Cleansing by the numbers

June 09, 2012

There are easily dozens of cleanse diets. Some are juice fasts; others require only raw food or various combinations of liquid and solid food.

Whether the cleanse that is the best known of them, the Master Cleanse, suits a body or not, it definitely suits the budget, requiring mainly lemon juice, pepper sauce and maple syrup.

Others are more:

• BluePrint Cleanse: $65 a day

• Ritual Cleanse: $80 per day

The federal government says the average woman requires 2,000 calories a day and the average man 2,600. Just for comparison, the Master Cleanse is about 600 calories per day.
