View Full Version : Master Cleanse to just water?
Ok so far I did two days of a juice fast, then started the master cleanse....kind of. I can not stomach the lemonade. This is the third day I have tried to stomach it and I have been lucky to get in two glasses. I can't see six a day happening for the next ten or so days. Can I just skip the lemonade and start calling it a water fast? The detox tea in the morning and evening isn't bad and I don't need energy for anything. Honest to goodness I just can't drink that vile stuff but I have heard lemons are so good for you. Maybe I can leave out the maple syrup and take cayenne pills? Any thoughts or advice? I don't want to give up the fast. I feel amazing and empowered like I could conquer the world. I just can't conquer this nasty drink and I don't wanna!!!

if you think you would do ok on a water fast then go ahead. maybe you could just do a juice fast. you can add lemon to your juices. lemon and apples make a delish juice.

It's been a few days, and I imagine you've decided on a course of action. I thought I would mention though, that I have done the master cleanse for as many as 19 days, and this march I did a 5 day water fast followed by 5 day juice fast. I found tons of information and resources in the fasting section of this board (as well as fasting fellowship). After the reading I did, I was very comfortable doing a water fast, and found it no harder than doing the master cleanse. I think your state of mind is critical to successfully completing a water fast, and researching actual information on water fasting will give you what you need to have the right mindset.
Whatever you decided on, I hope it is going well for you. If you are curious on reading my experience with the water fast, check out the March 2011 fasting thread.
