The Master Cleanse and Weight Loss

by Raylen on June 15, 2009

The most common questions I get on this blog are about the master cleanse and weight loss so I thought I would take a minute and answer some of those today. If the master cleanse is something you would like to try I would encourage you to sign up for my free newsletter at the bottom of this post, when you do I’ll email you a free guide for doing the master cleanse.

I was going through these blogs. Suddenly a question came in my mind…I want to try MC specifically for the weight loss..but one of the blogs says that it is temporary.we really need to work out to loose it a reality that the weight loss is temporary in this case as i am not fatty i just want to loose weight from hip and the waist line as i have developed flabs….so please help.


While you can lose a significant amount of weight on the master cleanse, and keep most of it off (you’ll gain back some water weight) the real weight loss benefits come after you finish the master cleanse. Most people will find that they no longer consume as much food as they did prior to the master cleanse, and the food they do crave is usually much healthier.

Here’s some more info on losing weight after the master cleanse

Next we have a reader who wants to accomplish the opposite. They want to know how to do the master cleanse without losing weight:

I am interested in the cleanse for removal of toxins and NOT for weight. loss. I have always been thin with a high metabolism. I don’t want to lose wt. is the master cleanse still for me? I am worried about doing it for 10 days straight, not only for convenience factors but because my metabolism is unusual and i don’t want to lose weight or wind up feeling faint, etc., especially when I’m working.

This is a good question that doesn’t get talked about much. Here’s a post I made that will help you do the master cleanse without losing too much weight

I started the MC yesterday and today is my second day. Instead of the non iodized salt, I am using 3x Bamboo salt. I find it easier and it has great benefits, easier to swallow than the regular Celtic salt. I took 8oz of water and 1 tsp of the bamboo salt both yesterday and today morning. I have done several research in the past and for a very long time I cook and drink a ying yang water every morning with this bamboo salt.

The reason I am doing this is because I have seen tremendous fatigue, constant bloating, toe fungus, you name I have it…
All these did not result from bad eating habit… I have cheated with the wrong food a times but seldom. All these mishaps resulted from multiple antibiotics and all kinds of meds I took in the last year as a result of two open surgery.

So my question to you is; is Bamboo salt okay as far as utilizing during the MC process?

Also, I had tried this MC before and gave up on the 3 rd day because of the cravings. I am committed to be strong this time around. How has everyone made it pass the day 3?

I understand that doing the MC is all about knowledge and not will power but in this case I could use some moral support. My main objective here is just to clean out all the bad bacteria that has secured a place in my body and once this is cleansed, I can start my keybiotics with a key focus of great nutrition.

Your feedback would be appreciated.
