Ease-Out: Stopping The Master Cleanse

This Post is #5 in a 5 Part Series “How to Master Cleanse“:

Ease-In | Detox Tea | Lemonade DietSalt Water Flush | > Ease-Out | View All

Before we dig to far into what the Ease-Out phase of The Master Cleanse, is (also known as The Lemonade Diet), let’s recall there are three main phases of the master cleanser:

  1. Ease-In: 3 Days of Slowly removing processed foods from your diet.
  2. The Lemonade Diet: 10 Days to Lose Weight Fast, and Feel Great At Last
  3. Ease-Out3 Days of slowly eating more and more complex foods.

Each of these three phases is equally as important to you successfully completing this challenging cleanse. It is very important to follow these directions carefully.

The Ease-out process of The Master Cleanse is the exact same as the Ease-In, but in reverse. This is also another reason I choose to do the Ease-In – it prepares me for the Ease-Out. You will be tempted to fast-track this process, but DON’T.

Why is the Ease-Out So Important?

Consider this step as ESSENTIAL. You can become nauseated if you start to eat too soon. Please don’t underestimate the importance of this process. On the other hand, don’t be scared of it either. You do risk some serious constipation or some of the worse Complications of The Master Cleanse – but if you eat something too soon, you will likely be okay in the long run. If you are unsure at any time – consult a doctor. My words here are opinion only, and should always be considered informational not medical advice.

Just as you wouldn’t try running a marathon after being a couch potato for three years, you wouldn’t brake a cleanse by launching into full-feasting mode. You want your digestive system to get well-deserved brake so that your body can start back on the right track. ”

 

The most important factor to keep in mind during this stage of The Master Cleanse is to drink a lot of water. Especially when you are Fruit Juicing and Vegetable Juicing. If you do not make broth, and opt for juices instead, it is important you understand that the juice will have a great deal of fiber, and you need to make sure you have enough water in your system to keep you from becoming constipated.

What is the Ease-Out Process?

The Ease-out process is the exact same as the Ease-in, but in reverse. This is another reason I choose to do the Ease-in: it prepares me for the Ease out. You will be tempted to jump-start this part of the process, but don’t. Consider this step ESSENTIAL.

At this point, you have done 10 or more days of cleansing. Now you can come off the Lemonade Diet in one of two ways:

  1. Eating a Vegetarian Diet
  2. Or eating a Normal Diet

Here is a quote from Tom Woloshyn’s book The Complete Master Cleanse on the Easing out: “This important transition period of moving from lemonade to food will prepare your digestive system for more and more complex foods so that it does not become overwhelmed. Just as you wouldn’t try running a marathon after being a couch potato for three years, you wouldn’t break a cleanse by launching into full-feasting mode. You want your digestive system to get well-deserved brake so that your body can start back on the right track. ”

How to break The Lemonade diet?




Lemonade Diet Juicing Bible Book

There is a very specific way of re-introducing food to your digestive system that has been resting for 10 or more days. Less is definitely more in this case.

  • Day 1 – Orange Juice – 3 1-liter orange juice with 2 tablespoons of maple syrup
  • Day 2 – Fruit and Veggie Juice – or Broth
  • Day 3 – Fruits and Veggies
  • Day 4 – Regular Diet; however, you should try to eat live foods – grains, etc.

Ease-Out Day 1 – Orange Juice

Ease-Out Day 1 Orange Juice

Manually or electrically juice enough oranges to make 2 liters of Orange Juice, mixed with water. Sometimes I find it hard to get the calories I need through the day and so I add some Maple Syrup to increase my caloric intake. Some people might want to dilute the orange juice with water for one day, to make the transition easier. Drink only fresh squeezed orange juice throughout the day.

Ease-Out Day 2 – Juicing, Blending, Soups and Broths

This step preps your body for a liquid diet and delivers macro nutrients more quickly to your bloodstream. By breaking down the foods to liquids we can more readily take in the nutrients from the food. Fruit and Vegetable Juicing is very enjoyable. There are endless combination’s of tasty juicing recipes. Blending is equally enjoyable. Green smoothies are like drinking a glass of healing. If you do not have a juicer, you can make soup or broths.

Ease-Out Day 3 – Living Food Diet, Raw Food Diet

Eating Greens

To do the Living Food Diet, or Raw Food Diet, you need only to eat live foods. Simply remove processed foods, meat and dairy from your diet. Enjoy shopping for, and eating interesting fruits and vegetables. Savor the rich flavors and textures. Be sure that you don’t go too heavy on fruits as they are high in sugar. A 60/40 balance of vegetables to fruits is a good guideline.

Importance of drinking enough water while Easing-out

Drink Lots of Water when Ending The Master Cleanse

The most important factor to keep in mind during this stage is to drink a lot of water, especially when you are fruit and veggie juicing. If you do not make broth, and opt for juices instead, it is important you understand that the juice will have a great deal of fiber, and you need to make sure you have enough water in your system to keep you from becoming constipated.

What happens if I start eating solid food too soon?

You may become nauseated if you start to eat too soon, so please don’t underestimate the importance of this process. On the other hand, don’t be scared to death either. You do risk some serious constipation or even worse — but if you do eat something too soon, you will likely be okay in the long run. If you are unsure at any time — consult a doctor. My words here are opinion only, and should always be considered informational, not medical advice.

Post Cleanse – After The Master Cleanse – Adopt a Healthy Lifestyle




Going Raw Book

When you are done The Master Cleanse, the next and maybe most important step is to begin to Eat Wisely. This sounds so simple, yet so many people go right back to eating emotionally to soothe their daily worries. Choose to Eat Wisely, and you will not put the weight back on. If you go back to Eating Poorly, you will gain back all the weight you just lost — and maybe more!

After completing the cleansing process, many people are inspired to choose a new approach to the way they eat. It is also a common experience for people to have very different, much healthier cravings. For some people this is a foundation to completely change their diet to:

  • Raw-food Diet
  • Vegetarian Diet
  • Vegan Diet

If you find your self inclined to do this, go with what your body tells and is craving now that you have an opportunity “to start from scratch”, you may say.

Start taking Probiotics after you have completed the cleanse

Align Probiotics after The Master Cleanse

Make sure to start taking Probiotics after you finished the Cleanse. It is very important to replenish the good bacteria in your body that has been flushed out during the Cleansing process. The word “probiotic” means “for life.” Probiotics are good bacteria that provide many health benefits and are essential for many vital body functions, including healthy digestion.

Pick Your Start Date

Master Cleanse Start DateIn our experience, Friday’s are great days for starting the Ease-In, leaving the following Monday for you to begin your Lemonade Diet. Strategically this makes your starting weekend a hybrid of cleanse and food. This also leaves the Ease-Out to fall prior to the end of the second week, and ultimately only 1 full weekend while on the Lemonade Diet. This helps substantially with people’s work and social schedules.

Finally, choosing your seasonal selection is also important. Look at your calendar and and notice major events like National Holidays, and personal events like weddings, graduations, etc. Find the first opportunity that you have 2 weeks off following one of these events. You can then really dig in and enjoy your last indulgences and get ready for a fresh start free from any of the pitfalls and temptations that these events are certain to cause.

Get Your Master Cleanse Kit

Master Cleanse KitThere are 3 parts to your Master Cleanse Kit. Part 2, Lemons, of course are perishable.

Lose Weight & Feel Great – Like Dr. Wayne Dyer Did

Wayne Dyer Master Cleanse QuoteYes The Master Cleanse is about Cleanse and Detox, but many of you are for the Weight Loss. Well, great news! As a reduction diet, The Master Cleanse is beyond compare. Be prepared to lose up to 2 lbs per day as fat melts away. Please note, that this is not typical, and results definitely vary. You’ll only lose weight if your body feels you need to. Some people, especially those underweight or malnourished can sometimes put on weight. Most people however, carrying extra weight in fat, will see dramatic, fast, and natural weight loss.

Last but not least, the Cleanse and Detox is a Whole Body experience. You’ll not only feel great about how you look, but you’ll be more aware, proud, and empowered with your ability to be confident, committed in your new healthy lifestyle. Not to mention the famous “Cleansers” High most notably touted by Dr. Wayne Dyer, who proclaims:

I feel great and taken weight off around my middle. It’s just kinda disappeared. I have lost 14 or 15 pounds I have more energy. I am doing yoga again. I am back walking. I was having real issues with my back. Joint pains and things like that seem to have all gone. I have a new kind of clarity as well.

Happy Cleansing everyone and Thank you for visiting our website! We hope to see you here soon again.

    I am on day 9 of the MC, when I ease out and make the soup, Can substitute Quinoa for brown rice?

  2. teresa May 21, 2015 at 10:25 am #

    I have done the MC a few times with the longest time being 49 days a few years ago. I am currently on DAY 11 and have a question I hope someone can help me with. I am traveling to Costa Rica in a few days and will be staying in hostels the whole time (14 days) while there. Are there any suggestions on how I can continue the cleanse while in Costa Rica in hostels? I thought about packing all the supplies but since I am only taking a small backpack, there is no way for me to do that. I do not know if Grade B Maple Syrup will be available while there, most likely it will not be. I would like to continue the cleanse if possible but not sure about it so am thinking I have to end at day 14 so there is enough time to EASE OUT and then just eat fruit while in Costa Rica and come back to do more MC when I return to the states if I feel like it. Suggestions??

    Just completed the 10th day of my cleanser and I feel great! The salt wasn’t bad matter of fact the whole thing was great ,now I just want to stay focused and be healthy

    • Fernando June 15, 2015 at 6:15 am #

      Fresh coconut water will do the trick. In fact I have done a 40 day coconut water fast myself and found it as effective as the MC.

    I have a baby 3 mo ago Is it safe to do the master cleanse

    • T3xasgirl March 30, 2016 at 11:14 am #

      I would run it by his/her pediatrician first. You need to keep up calories for her/his needs. A doctor will be able to tell you what is safe.

    Ease-Out Day 1: Am I suppose to keep the orange juice in the fridge or on the counter??

  6. Solly June 8, 2013 at 12:54 am #

    Lemonade Diet Day 6: I plan on doing the cleanse for 14 days and I was wondering if it would work if I went on the “Cabbage soup diet” straight after?! It basically consists of a cabbage/vegetable based soup and additional things on different days; 1:fruit, 2: veg, 3: fruit and veg, 4: milk and bananas, 5: meat/ tofu and tomatoes, 6: meat/ tofu and veg, 7: brown rice. Would this mess up my digestive system straight away?!

    I’m on day 8 now, and I’ve been steadily dropping a pound or so a day. I woke up this morning and weighed in and I’ve gained 4lbs back in one day??(started at 155 was down to 147, now back up to 151) how is this possible?? I do not cheat, I follow the plan, I drink lots of water… the only change I made was I stopped the SWF for 2 days because of some early morning meetings I had to attend, but still eliminated. I did my SWF this morning again and plan to continue till my last day but why would this happen? Eager to hear back.

    • Carsten April 17, 2013 at 6:54 am #

      Hi Clarissa
      I am no expert, but what I do know is that your body can fluctuate 3-5 pounds in a day.

      My best way to measure consistantly is to always weigh myself at the same time each day.

      I am on my last day of my cleanse and lost 13 lbs so far, but there were days that my weight went up a pound or two.

    Day 1 of Lemonade Diet – This is my first time and I have to say its interesting already! Usually I fast once a week but this time I decided to add this cleanse to it. Wish me luck.

  9. Christina September 12, 2012 at 3:12 pm #

    Lemonade diet day 11. yes, day 11. I eased into this cleanse with fruits and veggies and salads for 4 days prior. I do the salt cleanse, which I have to say is not as bad as I thought. I gave myself time limits, drink 10oz in 5 minutes, rest for 2 min. drink 10oz in 5 min and so on until I finished all 32 oz. It takes about 15 minutes to take effect and then I’m set for the day. I have pre-juiced and fresh squeezed the lemons. I prefer the fresh. I used grade D maple syrup (biggest expense) and took cayenne pills instead of mixing with. I have barrette’s esophagus and cannot deal with the burn. I love, love, love this cleanse! Day 10 came and I really didn’t feel it was time to finish, so I am taking one day at a time and see where I can go from here. I NEVER thought I could go 1 day without food let alone 11 whole days! I now know that food is no longer my bondage. Feels really good! Thank you for the veggie recipes, I plan on using the one with zucchini! Good luck to anyone trying this for a first time. Stay focused and don’t listen to others. Your body, your choice!

    I completed a 40 day Master Cleanse and am currently on day 2 of easing out. On day 1, post-cleanse aka ease out, I made fresh squeezed orange juice at home and drank 66 ounces, or just over 3 liters, of it all through the day, along with 2 liters of water. I also began taking probiotics. I did not add maple syrup to the orange juice and had energy and continued to feel good. For day 2, I first drank salt water to flush my system and after a bowel movement, and once my system was settled down, I drank about 16 ounces of fresh squeezed orange juice along with the daily probiotic. I made about a gallon of fresh vegetable broth from scratch and will be drinking this for the next few days, along with fresh vegetable and fruit juices. The broth tastes amazing and was very easy to make. I also pureed the leftover vegetables from the broth and plan on eating the soft, pureed veggies over the next few days. I am definitely taking it easy, not rushing, listening to my body, and staying hydrated. Optional, I added a supplement to my first cup of broth. It is called Green Vibrance and has tons of probiotics in it.
