Day One - Mind Games

This is going to be short and will, probably, contain no pictures for your fancy little eyes.It happens. I have a special guest in town and I don't want to be rude.

The point of this is; I am attempting to complete The Master Cleanse. I wanted to give a little insight every day to let you know how I'm holding out. So. Here it is.

I haven't strayed from the lemonade concoction. Neat.
I'm not really hungry physically per-se but mentally it has been a little tricky.
The lemonade is pretty good and I think the cayenne in it helps numb my insides properly so I don't feel like I'm starving to death.

From what I understand, the first two days are supposed to be the hardest to get through. I will admit that at this point ten days is seeming like a hot minute but I'm going to do my best to stay on track.

Any and all positive vibes of strength and good tidings sent my way are much appreciated.

One day down. Nine to go.


  1. I did a fresh orange juice/water/cayenne cleanse last summer - so it's not as extreme as yours - but I will say that the hardest part of the hunger is that it got hard to sleep around the 6th day. Your body is so tired, but I was very sensitive to sounds, etc. that kept me awake. The 3rd and 4th days were the hardest for me. Around the 7th, if I stood up too quickly, I fell over. I did 8 days, but I had no appetite for the 2 days following. Good luck.

  2. Thanks for the support and insight, Brad. I'm looking forward to finding out what's in store for me in days to come.
