Master Cleanse Day 10—Eureka!

Posted By on Tue, Jul 24, 2007 at 9:56 AM

Today is the last day of my Master Cleanse (see previous posts on the experience below), and right now I feel terrific. The quick breakdown of my experience: Days 1 through 3, I felt sluggish and irritable, though nothing too extreme; days 4 through 6, I felt better, still a little tired; days 7 through today (10), I'm feeling great. I haven't really experienced any serious hunger while doing it, and I've definitely lost weight, though still haven't weighed myself.

Interestingly, I have no real excitement about breaking the diet. I figured I'd be ready to dig into a bacon cheeseburger soon, or a Nola's chivito, but I'm not craving anything like that, and could easily see going another 10 days on the regimen. (Going 20 days is not uncommon, and Master Cleanse proponents claim you can do this for up to 40 days safely.)

We'll see if my experience mirrors that of Scene music editor Tracy Moore, who says her whole relationship with food changed as a result of doing the Master Cleanse. I'll report back in a week or two.
