So you finished the Master Cleanse, and you’re wondering where do I go from here? Here’s a few tips on what to do after the master cleanse.
How you break a long fast is extremely important. You need to gradually ease your way back to solid food after having completed a couple of extra days of juices. You need to come of the Master Cleanse properly. Here is a schedule that works.
Days One and Two After Your Cleanse
Drink several glasses of fresh orange juice (8 oz) throughout the day. The orange juice will prepare the digestive tract to be able to once again properly digest and assimilate solid foods. Don’t gulp it — drink it nice and slow. If you have any difficulties during the transition increase the amount of water.
During the afternoon of day two prepare yourself some vegetable broth. This should not be canned soup that’s full of preservatives, rather make yourself some fresh homemade soup.
Days Three and Four
Drink orange juice in the morning, for lunch eat raw fruit, and at night eat fruit and/or vegetable salad. No eggs, fish, meat, pastries, bread, milk, tea, or coffee. Milk causes mucus and creates toxins in the body, and it’s known to cause problems in the stomach and colon…
You are ready to start eating normally again. This will be your first day of a regular breakfast with solids. You should have your glass of lemon and eat fruit, vegetables, berries, or seeds for breakfast — nothing else. If you have gas or other digestive distress go back to day two and repeat days two, three, and four. You may have to do this a few times until your digestive tract is ready to process solid food again.
It’s highly recommended that you begin to take Probiotics after breaking the cleanse. This will replace the good bacteria that was removed when you cleansed the colon. The good bacteria keeps the gut balanced and it also produces Vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, B12, and K. Don’t take the Probiotics while you cleanse. They’ll just get pulled out of your body.
During your cleanse is the time to start to retrain your brain about your eating habits. You’ve got a fresh slate, why not take advantage of it, and begin to live a healthier life, and what you eat is the place to start.
First of all, you should eliminate all processed, refined, and fast foods from your diet. Justify them how you like but the bottom line is that they are not good for you.
Increase the amount of fresh fruit and vegetables you eat. You should have a minimum of 5 servings a day.
- Replace all white flour products with whole wheat
- Restrict your salt intake
- Eat lean protein
- Limit your dairy intake
- Drink plenty of water
- No soda and other sweetened drinks. Remember the juice on the shelf isn’t much better than soda. You want fresh squeezed juices.
Eating a healthy diet will provide your body with the nutrients it needs to stay healthy. It also means that your body will be able to better hold toxins at bay. Eating healthy will also help keep the weight you lost off.
Coming off the master cleanse just takes a few days. Follow these steps and you’ll be set.
