Hi, it's been a long time but here I am again. I had a rough, VERY rough 2011 and I feel like it's time to just re-center... I cannot start right now but maybe on Thursday the 12th, I have some lunch dates planned. I have been doing medifast and lost 43 lbs but I don't feel it's as healthy as it claims, (it's 5 "meals" of prepackaged food and one "lean and green" meal per day), my objection is the pre-packaged nature of the food and also it runs over $300 per month. It just doesn't seem ok to me and since I just lost my job the cost is not going to work for me. Anyway, I always love Master Cleanse and I am looking at posts on the forum and I feel like it's time... I love this forum, it's so helpful and informative. The weight loss is awesome but the major benefit to cleansing to me is the mental clarity it brings.
