I would recommend you have a blood test called a TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone). It will determine if you have low thyroid hormones, your diet and exercise routines are good enough, so you should be losing weight

I did I tired it for almost a month but did not lose any bit , do you think it's ok to do the master cleanse for 10 days only drinking Celtic sea salt water flush first thing in the morning , then after two hours


 


the Master Cleanse ingredients: lemon juice, maple syrup grade b, cayenne pepper, and water then every 2 hours I drink the lemon juice with maple syrup grade be etc

I think it may help with weight loss, but I don't recommend it , it may be dangerous because it can cause exhaustion
Customer: replied 12 months ago.


I mean just to reset right after 10 days I will go eat clean and healthy what do you think

Expert:  Dr. Brims replied 12 months ago.
I think it may help with weight loss
