Master Cleanse Day 1

Starting Weight: 211

Here's what the drink is made of:
1 cup fresh-squeezed lemon juice (like 4 lemons)
1 cup organic maple syrup
1 tsp cayenne pepper
11 cups water

1 cup of salt water before bed

Well Day 1 is in the books. The drink really doesn't taste as bad as I thought. I figured the cayenne pepper would make it taste like a burrito, and while it does add a little spice, it's not overpowering. The maple syrup goes well with the lemons. It's definitely drinkable.

You would think my sister sending me pictures of this would rattle me. I really haven't had the urge to eat today as bad as I thought. I passed a Wendy's tonight and I looked down on it with disdain. I know it's the first day, but I'm feeling confident about this. I've gone days without eating before. I just have to stick to my mantra, "mind over meal". So far, so good.

Also I gotta find a better way to juice the lemons. That shit sucks.

The rest of my suffering can be seen under the Master Cleanse Diet Project header on the left side of the page.


  1. omg!!!! grosssss!!!!! lol!!

  2. il teach you how to juice lemons

  3. So, idk if I wanna burst your bubble, but I just read an article, and it says grade B maple syrup has no sugar, and you cant use grade A or it will negate the effects of the cleanse...but yeah, hope it works!!! lol

  4. all maple syrup has sugar. the grades correspond to the different times within the season when syrups are produced.

    if your caught up in the grade of maple syrup your missing the point of this experiment

  5. it looks like its lacking some celery...
