    Successfully Finished My First 10-day Detox!

    I am really proud of myself for completing the 10-Day Master Cleanser to a tee.  Did not deviate by eating or drinking anything outside of the spicy lemonade, water, Smooth Move, and the salt water flush!  Lost 10 pounds in 10 days.  Trying to keep it off...

    16 Day Master Cleanse

    Day 0 - Just bought all of my ingredients for a 16 day cleanse. Nothing like an $80 maple syrup and lemon commitment to make a college student commit to follow through! Its going to be a rough 16 days with final exams coming up but I am motivated to do this. No giving up...

    I'm only on Day 2 so far, but I was just curious whether all of the acid from the lemon juice affects the enamel on your teeth?

    10 Day Master Cleanse Before My Wedding! Day 3

    Day 3 was a pretty good day! I woke up feeling well rested and no hunger panic through out the day. I think the mental strengthening work is really working, to rid my self of dependency on food comfort. I didn't do the flush AGAIN, but I promised my self I'd do it every single...

    January 4, 2012 I am now on my second day on the master cleanse diet. I started yesterday but on the morning I ate breakfast because I do not have the ingredients yet. Then I started drinking the lemonade by noon, so I consumed 4 glasses of the lemonade in half the day and took...

    10 Day Master Cleanse Before My Wedding! Day 4

    Day 4 was tough! I woke up feeling pretty good. I FINALLY did the salt flush. The laxative tea always wakes me up around 5 in the morning with extreme stomach pains. But I went back to sleep just fine after that and woke up again feeling rested. I took the morning off work for...

    10 Day Master Cleanse Before My Wedding! Day 5

    111.2lb!! I was ecstatic! I think I'm losing about 0.5lb per day. A 10 day cleanse is really a 12 day cleanse, because the 11th day you drink orange juice and the 12th day you eat veggie soup. So if I'm losing 0,5lb per day, by the end of the 12 days, i'll be about 108lb...

    10 Day Master Cleanse Before My Wedding! Day 2

    Day 2 I woke up feeling great. Weight is still at 114lb, even heavier than the weekend before. I was 108lb before I started working out, so you can see why I'm frustrated. I didn't do the salt flush again, I was just too lazy. I had a few hunger pains through the day, most when I...
