    i've been reading about the master cleanse diet on other sites...is it safe to do? i don't know if i'll be able to go the full 10 days on nothing but spicy lemon juice, but i'm willing to try it. Has anyone done it? Did it work??

    Hi,

    I can't answer whether the Master Cleanse is safe or not. I thought it was when I did it obviously or I wouldn't have done it! I can tell you this. I wanted to cleanse my body of all the "junk" and wanted to start over with a cleaned out system ready to start eating healthier. Iinitially I just wanted to do it for the 10 days, but when I got to the 10th day I decided to try for the 30 day maximum. I made it to day 23 felt fine physically but felt mentally starved. The first 2 days was hard but when I set my mind to continue it was easy. I am considering doing it again but now that I am in nursing school and understand a little more about health and illness I want to research first about possible negative effects of the Master Cleanse. I would suggest you do the same.

    Bottom line was I lost 21 lbs in 23 days; didn't follow my intention to eat healthy after that and gained all but 8 lbs back, but unless I see something somewhere about really negative effects of doing this cleanse I will opt to do it again!
