Just wanted to introduce myself and of course seek guidance from you all that are currently living this way of life. I'm a 41 year old divorced mom of 2 teenage girls. Due to juggling motherhood and a CRAZY work schedule I look alot older than my 41 yrs on this earth and I know for a fact its because of the things I put in my mouth (I'm an emotional eater....I'm 5'1 and currently weight in at 233 lbs). I have alot of weight to take off of my short body. I saw Alissa's program on Tyra Banks' Diet Wars show and it's like a LIGHT shone before my eyes....sounds corny but true. I think I've finally found the answer to shedding this ton of extra weight, to make my outer shell be healthy and trim and to getting my eyes to shine again. What I wanted to know what is the Master Cleanse? I'm really interested in doing it before I go "raw". Looking forward to all of your input and ideas.
