Two and a half years ago I was probably at my lowest point health wise. I had just graduated college, moved out on my own, and spent the summer living it up with my roommates. The shock of working full time, white not quite knowing if what I was doing was right for me was often balanced out by eating whatever the hell I wanted.
Constant dieting throughout high school led me to go on a tailspin throughout college and beyond. Around October 2007 my two roommates and I decided that we needed to do a cleanse. We chose to do the Lemonade Diet, also known as the Master Cleanse, for 10 days. I had done this before but found it extremely difficult emotionally.
This time I meant business. I knew that if I didn’t change my ways I would go on feeling the way I did forever. I was lethargic, unmotivated, uninspired, had digestive problems, and was just going through the motions. If “blah” was a feeling, that was how I felt. I needed a drastic change.
