I couldn't live in a body that has been so good to
me...and that I was not treating well. So it rebelled.
It hurt. It wouldn't heal. It's tired. When you wake up
in the morning and your first thought is, "I'm tired"
it's pretty clear...
The time had arrived.
I thought about it for a very long time.
A couple of years ago I watched utube videos
of other peoples experiences. I thought there was
no way I could do that.
But slowly a realization came over me that,
I needed a break from eating. I needed to
step back and not think about food. I was
tired of always being hungry, but never satisfied.
Many years ago a friend once told me
"Krystal, when you get control of your weight,
you will have control of your life."
I never forgot that.

So, I got the book The Master Cleanse and the following book
Beyond the Master Cleanse.
I read them, cover to cover, and kept reading
both, over and over.
I took one week to prepare myself
by drinking the lemonade all day
eating fish and a salad at night.
I still drank wine.
Food tasted AMAZING.

I started the following monday.
I chose to do the herbal laxatives
and the tea, instead of the salt water flush.
Did I suffer...yes.
Headaches, tired, a little nausea
and cramping from the laxatives.
The worst part was any social event.
Watching your family cook and
eat and drink together...that's difficult.
And the evenings, when you are not
distracted by work and people around you.
When you are alone, ready to relax with
a glass of wine and food..comfort, reward.
I had to isolate myself, go to bed,
read, meditate, walk.
Was it worth it...yes
I lost 10 lbs.
But bigger than that.
I have a body that is thanking me
by healing itself.
And I am ravenous for more information
on the concept and belief that...
FOOD IS FUEL.
I want premium grade...to give me maximum results.
