The MC is NOTa crash weightloss diet and it does NOT work by the restrictions of calories. Not only do you make matters worse for yourself by keeping yourself hungry by cutting down the MS you also are not providing enough carbs to keep energy levels up and replenishing minerals in your system. In addition you are also dehydrating yourself by only drinking 36 oz a day. Both these things not only makes thing unhealthy they also slow down the metabolism even more to make matters worse both while on the cleanse and post cleanse where it makes it much harder to keep off any weight you lost.
Quick weight loss is neither healthy NOR permanent. Permanent weightloss requires a lifestyle/diet change and regular exercise. It takes the metabolism 6 to 8 weeks to normalize after fasting. Concurrent fasting without including periods of rest in between that includes balance nutrition and exercise may cause permanent damage to the metabalism and cause other health issues. It will aslo make it extremely difficult to continue loosing weight in the future.
There are no "tricks" or magic bullets. BMI SCHMI MI. Being overweight is NOT a thing in and of itself it is a HEALTH issue. The primary focus of loosing weight is and will always be balanced nutrition AND regular exercise. The Master CLEANSE when done PROPERLYis just a tool and NOT the goal. It CLEANSES the junk out of your systen so it will operate more efficiently so you can continue to loose weight safely and efficiently in the future through balanced nutrition and exercise
