View Full Version : Gaining after a cleanse?
02-23-2008, 09:35 AM
So I'm almost down to my goal weight and I'm still just in the middle of my 10 day cleanse. I know that I'll gain some again when I'm off my cleanse but was wondering how much I can expect to gain again.
What are other people's experiences?

I would not worry about the weight gain. When you Fast, your Body has no Bulk from Food, thus you don't have that weight. When you began to eat Normallly, you have the weight of the Food mixing with liquid inside your Body. The Gain in Miminal..........Have a RAW Day.

Thanks a lot! I am definitely hoping the gain will only be minimal. I know it won't be bad weight. Just wanted to know what to expect :o

I'm eating like a pregnant lady and have not gained an ounce of weight eating raw foods since breaking the master cleanse 3 weeks ago. :p I agree with the comments above and it really depends on your body chemistry. Trust your body knows what it's doing if you gain some back. As you get deeper into this you're better able to distinguish what is unnecessary fat weight, water weight, necessary fat stores and muscle weight. If you're building muscle, muscle weighs more than fat...muscles slim and tone your body giving you that toned, fit look. It also burns fat! I threw my bath scale in the trash 10 years ago and I don't stress over pounds anymore for this reason. I'm a mesomorph and gain muscle weight easily so the scale will give me a higher number, but I'm fit & healthy. I monitor my health and progress by how my clothes are fitting, checking my measurements & BMI (body mass index) periodically. There is much more to this...just skimming the surface. I wouldn't worry about a little weight gain.

I think I've gained about 6 lbs since breaking the fast about 2 weeks ago. Of course, I've slipped a couple times and wasn't always raw.
I am going back on MC today and in the throes of detox...
