There are some really common errors that you need to understand before you do the Master Cleanse diet. While these errors are easy to make you need to appreciate that you can avoid them with great ease.
Of course the more you do the master cleanse the more you are going to understand exactly what you need to do and ultimately you will be able to weed out all the issues that are causing problems.
Most of the mistakes that people make with the master cleanse have to do mainly with the preparation that needs to be carried out with the ingredients, materials and equipment etc.
There is no doubt that you will make a few mistakes here and there but believe me that is okay because every time you make a mistake you have the opportunity to learn something new.
Those of you that have done a few Master cleanses before should jump down into the comments and share your experiences with the newcomers to this site! This way more and more people will be able to get better and better results.
Believe me the mistakes that I’m going to describe below are really common but if you take the time to read through them then there is less of a chance that you will end up making one of them.
Mistake Number 1: Believing The Misconceptions About The Master Cleanse Diet
Trust me there are many misconceptions out there in regards to the Master Cleanse diet but the fact is that most of these are unfounded… and often started up by people who have no clue about how the human body actually works.
Believe me there are tons of rumors and misconceptions about virtually everything out there.
And the best way to sift through what is actually fact and what is fiction is to begin to educate yourself.
Believe me, getting on the master cleanse will really be an amazing way to really find out the facts and the fiction in regards to health and what will help you get into the best health of your life.
I really believe that this master cleanse detox is a really great opportunity to actually learn all there is to know about the ways that our bodies really and truly work, and how best to get them to work in the best way possible.
Trust me I’ve been on all the forums and Facebook fan pages and seen how there are literally tons of people out there that actually get on this lemonade diet within just minutes of seeing how it works and what the whole process involves.
To have the best chance of success on this whole process it is essential that you take the time to really get out there and understand the whole master cleanse system and what it will actually do to your body.
Mistake Number 2: Appreciating Your Cravings
Believe me my friend you need to sit down and really appreciate all the different cravings that you may experience during the cleansing process. Yes it is human nature to want to eat and when you get the feeling of hunger you will want to do nothing but put some food down your mouth.
But of course you need to understand that just because you feel hungry doesn’t mean it is a literal life or death situation. A lot of the times the cravings we have for food are more psychological than anything else.
The older we get the more we begin to associate different types of foods to different situations. So over time you care less about the food but more about the feeling that you associate with the foods you eat.
So often times you will find yourself doing whatever you do in any given day and suddenly a situation occurs and you will feel extremely hungry.
But trust me most of the hunger pangs you feel are directly down to psychological issues. However when the time comes when you are really hungry you should never ignore it.
The more days that pass on the cleanse the clearer the picture will be on exactly when you are feeling really hungry or when you are hungry for various different psychological reasons.
There are some really incredible resources out there that will help you to understand and appreciate the different cravings you have for food and how to create a better more meaningful relationship with that food.
Here are some of the books you should check out in regards to cravings:
1. Constant Craving by Doreen Virtue
2. Women Food and God by Gennen Roth
2. Women Food and God by Gennen Roth
The second book is really great in that the author actually goes back to the basics where she makes the point that how you eat is in direction relation to the way you live your life.
Yes, as controversial as it may sound what and how you happen to eat reflects the kind of person you actually are and what your opinions on love, anger, fear and even religion are.
Mistake Number 3: Buying Bad Quality Maple Syrup
Please for goodness sake never cheap out or be lazy in the ingredients that you purchase. Buying the best quality maple syrup is really important. If you are not bothered to mess about with all the ingredients that go into the lemon juice then I’d recommend that you get yourself some lemonade diet pills.
If you are planning on using all the natural ingredients then you need to ensure that you get the darkest possible Maple Syrup that you can get your hands on. Seriously the results you get will be profound so please do your best to get out there and find highest quality maple syrup you can afford.
The darker it is the more nutrients you will find in it.
The fresher the maple syrup the more nutrients you will find in it.
You can of course do more reading on this if you wish.
Mistake Number 4: Not Stocking Enough Lemons Or Maple Syrup
Yes, this often happens as it did with me the very first time I did my cleanse. So you need to make an effort to get yourself really organized.
The best thing to do is to stock up on the organic lemons for a few days at a time. If you unfortunately do run out of lemons then just stick to drinking the drink with just maple syrup.
If you happen to run out of both the maple syrup and the lemons then I’d recommend that you find some sort of alternative… perhaps honey.
But of course this is a temporary measure… so you really need to get out there and stock up on supplies.
Mistake 5: Eating Solid Foods During The Cleanse
Believe me if you are planning to cheat then you may as well not bother to start… because you will not get good results if you eat solid foods during your cleanse.
Once you give in and start to eat one thing it will quickly move onto the next and before you know it you will end up gorging on a massive pile of junk foods.
Yes, the cleanse is not easy at times but there is one trick that may help out during the times you are feeling a little more peckish than usual. Try adding a little maple syrup to your laxative tea in the evening. It will help to curb your hunger pangs.
Herbal tea is of course allowed on the cleanse so this will be a great way to keep the hunger at bay.
If you are feeling even more hungry and are on the verge of giving up… try drinking a glass of freshly squeezed orange juice. But be sure to drink a lot of water with it.
Mistake Number 6: Not Doing The Salt Water Flush Consistently
Getting the toxins out of your system is just the first part of the process you need to get your bowels moving to get them all out of your body. You need to make your bowels move every single day of the cleanse for optimal results.
The best time to do it is of course in the morning. So from the moment you wake up just mix up the salt water flush and drink it.
Don’t even think about it… just do it!
Mistake Number 7: Not Easing Out Of The Cleanse Properly
You haven’t had food for at least 10 days if not more, so it really isn’t a good idea to start gorging on food immediately when you are ready to break out of the cleanse.
That is a sure fire way to cause serious health issues, so please avoid that at all costs.
The best thing to do it take it slowly by easing out of the cleanse one day at a time. So begin by eating fruit and then eating soup and then start eating a few solids.
Another tip is to ensure that you are getting in enough water into your system as you are easing back into eating solid foods again.
So there you have it all the major mistakes people make in regards to the Master Cleanse… hopefully you will avoid all of them and see great success on your own journey
