Ok,,,,warning,,,this is gross - don't open if you have a weak tummy
I did the Master Cleanse Saturday and Sunday and had some veggie juice/soup last night which felt good to me.
Today I wasn't feeling like I needed to do that anymore - and went to a health food store and got wheatgrass juice ( a 3 oz. shot ) some "detox" juice made with apples, celery, beets, and I forget what else
And I made a salad from the salad bar
I sat outside there and ate i/2 the salad and 1/2 the juice
Got in the car
and a few minutes later felt sick to my stomach
I went to grab something - but I couldn't move fast enough and I threw up all over Jerry's car.
I mean - it just went all over.
I couldn't even stop driving because the street I was on had nowhre to stop, and no street to turn onto. It was horrible.
I was close to Jerry's work so I went there and - - bravely rang the bell to his office - and a co-worker came out - I had vomited on my top - my pants - my arm - my hair -
and although I tried to clean it up - it looked horrible.
I told her I spilled in his car....
Jerry got me an entire rool of paper towels and I did my best but it needs to be deep cleaned at a car wash....another $100 down the drain.
Luckily I have a doctor appointment today so I can tell him what happened....
But I don't know what to eat now?
Jerry suggested chicken broth......NOT ON THE RAW PLAN THANK YOU!
I have a feeling my body just couldn't deal with food after 2 days without it.
I'm surprised becasue all it was - was salad and juice.
I did put hummus and olives on it - maybe that was too rich???
Sorry this is so - gross - But I warned you!
Awwe Catherine I'm so sorry you had to go through that!!
I'm sorry I can't help you with your quetion though, never experienced anything like that... I hope you feel better soon!!!
I wish I could have been the other car next to you and watch this happen ;)
probably a couple of things to consider.......until you see your doctor
MC is a powerful --the lemon is a very powerful cleanser and "impactful" on the body, that going into something as powerful if not stronger, the wheagrass juice, can make you tweek--I know wheatgrasss itself makes some people nauseated. Preferaably when coming out of a fasting or juicing, be REALLY lite in your choice--brothe ( uncooked) would have been a safer choice or even OJ that is suggested by Stanely Burrough's MC.
I made the mistake and ate food too......I was bloated thereafter for over a week. I temporarily messed up my digestive system and had to regroup and take baby steps again.
Hey, slow down, your journal and my journal are --I swear, a mirror image of each other (!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
Poor boyfriend---at least he LOVES you that mych throw him a ^5 gor us.

Let's journey together. See my blog for details.
Poor, poor girl! I had that happened once; I wasn't the driver, but it was still awful and a mess and embarrassing to no end. And the car was new.
I've not done the MC, but from all I've read about various cleanses, it seems that perhaps you "mixed it up" a bit too much for just coming off it. Soup, wheatgrass juice, salad, etc. (Maybe tummy was saying, "Oh I've had nothing for a few days and now it's 5 different fruits and 10 different veggies in 2 meals! and then the hummus and olives...) I've read to come off it very, VERY simply, some very light juice and perhaps mono meals of light fruit the 2nd day.
I know there are tons of people on this board who have much more experience with this, but I'd treat it as if I just came off a flu that had me unable to eat-very, very gently and keep it bland.
I hope you are feeling much better!
Thanks for the big hug! I thought a salad and juice WAS simple - I guess not!!!!
Just went to the doc and found out a bunch of things that don't make me very happy....but that I will write in a new thread.
I am sorry you had to go thru that Catherine. I agree with what the others wrote, your belly was just probably fightin' mad from all the abuse...It was just sitting there napping, when suddenly...!!!!
...and yes, wheatgrass can definately induce nausea in someone who is not used to it properly...
My advice is to be kind to yourself. You will come thru this. If it makes you fell any better, I once had to leave work ill, and called a girl friend to pick me up..It was so bad that I had to ask her to pull over so I could be sick...SInce that time everytime I drive around that corner, I remember. In a way it is a blessing that you were alone when it happened...
Take care of yourself. We will all be here for you.
When you do the MC you are not supposed to eat anything the day after the last fasting day but orange juice. Then you add veggie soup and a salad. There is guy who wrote an updated MC and he has a site explaining the menu the days after.
I haven't done the MC yet, have some things going on physically that will prevent me right now, but I DO plan to do it.
