Popular detox diets promise to flush poisons from your body, purge pounds of excess fat, clear your complexion and bolster your immune system. But experts say there's little evidence that extreme regimens such as the Master Cleanse or Fruit Flush do anything more than lead to unpleasant, unhealthy side effects...

No, but I've actually been thinking about it. I have a good friend who does it now and then. Although what she does is take massive amounts of Vitamin C, until it clears your system. I'm not sure it sounds healthy!

I don't think it would hurt you to take tons of Vitamin C, it would just give you really expensive pee!

KH said it made her stomach hurt after a while, that's why she stopped it.

No, that's not something for me.

Nah you aren't really cleaning out your digestive tract with that...

Yeah it would, it's the ascorbic acid. It's in Kool-Aid too, makes my tummy hurt!

Yes. One of those jugs of juices that claim you're going to lose upto 10 lbs in 48 hours. Yes, you do lose 6-10 pounds, but you get a big headeache and gain it all back as soon as you eat at all again. Not worth it, IMHO.

No, I think those detox diets are all a load of crap. I have an immune system.

no its too much work
14 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Monday 6/4/07 - 9:13:23 PM EST (GMT-5)
I have never put myself on any kind of diet.
14 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Tuesday 6/5/07 - 12:26:29 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, I never have.
14 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Wednesday 6/13/07 - 5:23:29 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, but not because I wanted a detox diet specifically, just because it seemed like the best at the time, regrettably.

oh god, I went on a 48-hour juice fast that I read about, and I lost 8 pounds in 2 days!

However...when I tried to eat on the third day, I couldn't keep anything down, I threw up all morning, had hot and cold flashes, and was on the verge of passing out whenever I tried to walk only a few feet.

Plus, I gained it all back. I'll never do it again.

I think it's all silly and stupid to go through an actual 'detox' diet.

What I do, though, is go through periods of time where I try to eat a lot of fresh food, stay hydrated, and stay away from a lot of sugar-y, oily, salty, and fatty food and increase my intake of fruits and vegetables. Perhaps I should eat like that all the time, but I get lazy and go back to eating a bit of crap sometimes. However, I feel better during my healthy periods of time.

I was going to, but I've never actually gone through with it.
14 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Sunday 7/8/07 - 6:00:05 PM EST (GMT-5)
No way, of course not. If I lost even ten pounds I would probably end up in the hospital.

I've been tempted to, but I never have. If I had a big event coming up, I'd probably do one.
14 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Saturday 10/20/07 - 6:45:08 PM EST (GMT-5)
No,but I do fast from time to time due to my faith.

No, I don't care for juice. All it does is make my stomach hurt.
