I am from New York City. My boss used to do the Master-Cleanse all the time and I thought he was INSANE, a QUACK but he always looked fine and worked a full hard day. I was always shocked to see how easily he seemed to go about his business. I am sure he had highs and lows but still he went about his way. When I started feeling bad I went to Dr's but they are quick with the prescriptions (mind you I have no serious illnesses) I also ate for comfort and I ate a whole lot. I work out alot too so I'm not big but it's amazing how much my body could hold. I was always tired. I also have super high cholesterol despite being thin and looking healthy. So I decided to give this a try. The Dr's haven't really offered me a solution so I thought I'd take responsibility.
