Robert you crack me up. Why aren't you cleansing with us?? Yes folks, Mr. Muscular himself came to the rescue of this fair maiden the other day and helped her move!! He's my new hero...
Thank you again Robert. When I'm done cleansing let's toast with some Vega on the rocks! (Is it raw? I'm going back to raw after this!) If it ain't raw, the cucumber-celery-parsley-kale juice is on me!! And I'll match you wheatgrass shot for shot...

I'll make sure Isaac gives you back your memory card as soon as I clear out the 479 photos of him clogging my hard drive! He sure likes to mug for the camera. ;)

Now where're those Vegan ball caps and t-shirts for me and Anne?? I'm XS, thanks. :)

I don't want to get off topic of Isaac's cleanse report, just wanted to say hi since it was only your 2nd post ever! Welcome to the 3-post club!

I chatted with Bo today and I may even swing by tomorrow to drop off some shirts.

Thanks again for support Isaac during this cleanse and it's cool you're both doing it together.

I'm not doing a cleanse now for a number of reasons.

1. I'm getting over a cold so I missed a lot of the gym and my jobs rely on me being in good shape, so I have to get back to lifting ASAP (which I'm doing).

2. I'm heading to L.A. in the near future and want to keep eating/bulking before I go there.

3. Currently I enjoy the practice of eating and consuming food. Maybe in the future it won't seem so satisfying but right now, I'm fairly comfortable consuming food.

4. I am interested in the doing a Master Cleanse in the future. I mean C'mon 10+ years of pounds and pounds of processed soy products every week, 5+ Clif bars a day for years, and everything else that was part of years of bulking as a bodybuilder. Trust me, I want to do some cleansing! Just not now.

Have fun, see you all soon. I sure do like hanging out with all of you awful well.

Congrads on the spring cleaning you guys!
Definitely lots of cleansing fever in the air..


Which is good! Cleanses & fasts should take place with the change
of seasons!

Lately my body has been saying all systems go for a cleanse,
so I think I'll be joining you guys on Sunday/Monday, if you don't mind?
I'll definitely need some assistance, since I haven't tried the Master Cleanse before...

Good morning! I feel great today, I woke up early which is very unusual for me...I usually have an internal alarm clock that pops me up at 8AM and it went off at 7:20AM.

I had my first glass of delicious Smooth Move tea last night, and I have not noticed any effect of that yet; I expect it is coming this morning...

My throat still feels a little off, I am going to try adding a little more water to my diet today, washing down the lemonade with a few swigs each time, and see if that helps.

I am noticed a film on my tongue this morning. I guess that is the detox.

Andesuma, it would be great for you to join us, why wait until Sunday?

Lilikoi, you can clear out 477 of those photos, I just need my two perfect shots...I want to visit the original Blossoming Lotus :wink:

Robert, when you and Dave do it together we have to get the camera's rolling. I have been doing little check-ins on my camera, but you too would be a lot more entertaining!

You're right, happened to me as well.

Nearing lunch time on day 2, feeling good, but two servings of the Smooth Move tea down and no action. I have plenty of energy, not bouncing off the walls, but have been running around the office all day and went on a little walk outside while the sun was out.

I am going to put a little extra cayenne in my "lunch" to maybe get a little extra stirring action.

Feeling less sensitive to everything, or maybe getting used to the level of sensitivity. Just walked through an incredibly strong Mexican food smell, but it did not really smell good, smelled like grease.

Although the euphoric recall I am having now sounds good...ugh!

38 hours in, and over 24 hours since my last trip to the mens room stall.

I am taking a second dose of the tea for the day to see if that has any effect, so far I do not notice anything when I drink the tea.

Tomorrow morning I am starting in on the salt water flush part, so I will let you know how that goes.

Drinking water right after my lemonade seems to be helping with the throat, the tea is kind of nice too. Just a mild irritated feeling now. I noticed it was a little aggravated when I added 3 times as much cayenne, so maybe that has something to do with the way it feels.

I feel alert, alive and overall great!

Second cup of tea may have been a bad idea, my fasting buddy says you are not supposed to have more than 2 in 24 hours...and I also feel hungry after drinking that second 2/3 of a cup for about the first time. Going to slam some extra lemonade I guess. I guess looking it up or asking first would have been a good idea, but not always my style unfortunately.

I am sure this will subside quickly, it is a bit uncomfortable, but not terribly bad.

Stomach still a little off, but I made a visit to the bathroom stall and the hunger feeling has subsided (1/2 quart of lemonade with plenty of cayenne).

Time to hit the gym for a martial arts class (Budokan) then drop by the co-op for some non-ionized sea salt for the morning! I am going to take a full quart of thick lemonade for the trip.

Because I have a lot of produce I need to go thru first ; )
I don't want it to go bad, plus I know hardly anything about the master cleanse.. so I'll need some guidance.
I have been going thru general weird/annoying detox lately, making
me very antisocial, probably due to my over consumption of nuts
to counter detox.
so bad!

Anyhow, I know my body needs a fast. a break.


Is there a limit to how long you can go, or recommended amount of days?

7, 10, and 14 days are common numbers thrown around with the Master cleanse.

I can relate to the whole produce thing, I had a bunch of stuff I finished off before I planned to start whatever it is I'm going to do.

First off, I'm not picking on you Andesuma. I've heard this kind of thing from others as well, so anyone chime in. What's the theory behind this? Because, for lack of a better way to put it, this sounds "nuts". :?

The gym went great! It took a little bit more will power to keep up with class during the back and forth across the gym roundhouse kicks and such, and at one point when we were doing hops back and forth I almost blacked out, but other than that it was smooth.

I was hungry afterwards, but it was nothing a quart of the special drink couldn't 90% cure!

2 days in the bag and feeling great. I noticed the bags that are always under my eyes seem to be slightly diminished. Also my stomach is ridiculously flat, must be how empty it is...

So I spent the rest of the evening preparing my house for my mom visiting this weekend (she will be staying with me...kind of an interesting twist to go with this cleanse...) and now my back is fairly sore. I had a little pain after my workout...but a good night's rest should clear it right up.

I am having eating urges, not so much stomach pain or hunger, just like "Oh...I am going to make a...oh wait, no I'm not", plus I am noticing that these urges are associated with what I see in my kitchen, so likely not related to anything my body needs.

I just washed out a container that had a little live mango salsa left in it...oh man, that is about the first strong smell that has been appealing to me so far.
