I have one friend who announced that she made it 25 days on a different type of cleanse, and wanted to make it to 30. But hers sounded so drastic....something about "existing" on lemon juice, cayenne pepper, maple syrup and some other key ingredients. It sounded like starvation to me!
What's your opinion about cleanses?
I agree they don't really cleanse, but they are good exactly the way you used it. Break you of a sweet tooth habit, get you motivated and moving in a direction. I don't think a few days will harm, but the longer ones potentially will and won't serve you long term.
Mama to 13, and 10 and 4.
I did a system cleanse last summer after my first round of my diet.
I bought a kit at the health food store. I'd say it definitely worked because I was pretty much living in the bathroom for a few days. The only other one I've done is a liver cleanse which I do for 1 day periodically but I don't drink stuff or only eat fruit. I just take the supplements!
