So, skinny...you bought the web book off of Jayrobb.com and followed it? Was there anything magical to be found in the book that would make it worth buying, or would following a typical 3 day fruit and protein fast be the same?

I did a 3-day cleanse that I got out of a health magazine. It basically consisted of whey protein shakes, fruits & raw veggies emoticon emoticon

I didn't do it to lose weight, but to feel better and cleanse my system, but....guess what?? I lost 4 lbs in 3 days.....what a great (and unexpected) "fringe benefit" emoticon

DH and I are getting ready to do the Master Cleanse. There's a team here on Spark People that I joined that goes by that name. Some people don't like the MC, but it has been around for a long time. It is good to understand that it is not supposed to be to lose weight, but rather more to cleanse all the impurities out of your system. Most people I have read about having done the MC have actually lost weight, but overall they feel a whole lot better!

It is 10 days (I think some people vary the time) of drinking a mixture of lemon juice, pure/distilled water, maple syrup and small amounts of cayenne pepper. It is recommended that you follow this cleanse with a raw food diet, whcih DH and I plan to do.

Has anyone here ever tried the Master Cleanse?

I'm just saying... Kelley

Thanks for all the info.

I will have to do some more research and figure out which one is best for me and will help me accomplish what I am trying to accomplish.

Thanks again!

I agree with Eternal Mother which is why I stick with food cleanses (when I do them) that include God grown fruits and Veggies alone with protein powder. It's a fat flush, too.

But yeah, if you are healthy it's cool. Always check with your doctor before doing anything too crazy. There's a lot of weird trendy and chemical laden stuff (b.s.) out there

I'm only as strong as the coffee I drink and the hair spray I use...

There are some fantastic internal cleanse products out there. You have to decide what kind of a cleanse you want to do. Most start with clean eating or raw foods and the internal cleanse. You can do a juice fast or a water fast with your cleanse but they are much harder to do.

Get lots of information and be sure about what you are doing. Ask lots of questions and if you feel something isn't going well or right ASK.

Hi there,

I'm a big fan of cleanses that are sane and healthy. We have addressed this topic before. (note there is a new feature on each page that allows you to search previous posts. You could key in, flush, or cleanse and something would come up. there is lots of great stuff out here)

I like Jayrobb.com. It's fruit veggies and protein shakes. doesn't get any more cleaner than that and you feel fantastic!!! And it's just 3 days!

I'm only as strong as the coffee I drink and the hair spray I use...

I'm trying "Colonix" right now. I am over a month into it now, (doing a two month cycle), and so far so good.

I will let you know how it turns out.

I think this would help me get started Eating Clean!

I have heard many pros and cons about doing internal cleanses. I still “think” that I would like to do one. Just to clean out my system.

I would like to hear anyone’s experience with doing a cleanse and what products they used and without going into gross details how did the experience go for them. Did you feel better or worse afterwards, was it worth it, etc.
