Group Cleanse Support Topic: Psychological and Emotional Effects (My Experience)

This page is a Support Topic Page for The Psychological and Emotional Effects for our Master Cleanse Group Cleanse. Please check that page for details on our Quarterly Cleanses and our Individual Cleanses.

To learn more about the value of Group Cleansing, check out this report.

The Group Cleanse will not only give us the forum to support each other, doing The Master Cleanse together, but it also enables us to track our experiences by setting standards to the conversation. If we all just posted random thoughts we would get a lot less value from the comments. But if the comments are structured, and relevant by time and topic, we can gain even more insight, more quickly and more effectively. Therefore we ask participants to start and finish the Master Cleanse on the same dates.

Support Topic: Psychological and Emotional Effects

Psychological

What is going through your mind? We have thoughts that seem out of control when we are in our daily grind – many of these revolve around food. We may also feel stress that in turn causes us to eat, to have emotional reactions. Many people report feeling in more control while doing The Master Cleanse – alongside a sense of clarity. Do commercials about food drive you crazy? Are you more patient than ever?

Post your experiences on these topics:

If you are not participating, you can follow the post to get inspiration to try the cleanse or answer the most basic question: Is The Master Cleanse right for me?

Keep it simple, just talk in your own language about your daily experience. The more you are yourself, the more others will connect with you – and the more you can connect with what they are saying – which is what we want after all, a strong support network through a group experience.

    Hi!
    I have been doing this cleanse since 1999. & am doing my best to try it again. The night is such a big temptation for me. Something about the night makes me break my fast & eat. I have to have patience & just keep trying.

    Hello, everyone. Today is day four of my master cleanse, and the worst is behind me. I’m sorry to be late to the party in tracking my experience. I just found out about this website yesterday! I have attempted the cleanse six times in the past. My first was 15 days, and I lost 17 pounds. My 2nd+10 days, and I lost about 12 pounds. These were about one year apart. After that, I don’t think I attempted another cleanse for about three more years. My third cleanse around 2012 was only about a week long, and my fourth and fifth the times were six months ago and one month ago, respectively, for about one week each. All of my cleanse attempts of help me lose weight and made me feel like I detoxed significantly, however, none of my cleanse attempts have ever created a sustained change of lifestyle for improved eating thereafter. Eventually, I always regressed back into my old habits.

    OK so, my psychological reactions. Well, I am certainly not impervious to the onslaught of temptations that surround me in my media and in the environment around me. Driving anywhere, watching any television or Internet browsing, everywhere I go, food advertisers are attacking us in every possible way. Some of them are moderate and even health-neutral. But many others are cruel and disgusting attempts at preying on the vulnerability of our most essential psychological tendencies towards food, our natural, subconscious need to survive, exploiting us for commercial gain. Carls Junior of course comes to mind, as do so many of the other giant corporations that sell poison to the public.

    I will continue to rise above these false temptations, and give myself permission to acknowledge these cravings, recognize that they are temporary and, most important Lee, keep my intention focused on my long-term goals.

    Thanks for letting me share, everybody.

    Day 1 – I feel good today and loving the lemon drink!
    Yesterday on ease-in day 3 I was already feeling sad because I am such an emotional eater. I feel like I was abusing food and over eating too often, so this cleanse is much needed.
    Excited to keep going and plan on taking it one day at a time <3
    Good luck everyone & cheers ;)
