While it sounds like a fad diet, “Master Cleanse” has been around for more than 50 years, initially developed to treat ulcers. Will you lose weight on “Master Cleanse”? Sure. Beyoncé lost weight and you likely would, too. The problem, as with most detox plans and other fad diets, is that you’ll regain the weight when you stop detoxing. And you can’t stay on “Master Cleanse” forever without running the risk of doing real harm to yourself. Other detox plans are perhaps less extreme by including fruits and vegetables, along with a lot of juice. It’s no surprise that detox diets have a celebrity following, either. Gwyneth Paltrow, Oprah, and Bill Clinton have all jumped on the detox bandwagon at one point or another.
There are different detox regimens, some harsher than others. Most of them are very-low-calorie liquid diets. Some detox plans aim to clean you out with the use of fiber supplements, enemas, or herbal teas that act as laxatives. And some plans have you fast for a few days, after which you gradually add back food. There’s no shortage of detox plans, either, so you can take your pick. Just Google “detox diet.” Or, check yourself into a spa and get pampered while you purge your system of bad things (of course, be prepared to pay a hefty sum, too.).

I stopped the insulin because my sugars would drop too low if I took it. … My doctor told me to forget the insulin and keep doing what I’m doing.

Author Sidebar: Back when I was diabetic, my endocrinologist told me that a cleanse and detox would not help me with my diabetes. When I asked him why, he couldn’t give me a good answer. So, I did some research and decided to try a raw juice and green smoothie detox. Let me tell you something — I don’t want to get too graphic, but, after I drank a couple of green smoothies and went to the bathroom, I felt like I dropped 20 pounds! 🙂
