View Full Version : First Timer - questions re: preparation
March 3rd, 2006, 08:49 AM
I'd like to try the Master Cleanse. I haven't been eating very well for about the last 6 months...too much sugar in my diet. Anyway, I was just wondering if most people just jump on board and start when the time is right OR is there any preparation needed prior to starting.
For example, eating only fruits and vegetables or certain foods for a number of days prior to Day 1?
Any input would be appreciated.

Good Morning Beachgirl,
I am actually on day1 of the cleanse after 2 weeks of prep (mentally and physically). I actually worked to stop drinking coffee, eat less crap and more fruits and veggies and non meat products. Mentally I tried to get ready for the battle of cravings. I think I'm glad I did that. With other "diets" in the past I have miserably failed right away because I wasn't committed at all. I think I might be able to get through this one!

Thank you for your response, I wonder if most people go through that same initial mental and physical preparation? Â*
I'm leaving for Bahamas on March 23rd to visit a good friend so I don't really want to start any later than the 8th of March. Â*Perhaps between now and then I will prepare myself.

I too haven't started the MC but from researching other people's experiences they have expressed that by "prepping" themselves by eating healthier and lighter and drinking more water have made their transition to the MC much easier.
You are definitely right, many people prepare themselves mentally and physically for the MC. I know I am! This will be my first time cleansing and the past few weeks I have been watching what I eat, eating much healthier and lighter and drinking lots of water. I guess the more I talk about the MC and prepare myself for it the transition won't be too much of a shock for me.
Best of luck!
P.S. I also have a trip coming up...Dominican Republic!!!

When are you planning to start? Would you like to join me on the 8th of March?

I found another thread for people starting in March that you might find useful. There are a handful of people on there in various stages of the cleanse all starting around the beginning of March. Check it out: Anyone Starting March 1st ( I think that is the name of it)

Hi Beachgirl & Jaelystlund
I plan on starting MC on Tues March 28th. I have two big events planned the next two weekends and the week before I start I am going on a snowboarding trip. So I don't think all the lemon and limes will fit with my snowboard, lol!
But I am definitely preparing myself for the MC. I have a co-worker on Day 4 and it is amazing seeing the results, his ups and downs and all his advice. It definitely is well worth it and I really am so anxious to start. but in the meantime I am working on being as healthy as can be for when my day is up.
Definitely post your results because we all enjoy reading them.
Good luck to you guys!
