    Anyone ever done this or have any opinions about it? I may try it just for the mental and spiritual aspects of it.

    My GSI's roommate did it. That's all I have to contribute.

    im not a fan of cleansing. I believe (personal beliefs) that the body is always under a constant state of cleansing through regular digestive measures. If I think that I need to take extra steps to "wash" out any oxidants, I spend a few days consuming excessive amounts of water.

    IMO
    There is a trainer at our gym that suggests every new starter do a cleans. Sure they drop a significant amount of weight that week, but, its only temporary and over the following weeks when they build up the digetive track again, they gain weight and can suffer emotional issues when they see negative results even though they are training more than ever.

    I'm not doing it to lose weight, I want to do it to prove to myself that I can and that I have control over all of my wants, needs and desires.

    I take it that you are not a fan of this? I always respect your opinion, you think this is a bad idea?:)

    Mental? As in torturing yourself type of mental? You seem as if you have a lot of self control and determination with lifting, I don't think you need lemonade to prove it to yourself

    After reading the website it seems "gimmicky" but Im sure it works to some extent considering your starving yourself and taking laxatives.

    Browsed some sites as well. You gain 3/4 of the weight back and since there are no protein involved for the duration of the "Lemon Detox" it's probably mostly lean tissue loss.






    If you want a test, there's a blue lotus flower on top of the Himalayan mountains. Find it and bring it to me.

    Not recommended. Flawed premise and largely ineffective. Ray, you can do anything you set your mind to. Your history suggests this. IMO find a less detrimental way to test yourself, if you must. Or, test yourself by not testing yourself. This may prove to be more difficult.

    as I said on the other board, I'm not for this kind of diet for "cleansing"

    if you want to test yourself, find something you really love that wouldn't have a negative effect on your body if you go without and go without for a certain length of time.

    ie. my g/f (and most women) going without chocolate for a month.

    There is no doubt that I can do anything that I put my mind to. I'm looking at the spiritual and mental cleansing aspects of it.

    I have some magic beans, they have an imprint of a naked lady, are blue in color, and are double stacked. They last for 4 hours and put you in a state of well being and high sense of spirituality. You should try them.
