Things like this make me laugh!

So, can it everyone and answer the question asked. Oh, and my answer is no. I don't do well with cleansing because I just become too hungry to concentrate and binge out.


Lots of crazy concepts make their way onto the forums. It's best to shut them down before uninformed people think it's actually a good idea to follow unhealthy or impractical fads.

Part of My Fitness Pal is the health aspect. When we see things that are UNHEALTHY, you can bet we're going to jump in and challenge it. Whether the poster ASKED for commentary or not. That's just because we care.

MFP: We care.


Hate to say it, but, DUH! What do you want us to do when someone says they're going to try something unhealthy/useless?

"Hey guys! I'm gonna not eat for three weeks and lose an awesome amount of weight! Who wants to join me!?"

Well, they didn't ask if it was healthy or not so I better not say anything! How about no.

But...but...

...what about the pounds of material that builds up on your intestine walls?

...what about the toxins? (Don't ask me which toxins...just ALL TEH TOXINS!!1!1)

...what about the heavy (and not-so-heavy) metals?

I have done the cleanse and in my experience it was actually a good experience, it helped me get back on track, and helped with some issue I had after taking my cruise..

I did the Dr Oz cleanse and have stayed on it for months now. I quit watching him! Cleansed him right off my TV and I feel soooooo much better now.


I hear that works wonders for the mind and body drinker

What exactly are you "cleansing"? Do you not have a working colon, stomach, kidney, or liver?


Usually with Dr. Oz and his latest "fad" it's the cleansing of your wallet.

Yep. I definitely believe a "cleanse" or even a juice fast can clear the body of toxins and help the immune system. To each their own.

I just started this cleanse today, so I am with you. I am using it because I am trying to kick my sugar habit and I think of this a jumpstart. Even if it isn't perfect. If I do this and feel a little lighter, proud of myself, and have spent 3 days sugar free, I am hoping that will be a little motivation to jumpstart better eating. Good luck to you.

Day 1 Dr.Oz cleanse-

Day started with the green tea and lemon wedge. AM smoothie was with raspberries spinach and flax, truly awesome shake.

Afternoon was the green machine kale,pineapple etc , same at 4 pm. The amount was enormous about 2 big glass full. Will need to cut down a little tomorrow. Night is the mango, kale flaxseeds.

Now I am not exagerating I truly do feel an increased energy and clarity.The smoothies have coconut oil, almond butter and almond milk for satiety. One day and I can feel the increased energy from removing processed/cooked food from my diet. I eat grains and dairy i the form of milk and yogurt and removing it today made me individually feel better. Will give a report for tomorrow.

Dr. Oz is a promoter of unproven "medicine" and pseudoscience. Anybody who critically looks into his promotions dismisses them/him.

QUOTE:
The Media Pigasus Award goes to Dr. Mehmet Oz, who has done such a disservice to his TV viewers by promoting quack medical practices that he is now the first person to win a Pigasus two years in a row. Dr. Oz is a Harvard-educated cardiac physician who, through his syndicated TV show, has promoted faith healing, "energy medicine," and other quack theories that have no scientific basis. Oz has appeared on ABC News to give legitimacy to the claims of Brazilian faith healer “John of God,” who uses old carnival tricks to take money from the seriously ill. He's hosted Ayurvedic guru Yogi Cameron on his show to promote nonsense "tongue examination" as a way of diagnosing health problems. This year, he really went off the deep end. In March 2011, Dr. Oz endorsed "psychic" huckster and past Pigasus winner John Edward, who pretends to talk to dead people. Oz even suggested that bereaved families should visit psychic mediums to receive (faked) messages from their dead relatives as a form of grief counseling.

Ever since he has his own platform..I've lost total respect for the man. He has a new 'diet' almost every day. Really dude, get serious and quit trying to sell pills or formulas and focus on a healthy diet and exercise. Oh yea..because people don't want to hear that..they want magic.

I know there are a lot of skeptics about cleansing, as we've all read in this thread. However, if you do a cleanse in a healthy way, its a great way to "reset" your body and ultimately give you a boost in the right direction. Dr. Oz isn't the only one who endorses cleanses, many other nutritionists and drs. recommend them as well.

Please stay on track with your cleanse and ignore the negativity that you have received from your "pals" on this site. I'm new on here, but if there was a way for you to delete the negatives and keep the positives I would definitely do that. We are all supposed to be supporting one another here.

We should be trying to support people with things that have evidence that they work and are healthy methods.
So please explain and provide citations how your body "resets" and I'm willing to change my mind.

I'm not here to argue with people, to prove a point or to push an agenda other than to encourage this person who is trying to be healthy. I'm here for support and to provide it for others, my message was directed toward the person who is doing the cleanse. I am appalled how people attack one another on these message boards.

I've been looking at doing something similar. I've seen his recipes and they seem quite heavily loaded with sugary fruits etc. I'm thinking of switching 2 meals per day to a green smoothie (berries, kale, spinach, flaxseed, soymilk, protein powder etc). His smoothies don't seem to have enough fibrous greens or protein to sustain you especially during exercise. Would love to know how you go though. MY mum did this and said she felt great afterwards.
