Day 8. Feel'n Gr8 - No Food. (scroll down for TT)

- Day 6 (with no food on The Master Cleanser), was the hardest for me, but it's over. Moving on.

- Day 7, I finally lost the desire to eat, cravings for everything junk subsided, and I had all my energy back (from the previous oopsie of too little maple syrup). I even had a super duper workout *yippee*

- Day 8, seriously feeling marvie. It really is key to prepare your mind, body, soul and spirit for this challenge. Sitting in front of the TV all day watching commercials that advertise crap food all day long is not a good idea. Nor is it a good idea to have your significant other hanging out in the kitchen cooking aromatic delights such as bacon and eggs while you drink your meal. The smell alone will send you into a slight state of homicidal madness irritability.

The only weirdness lurking is some joint pain in one knee (which never hurt before), which is normal with the detox and has already disappeared. I Also had a pain in my side (no joints there I don't think) where I cracked a rib years ago (from coughing). I know. I'm an odd duck.

Overall, my state of being is overwhelmingly peaceful and at ease. The desires to slit my next-door neighbor's tires have flown away. My body is getting back into shape and losing 11 pounds of water weight has been fantastico (yep, that's right). Good-bye Michelin Woman. (It is common to lose up to 20 lbs. if your body needs the loss.)

Go here to see the entire process (including benefits and vitamin-mineral content) on one page.

That's all.

I'm sorry about the joint pain. And should I say, homicidal madness? Hehehe. But really, I hope everything will be better tomorrow. Hang in there.

I'm on a diet, too--it's been 4 days--but I haven't lost anything...

And, now it's 11.47pm in my country and am starving :D

I'd love to lose 20 pounds, but I'm sure I couldn't do it this way. Have a great day. :)

You know I give you a lot of credit for doing this.
For health reasons I would have to be monitored through something like this I am sure.
Nice to know you don't want to kill the neighbor anymore though, trust me not worth the trouble. ;)

Chuck, I NEED to lose 20 pounds, but stop with the fasting already!! Also I'm sorry I hurt your sides even more making you laugh at my "Computer Upgrade" post. LOL!

It sounds like you are doing great! A hard way to loose weight I think. The health of detox is supposed to be good but I don't know if I could do it. You are almost there...You ROCK!

Bonnie said...

That feeling of being at peace and at ease- I so need that! I don't think I am strong enough to do this detox but I adore you for doing it!

MamaGeek said...

HRH said...

pretty cool stuff. I admire you for doing it, because I am way to lazy to try.

jenn said...

11 pounds? That's great! I still don't think I'd have your dedication. I'd have been eating by day 2!

Melanie said...

I wish I had the willpower to try this. I could stand to lose some weight, for sure.

storyteller said...

Wow … fasting! I don’t think I could do that ever, but I’m impressed at you doing this thing. Hang in there … the end is in sight.
Hugs and blessings,

What did I miss?? Why arent you eating? If its to lose weight, that is the worst thing you can do because once you start eating, your body with retrain twice the fat because it thinks you're gonna starve it again. Your body need nourishment to keep it going. Please eat...
