I hesitate talking about this because I'm afraid of not being able to do it. That is precisely why I'm telling you about it. Last night, at the recommendation of the Nutrionist I've been working with, I started The Master Cleanse. It is a detox plan that I will be doing for the next 10 days. It cleans you out...literally.
Every night you drink a laxative tea, and then in the morning you guzzle 32 ozs of water with sea salt in it. then several times a day, you actually drink this concoction of spring water, maple syrup, fresh squeezed lemon juice and cayenne pepper. oh, if you need a snack...mint tea. that's it. that's all i can eat/drink for the next 10 days.
It is meant predominantly to detox your system and clean all of the nasty things your body accumulates over the years. I've always wanted to do one. Weight loss is the secondary effect, obviously! I'm not eating anything! When I googling around looking for testimonials and what not, I found out that Beyonce used this 10 day diet to lose weight for her role in Dreamgirls. She lost 22 pounds in 10 days! holy cow! So here i am, out there, I'm going to do this. I will complete it and I'll walk you through the journey, minus the gorry details. You can email me personally if you are thinking about doing it and I'll let you in on how it all works.
