Some of the weight that you lose with the Master-Cleanse is water. I went from an 8 to close to a 4. I normally lose 10-15 lbs in a 10 day period although my purpose is not for weight loss. You will find that the weight will slowly creep back up once you start the orange juice. The Master-Cleanse is really good to do if you are wanting to get the bad stuff out of your body in preparation to begin more healthy eating habits. Good luck!
