Hi I just have a few questions regarding fasting/detoxing eg: master cleanse .
I am just on the over weigt side of things and get a lot of joint pain and inflammation. Related pain. I started doing detox/ lemon detox with the maple syrup and by the 2nd day my inflammation became really bad and I had terrible joint pain. I am wondering if that is a detox symptom?

Make sure you are getting enough water.

Total par for the course.
It may get worse, then go away...

I did the Master Cleanse with my husband. I lasted 5 days - he 7. I became so weak I couldn't do my job as a baggage handler and my husband had a work related accident causing several tens of thousands of $$$. He says he may not have been at his best preformance because of lack of nutrition. We followed the diet to a t and drank lots of water and the "lemonade". I also did a body comp test with a bio impedance machine. I lost a total of 7 pds in 5 days. Yeah?!? According to the body comps it was 9 pds of muscle and I gained 2 pounds of fat and I was not dehydrated...
There are much better ways of doing a colon cleanse and some that will help you lose fat not muscle...
I know there are die hard Master Cleanse folks and all I can say is that I am not one of them.

Lemon juice is a powerful cleanser to keep in mind. The first dya of fating, the enzymes have made their way to teh intenstines to start the detox process. With such an intense response the first day, you may want to rever to something less concentrated, like doing juice fasting with various juices. The juices of greens are excellent in helping alkalize and neturalize toxins.
Perhaps you may consider not fasting and do some raw eating before you go into a concentrated form of detox.
Always take a inventory of your health before you consider doing such a powerful cleanse.
