ALL ABOARD! Join us December 1 for a Master Cleanse (MC)
Wow! It has been enlightening to read about all of your experiences. I have been a little out of touch the last few weeks, busy with holiday parties, etc. and not doing so good diet-wise. Ever since my dehydrator broke on Thanksgiving (I sent it in to be repaired but don’t have it back yet), and it has been so cold here (well, cold for California!) I have been eating more cooked vegan food. I’ve needed the warmth!
I am planning on getting back on track eating raw foods in January and am thinking of starting it with a cleanse or a fast. I have never fasted before, so I think I might try a one week juice fast first to see how it goes. (I am hoping to get a juicer from Santa.) I am a little scared of the MC after reading some of your stories!! My first week of raw I detoxed really bad and I have never felt that sick in my life. So I am hesitant to do the MC and make myself sick like that again on purpose. I do want to cleanse myself though to get back on track… aaagh. decisions, decisions.
I have another question about the cleanse… What if you are on medication? Specifically, birth control. Obviously if I am flushing toxins out of my system, it seems that the pill would flush right out along with everything else… Does anyone have any input on this?
Renoir, I know what you mean about warmth. This cleanse has been easy for me except toward the end I started getting sooo cold. Yesterday, my husband said the house was like an inferno. I had the heat way up. I was wearing my jeans, a sweat shirt and a big, heavy robe over tha, but I still had to get under my electric blanket, and I also had a small electric heater going by the bed. I was still cold!!! And I live in Southern California. So the next time I do the cleanse will be a warmer time of year. Hunger? Easy, that was nothing. Cold, oh god I was freezing, but only toward the end. I don’t think you have to worry about birthcontrol being flushed out. I can’t imagine any cleanse or fast doing that.
Well, this is the final day for me. I’m on the second day of orange juice, and tomorrow I”ll start eating. Wow!! I have it all planned out. I know just what I’m going to eat. It’ll be really simple. Apples, pears, and then in the evening some cabbage slaw.
Day 7 – day 5 was alright exept for aces in my stomach,like it is very tight or something,hard to decribe. Day 6 (yesterday) was really bad,my stomach was worse and I had difficulty breatheing deep breaths and mentally I vas very negative.And because of how my stomach felt could´nt drink much of the lemonade,6 glasses and thats it.It was like my stomach was always full,like I just ate my dinner and to much of it! So drinking on top of that was not so nice.
To day has been better,my stomach is still bothering me but not as much and the breathing is better too.Drank 8 glasses to day.Mentally also better.
I hope I will get all the weight back that I have lost because I could´nt afford to lose any to begin with.After I whent raw last year I lost so much that I thought I could´nt possibly lose any more(and hoping I would´nt),but I was wrong!!
I was 53kg when I started the cleanse and now I am 50kg so 3kg gone!(I think 50kg is around 110 pounds) and I´m 172cm!! (5”8) so as you can imagine I´m walking skeleton these days:(
I´m not very hungry but if I get I just drink lemonade or pure water and eveything is fine.
I´m not having many BM´s these days like 1-3 a day and not very much at a time,so should I worry or??
I´m taking 3 teaspoons of salt in the SWF and it worked first but then not so much.
I have not been cold on the cleanse at all.
PRINCESSITA - how are you doing?
I know this group is done w/ their master cleanse, but I am starting mine! It will carry me into the New Year. I will be done on Friday, Jan. 4th! This was a better time for me—on vacation and all…—So we will see how it goes!
