To those of you who Master Cleansed, how long did you do it in order to see results?

My first fast I did was the master cleanse, I was a cooked vegan going into the fast and read and re-read the handbook daily. During the fast I got interested in raw foods, which I continued with afterwards.
I lost about 10 lbs for the full 10 days of cleansing by the book, no exceptions. I then did the 2 days of Orange juice and started eating food very carefully.
Because I continued on an all raw diet afterwards and broke my fast very carefully I was able to maintain my weight loss with the fast. Other fasts have not gone so well for me, and I have broken in terrible ways and it really messed up my digestive system.

What kind of results do you mean? My first experience was a 10 day MC as well, and the journey started with the first feeling of hunger and went from there! I felt different by day 3, if I remember correctly, very clear and kind of softer, if that makes sense (not physically, more of a shift of the psyche). My body began to feel really good right away, though I really really struggled with the hunger. I had heaps of energy and felt really good. I probably lost 10+ pounds all up, but not totally sure.
One more voice for breaking the fast CORRECTLY.

I didn't feel alot of difference, no major detox symptoms...although I do tend to detox emotions! Other than that it's always nice to let my digestive systom take a break. I've done it for 10 days, I've done it for 14 days & I've also done it for 21 days. I can't tell you how much weight I lost b/c I don't weigh but my clothes get bigger...if that helps :)

Thank you to all who replied. I am really interested in the benefits of clearer skin. My skin is not horrible, but it could be clearer and smoother. I read on another post about foods for acne that some people experienced profound changes in their skin as a result of the master cleanse. I am wondering how long people fasted and what happened as a result of the fast.

Since we tend to detox through our skin sometimes it gets worse before it gets better. I know my sister tends to break out when she does it but it doesn't last.

Ahhh, skin problems, no that is something I can relate to. Mine was clear and shiny and smooth while on the MC and I didn't have any detox effects on it, personally. It then stayed fine until now (a year later) and is still clear. The MC just seemed to reboot my system, and even though I have had periods of pretty lousy eating habits, it has stayed fine. Hormones factor into this to some degree as well but not sure exactly how, I am too busy loving not having to think about my skin for the first time in my adult life!
