View Full Version : Starting a fast?
10-13-2007, 05:16 PM
Hello all! I'm going to be starting my second Master Cleanse out of a 3 parter on Monday, it will be for 14 days. I broke the fast up in parts because I didn't want to tax my metabolism too much since I'm already hypothyroid. Anywho, any other fasters gonna start on Monday or are in the process? Let's support each other! :D

I'm starting today also, but I'm doing a green smoothie and juice fast. Not quite the same as a MC, but I'm here for you nevertheless.

Yeah, the type of fast doesn't matter. We're all doing them for similar reasons more or less! :) How long are you guys going for? I wanted to do it for a total of 42 days so I broke it up in three stages. 1st was one week, 2nd two weeks, 3rd three weeks. I like the MC but my biggest reason for choosing this over a juice fast is the convenience! I have loads of energy, much cheaper and less time consuming for my busy days. I'm really looking forward to juice fasting or feasting next year after the holidays though!
For the herbs I'm alternating between a laxative tea and a type of green powder which are both senna and anise based. Yeah fasting can be tough but as a food editor, wow! I'd be daydreaming and drooling all day long! mmm. hehe But we can do this! Especially with support and positive energy. ;)

I almost quit my smoothie fast already! Wow! I decided not to, and now I'm drinking a delicious green smoothie, that's actually a dark red color. I even put it in a wine glass to enjoy it more.
I think my near-downfall earlier today was because of a smoothie I made this morning, and didn't get to drink until later on. It was a hemp milk, banana, date smoothie, and drinking it warm reminded me of gross milk. Anyway, it made my stomach churn, and I had to chuck half of it out. This one is going down much more nicely.
I hope your MC is going well.
I hadn't thought about how long to fast. I was just going to take it one day at a time, but I suppose having a goal length would be good. I'm going to get through today, give it a think, and I'll get back to you.
