I’ll get right to the point:
I attempted to do the Master Cleanse.
A terrible, terrible idea. I thought it would make me feel great to have a good cleanse. The idea is you drink a concoction comprised of fresh lemon juice, maple syrup, distilled water, and cayenne pepper for 7-10 days. Yes, it’s very extreme, but I had done some research and spoken to many people who had done it and the common theme was that you feel incredible after doing it.
Day one was a success, but I was so crabby and tired it was ridiculous. The work day was okay, but once I was home, it was all downhill. I had BAD, BAD thoughts toward Dr. Stanley Burroughs, the creator of the cleanse. I wish I could’ve reached the stage of enlightenment that I had hoped for, instead I celebrated the next day with a bag of M&M’s and a peanut butter brownie.
