In the spirit of returning my messages to the topic of this forum, I wanted to announce that I started the cleanse yesterday. This is my second time doing the cleanse and I did the first one last summer for 22 days. The weather is turning nice and spring is in the air and I decided it's time to do some internal cleaning. I'd like to lose some weight but that is not my reason for doing the mc. I have picked up some food addictions to breads and pasta that led to an unhealthy acid body condition. Taking a couple weeks off from eating food will help reset my system for a return to health eating. When I complete the mc and return to regular feeding I'll be eating 100% raw all summer long...eating only fresh organic fruits and vegetables like I did last summer. I got so healthy and felt great with a lot of energy and I'm sort of bummed that I allowed myself to get off track through the winter. Had I stuck to eating right, I wonder how wonderful I would feel today?? Nevertheless...today is a NEW day and I'm looking forward to the squeaky CLEAN feeling I get from EATING and LIVING right!
