The Master Cleanse! in Online Training Journals & Blogs Posted February 24, 2007 This sounds very interesting and I am highly considering doing this. my room mate already agreed to doing it with me for at least 5 days, maybe not the whole ten. Can someone please maybe take a second to explain to me what nutrients the body NEEDS each day, and how its possible to get them with this mix. I have been doing a lot of research on this cleanse for the last hour and i havent read about anyone dying, haha, which is good, but i just cant comprehend how your body doesnt get sick or break down. maybe the body needs less than i actually thought. If i have never done ANY sort of cleanse before, is there maybe a more mild one i should start with?
