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.

This page is the place for participants in the The Master Cleanse Group Experience to post their daily entries. To post, simply leave a comment. You don’t have to be logged in to post. Please provide 100 words each day – don’t worry; that’s not that much. The paragraph below, for example, is 100 words.

Support Topic: Psychological and Emotional Effects


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.

    Well I can admit the first 3 days of Ease in and the first 2 days Lemonade Diet was really rough especially because I had to cook for my husband and go grocery shopping! Oh how I wanted to snack and buy things for me. But kept thing no you are going to do this! Note to self when doing this never go into a store that offers samples Its Torture! haha… After the 3rd day in the LD-MC I was able to get through it all. I cooked for my husband and missed all the lunch and learns food at work. Lost 7 pounds so far and I am on my day 7 of the cleanse. hope I make it through the Halloween party on Friday! Wish me luck!

    Day 1 Ease Out!! Wow it feels good to say the ease out part. I feel so empowered and accomplished from this fast. I think it might have been one of the hardest forms of self discipline I have had to face. Truly. My carvings were intense the first three days. so much so that two of those days I stayed in bed under my covers, for fear if I left my room I would eat something. The last two days were hard too as I felt so hungry. Like real hunger. i have never allowed myself to feel real hunger before, because i am always stuffing my face. I knew I was getting enough calories so I knew I wasn’t starving myself but my body was now dipping into fat reserves for energy. I am feel more confident now that I can trust my body to tell me when it needs to eat and I will keep my portions small and within the 1200 calorie range for the next fee months of weight loss. And emotionally I feel so calm and balanced. This has been a great experience!!

    I am on my 3rd day of ease in with drinking my 8 glasses of orange juice as well as my 8 glasses of water. I was actually doing ok until I drank a 8 oz glass of water with my Greens tea. It balances alkalizes and detoxes body. Well that made me go immediately to RR as soon as I drank that. Maybe I will skip that for the rest of the cleanse. this is going to be a real challenge because so many office lunch and learns this week. I am praying I can be strong!

    Good Morning. It’s 3:33 am. Today would be day 9 for me. It’s hard. I have yet to be able to make it through one whole day without eating something. Some days I can make it through until work is over and then (due to many changes going on over the past almost week), I will slip back into emotional eating. I’m disappointed in myself, no one around understands the weight and food issues I have. I know this cleanse is what my body needs and I don’t want to just flat out give up. I pray today is my true Day 1 and I have no set days to do this until, maybe I should. I need a break from the same unhealthy eating. I need support. I am so happy for those who’ve been able to do this each day and not give in and pray for those like me and am looking forward to a successful Day 1. Do I start over or keep counting it as Day 9?

My self I won’t ….well good luck to you and I both :)

    11:00 PM Tuesday night. I am at work. This is basically the start of day 3 for me. I had cravings yesterday morning, which for me is dinner time, but im not ready to give in. I slept better yesterday. SWF did not work earlier this afternoon. I will increase by a tablespoon or so. This was my first attempt to flush. I have had regular small movements though. I have lost 4 or 5 # since the weekend also.

    Day Eight!! I am so happy I made it this far. Day five, six and seven were really tough. I was rationalizing with myself that it was long enough and I could ease out into a clean diet. But I just kept thinking tomorrow I will start the ease out, tomorrow. Then when tomorrow came, I would tell myself the same thing. I am not craving as much any more. I still miss food but can see some amazing benefits now. Mostly my energy is increasing and my depression I was in pre- fast is lifting. It feels good to be alive again. So even though i still wanna eat starches the benefits of not far out weight the desire to.

    Started the diet Sunday evening at work. I did not ease in by the book but I guess thats ok. Its 2:30 am and Im feeling fine. I dont think I will try the SWF until Tuesday. Long way to go.

      Hi Patrick, sleep is critical. Baby yourself. Get a good 8 hours in a consistent nighttime window.
