Group Cleanse Support Topic: Social Support from Family and Friends

This page is a Support Topic Page for The Social Support from Family and Friends for our Master Cleanse Group Cleanse. Please check that page for details on our Quarterly Cleanses and our Individual Cleanses.

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.

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?

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.

If you haven’t yet, go ahead and register for the Group Cleanse to get our “Guided Cleanse Experience” email sequence timed to correspond with your registration and the important days as the come up during our scheduled group cleanses.

    Is anyone starting up? I’m starting tomorrow.

    I concur with Shawn not to tell anyone that I’m on the purified, aside from other people who do the scrub. I’ve seen my family members separate and cry when I disclose to them that I won’t eat for ten days. This is one of the reason I’m beginning the gathering quick on Monday if so I can impart to different chemicals which are similarly invested, individuals!

    Hi! I’m wanting to go on this cleanse, but feel like I need medical advice. I am a thin woman with a low BMI of 18%. I definitely feel the need to cleanse because I am feeling sluggish in digestion, I’m chronically constipated and I have trouble sleeping/ fatigue/ the symptoms that you need to cleanse! I’ve only ever fasted on kitchari or very light food but never fully on just lemonade.Would love advice/ support!

  4. Dhanya sree

    I have started just now…I think this is gonna be a great experience for me!!!

  5. Yawn Bankoff

    I agree with Shawn to not tell anybody that I’m on the cleanse except for others who do the cleanse. I’ve seen my relatives break down and cry when I explain to them that I won’t be eating for 10 days. This is one of the reasons I’m starting the group fast on Monday if so I can share with other cleansers who are like-minded people!

    Well it is the end of day 10 and I am going to keep going for 5 more. I would go longer but have to go off as I will have company and won’t be able to continue during the visit.
    I plan to go right back on when I am alone again- 10 days later.
    Is it bad to start up again that soon?

  7. Missy

    Does drinking more lemonade daily help you lose weight faster? Or should you just be drinking when you are hungry?

  8. Missy

    Is anyone else in the beginning phase? I am on day 2 and would love to have someone to buddy up with to stay motivated.

  9. Jacky

    Good luck to everyone doing the cleanse.

  10. Shawn MCcoy

    Today is day 16 of a 21 day fast.I’ve lost 14 pounds so far. I had some health issues this past winter and felt that this would help remedy them. I’ve been doing the Master Cleanse for 21 + years. 4 times a year at the changing of each season. I started doing the cleanse for weight loss and discovered so many more benefits. I don’t tell just anyone what I’m doing because most people do not understand and I like to avoid the negative energy. I have had pretty much every experience good and bad that you can have during a cleanse. ‘

      Hi Shawn,

      Congrats on your dedication!! I just started today and it’s tolerable lol. I’ve heard of the great benefits of this cleanse and I’ve seen them on friends and family. I’m excited about this and wanted to know how you get through cravings? Did you also work out? Good luck!
