The Master Cleanse - En route!

Thanks to a new friend & colleague, I have made the decision to do The Master Cleanse. She finished hers about a week ago, and when I saw her on her 10th day, she looked fantastic, her skin glowed, and she spoke highly of it. One of my dear friends, Nadia, was also a huge influence on me since she lives such a healthy life, she glows, (inside & out) and she has definitely rubbed off on me through the years of cooking beautiful meals for me, and speaking to me about what she knows best: health & good food. What a gift.

This is a short description of this cleanse:

Stanley Burroughs (author of The Master Cleanse) and other authors say that The Master Cleanse will eliminate toxins (pesticides, hormones, prescription drugs, chemical fertilizers, heavy metals) and congestion that have built up in the body. For people in good health, the body is designed to eliminate normal everyday toxins from itself through the lungs, kidneys, liver, and other eliminator organs. Supporters of the Master Cleanse have credited it with helping them lose weight, increase energy, and even alleviate some chronic diseases.

My reasons / goals for this cleanse:
  • Improve health
  • Eat healthier
  • Improve sleep (eliminate loud snoring!)
  • Reduce alcohol to weekends (ok, and sometimes Thursdays)
  • Maintain ideal weight of 130 lbs
Join me on my journey? You could send me some encouragement, but please, no mention of the "F" word. :o)

  1. I love you so much baby!! I know you can do this because you have the inner strength and willpower. Maxine and I miss you and can't wait to see you on Sunday night. With each day passing I know you'll feel better and better. I know that this will be our year, the year of the Rioux-Savic's.
    Good night my babydoll!! LOVE Robert

  2. Don't know why the original comment I wrote didn't post (maybe I didn't click on post? or maybe I dreamed that I wrote it? So, here's my second attempt!! Congrats on starting your blog...I look forward to reading all about Sylvie's World!! Also, I'm impressed at your self-discipline and determination for attempting the master cleanse. Keep busy and time will pass faster!! Good luck!

  3. Great idea to document this, cherie! I tried the MC and didn't even make it to day 3! So you are very brave and I wish you the best. I'm sure that you'll kick sweet toxin-free butt with it!
