Let us know how it goes if you choose to use the calamansi! Myself and the rest of us would be interested to know: Do I need to stop taking this while detoxing? Also, how much weight should one expect to lose? And as far as weight you can lose, it depends on so many different factors including age, weight, body fat, hormone levels, etc.
Most people lose at least 5 lbs or so on the full 10 days and some 15 or more. Kristine just posted a comment on this thread sharing her experience losing 15 pounds and Blanca losing pounds every day. Make sure when you are done with the diet you springboard into a healthy diet and moderate exercise so you maintain the weight loss!
If my meds will effect me from being able to do this detox. Hi Kristin, excellent and very important question. Both fasting this is a modified juice fast and the large amount of lemons stimulate your liver to detox and also create more enzymes than usual. These enzymes breakdown drugs in your body. What this means is that this diet can make the methadone less effective and mess with the levels in your blood. So to answer your question, unfortunately I would advise against doing this diet.
With methadone in particular, it usually takes quite a while to reach a good, tailored treatment schedule with consistently therapeutic blood levels; this diet could get that all out of whack. If you are still interested I would be cautious and only continue with the blessing and supervision of your prescribing physician. I hope that helps. Sorry to be the messenger of bad news. Limes are good but lemons are considered superior. I would stick with lemons. And absolutely, feel free to use just the saltwater flush without the herbal tea.
If green tea works for you as a laxative than that is fine. If not than use either an herbal laxative or a salt water flush. You want to make sure you are eliminating all the waste and toxins from the walls of your intestines.
This time I started and the first few days it worked the same, I lose lbs a day. I take vitamin injections for stress and energy. Do you think that is what has been causing me not to lose the weight? There are a lot of factors it could be that are really difficult for me to guess about. Or have you gotten smaller and smaller?
If you keep getting smaller you might have hit a sort of plateau where additional weight loss is more stubborn. Good sound sleep is also important. You lose the most fat while in your deep sleep at night. I would suggest brisk walking or light jogging in the morning BEFORE taking any master cleanse solution, on an empty stomach. At this point your body is in a completely fasted state and all its glucose stores are usually burned up what your body burns first.
This means your body is now forced to use FAT for its energy instead. This will help you lose some extra pounds. So that makes sense, I will try the walks in the morning and maybe that will help. Thanks for your help! Im kristine from the phils. Ive tried this diet last year and it did help me a lot!
I learned that my man is womanizing. My friends recommended this diet and it is so amazing! In one month i lose 15 lbs. Im gradualy losing weight while Firming my loose arms and thighs. Im in skinny jeans in a month time! This diet have help me a lot!
Regaining my confidence and having a healthy living. Im sharing this cause i want you to know that this effective. But you have to be patient and you must control yourself from thinking about foods while in this diet. Hi Kristine, Thanks so much for sharing your experience and advice with us.
Today is my 10th day on the lemonade diet. I have not weigh myself yet but I am thinking of doing it for 15days. What do u think. I really want to loose the baby fat. I feel great that I have done up to 10days. Kindly advise if I can proceed to 15daya.
My biggest fear is how to break. Hi Stella, sorry for the delay. Going 15 days will be fine as long as your body is feeling up to it.
Just listen to your body. And make sure you read the bottom of this article to break this juice fast properly. Hello Dr I started this diet today and as I weighed myself tonight … I already lost 2 pounds!! I do have a concern though- after my cleanse is done, will I gain the weight back right away? What do you recommend? My question is, because I have worked out in my past, even when I was in high school I still had a small beer belly and it never seemed to go away will this perhaps get rid of it or make it smaller than what it use to be and can I work out while being on it say Hip Hip Abs?
Hi Christoph, This could definitely help you trim away that extra abdominal fat you are trying to get rid of and yes, you can exercise.
Just make sure you eat a healthier diet once you finish with the detox diet! I am a student and I want to try this diet while in school…Can i also like eat a meal just one while on this diet? Nothing but what the diet describes. Would this be good for a one day fast if you were looking for a quick detox? Especially the day after maybe some overindulgence? Yes, this would be a good one day detox.
Regular fasting is very good for the body… whether a juice fast or just water fasting. Can i use this method and is it safe if i just gave birth 2 months ago? Congratulations on the birth of your new child! Hi, I am interested in being a part of this diet. I hope that it works effectively and I lose the weight I desire.
What I want to know is that I am only obligated to drink the stuff, but nothing else, right? Yes Ashley, this is correct. Besides of course, a laxative of your choosing.
Good luck with your weight loss efforts and make sure to use this detox diet to springboard into a healthier lifestyle of good nutrition and more activity. Hi Rosanna, it would really decrease the positive cleansing and body changes that are taking place. Once you eat food your body starts focusing on digesting and not cleansing anymore. I must commend you for the good work and with your resourceful information on the master cleanse.
I have been on this diet for 6 days and i have lost 12 lbs believe it or not. My question is, can i keep this diet for the next 30 days to hit my goals? Will i deprive my body of important nutrients by doing so? Hi Robert and congratulations on your weight-loss goals! Honestly if this is your first time doing the master cleanse or any type of fast than I would finish this round of the master cleanse for at least 2 weeks to a month and eat a good, lower carbohyrdate, nutrient dense nutrition plan and then go for another round of the master cleanse.
And the second round you can go longer if your body feels up to it. Hope that helps and congrats again on the hard work and success: Can also use this master cleanse as well?. Should i do it for 14 days as well? My weight is Hi Lolly, you can use this cleanse but you may lose some weight.
I would shoot for doing the cleanse for 10 days and if you feel like your body is feeling good and would benefit for a longer period than keep going! This causes you to gain back the weight and sometimes more. Use this diet to lose some weight, feel cleansed and rejuvenated and then start a better nutrition plan and keep going with a healthy lifestyle. Can I use laxatives every night then salt water flush every morning?
Or should I stick with just one? Hope it works for me. Yes, absolutely, this is actually the preferred way to do it according to the creator of the Master Cleanse, Stanley Burroughs. But can I just use the salt water flush for day and night? The herbal laxatives here are kinda pricey. The effects would still be the same right?

I will continue reading your site for more tips! I currently don't have any healthy habits, I don't eat muchor any vegetables or fruits at all and I sleep really late, but as a new year hopefully I can try to become more healthy and follow some of the healthy advice you have on this site. So your site is great! I actually happened to come to your site because I searched for "Korean steamed egg" recipe and found yours haha. And after years of doing cleanses like this prior to my diagnosis and only getting worse off than when I started it was amazing to me to find that I couldn't eat the majority of these foods and rather than helping they were hurting me.
Avocado, Spinach, Strawberries, citrus fruits are all high histamine. I say this as a comment to you and help for anyone who has gone through years of not understanding why when they've lived a "perfect" dietary life they can't improve.
Maybe a cleanse to help folks with this improve their DAO levels. There just aren't many folks out there that have a grasp on this yet and there are so many HI people that have been just left to try to figure it out on our own.

Ben Kim on Jan 07, Vegetables, fruits, and their juices are excellent food choices for an intense, full body cleanse for the following reasons: For most people, vegetables and fruits are extremely easy to digest.
How to Prepare for an Intense, Full Body Cleanse Before beginning, it's ideal to take a week or at least a few days to taper your intake of the following: Coffee Alcohol Salt Sugar and other sweeteners All animal foods, including dairy, eggs, fish, shellfish, chicken, beef, pork, and all other flesh meats These foods put significant strain on your digestive organs, and avoiding them "cold turkey" can sometimes create withdrawal symptoms that are too powerful for some people to tolerate.
Dark green, leafy lettuce romaine, red leaf, green leaf Avocados Tomatoes Cucumbers Celery Carrots Red beets one or two will last a week Zucchini Bell peppers Broccoli Cauliflower Cabbage Asparagus Onions Corn Yukon gold or new potatoes Sweet potatoes or yams Acorn or butternut squash Watermelon Honeydew Cantaloupe Pears Apples Bananas Mangoes Papaya Peaches Plums Nectarines Grapes Coconut Oranges and grapefruit Blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, goji berries, and any other berries that you enjoy Any other fruits or vegetables that you enjoy raw or juiced Clearly, it's best to choose fruits and vegetables that are in season.
It's fine to drink warm or hot water. The Full Body Cleanse Diet Morning Eat any raw, ripe fruits that you desire, along with any combination of lettuce, celery, and avocado, if desired.
