When I did my first cleanse, I was vegan for awhile and kept losing. I'm on my 5th or 6th cleanse. It's been about a year since my last cleanse. And boy have I gained the weight back. I feel better when I eat vegan. And I tried to stay away from processed foods. Sometimes that's difficult. But I plan to start my vegan diet when I finish my current cleanse. I'm on day 9 of my current cleanse. I am going to attempt to be vegan once again. And another thing is one should try to cleanse every season or every 3 or 4 months. When I do that, I feel much better and my weight stays controlled.
