Nothing is going to be w/o effort. Google Master Cleanse. It is a cleanse where you drink fresh made lemonade every day. Not too many ingredients to buy. The website might even been I do this twice a year. Its difficult but very rewarding.

Wow, I just found a journal that someone kept while doing the Lemonade cleansing diet! Not sure I'm up to 14 days of it at this point but thanks for the information. I think I'll see if I can find the book ("The Master Cleanse" by Stanley Burroughs) at my local used book store. I'll read it before deciding what to do.

This may be a version of the "Vitamin C Flush" where you take very elevated levels of Vitamin C in a short period of time. Supposed to detox you. This is a good evening activity if you are alone. I have tried it, you do get flushed out.

cleansing diet

OK, what are we really talking about here? I read packages on certain teas & diets, see this term and think am I going to have diarrhea for a week if I do this cleansing diet thing? And is there a cleaning diet that does not involve long periods of time in the bathroom? And how do you feel after? Does it just get rid of the bloat?

Some cold hard, stinky experience info would be appreciated.

Take a look at this journal that I found. This woman did the "Master Cleanse" for 14 days and she documents every little step along the way. It is just enough detail without being totally gross;

Try to get past (ignore) all her talk about lipsuction and other surgery related options for weight loss, unless that kind of stuff is of interest to you. It isn't for me. Anyway, I thought it was a very good depiction of what the cleanse is all about. Not sure I'm up to it, I'm still researching other methods.

what exactly are you trying to "cleanse" out?

I do the master cleanse twice a year. It is challenging but the benefits include: dramatic weight loss, flushing out chemiclas from food and medications, great skin, great focus and energy, more free time as your meal is already planned and ready, and it gets rid of allegies and old injuries in many people. The cleanse is a chance for your body to rest from constantly digesting food, and allows it work on things like cleaning out your system and healing old wounds. I would recommend 10 days, 14 is even better- but I can't last that long. Make sure you are drinking 6 servings or more of the lemonade a day and take lots of water as well. Initially you will notice that your tongue is coated- these are impurities surfacing and the tongue will be a healthy pink towards the end. Some (usually smokers or people who eat unhealthy foods) will get flu like symptoms in the beginning- this is also a result of toxins leaving the body. If you hang in there, it will go away as your body heals itself. People have been known to beat major illnesses on this cleanse, pass gall stones they didn't even know they had, etc. I've lost 8-12 lbs. each time I do the 10 day cleanse. Of course most of it is gained back when you resume normal eating. Many become turned off by meat after the clease and switch to eating vegetarian. Again, go to the master cleanse website and you will have a thorough explanation of the benefits and how to properly do the cleanse. The experience varies from person to person, so you can't judge from just hearing about one person's experience.

new group forming

I just formed a group for people who are interested in holistic, spiritual approach to weight loss/management and health. Inspired by "The Zen of Eating". I'd like to find others who are into seasonal cleansing and other natural health topics to share ideas and support each other,. maybe even do a cleanse together.

Join me at: Holistic, Spiritual, Balanced Approach to Lifestyle Change!

Please be someone interested in an active group, with posting everyday at least once!
