Master Cleanse Journal: End of Day One

I’m doing the Master Cleanse and I thought I would keep an update on here, and hopefully show people whether or not it is a good idea.

It is October 14th, 2008 and I have just embarked on a journey for a healthier lifestyle.  After years of being overweight and not being able to get the weight down I decided to try the cleanse.  Lose weight and clean out the inside.   Win-win situation it looks like!  I will be keeping the update here, as often as there is some news to update on.

Okay then, let me break down the first day.

Last night:

 I drank the herbal tea.  Its a laxative tea that takes about 6-8 hours to work. 

This morning:

I drank the 32 ounces of saltwater, which really is a laxative as well.  The saltwater works quicker.  My mistake was drinking it ice cold!  Not the best idea.   The weather here is cold, especially in the mornings, so it just made me even colder.  Tomorrow I am going to try it warm like it is recommended.  

Lemonade Time:

I had a great time making the lemonade.  Squeezing my own juice,  and putting all the ingredients together.  Afterwards my hands reaked of that familiar lemon smell.  Yummy!   A little piece of advice: if you have any wounds (cuts, burns etc..) on your hands or anywhere the juice can touch it will burn!   Anyway I digress…

The lemonade does not taste all that horrible.  For certain it is not something one would drink on a normal basis.  The cayenne pepper gives it a bit of a kick and burns the throat and tongue.  The warmer it is the hotter the pepper becomes.

How have I felt on day one?

I have felt alright, honestly.  No bad side effects, despite hunger.  I have not had any cravings for solid food.  I had more energy.  I only hope the rest of the days go pretty good as well.

Results?

Yes, and to me it is unbelieveable!  I got on the scale and weighed 10 pounds less.  In ONE day!   

Want to know more about the Master Cleanse?  I suggest you search the net for information about it.  First you can check out my article that gives some background information and other helpful hints about it!

    To make it different, I will start a novel,

    continuously added to about a writer, writing, having

    among his problems the incessant need to lose want to

    lose, weight. And I will dedicate it to you. Yes, good
