p.s. how is a dieticians’ opinion fact? is this the same profession that built that food pyramid that i grew up with? i believe they recently revised it. and if i am not mistaken the experts say the cleanse CAN be harmful, not IS harmful. there is sensationalism on both sides of the fence.

wow didn’t know i was so opinionated on this topic…

Thank you for putting that information out there for those of us who have been asking you incessant questions about it! I especially appreciate that you have shared YOUR personal experiences planning your wedding… including dieting and exercise… since this is one of my favorite reasons to read your blog.

And what’s wrong with opening the discussion for healthy living?

Obviously people will have differing opinions, but it doesn’t take from the fact that you’re real enough to share yours. I think it’s awesome that you 1) stuck with it and 2) understand that its not really for weight loss, but more for getting a clean slate. Your post encourages me to try this, as I’ve been thinking about it for awhile.

Although I do have a question: were you finished by your shower? I think it’d be really hard to abstain from all the goodies at something like that! :)

that being said, i like the idea of cleansing to get rid of years of “yuck.” a best friend and bridesmaid is from germany – i met her when she was 17 and she had been doing this every year for years – and still is at 25. its a yearly thing for her just to clean out her body. nothing too frequent, but yearly. she does it for 2 weeks – her boyfriend does it for a full month. they are some of the healthiest people i know.

so knowing that i already have gained a healthy perspective on food through weight watchers, and i’m not really interested in losing more weight – i just would like to clean out my body. my fiance and i are going to try this together at the end of may for just 7 days. i’ll let you know how to goes!

its a different situation for everyone, and i applaud you for making it “stick” as far as eating healthier and sharing your experience!

I can’t imagine the sense of accomplishment you must feel. Be proud of yourself!

It’s not really a matter of opinion as you say– it is unhealthy. I’d be interested to hear weight loss and healthy eating efforts a few months down the road if you’re willing to share to see if it sticks as a result of the cleanse.

Don’t get me wrong– I’m glad it worked for you. But I would encourage others who want to lose weight to consult their doctors before starting any sort of diet plan, especially one as drastic as a “cleanse.”

Hopefully this is respectful– I’m not judging you or anything– after all, you’re free to do what you like, and this is your blog! (And I love your blog!) But like Maggie, I feel there is so much misinformation out there regarding healthy eating and it can be dangerous. In any case, congrats on the weight-loss!

If I had started eating healthier and working out earlier, I might not have been as quick to try this cleanse. I didn’t do the cleanse just to lose weight, but also to help break my addiction to caffeine and bad foods- and I have achieved those results so I am happy. thank you for being respectful in your comment!

@maggie- you quoted from the article ‘lengthy’ ‘repeated’ ‘long-term fasting.’ 10 days is not considered long term.

I found that a fresh fruit and veggie juice cleanse was just as effective and much easier on me and my body. That, combined with The Raw Food Detox Diet, helped me keep the weight off. FYI.
