The Master Cleanse

So yesterday was my first day on the Master Cleanse – cheaters style :P

Haha yes, I must say even day one I broke down a little. I read online lots of ways you can cheat, and one website said that raw veggies are fair game. However I saw one blogger who said she would suck on a teaspoon of peanut butter so….

My diet yesterday consisted of 6 servings of the lemonade (eight is the amount you are supposed to drink), lots and LOTS of tea (which is technically a cheat but like, really???), a teaspoon or two of straight maple syrup (it is part of the lemonade and trust me, it has never tasted so good), and probably total a tablespoon of peanut butter.

Today I had more herbal tea, a ½ teaspoon of hummus, another tablespoon and a half maybe of peanut butter, about ½ cup of applesauce (some blogger cheated on an apple and hey, applesauce you don’t even need to chew), three teaspoons of maple syrup…and 6 servings of the lemonade drink. I make the lemonade doubled each time and prefer that.
I also sucked on two toasted pecans. Yup. It’s bad.

The hunger doesn’t get me; in fact the lemonade and tea do wonders for my hunger. It’s just that I obviously love food and am very passionate about it and not being able to eat and taste all the flavors destroys me. I am not sure how I can make the next 8 days without cheating…but I am going to try and cut back. As in maybe 1 teaspoon of peanut butter and ½ cup of applesauce tomorrow? We’ll see. My day tomorrow is pretty busy and nonstop, which is awesome news because then I won’t be thinking about food as much.

I did torture myself today watching a Food Paradise show on doughnuts…but ONLY because Voodoo Doughnuts was on it…


I’ve taken no pictures lately so I figure I’ll keep you entertained. Any myself, because they just look so damn good.

I also began my week of unlimited yoga this week! Had my first class today, yoga and strength. Pretty good, but I must say I prefer straight yoga better. I get to try that tomorrow!

Overall, in many, many ways being back sucks. I am so intensely lonely, and wish i would have car access more so i could visit my friends at OSU and UO. I just really sit around all day watching tv or reading...Life really isn't very enjoyable :/

hopefully i will get a job soon...

bye bye.

  1. I heard the master cleanse is really brutal. There's a book you can read about it here that's suppose to help you do it in a way that makes it easier, but like you said, it wasn't the hunger that got you, rather the missing of tasty foods. I can totally empathize!
