A:    First of all, in the view that you are on Lithium treatment, consult with your doctor if it is ok to start the “master cleanse”. Also I recommend you to get an evaluation by a nutritionist or dietitian to determine the best choice regarding a healthy diet regime for you to lose the excess of weight.
