View Full Version : anyone up for a Master Cleanse? would love a buddy
04-06-2010, 07:05 PM
I am on day 2 of mc and would love a buddy. This will be my 3rd cleanse with many failed attemps recently. I'm doing this for a major detox from wine and junk food (also to lose about 15 lbs)
I may add a bit of juice and coconut water, but I'll see as I go.
Also I would love to go for 14 days and see from there. The longest has been 10 days, but I never got to that euphoric feeling I always hear and read about. I want to really rid myself of all the toxins that I feel inside of me.
Anyway, hope someone joins me for the MC or any fast.

Hey Liz! I'm up for it, but I'll be starting a little later this week due to work schedule....did a meditation and came up with that I needed 27 days on the MC. So here we go!! Getting my supplies together - even made a pre-cleanse batch and gulped it down -which must mean my body is r-e-a-d-y!
SO - I'm going for Sunday as my official day....yay!

Great Revive!! I haven't been doing the swf this time, just tea. The swf is too much for me. way too much bathroom time and with a 2 and 3 yr old, it get's too annoying for me.
I hopr for another 14 days, but i'll see how it goes. I wonder how long it would take for my tongue to go pink. I still brush my teeth during the cleanse so I wonder if that impedes the cleanse.
I'll check back later!!
Down 5 lbs!!!! Not totally doing it for weight loss, but gotta love it!!

I haven't been doing the swf this time, just tea. The swf is too much for me.
haha - as i read this i am sitting here staring at the swf that i made this morning and just - couldn't - do it. :)
since that is the only thing holding me back from officially starting on sunday, i guess i have already started then!
i am going to a sleep clinic overnight on thu-fri and working fri-sat, so *if* i put the swf back in, it will have to be sunday.
are you doing cayenne powder or tincture?
good luck releasing all that non-essential weight!:D:D
04-07-2010, 10:54 AM
Hi \, I am doing the cayanne pepper. I may do the flush tomorrow because my daughter has no school, so no rushing out of the house!!
I think I may add the p&b shakes tomorrow to really get a good colon cleanse in. I did that last cleanse and really loved it (not the taste):(
So you have been doing the cleanse, but just not the swf? What day are you on?
Just got back from the gym, took abs and step class then sat in the steamroom for 15 min.
Feel great and it's almost 90degrees here!
Happy cleansing and will check back!
04-07-2010, 04:07 PM
WELL! I decided to try to eat a salad and my body would not have any of it! I guess I am in full cleanse swing whether I like it or not!
I was asking about the cayenne - is it in powder form or in liquid form? I only took the powdered before and tried the liquid tincture the past couple of days but it does not seem to be enough of a kick for me, so I will probably go back to the powder tomorrow.
p&b? Qu'est-ce que c'est?
If I had to guess - in context - psyllium and bentonite? Yum. Sounds delish!;)
Let's see...I guess I started my pre-cleanse on Monday - but I'll start counting the days on Sunday. So I'm at day -3 and counting. :D
04-07-2010, 05:53 PM
I use the powder. I had an okay day today, I actually nibbled a bit, but I won't dwell on it. :rolleyes:
Going to add the shakes tomorrow. It is the psyllium and bentonite. I read that when you add the shakes it is called the Ultimate Cleanse. It seemed to make the last cleanse easier for me.
Finishing up my last lemonade of the day. Then the tea and yeah off to bed.:D
I almost gave up today and then read your post and I'm back in. This is why I always need a fasting buddy!
04-08-2010, 11:16 AM
Definitely don't give up! You'll leave me hangin'! :)
The liquid cayenne is way more gentle. I think I may actually switch back to the powder next week.
Had an AWFUL night! Restless and feverish - and then all of a sudden in broke. It is great when you are getting rid of stuff the immune system kicks in and says "Oh no this is NOT happening in MY body." :D
It is only noon and I am almost through my entire batch! I actually can't even wait to add the swf in on Sunday to kick things up a notch.
So tell me about your p&b shake - how do you make it - with water? Any flavoring??:eek: You are a brave woman.
I'll check in later to see how you are doing!
04-08-2010, 03:15 PM
The p&b shakes is 1 tbs. liquid bentonite and 1 tsp. phyllium mixed with 8-10 oz water. Shake up really well and quickly gulp it down :eek:. Don't let it sit at all because it gels up fast and then it is super nasty!!!
I did it once a day and then daily increased to 3x's daily. It really cleans you out, but not as aggresivly as the swf.
Having a pretty good day. A bad headache when I went to bed, but woke up 2 lbs lighter!!!!
04-09-2010, 12:50 PM
I think I have some leftover colonix blend - may try that - at least it has some herbs to mask the p&b. Of course I can do the swf next week, too! Looking forward to it!
Keep up the good work!
04-10-2010, 07:58 AM
Good luck with your master cleanse! :) I am currently on day #21 and going strong! :D
04-10-2010, 08:33 AM
Wow Mindy Sue, 21 days!!! How are you feeling? I am on day 5 and feel pretty good, had a minor cave in, but not worrying about it.
Rawvive, how are you doing? Did you start the colonix. How is that? Does it work well? I was going to buy it once, but it was too expensive. Did p&b shake and going to up it up to 3x's today.
Check back later!!!
04-10-2010, 08:51 AM
I feel wonderful. I have plenty of energy, my workouts are just the same as they always are - I do 45 - 60 minutes of cardio and 1 hour of weights, 5x a week. I'm proud to say I haven't slipped up a bit! :D
I was going to start ending this cleanse on Tuesday which would be 23 days, but my daughter said to me yesterday "you have made it 20 days, why not go for 30". So I am considering it. :p
My dehydrator, Vita Mix and food processor miss me. ;)
04-10-2010, 11:12 AM
That's great, no slipups!!! Are you 100% raw before the cleanse? I am now about 75% and would really love to commit even more. With the warmer weather here, I am hoping it makes the transition easier.
are you doing the complete MC or are you adding fresh juice, coconut water etc. I have a coconut in my fridge and don't want it to go bad, maybe I will have the water for lunch.
Rawvive, how is your day going?
Great job, you have me inspired!:D
04-10-2010, 11:36 AM
Yes, I have been raw for almost 2 years. I had a slip up about a month ago which made me decide it was time for a cleanse. It was exactly what I needed to get my mind/body back to where it should be. :o I am doing lemon/cayenne/grade b syrup & water - nothing else.
04-10-2010, 09:44 PM
mindysue - that is awesome! my first time i set out for 10 and did 19 - it was one of those - hey! let's see how long i can feel this great!:)
liz! how's it goin? my pre-cleanse sort of faded with the overnight sleep clinic visit...but tomorrow was/is my official start date anyway. i'm still doing the lemon drink every day - now i'm going to start adding the swf and colonix in starting tomorrow evening.....so ready....hoping to do 2-3 weeks this time....
04-11-2010, 07:03 PM
3 weeks? That 's great. I am on day 7. I'm doing okay here. Not sure how much longer, I wanted to do 14 day's, but I'm kind of bored. Need to reset myself for tomorrow. Monday is a new day and starting a new week. :)
I am adding Kambucha tea and that helps switch things up a bit. I know adding anything other then the lemonade, tea and swf isn't truly the MC, but I need to do what I can to continue.
Lost 7 lbs so far. I feel physically great and mentally great, but sometimes I feel like I can easily talk myself out of finishing.
Good thing for this forum!!
04-12-2010, 10:28 AM
You are halfway there, lizbar!!
I started my official mc today - I thought the 7 day pre-cleanse would help me ease into it, but not really. SWF - ick!! Oh well - need to do this. Want to do this. After this week, it'll be much easier for me - just getting over these first few days.
If you want to/need to change things up, maybe juice the whole lemon instead of in a press? Or how about warming the water up slightly? I know the second time I did the mc, I did the swf warm and it was like a salty broth. Just some ideas....
Have a wonderful day!
04-13-2010, 04:28 AM
The swf isn't bad if you use tepid water and drink it fast through a straw. This is my 2nd mc, and I opted out of the swf as it did nothing for me the first time :confused:
This is day #24 for me - nearing the end of a wonderful master cleanse! :p
04-13-2010, 12:51 PM
Hey! I take back what I said yesterday - the pre-cleanse really did help. I'm on official Day 2 and so far breezing through. The last two times I struggled on the first few days.
Lizbar.......oh Lizbar......where are you...?:)
04-13-2010, 03:48 PM
Hi Rawvive, Still here!! Babysat my nephew today. How are you feeling? I am embarassed to say I had a very small salad. I am so disappointed with myself. whay did you do the pre cleanse. i wasn't even hungry so i don;t know why i ate. :confused:
i hope your day goes great!!!
i'll check back.
are you 100% raw usually and what do you plan after your cleanse?
i am about 75% now,but would like to be more.
04-14-2010, 09:45 AM
so you ate a salad - no biggie - don't get down on yourself.
i am really, really sick today.... :( skipped the swf yesterday because i knew i would be in a place without a bathroom for several hours.:eek:
paying the price big time now.
did a pre-cleanse so i could ease into it. just drank the mc drink during the day but allowed myself to eat in the evening. was nice to give myself 7 days of that not counting. :)
ugh. back to the couch....
04-14-2010, 02:45 PM
Sorry your feeling under the weather. That swf is a killer. I'm back on board. I feel like the worst cleansing buddy. I am having a harder time this cleanse. I
I am going to go through the weekend and see how I feel.
thanks for the support.
04-14-2010, 06:29 PM
lizbar - you are not the worst cleansing buddy! i'm slowly coming back to life. slowly.
it's funny because i was lamenting for the past 24 hours how this is worse than food poisoning - and then i realized - it sort of was food poisoning for all that time i was not eating raw!! :)
once i get through this part, feel like i'll be able to fly with this....
04-14-2010, 06:43 PM
How long have you been raw? I would love to go 100%, but I'll b happy with alittle less. Hope your feeling a little better. Are you sick from detoxing?
Check back later.
I think I might go on the may 30 day challenge, I have 2 events to go to so we'll see.
04-15-2010, 06:09 AM
Day #25 for me! :D
Did I read somewhere in the book that it's ok to drink tea? Or did I dream it :p.... I don't have the book handy to check.
Hope you all are doing great on your MC! :)
04-15-2010, 07:27 AM
It says you can have peppermint tea. How are you doing? Going strong? You must feel awesome.
I noticed my appetite is sort of gone. Took my kids for pizza and usually would grab a bit, but no desire this time:D.
Rawvive, how are you doing today? (Probably too early to ask, it's only 8am)
Happy clensing !
04-15-2010, 05:20 PM
Hey there ladies!
This is so interesting....third time doing MC and each was so different.....
I was raw up until January 09 and went away for a two week silent Vipassana meditation retreat. They don't allow outside food, and although it is vegetarian, I got really ill from a soy dinner and between that and the depth of my experience, I lost my mojo for a whole year. Sort of just kept spinning away from raw no matter how much I tried to regain. :-( So just getting to it all this February.
Day 4. Cramping gone. Vomiting gone (that was new). :eek: Just feel kind of mellow now. I did "cheat" so far - I took Excedrin Migraine! I just wasn't up for any more misery and needed to sleep after two days of no sleep from the pain.
Really enjoying peppermint tea this time. Still not enjoying the swf. :)
04-15-2010, 07:12 PM
Well today is day 10 and I think I am done. I have somewhre to go monday night, so I think I am going to ease out tonight and end my cleanse. It was an okay cleanse, but struggled a bit.
Rawvive, I will keep up with you and maybe we can catch up with another this summer>
