Is drinking bottle gourd juice in the morning helpful for weight loss and should I drink it on an empty stomach .... thanks ?

Not sure why you are: drinking gourd juice? Filtered water by itself is just fine to drink in the AM, as the more water you can drink or hydrate during weight loss, the better. Don't overdo though! Don't drink more than 1/2 weight in oz, and still need to adjust to what your doctor says is safe! If you work out, you need more.U don't want to error on the side of drinking too much water as U can dilute UR electrolytes. ...Read more

How safe is the master cleanse? This cleanse includes 10 days of drinking fresh lemonade sweetened with maple syrup and cayenne, and no food.

It's relative.: If you are a healthy 26 year old male without diabetes or any major chronic illness, the master cleanse is safe, but quite extreme.
