The Master Cleanse Is: Not What You Think It Is

The Master Cleanse is most commonly sought out for, and used for it's ability to create fast weight loss. Especially by first newbie cleansers. But anyone who reads the texts, websites, and communities dedicated to the ideas present in the discussions surrounding the topic of The Master Cleanse and Lemonade Diet can tell you it's much more than just fast weight loss and spicy lemonade.

Master Cleanse Ideas:

In my experience with The Master Cleanse (having cleansed 5 times), and through founding of this website, I have found the central ideas of The Master Cleanse to focus on the topics or “channels” listed below.

  1. Fast Weight Loss
  2. Cleansing Detox Diet
  3. Eating Healthy
  4. Holistic Healing
  5. Self Care
  6. Personal Development

Fast Weight Loss

This topic focuses on weight loss, and fasting, not necessarily “Quick” weight loss, although with The Master Cleanse weight loss does occur rather quickly. Losing weight and being fit through diets, and exercise. We'll explore not only fast and healthy weight loss, but how what is our ideal weight and how to we can achieve it and maintain it.

Cleansing Detox

Any diet or process that provides a cleansing or detox effect, removing “toxins” from our bodies, food, water, environment and lives. The process of eliminating and preventing toxins through a diet, or otherwise. Detoxing food, water, air, homes our minds.

Eating Healthy

The Master Cleanse itself is an act of “healthy eating”. It's a mono-diet of nutrient and vitamin rich foods in liquid form. Although no “chewing” occurs, we definitely still eat, or consume food. But this topic focus on the expansion from juicing, to blending, raw foods, and general healthy eating practices.

Holistic Health

This topic focuses on weight loss, and fasting, not necessarily “Quick” weight loss, although with The Master Cleanse weight loss does occur rather quickly.

Self Care

Taking personal Accountability for managing their own health using tools and services to track, understand and inform them on realities of their body/health condition. Screening, and Prevention

Personal Development

Personal development is the process of challenging oneself to grow in life-skills including: productivity, time management, education, self help, self talk and so much more.

We'll continue to review the people, places, products and services that are leading the different ideas of what The Master Cleanse is, while presenting our own take on the issues, and perhaps most importantly, providing a platform for the community to cultivate, and curate these ideas into a useable resource for everyone interested in informing themselves.

  1. Mike,
    I’m a little worried because I haven’t been hungry. I’ve been drinking four to six glasses per day, but this is forced when ever I think I should be eating. Today is the morning of day 3 and I havent had a drink since yesterday at 3 pm. I’m not hungry and feel alright. I’ve never had any problems with weight loss or body image or anything like that, so this isn’t a psychological issue as far as I can tell. I mean, real food when I see it on Tv or smell it in the street really gets me going, but I haven’t felt actually hungry. Should I trust that feeling and not drink lemonade? Or will I be short changing myself of the benefits of the cleanse is I drink less than 6 glasses per day?
