    What are some good methods for detox (and not the Lindsey jokes)? Seriously, trying to cleanse myself of all the sups and start over on a clean slate so they have a better effect.

    Is it a good or bad idea?

    Any trials & errors?

    agreed, they are all scams.

    If you are trying to cleanse yourself of all the previous supplements, it will take about a month for your body to do it naturally. Just drink LOTS of water and eat leafy dark greens (kale, collard or turnip green will REALLY get things moving, lol).

    Agree. Just stop taking crap, and your body will clear itself.

    It depends what your goals are. I've always been a bit skeptical because you are basically depriving your body of nourishment so you should be in good health, possibly get advice from your doctor and make sure it's the right 'detox' for you. Although the term to detox is a bit of a marketing tool, there are some good reasons to stop putting additional toxins into your system. So with this in mind, it's not a bad idea to go on a 'detox' or whatever you want to call it but again, you should be in good health. You can also lose those last few stubborn pounds and maintain it as long at you were already a healthy eater, however you will gain the weight back if you go back to 'bad' eating habits.

    I've done two detoxes specifically to 'reset' my body and get rid of certain 'bad' habits (caffeine, processed carbs, etc) It's funny you put this post up because I'm actually on one all this week. It's a variation of the "master cleanse", however I'm including 3 protein drinks a day for nourishment as well as the lemon aide concoction drink that you do with the master cleanse, tons of water and I'm also drinking one kombucha a day.

    So bottom line, you will encounter critics when it comes to detox programs but do some research yourself and see if it's good for you but do keep in mind the term 'detox' is more a marketing tool because your liver does the detoxing. Lemon juice actually does aid the liver in the detoxification process though. If you embark on something like this make sure you have a specific purpose and goals...i.e. stop processed carbs, caffeine, alcohol, etc; Good luck!

    I just make sure I drink a lot of water, eat fresh real foods (as raw as possible), get lots of exercise, and clean my ass out frequently. Really.

    If you really want to detox, stop smoking, stop drinking, eat your leafy greens, and drink buckets of water (not soda, not coffee, not juice, not caffeinated tea) for a few weeks. You'll be amazed how good you feel.

    Like everyone else said, do it naturally with your diet.
    If you use all that body detox crap, you'll have to double-detox in order to get rid of the detox crap, too. It is definitely a scam.

    The oldest trick in the book... fasting .....not necessarily not eating or drinking at all, you cant keep that up forever... but avoiding certain types of foods or overeating for a while and just drinking only water is very effective... I know I do it by eating vegetarian, in reasonable amounts, and not having caffeine or any other drugs

    Yu could even go so far s to avoid spicy foods, such as onions, garlic, spices, pepper etc

    That's all scams, garbage, crap.

    Eat right, and drink plenty of water.

    Hmm, it's hard to say for me. I've never detoxed before, but I've had a couple friends who have done the master cleanse with good results. If you pair it with the salt water flush or bentonite cleanse, you basically can help your body to clean out your intestines, which are impacted with years and years of meat and other nasty shit you've been eating that the body can't easily digest.

    Also, I'd add that anything other than an all natural cleanse probably is a scam. There's nothing for anybody to gain off of you drinking lots of lemon juice and maple syrup (master cleanse). But to pay for some detox product off the shelf... probably not a good idea.

    So, I guess I'd say, if you want to do it, just do it, regardless of what people have to say. Then you'll know if it was worth it or not, and if you'd ever do it again. And yes, obviously, in general you should be eating healthy and drinking tons of water. Duh.

    I was skeptical till I did a 7 day cleanse outlined by this yoga guru, Baron Baptiste. Basically the first couple and the last couple days you eat all natural foods. Each meal has one serving of high quality protein with fruit, whole grains etc. In the middle of the cleanse there is a 3 day fruit cleanse where basically you eat nothing but fruit. It's amazing how much energy you have when it's all over and done with, and for me it eliminated a lot of the cravings I had for sweets, carbs and cookies. For awhile afterwards I ate much smaller proportions and had the same level of strength and energy.

    It's a great cleanse I plan on doing every couple months to flush my system.
