View Full Version : Starting the Master cleanse tomorrow nervous/excited
September 27th, 2006, 07:44 PM
I am excited to rid my body of all the toxins that have built up. I am hoping that the master cleanse will finally cure my chronic constipation. I also want to get over my caffeine addiction too.
I do have some questions….
Is exercise ok?
How do you handle it when people ask you why aren’t you eating?
Thanks so much

Hi Spott: Welcome Aboard! :D
1. Yes it's okay to exercise. It's encouraged actually
2. Well, you can say something like, "I'm not hungry" "I've already eaten" etc. This is good especially for co-workers. The Naysayers seem to come out of the woodwork.
I especially think it's funny when someone who's NEVER done the cleanse calls it "rubbish". :rolleyes:

Hey Spott, welcome!
I sometimes tell people that I'm fasting. It's Ramadan now so it's perfect timing. Some people get and/or at least respect your desire to fast. You don't have to say you're doing the MC or fasting from food in general, you can say it's just whatever they offered you in particular ("Sorry I'm fasting peanutbutter and jelly sandwiches")
Sometimes I just say I'm not hungry, like Res said, I will eat later or I ate before or I don't feel well/ have an upset stomach or something like that.
For close friends who may not get it, I say I'm on a strict diet and can't eat whatever it is is there, but will eat with them at a later date.
Check out the link below for General Help for Newbies. It has alot of tips that might help you prepare for your cleanse.
