This is something I plan starting May 1st, I don't know how well it will work but we'll see. I find it easier to start this sort of stuff at the beginning of the month rather than the middle which is why I'm waiting. If you try this before I do, lemme know how well it worked for you!


Cleanse
Days 1-3, fast. Drink lots of water, water with lemon, herbal tea (caffeine free), diluted non-citrus fruit juice (I like grape and cranberry. They taste the best watered down. 1/2 juice 1/2 water).
Avoid stressful situations and strenuous exercise. I eat dinner on the third day due to passing out one time. You will be irritable and exhausted by the third day.

Days 4-8, You can eat non-citrus fruits, brown rice and vegetables. I usually steam my veggies or sometimes saute them in a little olive oil.
This gets kind of boring so mix up your veggie choices. After a few days of this you can do light exercise such as walking for 30 min.

Days 9-14, Add chicken and fish to the diet you are already on. Grilled or steamed is best. Using different spices can help with the boring.
After a few days of this you can increase your exercise.

After this you can add dairy and other things back into your diet but be smart about how much. By this time smaller portions should fill you up. The more things you add to your diet the less you should have of others. (ie; once you add the chicken and fish you should only be eating maybe half of the amount of brown rice you were before.) You will feel better and have more energy. Not need to sleep in as long, etc.
As a side note, try not to start this process when you have celebrations or special occasions coming up. These things make it hard to stay on track.

This sounds terrible. Anything that makes you "You will be irritable and exhausted by the third day" is really not something I or anyone should want to try.

This is a bad idea. You need a cleanse the same way you need to run your car without gas and oil.

NO thank you.
Small deficit and exercise is all you need to do.
It is just that simple.

Oh nooooooooooooooooo.

"I eat dinner on the third day due to passing out one day."

Anything with that kind of side effect, I do only under medical supervision.

Your aunt is making some really poor diet decisions.
April 4, 2013 2:52 PM
I'm amazed that people think this works
April 4, 2013 2:52 PM
Why doesn't your aunt like you?

Anything that will make you pass out sounds like it's probably a bad idea

Why? Helluva way to clean out the fridge.
April 4, 2013 3:02 PM
You may like to try this type of approach..moderate deficit of calories and get in some exercise...or go with passing out...? Woot?

I'm sorry your aunt doesn't like you. flowerforyou

There are many successful people on MFP who have lost weight and kept it off without following such malarkey. Just check out the success stories section of the site. Many who are generally friendly and can provide you with solid information to help you along the way. Drop one of them a note if you can. smile
