Master Colon Cleanse Diet guide.

May 25, 2009 3:10pm CST
I began the master cleanse diet today. I have done months of research to make sure that it was appropriate for me. Today I woke up and drank my saltwater flush. It was not even near as bad as I have been reading. I did try it warm like a broth as had been recommended by several people. The Lemonade is kinda weird. The spiciness is a odd next to the citrus. I am not using very much syrup in my diet and have not had trouble stomaching the sour lemon juice. So far things are going well with the process, although nothing seems to be happening inside. I can say that on this first day I am not really very hungry. I think that the lemonade is doing it's job. I will try to maintain posting my progress. Just watch my discussions for day to day progress. I'm a little scared to see if the evening SWF ( salt water flush ) makes things move out a little faster.

very interesting. I'm going to watch your progress before I venture forth. I actually can't afford to lose much weight so for me it would be only for the health benefits. It'd be painful...I love food.

I love food a whole bunch. I eat everything, except cephalopods. There is something about eating something that I could potentially have a conversation with that bothers me. This cleanse is less painful than I thought. I eat food almost as a novelty. I just love consuming. It's weird though, I'm really not hungry at all. I'm getting ready to post day # 3 so keeps your eyes peeled.

I tried that spicy lemonade and only lasted one day. The Cayenne pepper was worse coming out than going in, if you catch my drift. I wish you the best of luck and better tolerance than I had. I haven't been able to find anything that really helps me to lose weight. I may have to break down and exercise. I am not looking forward to that at all.

I'm not really doing this to lose weight. The health benefits really go further for me. I also feel that I am at about my ideal weight right now. This is more to fight the crud in my body that comes with aging and help refurbish my digestive system. I can understand however your ill feelings on the spicy lemonade. I really like spicy and I'm not a hater of lemons but they aren't on the top charts for fruit in my world. The two together though is going to take some serious getting use to. I broke down a while ago and started exercising. It's tough to maintain at first but after a couple of weeks of steady routine, I really settled in to it. now it seems as easy to maintain as eating. Ironic thing for me to say right now though, eating haha I won't do that for a while.

Hi Berlong! You pretty much have it right. The diet I am on ( and by diet I just mean my food supply, this is not intended as an easy weight loss plan ) is to cleanse my colon and intestines of everything from unwanted parasites, bacteria and the past 30 years of fecal plaque buildup. The diet consists of drinking a salt water flush twice a day, morning and night. This is followed with a liquid diet typically consisting of a lemonade made with grade b maple syrup , cayenne , a couple of squeezed lemons and water. This is to give you vitamins and minerals as well as the minimum caloric intake. It is a low calorie diet ( less sugar to feed the microorganisms in your intestines )and it is important to do a great deal of research on how to prepare yourself and what to expect. Follow my discussions over the next 10-13 days as I plan to post detailed descriptions of what is happening to me so that others can have an idea of what they are getting into. So far today I feel o.k. this is tolerable. I really love eating though so we'll see. I feel pretty good right now. It's getting to be later afternoon and I've had 3 lemonades and I'm starting to feel a little hungry. It's not too bad though. I still have not had a serious increase in my bowel movements and what I had early today was still pretty solid. I'm not dizzy or lightheaded yet, and that is nice.

I've read and heart about this Colon Cleanse. Aren't you supposed to follow the required tablespoons for this? This is in reference to the syrup. So do you consume 12 glasses of it? I heard that you're supposed to take it for 14 days.

The maple syrup is only there to make things more palatable.Maple syrup is however not a critical component to the biological effects of the system, and some people use none at all. I have read several books now on this cleansing system and have found multiple variations. The recommended amount seems to be around 75 ounces of the finished lemonade drink and water the rest of the time. I'm drinking just about that. I have read that a person can drink more of the lemonade or less if they really want. The most important thing is that you are drinking at least most of it (this is the only place you are getting calories and vitamins). The next most important item is the salt water flush ( i can't stress enough "non-iodized salt"). The whole key to this cleansing system is to either kill or starve the bacteria and parasites that naturally build up in ones body while also flushing years of fecal plaque buildup. After the diet is over it is typically recommended to reseed your system with probiotics such as yogurt and cottage cheese and kombucha. You must also start out slow on eating. I plan to have a couple of ounces or yogurt and some orange juice the first couple of days and then work in veggies and fruit over a couple of more days. THe recommended minimum number of days is 10, some people go 40+.

Thanks so much for that info. I plan to try it, but I'm not sure if I can stand the taste. I'll also plan my mom to try it. Oh by the way, if some people take it for 40+ days -- wow! They're sure to lose a lot of weight.

I personally don't think a person should starve themselves just to lose weight. I am really doing this just for the overall health benefits of detoxifying my body. However if you have a mom that works like a guinea pig then experiment away and don't forget to post your results lol. Good luck to your mom.
