Oh you’re hungry?? Here, just drink this FIRE WATER!
After 4-5 days vegetarian to prepare for the Master Cleanse day 1 is finally here. Woke up feeling pretty good, the book says that if I’m hungry to simply just drink a lemonade drink…. the book sits on a throne of lies. Drank my laxative tea when I woke up, burned my tongue again, I don’t drink coffee so apparently I’m not used to drinking hot drinks. Then after about the recommended hour I made my first “lemonade drink” aka fire water. The organic lemons smelled good, shouldn’t be too bad. It sucks. It sucks bad. It was so hot I couldn’t even finish it. The maple syrup tastes pretty gross mixed with the other ingredients. Not to mention I am not really even a big fan of maple syrup to begin with. I don’t really like sweets much. Only a minimum of 5 more to go!
The second drink I cut back on the cayenne. Also, it did take me a while to choke down the first drink which in turn makes the cayenne steep and the drink gets progressively hotter. So I know now to drink it much faster, within 10 minutes. I want a steak.

I want a burger. Fried chicken. Stuff I don’t even eat I want, I want anything and everything. I don’t think I’m gonna make it. Who actually does this?? I want hibachi, a Whopper, a steak again, Portillos, oh Portillos, fried rice, a tenderloin sandwich, I want hummus and pita. A few times I thought “I can eat right now if I want to, I can just go and eat”. I can’t even keep track of my cravings anymore. I’m sure it’s part mental but I am just so hungry, my stomach has been growling since I woke up until I went to bed. The drinks don’t make my hunger go away. I have no energy, am totally lethargic as well. I ended up drinking 5 drinks, it’s all I could, and really the thought of the last one made me want to vom. I don’t think I’m going to make it guys……
At least I made it past 1/2 day and 1 day which some of you voted for!
Any questions are welcome, nothing is too personal, I am happy to answer any.
