Day 1, Part 2

What have I gotten myself into? I can’t say that I am hungry, my stomach is working away on the little I am giving it, but I am overwhelmed with a sense of lethargy and absent mindedness. I don’t have a headache but feel very light in the head.

Never again will I look at real maple syrup with the same longing I now do. Pancakes, waffles and French toast no longer hold and ‘treat’ appeal for me. Dreams of whipped butter melting on a stack of griddle cakes among waves of syrup are now nightmares.

It amazes me how much I love food. I have already planned my first supper. 6oz filet mignon (bacon wrapped of course) 2 skewers of shrimp with garlic butter for dipping, mashed potatoes and green beans. Plus pumpkin pie (and I mean the entire thing) for dessert. The fork and knife (if I bother with them at all) will likely fall victim along with the plate, napkin and table.

I made the mistake of going to the gym this morning. In speaking with other people and reading about the master cleanse, I heard that the syrup gives you the energy you need and you can carry on as usual. So I did. Chest and biceps. The syrup has done its part but my muscles now want protein. And so do I! Whoa is me.

This "cleanse" wouldn't by chance be sponsored by The Maple Syrup Producers of Canada now would it? Sounds dangerous if you ask me - nothing worse than driving light headed to work my dear. I may have to come over to your house and force feed you lard mixed with Flintstones vitamins!

My first "meal" is diluted orange juice. I then get vegetable broth with no vegetables. Day three I get the broth with the vegetables and then I can eat regular food.
