Weight gain on day 9
Hello everyone, I am on my 9th day of the master cleanse, I am shooting for 21-40 days, depending on how I feel and when I think I have completed the detox.
So far my fast has been going well, but this morning when I weighed myself I weighed 1.2 pounds more than I did yesterday, and yesterday I had gained .2 pounds. Before that I was averaging 1-2 pounds a day, and I am not sure why I am gaining instead. I was wondering if this has happened to anyone else and if they could explain it?

Re: Weight gain on day 9
That actually happened to me while doing my 5th cleanse a few years ago. Most of the time, it is just your body adjusting itself and holding on to excess water. You can try to drink more water during the day, and it should go away within a day or so. Remember to drink your laxative tea at night, and always do the salt water flush the next morning. I had skipped the salt water one morning and the next day, the scale had gone up 1 pound.
