I'm beginning Day 4 on my first Master Cleanse, and I'm very frustrated - help! Not because of the lack of eating or hunger, but in my progress (or lack thereof). I know this "diet" isn't about losing weight, but it's very disheartening to hear that when my friend (who is currently on Day 12) lost 8 pounds within 5 days and had about 3 BM's per day and really felt that the detox was happening. I, on the other hand, at the same weight and have one BW per day that isn't producing a whole lot. I have both Glickman's and Burroughs' books and am following them to a T -- I swear! I make a trip to Whole Foods every day for fresh organic lemons, I only drink herbal peppermint and senna leaf tea, I've upped my SWF seasalt from 2 tsp to 3tsp, and use twice as much cayenne as recommended. I know the books and message boards say to keep going for results, but I need some motivation because I feel like this just isn't working for me, and to be frank, I just don't "get it". Does anyone understand??
I got to the point last night where I was like, "Okay, I'm living a foodless, sober, sexless (boyfriend and I broke up - not relevant to the MC, I know) life. Why am I doing this again?" I feel like I'm not getting anywhere and have this sense of failure when I should be revelling in the fact that I've made it this far. I don't want to be the negative one here, but I feel like I was happier when I was going out to eat with friends, drinking wine, and having my morning coffee. Maybe this cleanse isn't for me. Again, does anyone understand??
