master cleanse

has anyone ever gone through with it?

i have a few times, and it always makes me feel like a million bucks!
i usually try to do one before i start dieting-- 
seems to make the transitioning to a new lifestyle easier.

the master cleanse itself is NOT a diet.
it is a detox.
you will gain back about half of the weight you lose...
once again, DO NOT do this cleanse if you just want to lose weight.

but you will FEEL great afterwards, your SKIN will improve, 

and you will have a much easier time when you begin your ACTUAL diet. 

but why, you ask... why are you doing it? you don't even eat meat...


i have a multitude of physical ailments that effect my every day way of living.

i gained over 100 lbs when i was pregnant. HOLY COW, for real. 
my acne is out of control since the weight gain.

the weight gain is putting stress on my legs, which is horrible for my fibro.
no, i don't meat, but i am not exactly taking care of myself, either.

it is time to change that and jump start my lazy ass back into a healthier life.

for the next week (or two if i decide to do more than a week)
i will log my experiences with the cleanse. 

be prepared though, the descriptions of what i go through could be pretty graphic! 

now, the good stuff...
the recipe i am using for this particular cleanse is:

  • 2 tbsp freshly squeezed organic lemon juice 
  • 2 tbsp organic 100% maple syrup 
  • cayenne pepper to taste (yum) 
  • 1c filtered water


  • at night, drink a cup of senna tea.
  • in the morning, you can do a salt water flush. 
    i will be drinking more senna tea, however.

there are many different variations of the original cleanse, 
so feel free to google away for more information. 

see you guys tomorrow morning!


  1. Nothing wrong with clean stindeenz

  2. Ahhh good luck!!! I didn't last 3 days on the master cleanse but I swore I felt effects after only a day!!

  3. "you will gain back about half of the weight you lose..." Im not sure what that means...
