Support From Family and Friends

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.

Post your experiences on the support you get from family and friends here; and on other topics below.

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

Keep it simple; just use your own language to describe your daily experience. The more you are yourself, the more others will connect with you and the more you can connect with them – which is what we are aiming for, after all: a strong support network via a group experience.

We have probably all experienced the “What’s wrong with you?” look when telling friends or family that we are trying the Master Cleanse. And equally, most of us have at least one person in our life who supports us. The Lemonade Diet is difficult, and (dis)approval by our peers can make all the difference.

In fact, that is why I started this Master Cleanse Group Experience diary; we can support each other.

Let us know about the people and experiences you have each and every day. Who made fun of you? Who showed compassion? Who understood the cleansing, and who thought you were nuts?

Make sure you get regular updates to the comments posted by participants of the Master Cleanse Group Experience. You can get updates by email or through an RSS feed reader by clicking here.

    EASE OUT – DAY 3 – NEWBIE ->

    just got home from work after being gone 8am to 11pm… worked 13 hr shift + 2hr total commute is 15hrs away from home… today I support myself by reflecting on all that I have experienced that is fresh and new… this clean feeling inside me is certainly refreshing and light and exhilarating … but I remember being blessed to live in Mt. Shasta for 3.5yrs and scoop up the natural purified water from the headwaters of the Sacramento River and drinking only this water every day for 3.5yrs… then I remember living in Santa Barbara for 5yrs and just walking out my front door and picking fresh organic lemons right off the trees (and avocados too)… this is supporting me by remembering who I really am.. where I have been… where I want to go…and I remember my grandmother making me fresh sassafras tea after she had just dug the roots out of the ground.. wishing i was drinking sassafras tea now

    Ease Out DAY 3 (Newbie) – In retrospect, the only person who gave me a hard time was a girlfriend who just kept trying to get me to break the cleanse to meet her needs and wants, so I just avoided her during the whole time. She actually said “can I get you to break the cleanse and go out drinking with me?” I actually said the word “no” to her and she got the hint and never bothered me again about it. Everyone else was great. And I actually went out a lot, in the middle of temptation, a lot during the cleanse. My biggest enemy was me, the whole time. I just need to get food out of my head. Bad food anyways. Thank you for the opportunity to share. And thank you for the support MC community!

    EASE OUT – DAY 2 – NEWBIE ->

    When its time to release, its time to release!!! So much has happened with my body, and my life these past two weeks (3 Ease In + 10 Lemonade + 2 Ease Out)…. really, its been like a 1,000 lifetimes in two weeks… and still one more day to go… well its very hard to admit but I gained 50lbs last year during our busy work season Feb – April… so much STUFFING… and not dealing with things… today, our top-top-top manager met with me from 10.30am-5pm for my feedback and ideas to make our season this year much better… he said he did not know me, but wants to know me and learn my perspectives… my immediate supervisor was so shocked the top guy gave me all this attention.. he listened INTENTLY for 6 hours… we took 1/2 lunch break separately… cuz he had calls to make.. and I just drank my Lemonade… well… I’m releasing and losing that 50lb bundle from last year, and releasing all that havoc it caused both mentally and physically… it was incredibly supportive day… what I’ve learned is that it’s NOT the management that’s making a difference… ITS ME MAKING A DIFFERENCE… I shifted… coming out of hiding (weight is hiding in my opinion)… it me being proactive and active… all may efforts are being validated and the world is shifting in a supportive response for my efforts… today was a 14.5hr work day… but a very remarkable day of cleansing and growth!
