Today a reader shared their story about doing the Master Cleanse for 18 days…
So I did the Master Cleanse and I did things they tell you not to do but still lost a pound a day I’m doing the Master Cleanse for 18 days.
Today I’m on day 13.
I have not worked out for the first 10 days and I am now incorporating working out.
The first couple days were the hardest so I ate raw broccoli when I felt like I was gonna die and a whole pickle (only has like 10 calories) and because I’m currently building muscle and didn’t want to lose muscle I drink 1-2 protein shakes a day that have only 100 calories and zero carb and zero sugar and I drink them with water only.
HOWEVER, the reason I think I’ve been able to get away with it and still lose 1-2lbs a day is because the master cleanse requires 12-14 tablespoons of maple syrup which means your consuming about 650 calories a day so your actually NOT STARVING YOURSELF your still getting 650 calories a day.
And since I’m diabetic and didn’t want that much sugar in my system I only do 2 tablespoons of maple syrup with is 200 calories.
And if you factor in my protein shakes which sometimes I only drink 1 that’s 300-400 calories total a day.
So I’m actually taking in less calories then master cleanse calls for.
Blogs, articles, vlogs and comments say not to consume anything during the master cleanse because then you are NOT giving your digestive system a break and there fore not detoxifying your body.
But I’m not on MC or my version of it to detoxify, I’m simply trying to loose weight really fast so I’m taking these extreme measures and its working and iv been loosing fat and keeping muscle on this way.
Also in the beginning I chewed food I wanted and then spit it out it helped keep me sane the first 3 days ? ( they also frown upon this but hey it worked) also I still drink a cup of coffee every morning with 2 Splenda and 1 cream (20cals) and 1 tablespoon of almond milk (zero cals).
