thank you for post.
thank you for post.
Thanks Dana for massage idea. I've always read the blog too while cleansing and found that it helps. It is cool that you guys have shared "detox mission" before. Day 1 went well and about to drink some tea...which I look forward to. I actually like the taste change. Anyone else enjoy the tea?
End of day 4 for me. So far so good on day 4! Yay
I find that I see the biggest drop in weight right after a really bad detox day. Anyone else notice this?
I enjoy the tea the first half of the cleanse typically.. Then my taste buds go wonky from the yellow film and the tea ends up tasting drab and slimy for some reason. Lol
I am substituting raw dark agave for my syrup, ( which is one of the very few substitutions that can be made as stated wayyy back by several senior cleanser and maybe a moderater)
Have done this for several cleanses now because the maple makes me gag. So for me it's this or nothing
However, I also find I need more minerals with the agave.. So I add in some molasses which is super concentrated minerals. Dr bourros talks about molasses in the cleanse booklet that it is ok to do. For me this has worked. But... I really do try to listen to the aches and pains and decifer what is detox and what might be something else.
My first cleanse I vomited all day day 1
Second cleanse vomiting day 2 part of day.
Was very nervous on cleanse 3 day 3 lol... But yay no vomiting
So for some of us detox is way worse than for others. I have been a veggie for a very long time but it doesn't mean I was healthy!
Cheers & see y'all tomorrow!

well Lemon Friends...
Today is day 18 and It's going to be my last day. I have this trip and I was hoping it would be cancelled, so I could keep going in my own environment. I thought I could do this. Too much today. I wanted to do 40 days. Sad. I also promised myself I would come off the right way, but I can't take it. We leave in an hour to drive for 3 hours and stay in a hotel for 2 nights with 4 other hours of driving in there. I am going to have some oj and then broth in a little bit.
I guess I'm telling you all this so you can protect your MC by doing a lot of planning.
I stopped coasting and hit the wall. Very Sad.
This is thatoneguyonline from YouTube. I'm baaaaack haha.
I'm starting a new cleanse tomorrow and yes I will document it on YouTube.
Just a head ups that I'll be posting here again while doing this cleanse - talk about spring cleaning!
Day 41 of my master cleanse....went pretty smoothly....interesting psychological barrier the last couple days...had STRONG urges to end it before my 42 days...why 42 days? well I was going to do the typical 40 days but I thought since this is my 42nd year walking this planet...might as well go to day 42....now my only concern is exactly what sort of dietery regime should I follow? vegan is definitely not my style...I really seem to be leaning towards the raw food/healthy food coupled with organic beef/chicken camp...
quick bio info I'm 5'10" and at start of all of this I was 138 lbs...knees ached felt pretty crummy... I weighed in a couple days ago and I was 195...not too shabby...I know too I will gain 5-10 lbs just from my intestines re-inflating from food so that's no worry....
Today is day 5 of my spring cleanse.
Last Jan/Feb, my Winter Cleanse, I intended to go to day 30, but only made it to day 26.
I have waited 7 1/2 weeks and am starting again, again hoping to go 30 days.
For now, my short term goal is to go 8 more days to day 13, then re-assess from there. I know that long-term I would like to go longer, but I'm not sure if I have the right mid-set to motivate me for that long.
Best wishes to all here!

I'm on day 2. last night I came very close to quitting, my head was hurting so much. I think it was caffeine withdrawal since its a little bit better today. I'm really hoping today will be better. On the plus side, I'm already 3 pounds down!
Hey Everyone! I'm almost through my first day of the MC. I'm so happy to have started and am totally committed to the pink tongue! I'm going to mix it up with both lemons & limes...just because it may keep me from that boredom detox that I have read about.
My question: Is there any information about daily medicinal marijuana usage doing the cleanse...or have done in the past? Curious about results, reactions, etc. I read some things about prescribed medications but saw nothing on this topic.
Thanks and Good Health to All!
This is a great board, and I'm so impressed by the dedication of those who have done this so many times! Today is Day 9 for me. This is my second cleanse. I'm ready for it to be over. Tired of feeling cold and tired, but the fact that I have gotten rid of so many toxins is awesome. MC is my reset button. I want to add more vegetables to my diet and just eat less of the foods that I love. I'm not giving up those "bad" foods, though. I am glad I did this because the day before I started, I felt so heavy and bloated. It's good to be back to my normal. Thank you for all the information and motivation!
