Hi! I am very new to this MC detox and would very much to give this program a try. I understand that there are three main ingredients that are required. a) organic lemon, b)organic grade b maple syrup and c) filtered water.

I am from malaysia and it is very difficult to get organic food here. especially lemon and grade b maple syrup. is there any substitution? and can i use R.O. water (reverse osmosis water) instead of filtered water. is there any difference between filtered water and purified water?

Please help. I want to start the program but difficult to get the ingredients.

Here’s a link to a post I made about not having to be perfect to benefit from the master cleanse

I am not interested in loosing weight (BMI 19.5) but want to detox my body. I am 45 yrs old and just a bit worried that after the minimum 10 days detox I will look haggard in my face because I will loose too much. How is this? Will the little sagging belly (fat) go away, too? And: Some people tell me that I will have a strong body odour because of the toxins getting out of my body. Any experience with that? Thanks!
