Day Five on this Master Cleanse!  Yippee!

Interestingly, this has been the week that my students wanted to talk about food: what cool food have they found in New York City; what food do they miss from their country; where can you get the best hamburger in New York City; what interesting food have you eaten this week; what is your favorite dish, etc. and so forth.

I have found this interesting in that my stomach has done the requisite call-outs, and I have thought about eating, but, each time, I have just as quickly forgotten about that mouth-watering information I have heard.

Today, I came home with  a serious jones for some kind of food. I went to the blender and blended up some more “lemonade”.  Case closed.  I think that is so cool.  I am not really hungry – it  is all in my head each time.

Today, I woke up sneezing big time. It was “serial sneezing”!  Then I felt slow all morning, and I got another sneezing fit.  Could be I am catching a cold, or it could have been some kind of “healing crisis”.  Whatever… (I’ll carry some Alka Seltzer Plus tomorrow, in case it continues)  Right now I feel okay.  I did have a sneezing fit right after I made up the last batch of lemonade – I think I must have touched my nose with a finger right after I put the cayenne into the blender.

So, what have I been doing during my Master Cleanse? Ha ha! I have been looking at other raw food websites and blogs!  I have been reading recipes there.  I have also been editing/proofreading/formatting two recipe books.

Is that hard? I just asked myself that question this afternoon.  No, it is not difficult, because I am fasting and I know I am, and I know I am not hungry.  Still, I know the end will come soon, and I will be able to eat solid food again.  Then, I will try a few of the recipes I have seen

  2. Hi Like you, I am on the master cleanse, day six. I have not been hungry, however i am ready for some food with taste. even if it is some juices, i just want some variety. How long do you plan to be on the cleanse? today is my last day, I will introduce juices tomorrow. I feel great and not bloated. Oh one other question did you use the maple syrup or raw sugar cane juice? I wanted to use the raw sugar cane juice, however, I live in NY and i could not find it anywhere!!! Take Care

    I am going to continue for the minimum 10 days as recommended. I might go on longer if I feel like it at day 10 (I’ve got a feeling that won’t happen since I’ve started planning what to drink on day 11 and what to eat on day 12, and then what to eat when I first can. I’m planning to make some sauerkraut next weekend, and I may well put some crackers or bread in the dehydrator over the weekend.
    I had some cravings on day 3, but I quelled them by reading recipe books (I know it sounds strange, but it works for me)
