Personally, I would never do something like the Master Cleanse because it is a starvation diet.  If you want to “detox” or reset your body to not crave junk foods anymore, I think there is a better and gentler way to go about it.

I read a book called Crazy Sexy Diet by Kris Carr last year, and loved it.  I was looking to “cleanse” after the holidays (not necessarily trying to lose weight; just rid my body of the sugar build-up and sluggishness I was experiencing).  The book is well worth reading, but the basic principles for the 21-day cleanse are no sugar, no caffeine, no alcohol, no gluten (I was loose on this one because I don’t have a gluten intolerance & saw no need to avoid it completely), and emphasis on whole plant foods/elimination of processed foods.  There is also a spiritual (not necessarily religious) element, as well as emphasis on self-empowerment, exercise, meditation, etc., so I like that it’s a more holistic cleanse in the sense that you can cleanse both your body and mind.  The meditation recommendation was really good for me because I struggle with being chronically stressed out, tightly wound, anxious, etc.

I also really like a book called The Beauty Detox Solution, which is similar to CSD, but has various “levels” based on how you currently eat & what you are looking to achieve, so it might be more approachable/attainable for a wider variety of people.

I am not an expert, and of course this is a very personal subject that people will have varying opinions on.  I am just of the opinion that starvation diets/cleanses do more harm than good.  Slow and steady wins the race, IMO.

Try Bee Pollen.  (Link is to the store from a shop near me).  You would have to buy the expensive stuff, but I’m seeing so many results in person since a lot of people from work are taking it.

ETA: PM me with any questions.

Someone told me about a cleanse that includes, oil, some kind of salt / salt solution. Forgotten what the name of it is but it gets rid of all the stuff in your body that it accumulates.

I actually LOVE juicing… even before the moive Sick Fat and Nearly Dead… but instead of three times a day, I juice morning and lunch and i make a meal out of the stuff I already have, like the veggies and I cook a meat like salmon or chicken… I watch that movie though and he has a website called Jointhereboot.com, so maybe you can check that out and see if that is something for you… cause you wont be just straving yourself, but I must warn you, you will have crazy bad caffine headaches around day three and four but day five you’ll start feeling awesome

I’ve done the master cleanse, I do about once a year I’d say. I love it, yea, it’s tough the first few days, but then it gets much easier. This year I did the Clean program (minus all the stuff you have to buy, I just did the menu and made my own shakes and soups which you can find online for free) and I really really liked it. I also love juicing, if you have a juicer it’s really affordable and it makes you feel great at the end. If it’s your first time, I suggest the Clean program though, it includes some solid meals, but everything is designed to be anti inflamitory and cleansing and fresh and anti alergy.

I really like Bethenny Frankel’s SkinnyGirl Cleanse. It is just a packet of green lemonade that you mix with 8 oz of water which is pretty good. It kind of tastes like green tea lemonade.

I would recommend adding in vegetable juice to your meals..like for breakfast. Add in as many whole foods and avoid processed food also. 

I knew a few girls who all did the master cleanse together to lose weight and they all gained what they lost back, plus some. I wouldn’t recommend it.

Cleanses are typically not healthy, nor are they needed.

Your GI track is constantly in motion, and nothing “builds up” like you are lead to believe.  Your organs (spleen, liver, kidneys, skin, lungs) are always cleansing your body.

Most are starvation diets, that deprive your body of needed nutrients, and do nothing to make you healthier.

I’m about to start the Advocare herbal cleanse tomorrow.  It does not involve starving or only drinking…so hopefully it will be helpful without being harsh!  I’ll let you know in ten days! 🙂
