Beyonce apparently lost 20 pounds in 14 days.
I would love to lose that much before my wedding. Even 10 would be great.
I think I may try.... running out of time.
Anyone one try? Did it work?

If it works for you, great! It's just not my cup of tea.

There are a lot of side effects that someone like Beyonce has the luxury of dealing with. you should be completely off and able to stay at home and rest during that time. There are intense headaches associated with this type of cleanse due to hunger and the elimination of caffeine, etc. They body goes through a big shock. I read that you should keep away from all kinds of food because of the temptation, but that after a few days food begins to become nauseating.
You do lose quite a bit of weight, but it is mainly water and poo (for lack of a better term). Because of that, you will gain about 50% of the weight back within a few days. Also, having not eaten in that amount of time, you have to let your body slowly adjust to having food again and that transition takes about a week. You start off with liquids only then gradually work your way up to eating solids again.
I agree with the other girls. Cutting out refined sugars, white carbs, excess fats, sodas, etc. is probably a better way to go. Add in some cardio and plenty of sleep and you will see longer lasting results.

THe salt water flush is horrible enough.
Also if you researched further, Beyonce herself said it was a horrible and unhealthy way to lose weight and would never recommend it to anyone.
BTW, it is not a weight loss program at all, but is infact called the Master Cleanse if you want to look into it further.
