What happened to day one? I’ll tell you what happened — it was yesterday, and I didn’t feel like posting 😉
A friend of mine has often recommended the master cleanse diet to me whenever I spoke of getting rid of the last bit of fat that always gives me trouble when I am at my lowest body-fat percentage. Low for me has been 11-14%, and while I can begin to see the outline of my abs, I don’t have a 6 pack.
After discussing the idea, I agreed to do the master cleanse diet with guidance. The guidance I received was a bit different than what I had been reading about the master cleanse diet online, and didn’t fit in with my vegan diet. So, I modified it a bit. The guidance that I received recommended one whey protein smoothie per day to minimize muscle loss. I’m using soy protein instead. Buying lemon juice from the store was also suggested. I decided to go out and buy a juicer and drink fresh juice instead. I’m lucky to live close to work and be able to come home for lunchjuice. I was very lucky to have found a juicer on my first day at my nearest thrift store. This juicer only cost me 4 dollars.
Day 1 Went like this :
Morning – Called in sick, maybe a combination of a bad cold and allergies. The pollen count is really high, and I was exposed to some allergens (cat-house) over the weekend which seems to have really set me off. Hard to tel if I have a bad cold or bad allergies. Is this really a good way to start ?
Weighed in at 188 Lbs.
12:00PM 1 cup of pasturized apple cider. (~100 cal)
3:00 1 cup of pasturized apple cider (~100 cal)
5:30 1 large cup of lemon juice and maple syrup (200 cal) + 2x455MG capsules of cayenne pepper
6:30 1 soy protein shake (20g of protein) (190 cal) + 2x455MG capsules of cayenne pepper
8:00, 1 pint of so delicious coconut ice cream (600 cal)
The pint was my cheat item for “easing into” the diet on the first day.
So I had a grand total of 1190 calories on day one.
Day two (today)
Feeling a bit better than yesterday.
1st thing in the morning, weighed in at 185.5 Lbs.
7:30 1 cup of lemon juice and maple syrup (200 cal) + 2x455MG capsules of cayenne pepper
12:00 1 large cup of lemon juice and maple syrup (200 cal) + 2x455MG capsules of cayenne pepper
12:30 1 soy protein shake (20g of protein) (190 cal) + 2x455MG capsules of cayenne pepper
12:45 Smoothe Move organic Tea
2:00PM (Really feeling tired/slow at work) 1 sweetened black tea (200cal)
5:30PM 1 large cup of lemon, celery, mango juice (220 cal) + 2x455MG capsules of cayenne pepper
So here I am. I don’t feel hungry, or malnourished. I do however, still feel sick with a headcold. I worked the day away, and felt a bit less productive than normal. I can’t seem to find any reliable sources online that say juice fasting is a good idea with a cold. Perhaps I will end the fast after the third day. Any thoughts?
