My Personal Science Experiment

Well, I’m now into my 6th day of “Project Cleanse.” And I have to say, I think things are working. I don’t want to go into too much detail because I don’t really like to talk too much about my own bodily functions. If they were someone else, no problem, but me? I’m too modest.

But for the sake of information, and since AllThingsJuice was so interested I’m setting my modesty aside. Here’s what’s going on. I haven’t been gassier than normal, but the smell, oh my. Pungent. I’ve kept my diet the same as always, but I’ve been having more “movements” than normal. Instead of going once a day, I’m now up to 2 to 4 times a day and they are bigger and softer. There also seems to be more chunks of stuff in them. And, no I don’t normally make it a habit of inspecting my poop, but since Project Cleanse has been happening, I’m a little more curious than normal.

I’ve been trying to stick closer to home than I usually do, for obvious reasons. I also feel lighter, for obvious reasons. I feel better, have a little more energy and am sleeping better. I can’t directly attribute all these things to Project Cleanse, but who knows and that’s what’s happening right now. I’ll continue to do Project Cleanse for the recommended 10 days. I’m not sure how often it’s recommended, but I would do this again.

Sorry this is so disgusting. I hope when we all meet you won’t look at me with that strange deer-in-the-headlights look because this is all way too much talk and information.

I'm not fazed by poop talk! When you change your diet, or cleanse, there is a definite change for the better and of course it's good to notice it. Good for you for taking note!

Thanks for the update (and the link!). Hmm, sounds interesting. Perhaps I'll try it. I wouldn't mind feeling a little lighter...

Actually, I'm really glad that you're writing about this. I'm interested, but nervous about trying something like that! Thanks for the info!

I've also always been interested in this. How many days does one do a cleanse?

Thanks for being the science experiment - for all of us. :)
