Today marks the first day of an experiment: I’ve set forth to do The Master Cleanse. Yes, that’s right, for the next 10 days I will be subsisting on a "Lemonade" mixture, replete with Cayenne Pepper. No food. No drinks other than this, water, and mint tea. And no, I haven’t lost my mind; I’ve wanted to do this for a few years so figured it fit in well with my Detox Month (aka, July, in which I’d already committed to no alcohol until BlogHer.)
Lofty goal, I know it. I’m interested to see how I do.
The book (and testimonials from friends who have done this) say that days 2, 3 and 7 are the hardest; the book also says that most people aren’t hungry. So far, so good (though around lunchtime when everyone was doing something, I found myself sitting here and printing out photos on my ‘lunch hour.’ Exciting, I know.) I think I’m going to hit the gym across the street as a daily distraction; I’m overdue to begin my running program.
Anyway, that’s that. I’ll keep ya posted (sans gory details) on my progress, but Internets, wish me luck. You KNOW how much I love food.
Did a 7 day fast this year. Loved it, however it makes you realize the “social” aspect of food. That was the hardest part for me was not being able to eat or drink with friends.
