The Master Cleanse and Establishing a Healthy Relationship with Food

I have just finished the Master Cleanse to detox my body from everything that has accumulated in my system over the years, 31 years to be exact. 😉 WOW! I have to share all that I have learned throughout this experience and also how wonderful I feel.

By day 3, I was wanting to eat something, mainly when I was in the grocery store purchasing more lemons, and found that once I listened to the feeling my body was creating, I noticed that it wasn’t hunger, but a craving.
