Oh! “Dear” At least I have a nickname – which means you love me? Holler! She’s a nurse. That’s great. That really doesn’t mean much to me. Ergo, I support the initial poster doing he cleanse.
Ummmm, no. I’m sorry you’ve gone through kidney falure. I def have not and know not how it feels. However, I do know people who have and can I just say – it was not the Lemon Detox cleanse that put them there.
I never said I was justifying its use. I’m saying she’s doing this detox for 10 days to do what she has to do to get ready for the wedding. Women have done way worse I’m sure. And I also agree, you wanna “detox” or “cleanse” (because now I see the usage of quotation is necessary – as these words fly around) stop eating the junk food and shit like that. I’m all game for that. But I’m all game for a lemon detox too.
IN CONCLUSION, one of the other main point that have been stressed here is that everyone’s body is different’ And think it’s pretty lame for most people to quickly say some shit to a bride like DON’T DO IT YOU KIDNEYS WILL FAIL AND YOU’LL BE IN A COMA FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE OMGOMGOMGOMGOGMGOMGOMG! How do you know she’s going to have the same reaction as you, you, or you? You don’t, right?
Sorry ladies, I still stand firm. I don’t think she’s gonna die after a 10 day detox that may actually work for her.

Uhm the main reason I wouldn’t do it is the way it would affect your skin- dropping weight this quickly may eliminate some fat but you can also can muscle loss… Losing weight that quickly can cause your skin to stretch and make you look years older… Don’t bust up that collagen before the wedding! You want to look toned, not gaunt!

etox is great but I don’t think this is the way to do it either. I know that they say maple syrup has all the required nutrients our body needs but I still think this is not healthy.
When you starve yourself more the body holds on to fat because it’s not sure when you’re next meal will be, that’s what I found with myself, I’ll gain more weight.
It’s best to eat small healthy meals frequently and just keep it on a lifestyle basis.
Even the 3 day apple diet is actually very diffcult, I’ve never been able to complete it because it gives you head aches and you just can’t function.

“I don’t think she’s gonna die after a 10 day detox that may actually work for her.
None of these so-called “detoxes” (aka starvation diets) work. They don’t work for detoxing and they don’t work for losing weight.
The power of suggestion is a strong thing. Some people will see/feel changes that in reality are not there, because they want them to be there they convince themselves they exist.
Sure, you’ll feel great afterwards, because you’ve felt crappy for a week! I’ve notice when I get busy and eat more fast-food and junk, I don’t feel well. Not “sick”, just not “100%”. When I go back to eating a proper, balanced, nutritious diet, I feel better. That’s just common sense. Lack of proper nutrition will make you feel “blah”, when you feel better it isn’t some miracle of the detox diet, it’s your body getting back to where it was before the “cleanse”.

Wow, this thread is kind of out of control. I guess that there will also be people looking for the easy answer for weight loss so they’ll always be these crazy cleanses, diets & detoxes. ABC’s Good Morning America does a great segment every now and then on these things where they’ll feature 3 different doctors. Sometimes they even include “Hollistic” or Natural Remedies specialist. They did a segment on this particular detox in the past month or two and all the professionals declared it unhealthy. But for those people who believe in conspiracy theories and all that jazz then they’ll be no changing your minds on doing this detox. I wouldn’t say that all people who disagree are narrow minded, maybe they are just better educated on the subject. Also, to have some health care pro’s on the bees isn’t somehting I would find questionable, seems to be all walks of life here.

I also doubt that she’d die, but there are many ways to harm your body before you die. Also, no one mentioned kidney failure… you did.
Post # 68
Actually, future mentioned kidney failure. I’m just sayin’

I totally agree. There will be people that may be better educated on subjects more than others. I’m totally ok with that – until you try to shut me down for internet brownie points. Then I’m just going to throw it back at you.
You don’t have to agree with me and vice versa, but it is what it is. If I’ve done something and it has worked for me. Its worked for me. You can’t sit here and tell me I’m wrong and try to school me. it’s redundant.
Post # 70
Telling someone they are wrong and trying to teach them is not “redundant”.
I suggest you do some research before using words (and using unhealthy cleanses/crash diets).
I would think you’d WANT to be educated on what you are doing to your body, since, you know, you only get one.
Post # 71
Oh there you go again. Quick to tell ME to do some research because you don’t approve of my ways.
Again, thanks for the advice – however, I’m still standing firm in my belief and experiences 🙂
Sidebar: I’m trying to stay close to the topic of doing a cleanse as opposed to semnatics. We keep coming back to semantics on this thread. What’s going on, ladies?
Post # 72
Wow… never have I ever seen anyone get away with being as snarky on the bee as you are.
Post # 73
Well, maybe because it’s not me being snarky. I think I’m handling each response quite well to be honest. I don’t agree with you. it is what it is. 🙂

You not doing your own research for you own body is fine.
But telling someone else that this “cleanse” is totally fine and healthy WITHOUT doing research is not.
Putting your own life in danger, sure… why not? Putting someone else’s life in danger… not cool.
Post # 75
I don’t know… there were plenty from the CoS (you know that group that did that stuff) and they were pretty snarky. Makes one wonder, doesn’t it?
As for the cleanse? Sorry, I’d listen to a NURSE over someone who doesn’t know jack any day.
Post # 76
Well I wouldn’t say I didn’t know jack. But I know enough. Nurses are nurses, not doctors. I’d listen to a DOCTOR before a nurse. 🙂
