost the detox process along.
For the record, we do drink a ton of filtered water, along with the occasional herbal tea during the day. Also, first thing in the morning, we do the dreaded salt flush, and at night we take a bunch of fibre pills (make sure yours don't include psyillium husk~ as it will just constipate you!)
Don't forget to get plenty of rest, excercise (or at least stretching/yoga), add in some beneficial body brushing, some epsom salt baths, infa-red saunas, meditation, massages, and anything else that you think will help!
here are a few sites that talk about the master cleanse (diet/detox) if you'd like more info about it (and if you're thinking of doing this, you really should!!)...
