Robin Quivers on the Lemonade Diet

by Dr Marc on May 18, 2007

Robin Quivers, the hilarious wing-girl to shock jock Howard Stern, made headlines back in 2004 with her 70 lb weight loss. She denied having “that operation” aka gastric bypass surgery, claiming “that’s the most insulting thing.” Her secret?

She credited the Lemonade diet, also known as the Master Cleanser and popularized most recently by Beyonce, for getting down to a trim 145 pounds. The Lemonade diet is based on a concoction of lemon juice, maple syrup, cayenne pepper and distilled or purified water. She fasted for 21 consecutive days on 3 separate occasions. “It’s a completely different way to be” she says and Howard Stern producer Gary Dell’Abate gushes “I’ve been with her 20 years, and I’ve never seen her this happy and confident.”

Asked about her motivation for starting the diet, she told People magazine that she was “trying to regain my health, and that’s what I did.” At her heaviest weight of 218 lbs, her low point was at her friend’s wedding when she attempted to make an early exit and was encouraged to dance by then Rebecca Romijn-Stamos. “I thought I was going to burst into tears. I’d never felt so horrible about my physical condition in my entire life.” A month later, after magician David Blaine raved about the merits of the Master Cleanser, she decided to give it a try.

As with other fasting-type diets that encourage yo-yo dieting and slow down the body’s metabolism, dieters may gain the weight back and then some. The Lemonade diet is a short-sighted quick fix, that is potentially dangerous to your health and a total metabolic disaster for anyone trying to lose weight.

I don't think it's fair to say she's gained ALL the weight back. I saw her on the Joan Rivers roast last night, and thought she looked very good. I'm not sure when it was taped, but it can't have been that awful long ago.

I would not be considered overweight, but I would like to lose a few pounds. I started the Master Cleanse yesterday to detox for 10 days. By this evening I felt like I had the worst flu/hangover I've ever had in my life. It was awful. I had some raw carrots and brown rice, and then an orange. Finally I stabilized. What an awful idea! I think I'll stick to eating raw foods and whole grains which make me feel full of life as opposed to being on death's door. Yuck!
