Hi there, I don't know why you are so hungry, but according to burroughs' book under "How to make it" It says "use fresh lemons or limes only, never canned lemon or lime juice nor frozen lemonade or frozen juice." Also on page 20 of my copy (dated 1993) it says "Blend a part of the lemon skin and pulp with the lemonade in a blender for further cleansing and laxative effect. (Note: commercially procured lemons may have had their skins dyed with yellow coloring and may have been subjected to poisonous insect sprays - be sure to peel off the outer skin if you cannot get uncolored, organically grown lemons.) The properties in the lemon skin also act as a hemostatic to prevent excess bleeding and to prevent clotting internally should there be any such prevailing conditions. (Don't worry - normal conditions will continue during the mentstrual periods.)" So you were correct in adding the pulp, personally I strain as I can't stand the texture with the pulp and pith. I hope this help somewhat.
