  • Ultra, sounds like you're doing great! I'm in the middle of day 5 today and so far have been feeling great. I just miss chewing a lot, but am definitely satisfied by all the delicious juices! I'm going to start to incorporate avocado and blended ban…
  • glad to have you on board Michelle! It's the beginning of day 3. I just finished making my juices for the day as I'll have to bring them to work with me. I work in a restaurant so this will be my first big challenge with smelling all the food all ni…
  • Bajan, a juice feast is a great way to set the "reset" button on your system. If done for a longer period of time, it can refresh your tastebuds and flush out your system. Juicing is a great way to get instant access to all the nutrients your body n…
  • I've sort of decided to up my commitment by doing a juice cleanse for 10 days. Nothing but fresh fruit and veggie juices and water. I'll probably do a laxative tea at night to help the cleansing process along. Anyone else interested in joining me? I…
  • I find that a diet high in fruits really helps me when I am working out heavily or being really active. Don't worry about the protein. If you eat enough of your dark greens and a variety of fruits and vegetables you should be fine. It's a different …
  • I completely agree blueyz! I always find myself getting off track when I get stressed. So far so good on the cleanse. I started adding in green smoothies today because I wanted to have a little easter treat! After next week I'll start working in who…
  • It's hard to tell lisa. People respond to cleansing very differently. I'd say that most people experience detox symptoms that include headaches, tiredness, and sluggishness. These don't really seem to mesh with soccer, however, there may also be day…
  • hey joannabanana and all others! today I finished day one of the MC. I hope you are doing well on your path to spring cleaning. Not such a bad day except I had to keep myself really busy to stay out of the kitchen and get food off the brain. I also …
  • joanna so great to have you on board! Yes I definitely understand the wrath of mothers on holidays! I'm going to go for a full 10 days and shoot for 14 but depending on how I feel I may just stop at 10. I would love to have you along for as long as …
  • hey rawdance!! So good to have you back!
  • I was thinking the master cleanse, but could be open to incorporating some green smoothies (I don't have a juicer or else I would do full on juice feast). I've done the mc before and made it 10 days and loved the results. It is quite a challenge tho…

  • I absolutely LOVE the GREEN BAGS!!! They are amazing and my produce never goes bad before I get to it now! They sell them at whole foods...get them now! They will change the way you think of produce!
  • That's great emeraldgem!! I would love to keep eachother posted on our progress! any support is really important on the cleanse.
  • Thanks KathrynL. I checked it out and it seems great. How long are you going on this cleanse?
  • Hi kthornton! Congrats on beginning this new chapter of your life! Sushi is a tricky issue I think. A lot of raw foodists, if I may be so bold to assume, usually came to raw food through a vegan lifestyle. I think that is why most do not consume raw…

  • thank you so much bluedolfin! I most certainly will post an ad and hopefully something will pop up!
  • Thanks bluedolfin....I would love to do juicing, but don't have a juicer. How much nutritional value would I lose by just blending instead? I've always wondered about the benefits of juicing vs. blending
  • thanks lauren1982! I’ll definitly look into it. Any other suggestions?
  • It’s Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing
  • I have definitly struggled with eating disorders in the past as well. I came to raw foods in an effort to re-establish a positive relationship with food. I still struggle with binging and restricting but am hoping to move to a more positive place in…
  • rachel hahaha! that’s hilarious. I definitly know the feeling of not being able to take it. I really want to make the full 14 days this time! I hope you all will cheer me on when i want to quit! I have really bad mental control issues when it comes …
  • I. ruckeryeah I’ve heard about people having really bad times coming off and the risk involved. I did this cleanse before so I knew how my body would react so I wasn’t afraid, but I was mostly just disappointed to be starting at square one tomorrow!…
  • I have terrible news! On today day five of my cleanse, I broke it bc I had a meeting with my two bosses and they asked me out for lunch for a three month evaluation for a raise. Ugh! I didn’t do terrible…I ate a great and healthy raw salad, but my s…
  • It’s so wonderful to come and read this after a really rough day on the cleanse! Wow I was thinking about salads all day! All different types of them and how much I wanted to feel their deliciousness in my mouth. Ugh. I did manage to get down some h…
  • today is day one! I’m so excited and ready for this master cleanse! I’m going to try for 18 days this time but might only go 14 depending on how it’s going. I bought some natural iron supplements yesterday to accompany me on my journey this time. Ho…
  • OldDogNewTricks: my boyfriend is such an unhealthy eater too! But I’ve definitly decided to let him observe my eating habits and become inspired on his own terms rather than lecture him on how much damage he is doing. It’s difficult when the ones yo…
  • Ok people! I am starting my second master cleanse on Sunday and am going to go for 14-18 days depending on how it goes. I’m really super excited about doing the cleanse again. I loooved it when I first did it for 10 days. I did however have a really…
