    Sleeved on October 21, 2016.
    HW - 254
    SW - 245
    CW - 169
    My question is, has any one tried the master cleanse after having the sleeve? And if so, how did it go? I'm wanting to cleanse to help get toxins out of my body, not for weight loss. I have done this cleanse in the past, years ago, for cleansing and never had a problem, always had great results. So I'm not new to the cleanse, However, now that I've had bariatric surgery, I want to know what I may be getting myself into.

    I don't know a lot about these cleanses but it doesn't sound like a good idea after bariatric surgery. Post surgery due to the small size of the stomach there is a high risk of being nutrient deficient, and these cleanse diets do not have a lot of nutritional value. You would just be depriving your body of what it needs to remain healthy. Before doing anything like this check with your doctor to make sure you won't be doing yourself any harm by it.

    I would incorporate a different sort of cleanse. Can't do fasting cleanses. But there are others...google.

    I would not without talking to my Dr but I think you are asking for a case of screaming diarrehea and loss of nutrients. Sounds like a really bad idea.
