    The end of cleanse day 4…I’m still using the same process to make my lemonade drink, except this morning I didn’t have time to drink my drink at home and I didn’t want it to be super spicy so I pre-made it but left the cayenne pepper out until I got to work and then I waited until I got hungry and added my cayenne pepper and chugged it down. I can’t sip it because it has become the high point of my day. I noticed myself looking at that bottle of lemonade like it was a three course meal.

      I;m sorry I meant the end of day 5…I don’t know how I could mix that up

    The end of day 4…I am still satisfied with the lemonade but I think I may need to make more than 32 ounces. I usually make a 16 ounce bottle in the morning and another 16 ounce bottle in the evening after my workout but I seem to get really hungry in the afternoons I usually just drink a lot of water to kill the hunger pangs and that usually helps. The reason I don’t make a bottle in the afternoon is because I am at work and I don’t want to make the bottle ahead of time because the longer it sits the spicier it gets. I’ve considered adding some psyllium husk to my drink to make it more filling but I’m not sure how it would affect my cleanse.

    Day 4 I’be been sweating in the night and hot flashing during the day. I thought that business was over for me. Also I have an enhanced sense of smell. I don’t like the smell of my husband or my son. Wow! Very strong! Yucko! I’m opening up the windows but it’s cold out. Tired tonight

    The end of day 3…I made it!! This day wasn’t difficult for me at all. I only had like 32 ounces of the lemonade drink but that’s all that I really needed, once I drank a bottle this morning and a bottle after my workout I was satisfied. One of the other posters stated that if you let the lemonade sit it tastes different, I must agree. I let mine sit and it taste extra spicy. I have stopped eating the lemon (guilty) and now I just use the juice. I also look forward to the smooth move tea at night, it kinda signifies bedtime for me.

    Ahhhh Day 3 coming to a close! Hello fello cleansers! It’s very helpful to know I’m not alone in this process. I appreciate all of you and your comments. I always feel very vulnerable the first few days for fear that I’ll say forget it and do it another time…. Especially at dinner time. But I know that I want to get rid of my excess blubber and feel fantastic going into the upcoming holidays.
    Today was a busy day and I had to pack myself lemonade ahead for the day. After the lemonade sits it never tastes that same anyhow It satisfied me along with some Kava tea to relax.

    Day two…The lemonade has become something I look forward to. It is so darn good to me and it feels like I can feel the warmth in my tummy when I drink it. When I make it, I usually make two servings at a time so instead of 8 ounces I have 16 ounces handy. I drink it when I fell hunger and it helps out a lot, I don’t even think about food when I drink it. I need to read Stanley Burroughs book and see why he recommends making 8 ounces at a time. I wonder if it’s okay to eat the lemons or if I puree the lemons would it be okay to just use the whole lemon

    The lemonade diet day one… It’s going pretty well. The lemonade is surprisingly satisfying it cuts my hunger pretty quick and gives me a boost of energy, and it tastes pretty good also! I had to cut my cayenne pepper back a bit, I believe that the cayenne pepper that I purchased was the really spicy kind.The maple syrup is DELICIOUS! I can’t wait to put some on some pancakes, look at me already thinking about food, lol. It gave me enough energy to work out. I usually fast once a year and it’s a little stricter than this fast, so I feel as long as I have the lemonade drink I will be okay, but time will tell.

    Ease in day 1- I have read up on the master cleanse and have read a book on it also. However there are many books out there with different ease in ideas and with different menus for the three days prior to start, The resounding agreement is, if you want to have an easier go of this program than complete a three day ease in period. This is to get your stomach and mind in the proper place of not eating any solid food and ingesting only liquids. So this is what I did. The book I read instructed to drink large amts of water all day without any food and to eat a regular dinner. I did this without difficulty. It was a good day and it further made me psychologically ready and more anxious to get the process going. I know I am ready to do this process and today just reinforced it!!!!!!

    My cravings have almost vanished, but with a glass of juice I am back on track. It sure feels nice to have my body cleansed…so good!

    I did start my cycle over a week early this morning. About 9-10 days early. I suppose that is normal with all of the changes my body is going through…Does anybody know if this is something to be concerned about? I think it is most likely just my body adjusting.

    I have one more day to go after this! I am so proud of myself. I’ve been watching youtube videos about other people’s process. Some have been encouraging and others have not. One video almost made me talk myself into cheating the process and adding other things..but I decided I just want to do it this standard way first, and do the complete process exactly how it is supposed to be done, so that I have something to compare it to if I decide to go a different route next time around.

    For awhile there, I was wondering if it was just too ‘harsh.’ Even before I started this, the thought of all that lemon going into my system made me wonder if it was going to be harsh…it just sounded like it would. And I was also wondering about all the maple syrup. I usually do not use that much sweetener. And I do have a virus in my body that I know sugar feeds. I haven’t had any problems with it. Apparently the lemon counteracts the sweetness a little bit and balances things out. The more I get into this cleanse, the more it really makes sense for me. I feel the things being loosened up in my body, and the ingredients seem perfect. True, there were some harsh times that occurred with my emotions and such…but in reality they needed to be loosened and released. There wasn’t really going to be a pretty way about it. So I am glad that I got some rage out of my system. I’ve been singing and toning on my drive to work which takes 45 minutes one way, so I have expressed a lot through sound, which I believe is one of the vehicles emotions takes to leave the being and enter into the outside world.
    I’m very grateful for this experience and I look forward to adopting a fresher lifestyle after this. Peace!

    Master Cleanse Day 7

    I have been craving a lot of foods lately that I wouldn’t even normally eat, like dairy products. Cheese, fried eggs, ice cream. I don’t even like consuming those things. Perhaps it is a survival mechanism being triggered? Like ‘ get some nutrients into your body, fast!’ Having these kinds of cravings doesn’t make the ease out process seem any easier. I don’t want to drink juice and make green drinks! I want a tofu stir-fry right away! Of course I am not going to do that. But man oh man. It sure sounds good :-).

    This is the first day I’ve actually gotten to be at home. I’ve had to pre-mix the lemon and maple the whole time to last anywhere from 5 to hours of activity. I am grateful that I have this time at home to mix up fresh juice every single time, to lounge, to write, to stretch…it is so nice to not be on the go.
