Day 9: Breaking the Fast
decision to listen to my body

I decided to break my cleanse early because my melasma -- the reason I started this -- was and is getting worse. I felt as if I was ready to stop after a week since my tongue was pink, but when I asked about that on a message board someone said that I had to continue for 10 days. I pushed it; it caused my problem to get worse; I'm stopping. I think the lesson here is: listen to your body! I wish I had stopped after one week. That was the right time for me.
I broke with orange juice and, this afternoon, a nectarine.
I wouldn't say this has been a bust but I wish I hadn't continued that extra day or two. Maybe it's because I didn't use the maple syrup; maybe I shouldn't have been running/working out during this time.
In any case, this has been a truthful account of my master cleanse, and I hope someday it helps someone make decisions for themselves.
