Amazon.com: Learning How To Eat (again) Ebook: Brian V. Menard: Kindle Store

It is ironic that in his book the diet aspect of his Cleanse is barely mentioned, he simply refers to his Cleanse being used when overweight has become a problem. Stanley Burroughs was a God fearing veganist who believed that all disease is man made and can thus be eradicated without need of medical intervention. Perhaps his theories influenced the modern day diet gurus of Dr Lorraine Day and the Reverend George Malkmus who espouse to share the same beliefs and have turned their version of these theories into successful businesses. Burroughss theory was that by eating more than a vegan diet man was deliberately poisoning his body with toxins, and the diet which God intended man to eat comprises just raw fruit, vegetables and nuts. He wrote that the habit of an improper diet, inadequate exercise, negative mental attitudes, and lack of spiritual attunement combine to produce toxic condition. Thus by detoxifying the body for between 10 and 40 days, and then only following a raw vegan diet, all disease will be eradicated. As fans of the Master Cleanse modern diets will know the 10 day fasting period involves drinking a large amount of what Burroughs referred to as his lemonade. This is a concoction made from water, maple syrup, cayenne pepper and lemon juice. However Burroughs advocated following the cleanse for a minimum of 10 days and up to 40, for 3 or 4 times a year. As well as the lemonade, drinking salt water in the mornings was prescribed as well as laxative tea at bedtime. He fails to point out you should set up the bed in the bathroom for 40 days. When Burroughs goes on to say that drinking salt water can do no harm, and that his lemonade provides all the vitamins and minerals the body needs, it is amazing that anyone could ever put any credence in his theories. He was strongly against the use of vitamin supplements as God did not invent synthetic supplements, and maintained that all the necessary vitamins one needs for 40 days are in the fasting drink. He also shared the modern belief of many diet gurus that the follower must be following his cleanse wrongly if it wasnt working. As the hideous results of drinking nothing but his drink supplemented with laxatives, the salt water being a strong one, Burroughs explained that if your system feels upset it is because you are not having sufficient elimation. Luckily for his followers he did not believe in enemas but only laxatives. Modern day followers of the Master Cleanse most likely use it as detox as they believe the health benefits, and as a rapid weight loss diet. They may not realize that when they finish the diet, if they would only live by the raw food diet and totally eliminate all refined and devitalised foods totally, then they will never be bothered by disease again. Its quite frightening to think how many modern dieters have fallen for these crack pot theories and thus put their long term health at risk by following the advice of a man who was tried for manslaughter by killing one of his patients who followed this diet.

Menard Page Dear Reader, I am a New England author living in central Massachusetts with my eight children who are now young adults and have lives of their own. I have one son who has special needs (Down’s syndrome), and I have chosen to leave my career in the computer industry to take care of him at home full-time. I am a widower, having lost my wife to cancer back in 1997. My wife, Elsie, was a proofreader with a large publishing firm, and I could sure use her skills these days! But I do the best I can. I have a background in many areas. I’ve been a very successful real-estate entrepreneur, a teacher, a soldier, a high-level computer systems engineer (MCSE), and most importantly, a dad. My life has afforded me the opportunities to pursue virtually all of my interests, so I have now decided that it seemed appropriate to share some of those experiences with you, my readers. In the very early 1990s, I experienced a serious problem with weight control. I was always heavily into regular exercise, but it wasn’t preventing the sudden gain. My weight had increased to almost 100 pounds above my ideal level and was climbing rapidly. It was at this point that I tried and failed using virtually every diet plan that seemed reasonable. This was when I chose to begin my own research, as any engineer would, and discovered the plan which I shared in my book: Learning How To Eat (Again). As a result of this new plan, I lost over 85 pounds in well under a year, and I have had no problem maintaining my weight ever since. My second book, The Test Slayer’s Handbook, was written by popular demand. Many of my friends and business associates wanted me to share my secrets to passing so many high-level certifications so easily. This book was so much fun, it practically wrote itself. I hope you enjoy it. So thank you for taking the time to check out my Amazon page, and I hope you enjoy my books! Brian V. Menard’s Links
