As promised, here is a report on my first day of the Master Cleanse which I introduced you all to yesterday.
I’m hungry. But not as hungry as I was expecting. When I get a hunger pang, I just juice a lemon, add the syrup, cayenne and water and my hunger just goes away for about three hours. It is actually quite disturbing. What I can say about the main drink concoction itself is that it doesn’t taste bad. Not at all. It mainly tastes like slightly less sweetened lemonade with a bit of heat. Except when you get a big chunk of cayenne and your lips burst into flames.
I did start to space out and get a bit loopy in the late afternoon, but I was at work soooo that’s about normal.
The part of the regimen that is really unpleasant is the salt water flush. As a gay man, I’ve tasted my share of salty things, but nothing compares to a liter of salt water that you chug. The last gulp is the worst because you actually taste the salt. Then when the water decides to makes its way out…its not pretty. I may choose not to do this part again. Some information I’ve read suggests that you can replace it with other more pleasant ways of cleaning out your digestive tract.
Check back tomorrow for more exciting news about my cleanse! I know you are all waiting impatiently!
