Goodbye Master Cleanse! Hello Probiotic Course and Intense Green Juice!

Day 10 came and went of a perfectly executed master cleanse (OK, maybe I missed a couple of the salt water flushes – gaack!) – and so it’s time to break the fast. (And that sausage, egg and cheese omlette that you’ve been craving is not the best idea!)

After 10 days of nothing but water, lemon juice, maple syrup and cayenne pepper your body needs to ease back into solid foods. In the past, I’ve found the best method is to start with a course of probiotics that will repopulate your gut with healthy bacteria – setting you on a good digestive course. Juices, light soups can accompany this and help you ease back into solid, complex foods.

I decided to begin with a High C + wheat grass mega juice and accompanying probiotic (each of these little shots contains 50bn bacteria and I’ll take one a day for 6 days..)

After such a period of caloric restriction it doesn’t take much and after half hour later the juice is making me feel energized and amped… I survived the Master Cleanse! Time to blast into the day, and then to Mindshare LA tonight 😉

  • Congratulations on completing the cleanse. There was a This American Life Episode in the last few months that documented a writer’s experience doing something similar.

    Two months into my more/less alcohol-free journey I experienced some unique moments. Wicked papular acne developed in strange places (the top of my forehead, my chest, a forearm, a fingertip). Evidently, the skin is the body’s largest excretory organ.

  • I applaud your success with the cleanse and am glad you didn’t end up like Kelly on The Office: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P5LUKEulsno

    Have fun easing back to solids!

    • haha, thanks Cristina – easing back into real food slowly but surely… (and

      that piece of carrot cake i hid in the fridge is waiting VERY patiently!)
