The Master Cleanse – Day 3

by Bart on March 22, 2010


The lax tea woke me up at around 2:00am. After a quick trip to the bathroom, I was back to bed and soundly asleep 20 minutes later.

The effects of the salt water flush lasted unusually long this morning. After drinking the water shortly after I woke up at 7:30am, I was still running to the bathroom at 11:30am. I don’t recall the SWF taking so long to work itself though my digestive system during either of my two previous Master Cleanses.

I had my first four cups of the lemonade already. First two at 9:00am and the second two at 11:45am. My energy has been pretty good. Definitely not feeling tired today, at least not yet.

I’ve had the first unusual thing happen this morning – my left eye felt as if it had something in it. Not just one thing but a number of them. There was nothing, I checked quite a few times. This feeling lasted for about 30 minutes, then went away.

During prior cleanses I’ve experienced a number of issues like this, for example a metallic taste, or a pain in the part of my left elbow where a needle would go to take blood. These things usually last from a few hours to a day or two, then disappear.

We have a rainy weather today, and expect the same tomorrow, so on my lunch hour I took a quick drive to the health food store to stock up on extra lemons. I would have run out before mid day tomorrow, otherwise. I bought 20 lemons – just under 6 lbs. That should last until Friday.


In my last batch of lemons, I had some that were very large, and also very juicy. One lemon was enough for 4 tablespoons of juice, or two cups of the lemonade. Other lemons were more regularly sized, and it usually takes two of them to make two cups.

Well, lunch time is over, time to get back to work.


I feel like such a pig. I had 8 cups of the lemonade today! :-)

Actually, I have been feeling a little hungry most of the afternoon, but not in a I-have-to-eat-now way, but rather in a it-is-just-there way. Kind of like a wind.

Since my morning eye weirdness, I have not experienced anything unusual. I had enough energy to get another short workout done around 5:30pm. I was feeling a bit cold, and that helped tremendously, although now I am a bit cold again. It’s almost time for the lax tea, though, so I think I’ll go that route.
