Yes, I did one a couple of weeks ago. It involves lots of water, some sort of colon care, blue green algae/chlorella/spirulina suppliments, milk thistle, organic salads, juicing organic veggies, and berries. I got mine from the book You are what you eat, by Gillian McKeith. But I'm sure you can get them elsewhere too.
Its supposed to be good in getting rid of the toxins accumulated in your body ie from pesticides, pollution, unhealthy eating etc. If your body is very toxic then you will feel like crap coz the toxins have to be released (from storage in your fat) into the blood streams in order to gotton rid of. But if you're reasonably healthy then you'll feel okay.
The funny thing with my cleanse was that I didn't feel hungry at all - in fact I felt stuffed!! And, afterwards, it helped kickstart healthier eating and also helped to de-bloat my stomach.
