Like an emotional rollercoaster, The Master Cleanse Diet will make you go through emotional ups and downs concerning food. The thought of you ever eating again will always play in your mind.
Then you start to realize that this is untrue, and the depression quickly subsides. Day 8 of the master cleanse is usually one of the hardest days you will experience.
The thought of craving, and the need to eat, is an interesting concept. The nagging thought never cease to cross our minds, but I’m happy to say the emotional turmoil caused by the thought is now at a minimum, and we are least affected. This is the time you realize, your thoughts are merely thoughts, and it’s entirely up to you if you put it into action.
In other words, after The Master Cleanse, we are no longer slaves to our own thoughts. You may think of food from time to time, but you are now on the driver’s seat, and take control. Say goodbye to eating when you’re depressed or out of boredom. A deadly combination you use to practice in the past. It is the reason why most of us are so unhealthy and overweight.
Some of us utterly love food. We like the texture, the taste, and the culture. This, in itself, is not a bad practice, but over-indulgence is. This is how the cycle revolves for most of us.
Most of us, like in most cultures, love to drink. After a night of drinking, we get hungry and the usual choices are oily or fast food. When morning comes, you get a hangover, and again you want oily or fast food, and then the cycle starts all over. Does it surprise you we’re all overweight?
