Fast Or Cleanse

This Sparked Me!

I will do a liquid fast for 2 or 3 days or a Shake Cleanse for 3 days to break a plateau and 'start over'. I typically lose an average of 4 pounds and feel like NEW.

MORE INFORMATION:
My liquid fast entails no solid foods. My particular cleanse uses specific items - both liquid and solid.

    EVAKOZ...with the liquid fast, I just drink liquids for 2 or 3 days, no solids. I do take my vitamins, but basically, I drink water, herbal teas, broth and juice. On occasion I have drank protein smoothies, but I try to stick with just liquids (not blended solids/liquids).

    I am so gonna try this as well as up my exercise to see if I can break this. Thanks for the tip - so very helpful. I have been on a plateau for 2 weeks now and don't want it to go to week 3! :( I could not understand why I reached a Plateau so soon. I have lost 18 pounds to date and have some more to lose. I hope to reach my goal by the end of the year, averaging a loss of 2 pounds per week, which is what I did for my first 18 pounds. I'll keep on going because this is the last time that I am ever going to weigh this much!!!!! :). emoticon emoticon

    I wish I could get in the mindset to try that for 3 days. I have done so before and you are right, it does work.
