The Master Cleanse – Day 2

Filed under: Uncategorized — iamstepher @ 2:45 pm

After a long week of pigging out in San Francisco and New York, I have decided it is time to cleanse my body of all of these “toxins:.  Not really.  After weeks of eating whatever I wanted I came home feeling like I never want to eat again.  I thought this would be the perfect time to try the Master Cleanse.  I have always wanted to see what the fuss was all about.

I spent yesterday preparing for the detox by only having liquids.  I also snuck in an apple at 4 PM because I literally felt like I was going to pass out.  I generally consume 1,500 calories per day and yesterday I had 400.

This morning I started the actual Cleanse, which will consist of 6 glasses of lemonade (recipe below) and a ton of water.  The other websites say you should do it for at least 10 days and up to 30.  I am realistic and already on the small side so I am shooting for 3 days of nothing but lemonade.  Yesterday was pretty rough so I am not optimistic.  I will update!

Cleanse Lemonade Recipe: Single serving   

  • 2 Tablespoons of organic lemon Juice (about 1/2 a Lemon)
  • 2 Tablespoons of Organic grade B maple syrup (I looked all over for this and ended up going with Organic Grade A Maple Syrup.  Isn’t Grade A better anyway?)
  • 1/10 Teaspoon Cayenne pepper powder (or as much as you can take)
  • Ten ounces of filtered water
