master cleanse. FINISHED.

So i finished the master cleanse last Sunday. and it was the best feeling ever to eat again... I just spent a few days eating grapes and fresh OJ. I ended it being 144. But as soon as you go off it and start eating solids again the weight just piles back on. I'm now at 150.5. I feel like it was just a complete waste of 10 days of my life. But I also feel like i could have come off it better, eating less etc, so its kinda made me want to repeat the process again. but better.

Now i'm depressed that i'm 150. and i have the metabolism of like errrr.. a fat person. I dno someone with a really shit metabolism. that's now me. I feel like if i'd never done the MC I would've lost the same just restricting but it would've actually stayed off. Now i just feel shit.

I have a ball to go to on the 14th June. I bought a size 8 dress off asos (no size 10s left and they're not getting any more stock), and it just doesn't fit me. it zips half way up and then its like naaaaah not budging from here. Gutted. I really want to keep it because it looks so good, but i need to lose a lot before it zips up and i'm not sure if i'll do it in time.

I was flicking through old fb pictures earlier and my mate pointed out a picture of me last year and was like oh my god. you look so thin here, like you're legs/shoulders/face/everything look good. that was when i was doing atkins, and eating high calorie - just meat and veg and mayo all the time.

I don't know what to do. I've got exams at the moment so going back on the master cleanse is definitely not ideal. But i NEED to get down to 133 by 14th June. NEED TO. Or at least get down to 140.

I've fucked up my body so much with dieting. I want my metabolism back.  heeeeeeeeeeeelp!

Day 7

I'm on day 7, today i was 147 - a pound up from yesterday! Whenever i do the salt water flush I seem to stall or gain a pound I think. It's happened on all 3 occasions when I did it, and as soon as i stopped doing it i dropped 3 lbs. I think I need to get some lax tea to use instead.

So I think I have enough maple to last me up until the morning of day 10. And now in my head I'm thinking I have 2 choices... to buy another bottle and keep doing the MC till day 12/13. Or to just have less maple syrup. I'm already having way less than is recommended.. it's supposed to be 2 tbsp in each glass, but i use 1 (smaller) tbsp cause I got freaked out that on the 2nd day I was drinking more calories than i was eating before the master cleanse. So now I have about 150/200 cals a day through about 4 drinks.

They say the master cleanse is a 10 day process, but easing out is very slow or you get severe pains. So Day 11 I have to drink watered down orange juice, Day 2 is juice and some broth... basically 1 vege stock cube and Day 3 is raw fruit and veg.

I'm really hoping I get down to 143 by the end of this process. Which leaves me 10 pounds towards my first goal weight...! (if the MC weight doesn't go back on).

Does anyone have any tips and food that's low cal and raises metabolism? cause my metabolisms going to be pretty much non existent when I come off this and start eating more than 200 calories a day.

Day 5.

Woah, so yesterday was redic. I woke up and couldn't even bring myself to get out of bed for 2 hours, I just had zero energy. When I got up I chased 2 drinks which made me feel a lot better until about 4pm when I got the complete shakes and had to go home and get back into bed.

The annoying this about this diet is you sometimes wake up with energy, and then during the afternoon it just disapears, so you end up being really unproductive. and then at midnight, you get into bed and you have fuck loads of energy and don't get to sleep until like 4... it's really getting annoying.

Annnnnyyyywaaaayyyyzzzz, i'm down to 147.5. I stopped doing the salt water flushes because 1. they're rank. and 2. they made me stall on my weight loss for 3 days which really made me consider quitting the master cleanse. I'll do one on the final day though just to clear all the toxins and stuff from my body.

Day 3.

So that last 2 days have been pretty slow. I've stuck to the master cleanse, doing a salt water flush in the mornings and drinking the 'lemonade' in the day. I'm at 150.5 today. So i've lost around 3 pounds.

I have 8 more full days, including today to go. It's honestly so tough. In my head I feel like I can do it, and keep doing it until i'm at 140, and then slowly introduce the soup diet until July - so hopefully I can be around 130-35 by then. But deep down i dont think my willpowers going to last this long. These 2 days have been the slowest of my life, not because i'm hungry - because I haven't felt hungry once, but because this diet is making me wake up stupidly early, and go to bed stupidly late, and give me major crashes so I don't have energy until late at night. I haven't worked out in a week, I really need to!

How's everyone doing? Hope you're all well!

Always here

The Master Cleanse.


I started today. Weighing in at 152.6. All I've had today is 4 of the master cleanse drinks (you're supposed to have 6 minimum but I wasn't hungry and was busy!). But I've had a fuck load of water and some peppermint tea aswell. I'm going to bed feeling pretty satisfied, not hungry at all.

I'm really excited to see what happens tomorrow. I really need you guys at the moment, I'm pretty sure the next 9 days are going to be the worst. And I'm really determined to finish it, I'm just not sure if i'll have this same willpower when i'm starving in a few days.

love love x

So far so good. I'm down to 153, so 3 pounds. Im still at home so couldn't get out of eating dinner, we just had veg and prawn stir fry though. I put it into myfitnesspal and it came up as only 150! As well as that I've had a tall soya latte and an apple. All in all about 400/450 calories for today.

I was messing around with a BMI calculator and found out I need to be around 133-135 lbs to be underweight for my height.. for some reason I thought i'd be less cause i'm really tall.

I go away for the whole summer in 91 days. I was just wondering how much weight loss you guys think I might be able to lose by then? I'm following a strict diet of no more than 500 calories a day, yet will be eating around 350 or less most days. And I have a gym right around the corner so will be going at least 3/4 times a week doing a lot of cardio and ab/arm work.

I really just want to keep motivated and get to at least 133 by July. If i can get down to 126 that would be absolutely amazing!!

Let's just hope this isn't all talk and I can actually keep up with the targets I'm setting!! Anyone out there doing something similar and what to make some similar weight loss targets? Would be great to do this with someone :)

My fitness pal

Okay. I've decided to start using myfitnesspal but publishing it on my blog. That way both what I'm eating and the weight I'm losing can be see by others... and hopefully the embarrassment of that will get me back on track.

I haven't decided when I'm doing the master cleanse yet, it all depends on when I go back to uni.

Think thin guys. x
