Day 3 of MC

Hello friends. It is day 3 of the Master Cleanse and I am getting sick. This morning I woke up with a sore throat, bad headache and slightly nauseous. I called in sick today. It's 12 pm now and I am feeling a lot better. I have just been laying in bed and drinking my juice all morning. When I finally felt good enough to get up I made some Smooth Move. There is still stuff coming out by the way. Ew.

My husband asked me to stop this cleanse today. He doesn't like when I get sick and he knows that normally when I feel like this I start passing out and throwing up. He worries about me when I am at home alone because we have no friends here so he doesn't want anything to happen to me. He's so sweet. So I am starting the Ease Out process this afternoon. I could go until day 10 though! It is true what they say, the first two days are hardest. I am not even hungry today, which is weird for me because I LOVE eating.

My husband couldn't find any organic orange juice so the best he found was Simply Orange. I am mixing it half with water. They say that if you drink too much and don't water it down you will get a headache. I am still drinking my lemon mixture as well as my Smooth Move morning and night. Tomorrow is Orange Juice, Lemon Juice and Vegetable Broth only. Just so that you all know, aside from feeling sick, my body feels great! 


  1. Gosh, just hearing about your troubles makes my heart ache....I feel for you.

  2. What does it mean to say your body feels great besides being sick? That doesn't make sense!

    Thanks for sharing your story, Carissa - I look forward to seeing some good eats again soon!

  3. Vegan Tickles- Thank you :) You are sweet

    Jess- Haha, it's hard to explain. My body feels clean inside. It feels less toxic...if that explains it at all.

    Shen- Haha, I think it was invented in the 70's. My mom said that juicing for fasts and detoxes was very popular back then!

  4. :-( I'm so sorry that you are feeling sick. I'm glad that the cleanse has been working though. Hope you feel better soon!

  5. Im sorry your sick! That's no fun, we were sick here last week - and I think my husband is going to get it again... or something similar anyways. We dont have any friends where we live either... sigh. It sticks, I totally understand those feelings.
    I tried to do the MC once before and now I cant even gargle salt water because it makes me gag. haha. I should try it again now that im officially vegan! Get all the rest of the crap out of me!
    You gave me a bit of motivation! Thank you!

  6. Even if you didn't make it to day 10, I'm sure you've gotten rid of a lot of toxins. Good job!

    Hope your sick day turns into a feeling good day! I know what you mean about feeling good in a "cleaned-out" sort of way.

  7. i hope you feel better soon!! and thanks for sharing your journey. i hope you don't start passing out! that's very scary when you're by yourself. :( :(

  8. Michelle- Thanks Michelle, I am much better today!

    Rebecca- I am glad I am not the only one with no friends in my area. I am so happy you are vegan now! You can do it!!! And I am glad to be an inspiration. You are sweet :)

    Molly- Thanks I'm feeling better today!

    Rose-I think so. I know it would have been better if I went longer, but at least I got rid of some of the toxins. I'm glad you know what I mean:)

    Kim- Thanks Kim I made it without passing out!
