Don't want to gain weight after Master Cleanse
I just started the Master Cleanse today. I decided to do the cleanse because my digestive system is out of whack (been eating junk all summer), I want to return to a healthier diet, and I want the spiritual focus (I'm a middle school teacher and school starts soon). The weight loss is a huge bonus. I'm about 30 pounds over weight and continue to struggle with my weight. I hear thatone gains all the weight lost on the cleanse because it is mostly water loss. How very sad :(
Has anyone successfully kept the weight off? If so, how?
I did a 12 day Master Cleanse at the beginning of July and I have lost even more weight since that time because I have had no food cravings, I have been drinking more and my digestive system is running very smoothly. I am frankly shocked at how great this cleanse worked for me. I will definitely do it again in a few months and this time I don't think I will be so fearful ortentative. The first three days were awful, but I hung in and I would have been able to continue the cleanse longer, had I not been going camping with my family.
One thing that I have done since the cleanse that has helped enormously is to continue drinking the lemon juice mix in the morning for breakfast. I eat only fruit at lunch and a really substantial dinner, but I make sure not to stuff myself. Then I drink lots and lots of herbal teas until bedtime - nettle, oatstraw, raspberry leaf, any Numi tea (out of this world!) and I alwayssweeten them with stevia so that it feels like desert.
Best of luck with your cleanse and do your best to hang in because it will be well worth it!
