Eating on the Master Cleanse – Does it Mean Starting Over

by Raylen on April 21, 2008

Here’s a question from Debbie about eating on the master cleanse, and if having something to eat means having to start the cleanse all over:

I am on the 5th day of the master cleanse, on the 4th night I was so hungry and weak so I ate something, then on the 5th night I also ate something but I was able able to sleep again.have I screwed up,do I have to start all over again? Can I continue to do the cleanse without starting all over again? thank you- need to know asap!

This is a good question. To start, there’s no reason to be down on yourself over a little slip up. We all have our moments of weakness when we do the Master Cleanse, and sometimes it gets the better of us. As for the effects of eating, it really depends on what you ate. If it was a piece of fruit or some fresh vegetables you should be fine.

However, if you ate a pizza or half a cheese cake, you almost certainly interrupted the cleansing process.

But regardless of what it was, you should put it behind you and keep going forward with the Master Cleanse.

You might also want to try the steps for easing into the Master Cleanse in my Master Cleanse Book if you’re having trouble getting past the first few days of the cleanse. It’s helped a lot of people get past those difficult first days, and adjust their body to the cleanse.
