Master Cleanse: Halfway Mark!

June 29, 2006

Today was the best day of the cleanse I’ve had so far. No hunger. Plenty of energy. The sea water didn’t make me nearly as nauseated as it usually does and I’m halfway done at day five. :-D Oddly enough, even though I wasn’t hungry, I still craved…well.. not food, but beer. Not just any beer, either. My favorite beer: Guinness.

Weird, I know. Kev thinks it must be carb cravings, but I don’t think it is. I’ve already been there with the toast and pasta and rice cravings on days two and three. I think it’s simpler than nutrition cravings, I think I just wanted a cold Guinness on a hot day. Either way, there is one waiting patiently in the fridge for me for when I’m done with the cleanse.

So far I’ve only had five servings of the limeade, but we ended up going to see a movie tonight (more on that in another post). I only brought one serving for the theater, so I’m having my sixth serving right now. We had a voucher for a free small popcorn, so Kev used it tonight and I didn’t even want a bite while he was eating it. Not wanting food is kinda cool, yet kinda freaky. Though, I’m sure I’ll get over that in about five days or so. ;-)

Their advertisment says Guiness is good for you. That may not be factual but I’ll take it as a truth. Would certainly make a good reward when the cleanse is all done.

hello! i found you through a fellow vegan’s site. i’m considering doing the master cleanse soon, so i’m following your progess with rapt attention. thanks for sharing it!

just in case you weren’t aware, guinness isn’t considered a vegan beer. if you know and have decided to drink it anyway, cool — just wanted to give you a head’s up in case you’re drinking something you don’t want to be! (but i want it! but i don’t! but i want it! hehe. ;)

thanks again for sharing, i’ll be interested to hear your post-cleanse thoughts and whatnot. peace!

Hi Lyndsey, thanks for stopping by! Glad you found something of interest in my blog and I hope it helps you when (if?) you start your cleanse. Be sure and contact me personally if you have any questions.

::gasp:: Guinness… not… vegan? Oh CRAP. That is about the biggest bummer I’ve heard all year.

Well, I guess I will have to give it up. Veganism, after all, is a life style, not a diet.

I’ll have to say goodbye properly, of course..
