“Master Cleanse” Diet
One of Marilyn Monroe’s contemporaries, Renée Taylor, told the New York Post how she learned about the “Master Cleanse” diet from the Some Like it Hot star. After meeting Monroe back in the ’50s, Taylor swore by a concoction of cayenne pepper, lemon juice, and maple syrup.
While this strange mix has developed a small fan base over the years, there is no concrete evidence that suggests that it prevents weight gain. Generally, people aren’t recommended to adopt this diet.
