A Cleanse

Dear Mom,

Lately I’ve been eating too much bad food, sweets mainly since I’ve inherited Dad’s sweet tooth. I have to blame somebody. I decided to do a type of cleanse. I’ve tried several that were pretty awful and could never make it through to the end. This one sounds like something I can handle and it’s only for seven days. Only.

You make a huge pot of soup with specific vegetables and you can eat as much as you want all day long. You’re encouraged to stuff yourself. Each day you get to eat something else with it. Day one is all fruit (except bananas). Day two is all vegetables. You get the idea. Also, you’re to drink water—half your weight in ounces. I have travelled to the bathroom more times this morning than I have all week. My belly feels like the weather outside—rainy and sloshy.

But I have hopes I’ll feel great by the time it’s over and be able to fight off the Sweet Tooth Monster. Guess I need to be realistic—at least curb its appetite.


  1. Wow! That sound like an interesting diet. Let us know how it works for you!


  2. Lynn - That sounds awful. I'm all in for watching your progress, though. Betcha have some good stories before the week is over. :)

  3. Hey Lynn! Quite a few years ago, a friend of mine and her husband did this diet....and sure, they lost weight, but when they began to eat "normally" again...well, you know what happened. I'm a firm believer in the "don't give up any foods, just eat smaller portions" kind of weight loss plan. (It's always worked for me...but, I admit I've fallen off that wagon and then placated myself with sweets!!)'s too short!! :D


Thanks for commenting. I don't always comment back, but I do appreciate it.
