    6. The Complete Master Cleanse

    Classics are classics for a reason. Also known as the “lemonade diet,” the “Master Cleanse” calls for substituting food with a drink mixture comprised of tea, lemon juice, maple syrup and cayenne pepper. Originally developed more than 30 years ago, it’s the program that started the cleansing craze and it remains a go-to detox bible. It also recently had a starring role on Netflix’s Orange is the New Black, although the protagonist, Piper, gave up halfway through her cleanse attempt. Look where that got her: prison.
