To successfully do a cleanse you must not eat anything!!!
You must drink this drink for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
You can drink this any time you feel hungry.
You must drink at least 40 ounces of the master cleanse a day. Most recipes recommend 60 ounces a day.
During the day drink plenty of water.
You should drink your body weight in ounces each day.
Do NOT drink any coffee, soda, caffeine, or alcohol.
Expectable beverages include water, decaffeinated tea without sugar, 100% fruit juice, broth, and any drink that is all natural with NO sugar added. Many dieters use laxative tea to help aid in the release of toxins.
The whole idea of cleansing your body is to give your digestive track a break. By giving your body a break from processing food it allows your body the chance to rid itself of toxins.
Human bodies are not meant to constantly digest food. Our bodies need down time to deal with the plethora of junk we ingest.
The master cleanse can be done for as few or as many days as you feel you can commit to.
I do it for three days every six months. Many experts recommend ten days. I've even read of a man that did the cleanse for one hundred days.
The master cleanse helps you rid your body of toxins and helps you lose weight.
My husband once did it for a week and lost ten pounds.Afterwards he became really aware of the amounts of needless food he was ingesting.
Results may vary. If you are not a healthy individual please consult your doctor before trying this diet. Releasing too many toxins at once can make you ill.
With any diet the key to success is your own commitment. Pump yourself up a couple days before you begin the cleanse.
You should be excited about committing to cleanse you body. This is beneficial for your body, your mind, and truly your life.
Exiting the cleanse is also an important step. To continue the benefits of the cleanse you must not jump back into junk food. Ease back into food by choosing non processed options. Eating slowly while paying attention to your serving amounts can help you become more conscience about how you treat your insides.
Always drink plenty of water for it is the elixir of life whether you are cleansing or not.
The master cleanse is NOT a cure all of the unhealthy choices we make on a daily bases. However, I do find the occasional reboot beneficial to my entire system.
By letting my tummy shrink up I can actually feel full. It is impossible to feel full when you are constantly stretching your tummy with meal after meal after meal after meal.
