Has anyone done the Master Cleanse?

I want to do the master cleanse but I can’t seem to get past the first couple of days. Does anyone have any tips? and how to fight food cravings? and does it actually work for loosing weight quickly? and does it give you energy?

    I’m doing the cleanse right now to give me a fresh slate to start living (and eating) more healthily. Right now I am on Day 9 tomorrow is my last day and then I start my ease out.

    1) I will state this in every Master Cleanse question I answer: It is a CLEANSE not a diet.

    Now onto your questions:

    -DO the ease in. It will help prepare you for eating less. [And more importantly do the ease out! You need to prep your stomach to take in more food]
    -Just resist temptation. Cheating will not aid you at all during this process. Whenever you get a craving, drink some of your lemonade.
    -Yes you will lose about 1-2 pounds a day (at least) but it’s mostly water weight and you will gain at least half of it back after you end the cleanse.
    -Yes, you will still have energy for your daily activities. I don’t think it has given me any more energy than usual.

    Buy the book, it’s only $6. 🙂

    Even though most people are going on the Master Cleanse to lose weight quickly, there’s many ther health benefits to be gained by doing the Master Cleanse. Flushing out your system is what the Master Cleanse is really designed to do. Even back 60 years ago when the Master Cleanse was first invented people had health problems as a result of waste building up inside of them. Today with processed foods, pollution, and all around poor diets our bodies desperately need to be flushed out every once in a while.

    So here are my tips…

    1. Do it with someone else. This is very important if you have a family/spouse at home. Imagine having to drink your lemon detox drink whilst watching the family eat a pizza or something you really love (pizza is my fav). If you do this with your spouse you will find that you can motivate each other and celebrate your wins as you get through each day.

    2. If your family are not doing the master Cleanse with you, then make sure you plan for the fact that they will be eating solids, and you will be drinking your lemonade. At the very least, ensure that your family members are supporting you through your detox diet.

    3. Take it day by day. The biggest mistake I see so many people make is focusing on how bad it is going to be to go without for the next 10 days. Just focus on it day by day, celebrate your wins of getting through the day, I find the first 3 days the hardest, then it gets easier until around day 8 (I think this is because I know I only have a couple of days to go)

    4. Make sure you don’t plan to do your Master Cleanse around a holiday period. If you know a friend has a wedding or you have a work party or something coming up, then plan your time around this. I find that when I am busy (at work etc.) that this is the easiest environment for me to stay focused.

    5. Keep busy on your days off. The busier you are, the less likely you are going to think about the fact you are going without.

    6. Have Fun. Make sure you have fun, create a group of friends to do the master Cleanse with. The bigger your support group the more likely you are going to succeed. The Master Cleanse is an intense 10 days, and you may not make it through all 10 days to start with, and that’s okay! You can always do it again at another time.

    7. Get a guide on helping you complete the full 10 days. I find that having something to read with tips and hints makes it a lot easier to complete. A guide will also protect your health and ensure you are doing the Master Cleanse properly.

    Finally, Remember it is only 10 days! If you put it into perspective, 10 days is not a long time. It’s just over a week after all.
