Hey all.
So after reading about all the benefits of doing a cleanse I decided to do one. The method is there but I was wondering if I really needed to do all the berries and green juices they suggest. Could I get by with just protein shakes and vitamins? It seems the diet is mostly liquid anyway. =\

i don't think a total cleanse is needed, just make sure you eat foods that help the digestive tract clean, like drinking a lot of water, eating a lot of fiber, and taking in a lot of anti-oxidants whenever you can. also acai pills are scams.
It is strange to think, I haven't seen you since a month. I have seen the new moon, but not you. I have seen sunsets and sunrises, but nothing of your beautiful face. The pieces of my broken heart are so small that they could be passed through the eye of a needle. I miss you like the sun misses the flower; like the sun misses the flower in the depths of winter. Instead of beauty to direct its light to, the heart hardens like the frozen world your absence has banished me to.

The point of a cleanse is essentially to "reset" your digestive and immune functions, and of course, to lose weight. Basically, it works because you're barely eating anything and you become "thinner" simply because you're low on water weight.

To be effective, you need the feed yourself the right kind of nutrients to flush out toxins from your body. To be safe, you shouldn't do a cleanse for longer than 2-3 days.

The most basic cleanse I know of is mixing lemon juice, maple syrup, and water. There are different varieties, but to me, these kinds of cleanses are more like fasting than healthy dieting.

Cleanses aren't meant as a long-term solution for weight loss. They're best used as a pre-cursor to starting a weight loss program or diet, as a general boost to your immune or digestive system, or in a pinch such as when you're trying to dry out and look cut right before a con.

If you're doing a cleanse, stick to the ingredients that you're told work (and that you can withstand for the time you spend fasting) - otherwise, it's not a cleanse but a protein meal.
