I live in LA and people do the master cleanse: lemon water with cayenne pepper. I think it is unhealthy and dangerous.

If you want to "cleanse" just eat a lot of fiber rich foods. You’ll cleanse. Kashi go lean is a great cereal for that.

I agree, increase your fiber intake. Try making bran muffins and adding flax seed to your daily diet.

Cleansing isn’t healthy at all.  It makes you feel really faint and lethargic.  I agree with the earlier posts — eat some fiber — that’ll cleanse you!  Or, go to a store like GNC and purchae a colon cleanser.  These are overall healthy and you will be AMAZED and how it automatically trims your figure.

I did Isagenix for 9 days. Sure, I had all the nutrients I needed, but I can’t fast, so I thought it was dumb. Plus I’m not a big fan of fasting in general. Of COURSE you lose weight when you eat nothing all day =]. So it was 3 days of shakes, one day of fast, one day shakes, one day fast, 3 days shakes. I felt miserable and I missed actually eating, not just slurping down my meals. My gastrointerologist told me our bodies are well-oiled machines. Getting away from processed foods for, say, a whole week, is just as good as a "cleanse" diet anyways. Raw foods, natural foods, freshly steamed vegetables with no sauces, etc. I did feel pretty good by the end of the Isagenix program and I lost 7 pounds and kept it off (until after the wedding of course) but it wasn’t so great I’d do it again. I went to GNC and did the colon and whole body cleanser pills and that helped get things "Moving" along. If you poop regularly and don’t put crap in your body, you shouldn’t have to worry about getting that junk out b/c your body naturally absorbs all the goodies. But when you put a bunch of processed, chemical, bad foods in you, your body has to work so much harder to break it all down.

Nobody likes to starve…=]

Cleanses are incredibly unhealthy and dangerous.  Your body naturally cleanses itself.  if you want to eat clean, then cut out processed foods and complex carbs.  Don’t cut our solid foods entirely.  All you will do is dehydrate yourself and throw your body out of balance.

I have a cleanse waiting for me in the pantry but my fiance is sooo worried and will not let me do it. Lol. He is like "Ill be soo upset with you … it’s dangerous." So I haven’t done it yet. I did get it from the doctors office though, and it’s for 29 days. What you do is basically limit to only fresh and healthy, no gluten etc. foods. Like rice crereal with mashed banana and vegetables … I think sometimes you cut out meat and you cannot have bread or coffee- and your diet is very limited but you can eat.

I have one of those new-fangled "self-cleaning" bodies, with kidneys and a liver and everything!

A healthy cleansing diet is short-lived. Avoid dairy and meat, consume LOTS of fresh vegetables and fruits, and whole grains. Pineapple and papaya are especially good. Drink lots of water with lemon juice. Green tea is good too. No more than three days, then gradually add diary and meat back in. Keep whole grain and fresh veggie/fruit intake high for the rest of the week. Do NOT attempt if you have any health issues.

People in Nashville do the Master Cleanse, too. Not only do I think it’s unhealthy (they do it for 10 days!!), but it makes pooping your pants a real possibility. No kidding.
