Jake Trades Beers, Junk Food for “Master Cleanse” Drink

New daddy Jake Owen says it's time to put down the beers and junk food for a while.

So he traded them for what's known as the “Master Cleanse”—a week of ingesting nothing but a liquid concoction of purified water, lemon, maple syrup and cayenne pepper. Why?

“I need some clarity in my life right now, and I need some focus,” Jake told reporters recently. "I've had my vices. And when I say . . . I'm not an alcoholic or anything, but I like drinking beers and I like having fun with my friends. You know, when you want to take a load off of all the stuff that I mentioned that kind of sometimes weighs on me, the easiest thing to do, like, I would reach and have a few beers at night, or I would grab some junk food, or did some other things that I won't say that I thought really took my mind off things," he added.

"After having a child and being married and trying to balance all this, I realized that all I was doing was adding more toxic stuff into myself," he continued. "This is the only way to really take your body and push a reset button, because you clear yourself completely of any bad stuff that's in it."
