I know some of you have been wondering where I have been for almost two weeks. Well... Bob went on the Master Cleanse for 10 days starting on the 2nd of March. I decided to tag along.
Now, as I have said before, the idea of going without solid food and drinking only juices does not even remotely appeal to me. But I thought it couldn't hurt to get a bit of a cleaning out. Bob blogged about his experience at Bob's Legal Lemon. I, on the other hand, dropped off the face of the Earth. (Well... the face of my blogs, anyway!) Bob is still blogging there through Monday. He's keeping people in the know about what happens once you transition back to solid food.
Why didn't I blog about my experience? Well... I knew that for me it would not be pleasant, and I simply did not want to dwell on it. I had very strong detox symptoms and to say I got a good cleaning out would be an understatement. However, I also nibbled on raw almonds now and then to slow the detox symptoms down. I did not need to sleep as much as I normally do, which is what most people that juice report. I didn't, however, experience the bouncing off the walls energy that they experienced. Would I do it again? Yep. Probably. But not until later in the year. I could not wait to start eating solid meals again, but now I find I crave the Master Cleanse Lemonade, with less cayenne! Therefore I have decided that I will be drinking that from time to time instead of a meal. Probably first thing in the morning. Just trying to keep a bit of clarity!!! [grin]
