What Is the Melon Diet?
The melon diet is attributed to Yogi Bhajan. Several versions of the diet are out theret; but, this one, titled the "Sweet Infinity Melon Cleanse," is given and done each year by the RA MA Institute for Applied Yogic Science and Technology, which is run by Jagat.
The melon cleanse is a five-day fast. You're allowed to eat only papaya, watermelon and cantaloupe on the diet. The diet is designed like a palindrome and claims to detoxify and heal your organs. You are allowed to sprinkle salt and pepper on the fruit. Here's what you're supposed to eat on each day:
Day 1: Only ripe cantaloupe.
Day 2: Only ripe watermelon.
Day 3: Papaya until noon, followed by water with honey until 2 p.m., then only water until 3:30 p.m., water with honey once again until 5 p.m. and then papaya until you go to bed.
Day 4: Only ripe watermelon.
Day 5: Only ripe cantaloupe.
The diet also has a number of other rules and dos and don'ts that practitioners need to follow. For instance, it has a pre-cleanse period of three to seven days, where you're supposed to eat light and avoid meat, dairy, fast food, caffeine and sugary foods and drinks.
The diet also recommends massaging your body with almond oil during the cleanse, in addition to doing light yoga, stretches and breathing excercises such as the onese we learnded togeter in our online content.
