So...I am attempting, key word attempting to start the master cleanse tomorrow. I tried it once before when I was not vegan yet and addicted to coffee. After not even a day, I got an extremely bad migraine. I am thinking it may have been my body going into withdrawal over coffee. Needless to say, I didn't even last a day. It's embarrassing really. I am hoping that now that I am vegan, my body won't go into a super withdrawal. Also, I don't like lemonade. Pray for me guys, pray for me. If any of you have done the cleanse with success any tips or encouragement would be great! I will try to update you as I go. That is...if I go...I especially need tips on getting the salt water down in the morning. For those of you not familiar with the cleanse, here it is in short:
In the morning: Down 1 liter of water with 2 teaspoons of unionized salt water.
Throughout the day: Drink your lemonade mixture every time you feel hungry. The recipe is the following-- 2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice, 2 Tbsp grade B maple syrup, 1/10 tsp cayenne pepper & 8 ounces pure water.
At night: Drink a laxative tea like Smooth Move. You may also "cheat" and drink an herbal non-caffeinated tea as well. Just to change it up.
