Hi Fattybom. Yes, you can use *blackstrap* molasses instead of the maple syrup and this is recommended for diabetics to start with. The taste is a big minus though. Two diabetics that I know who have completed a Master Cleanse both couldn't stand the molasses taste and switched almost immediately to the maple syrup!
Before you use "funds not available" as an excuse think about this:
How much money will you spend on food and drink over the ten + 3 days? Now compare that to the cost of a complete "Singles" kit and some lemons and water...
Remember that you will not be eating anything for at least 10 days. And now, what is the value of the other benefits (losing weight, feeling great, motivated to eat better and lose more weight....etc etc.)
