I'm thinking of starting again. I've done the cleanse before but only lasted 5 days. I let someone borrow the book from me a few weeks ago and never got it back! Where can I get another copy? Whole Foods was out. :(

<input ... ></input><input ... >I'm feeling a little bit let down because I'm not losing that much weight. I'm at the beginning of day 5. I did a 1 day water fast the day before starting MC and lost 3 lbs. Since starting MC though I've only lost about 2 lbs. I've been working out also so it's frustrating me! I know I shouldn't weigh myself everyday though. It's just disappointing because the first time I did the cleanse I was losing about a pound every day. But I'm still going to stick with it. I've been noticing some good changes. My skin is glowing and looks clearer. My food cravings are gone and I've had increased energy. I'm going to take the weekend off from the scale and check again on Monday.

I'm at the end of day 3 and my mouth hurts a lot. Is this normal? Any explanation for it? Any way to reduce to pain? Thanks!

Things are going great so far. Got all my lemonade in today, swf went well- I didn't throw up today lol, and I already drank my tea. I'm not really having any cravings or feeling hungry at all. The only bad thing is that my husband keeps complaining that I smell bad/funny lol. Oh well though!

End of day 3 [Jun. 9th, 2010|11:44 pm]

<input ... ></input><input ... >I meant to update at the end of each day but I got busy. 
Day 1 went well, but I fell asleep before I drank my last lemonade and my tea.
Day 2 was perfect. 
Today was day 3. Am a little disappointed that I don't seem to be losing weight as fast as I did the first time. I didn't write it down today either so I will have my updated number tomorrow. It's 11:30 though and I have only had 4 lemonades. What are your thoughts on drinking less than the recommended 6? I am going to try and squeeze 2 more in before I go to bed though. I had a hard time with the SWF today. I ended up throwing part of it up :( Not sure what the problem is. The taste doesn't bother me at all. I just get really nauseous. Maybe I'm drinking it too fast? I try to chug it down as fast as I can. 
I worked out on the treadmill the first two days. I'm giving myself an off day today though. I don't want to overdo it.
So far it's been easy though. I haven't felt very hungry and I'm not craving anything yet. My husband got Subway one day and I was fine with not getting anything.  Tonight he got Taco Bell and I was fine again. 
I'm pretty confident I will make it all 10 days. Maybe longer. Haven't decided yet.
Oh an a weird note, my husband keeps saying I smell funny. Is anyone else having that problem? lol

Anyone here? I'm on day one of the Master Cleanse. Originally I was going to do a water fast but my friend is doing the master cleanse so I told her I would do it with her. I've done it once before, quit after 7 days. I feel like I can definitely make it the whole 10 days this time. I feel much stronger mentally and physically than I did the first time. I may go longer than 10 days, I'm not sure yet. I'm not gonna lie and say I don't want weight loss, because of course I do...but I'm also hoping that this will help break emotional eating issues. Anyone else doing the cleanse right now??

Anyone on the cleanse right now?  I started today planning to go for 10 days.  I've done it once before but had trouble getting going again the past couple times I tried.

safety of laxative tea [Feb. 9th, 2010|07:19 am]
mastercleanse

mouthofblood
Hey all,

I'm planning on starting the cleanse on Friday.  I'm absolutely committed to following the plan as written, but I'm concerned about the safety of taking the laxative tea so many days in a row.  I do not want to become dependent on the laxative for bowel movements after the cleanse is finished.  Anyone have any experience or knowledge about laxative tea dependence to share?

edit: I also wanted to ask about the quality of concentration and thinking in general while on the cleanse.  I'm in my final semester of undergrad, which means I'm in all upper level bio classes this semester, and I want to do well in them!  I may have to put off the cleanse until after graduation if its going to affect my ability to focus and analyze.  So what are your experiences concerning that?

Thanks!

Day 6 [Feb. 3rd, 2010|10:35 pm]

Just a quick update & few words of encouragement!  These first 6 days have been a breeze.  I've read so many accounts of how hard & terrible everything is that I was mentally prepared for the worst.  In case that's all you've heard too, I wanted to say it's not always so bad!  I haven't had any detox symptoms & only 2 cravings so far.  The cravings have been intense and even made me question the cleanse for a few seconds, but I'm committed & know it will pass soon enough.

Oh and another great finding: the salt water flush does get easier!  I really had to choke it down & fight nausea the 1st time but the 2nd SWF was worlds apart.  I made it very warm & focused on getting it down again.  Of course it is still extremely unpleasant to drink a whole liter of sea salt water, but it can be done & gets easier, I promise!
