Lemonade Diet – Day 3 – Hump Day

If Wednesday is hump day of the work week, day 3 is the hump day of the Lemonade Diet. Most people describe day 2 and day 3 as the very worst for cravings. By day 4, your body has adapted to its new routine and is no longer expecting meals at the usual times and the familiar stuffed bellies provided by processed foods.

While this may be hump day for cravings, I don’t believe it is the same for the detox. Starting on day 4, many people describe getting headaches, rashes, slight colds and runny noses, and I believe this is due to the expulsion of toxins in our bodies, as they leave our system. Sick in, sick out. When we ingest toxins, we often have similar reactions – a sneeze, a stuffed nose, even a temperature. All of those things are reactions to contaminants detected by our immune system.

    Just finishing day three way better than the first two headache last night and this morning. Didn’t crave food did like I was yesterday. Not as tired today either. I only made it 4 days last time I tried.

    Today is my third day and I just feel tired. Not feeling hungry but just wanting to put something in my mouth. Day 1 was horrifying with a severe headache and day two with bad gas stomachs ache. Today I only feel a little gassy and tired. I have only lost 3 pounds so far but am hoping to continue through at least 15 days. I crave junk food really bad and always want to eat just because. This is my second time doing the cleanse and its been harder than the first. The first time was a year ago and I lost 30 lbs. 155-124. Unfortunately, I had surgery and was put on bed rest and began to eat just about everything you can think of and stopped working out; everything if course came back so I’m at 155 again. Can’t wait to feel full of energy again.

    Lemonade Day 3
    Wow, I had so much energy Day 1 and 2, today is a challenge. Ive done the master cleanse before, so I tried to brace myself for it, but it is still just as tough. Waking up and focusing at the office a challenge, but Im committed (today) to go at least three weeks and finish opff week four with fruits and vegetables. Its a high price to pay for a healthy body and to look fabulous in my clothes–well worth it!

    Lemonade day 3-

    This is my second time doing this cleanse and I think the first time was easier. Probably bc it was something new and exciting. Either way, I’ve been trying to cheat the SWF. That’s the part I can’t stand! So I decided to just dilute the 2 tsp of sea salt in a small amount of water, drink that then chase it with lots of plain water. I hope this works out the same and I don’t end up just getting bloated from all this salt. Has anyone else done this? Any other ways to “cheat” the SWF?

    I am halfway through day 3 and I have to say that it’s the hardest. I almost broke the cleanse today. I am super hungry, and craving everything. I noticed that my tongue is super white, and I am breaking out really bad. All i have to say is to stay strong, and hope for the best.

    Day 3: Hump Day – A literal walk in the park

    Most of the way through day three. I’ve been easing my way through so far. I eased in with 3 days of the Blue Print Cleanse which I’ve done over a dozen times over the past 3 years. I did something I’d never tried today on the cleanse. Went for a 4.5 mile walk (yes, in the park). About halfway through I got nervous I’d have an energy dip and I’d neglected to bring lemonade with me. I was fine ultimately, but wouldn’t recommend doing even light exercise unless there is a supply of lemonade.

    No cravings for food and I’ve consumed 6 glasses so far. I will have some tea and then will probably have a laxative tea before bed.

    No SWF for me this time but plenty of elimination.

    Cleanse day 3
    Day one and two were great , no cravings or side effects . Today every food smell made me nauteaus and tempted to quit ! Went to the grocery store today to buy lemons and I could smell everything . I stood by the prepared food section and literally could smell all the ingredients in the food. I was most irratable today and hoping I could get to sleep early . I feel tired and achy but I can’t seem to fall asleep. Laying in bed for 3 hours and nothing. I’ll try agian tommorrow.

    Hi there, I am on day 3 of the master cleanse. I have already lost 4 lbs and cant believe how it is making me feel. Yesterday was a little rough for me especially in the evenings is when I was craving food. Hoping today is better as I am determined to stick to this cleanse and make it to day 10.

    Lemonade Diet Day 3

    Today is day 3 for me. I didn’t to the ease in because I was previously on a mostly liquid diet so I felt my body had already adjusted to liquids as meals. Day 1 and 2 weren’t very bad for me, only very minor cravings for food, and only in the evening.

    I tried the salt water flush this morning and I was able to drink it all in about 5 minutes, but then it all came back up. Not very pleasant. I think it was due to the volume of water required. The taste isn’t great but it’s tolerable. I may try it again tomorrow and just reduce the amount of water by a little.

    Master Cleanse Lemonade Diet, Day 3

    I just finished Day 3! Day 3 was far better than Day 1 and 2. My physical hunger seemed to go away and I feel good. My skin looks soft and extremely clear. Hoping Day 4 will be even better!
