Days 7 & 8 of the 10-10-10 cleanse…

First, I want to apologize for not posting an update yesterday on day 7. I did do a Periscope video if you’re curious about how I was feeling and my progress so far. Check it out below..

And today is day 8…

And I’m drinking orange juice.

Yes, my friends, I have officially decided to end the Master Cleanse portion of this cleanse. I had been debating this for awhile now and I finally just made the move to stop drinking the lemonade. Honestly, the reason why I decided to stop was because I was getting very, very bored with the lemonade. And the thought of having to drink one more glass literally repulsed me. Seriously.

I went to Target today and while I was there I was starting to feel dizzy. I think it’s because I didn’t drink enough of the lemonade today but like I said earlier, it was because I was just getting tired of it. I know that’s probably one of the detox symptoms but I didn’t care. I feel that 7 days of not eating anything was good enough, at least for now. I will definitely do the cleanse again… probably some time in January.

I learned a few things during this round that I thought I’d share:

  • Sometimes the emotional detox will be harder than the physical detox symptoms.
  • You will feel tired and moody almost every day on the cleanse.
  • Your skin will go through cycles of looking great and looking horrible at the same time.
  • The best time of day is bedtime.
  • Your mind becomes sharper and clearer each day you are on the cleanse.
  • You eventually realize how much of our focus and daily lives revolve around food and beverage related things.
  • Orange juice tastes really, really, wonderful after 7 days of not eating.

If you’re interested in seeing the actual protocol that Stanley Burroughs lays out, pick up a copy of the book The Master Cleanser. It explains all the details of the cleanse and what it does for the body.

Overall, I’m happy with my progress on this round. I will continue to transition back into eating over the next two days. It will probably be veggie broth tomorrow and then it will be all raw for as long as I can do it. So stay tuned for tomorrow’s update and I’ll let you know how I feel and what, if anything, I’m eating.

Score some good karma and SHARE this! :-)
