this is CRAZY

By Christine Mangan, BlackDoctor.org

Known for her curvaceous figure, Beyonce has made recent headlines with her suddenly slimmed down look. She is nearly twenty pounds lighter after losing the weight for her role in the upcoming movie, ‘Dreamgirls,' a feat that only took her a matter of weeks to accomplish. It’s a piece of news that has left fans of the now svelte actress puzzling, ‘What’s the secret to Beyonce’s skinny success?’

With various reports claiming that she lost the weight by drinking water spiked with cayenne pepper, it looks as though Beyonce followed the Master Cleanse Diet to shed those extra pounds. Also known as the Lemonade Diet, this diet plan was created by Stanley Burroughs over 50 years ago. Designed to cleanse the body by ridding it of toxins, a happy side effect of this now popular diet includes losing weight, though this was not its original intention. And while some diets curb your sugar and fat intake, and others advise you to stay away from carbs, the Lemonade Diet requires abstaining from food altogether. That’s right. A complete fast is the key factor in this ten to forty day diet. In fact, the only thing followers are allowed to put in their bodies is water. And not just any old water. It has to be water mixed with lemon, maple syrup and cayenne pepper.

Stay on Mother Nature’s Good Side

Burroughs’ diet has picked up many devotees over the years, despite skepticism from the medical community. Instructed to drink six to twelve glasses of lemonade throughout the day, fans of the unique cleansing experience claim that it can also help to cure a number of ailments. This includes those classified as mucus diseases, such as allergies, asthma and the flu. Skin disorders and cholesterol are also wiped away by this not-so-typical fast. But it’s not as simple as it sounds. A whole host of problems can accompany this diet, including dizziness and, in severe cases, even vomiting. But the diet claims that this is not due to any lack of vitamins, as the lemonade provides everything that the body needs. It is simply a matter of all the poisons now circulating in the bloodstream. To counter feelings of sickness, the diet recommends drinking a laxative tea, which helps to stimulate bowel movements.

Blast Your Female Fat Zones

Denise Austin can help you take care of those problem areas where the weight just won't come off.

Once you’ve lost those pounds you’ve been longing to shed, don’t expect to go on a food binge the very next day. Easing back into whole food is a somewhat slow process. After the first and second day, dieters are restricted to several 8 oz glasses of orange juice. The third day includes more orange juice, as well as a bit of raw fruit for lunch and some raw fruit and vegetables for dinner. After the third day, you’re ready to eat normally again. Though, of course, the diet recommends continuing on with the lemonade drink for breakfast and limiting yourself to a fruit, vegetable, seed and berry diet in the future.

To make the infamous lemonade drink, simply follow these instructions:

2 Tablespoons lemon juice or lime juice
2 Tablespoons real maple syrup
1/10 Teaspoon cayenne pepper
8 oz water

Combine the first three ingredients in a jar, add water and shake.

I Love Maury!!! haha

Maury has got to be the best show in the world. Of course, all he ever does is paternity tests. But I just think it is so hilarious when you hear "Bob, you are NOT the father." Then you always know what's coming next. The guy gets up and dances or rolls around on the floor in happiness, yelling "I told you so, bitch!" or whore, or slut, or something around that word-frame. Never anything intelligent, of course! And the woman gets up, SCREAMS AT THE TOP OF HER LUNGS... begins crying hysterically and shoots down the hallway. So, she's in the back, cameras behind her, and she THROWS herself on the floor. Not falling gently on the floor, but like SLAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAM! I think it's great. 
Or the test results come back and "Joe, you ARE the father." Where the guy says "yeah, ya know, I'm gonna be a father, I'm gonna do what's right" ... YEAH, after 20 minutes of "THERE IS NO WAY THAT BABY IS MINE!! NO WAY! ANGIE IS A HO AND SLEPT WITH EVERY GUY IN TEXAS! ANY GUY COULD BE THAT BABY! ANGIE, WHEN THE TEST RESULTS SAY THAT BABY AINT MINE, YOU NEED TO LEAVE ME THE FUCK ALONE!" And his girlfriend is besides him yelling yeah the whole time. So, then, of course, he's gonna take care of the baby? Uh huh. Let him take care of that baby. Good luck with that. And the girl is either dancing her little "I told you so, nigggaaaaaa" dance or hugging him and telling him she forgives him. Haha.

This show is the highlight of my days.

Hey all. Everything's going good.. Kinda busy. I'll update more tomorrow but meanwhile, I just wanted to get this out in the open...

EAST STROUDSBURG — A forlorn figure sitting on the railroad tracks at sundown is what eyewitness Bob Weidner recalls.

"I almost stopped and said something to her," said Weidner, who saw the woman moments before she was hit by a Delaware-Lackawanna train near Wal-Mart.

"A man was walking away from her and her head was bowed. I heard the train coming. You could hear the train whistle blowing. The train rolled on by and then all of a sudden, it stopped and I thought 'Oh, my God,'" said Weidner, a resident of East Stroudsburg.

Police called it an apparent suicide attempt.

Her pink backpack was left along the tracks.

"The train wasn't going that fast. It didn't come to a screeching halt. It just kind of stopped," said Weidner, who was driving home from Wal-Mart when the accident happened.

A Suburban Ambulance crew spent about 15 minutes stabilizing the woman in the parking lot of Mr. Z's grocery store before she was flown by medical helicopter to the trauma center at Lehigh Valley Hospital.

A man who had been with the injured woman was crying and distraught as police interviewed him.

"I can't see her. I can't see her," he slurred, apparently under the influence of alcohol.

When asked if the woman had also been drinking, police would not comment.

The Scranton-bound train idled on the tracks as police investigated. Four diesel engines and two tank cars were disconnected from the rest of the train, which was still blocking the grade crossing on Forge Road as of 9 p.m.

The Delaware-Lackawanna Railroad moves freight several times a week through Monroe County to and from the Norfolk-Southern rail yard in Slateford just south of Delaware Water Gap.

"This is the usual time of night for the Delaware-Lackawanna to be coming through here," said Greg Christine, a board member of the newly-formed Pennsylvania Northeast Railroad Authority.

Christine said local crossings have been upgraded to be safer because of increased rail freight traffic.

"Unfortunately sometimes people walk down the middle of the railroad tracks," Christine said.

Christine, a former Monroe County commissioner, visited the scene of the accident shortly after it happened.

The Delaware-Lackawanna Railroad will investigate, officials said.
