Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore Do Master Cleanse, Tweet About It

Ashton and Demi Start Master Cleanse Together

When it comes to health, Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore like to go into things together. On Saturday, Ashton tweeted that he was starting a Master Cleanse — a popular 10-day detox regimen consisting of a maple syrup, lemon juice, water, and cayenne pepper concoction. But nine hours into it, Ashton shared that he was struggling a bit: "9 hrs into the master cleanse. I want a steak, a beer, and a blow-pop. Hmmm this is gonna be rough."

Since the only thing you're allowed during the cleanse is the prescribed drink, it makes sense that Ashton's mouth is watering for some steak. Gwyneth Paltrow — aka the detox queen — shared that the Master Cleanse was incredibly hard to stick to when she completed it years ago. She also said that it caused her to hallucinate! Gwyneth has since moved on to cleanses that contain solid foods.

Demi seems to be faring a little bit better than Ashton is, tweeting: "2nd day of master cleanse and off to hike with hubby and the dogs. 2nd day better than the 1st!" She also told her followers that the cleanse was "about health," and that they were doing it together for moral support. Last year, to help get Ashton buff for his role in Killers, the couple started the at-home P90x fitness regimen together.

Other fans of the Master Cleanse are Naomi Campbell, Beyonce, and Josh Brolin. Do you agree with Demi that the Master Cleanse is about health, or is it plain unhealthy?

...I'm kidding about the Depends. I would never. But it was THAT bad.

The liquid Master Cleanse is really hard, and it's not fun when you have to down the salt-water solution. I did this last year, not knowing what the salt-water solution would do to me, and I pretty much scolded myself for starting it during the work week and wished I did more research or bought some Depends. No thanks!

Absolutely insane. I remember reading about it once and considering it. Then about two seconds later I returned to reality.

Even if I thought this was healthy, I could never stick with it for 10 days. I like to eat. As others have said, the body detoxes itself under normal circumstances and as long as you are eating well in general, then there should be no need for this type of extreme measure.

It's extremely unhealthy. You basically lose water weight for the time that you're on the cleanse and you gain it back when you start actually eating again. Unless you're doing something you can maintain long-term, you're wasting your time.

I guess just eating balanced, nutritious food is too much bother.

I don't understand detox diets. I mean, doesn't the liver act as a detox system for the body? Unless someone has sclerosis of the liver then it's probably not necessary to torture yourself like that.

Maple Syrup? Really people? How does this ingredient help with "cleansing"??

Lame. Demi needs to concentrate on things beyond her looks and body.

Sounds completely awful both in terms of taste and health.

I think this is bunk. It's a bad idea on many levels. JMHO.

I think it's OK if you are morbidly obese - otherwise, don't see the point. Just make healthy decisions every day.

Ugh sounds disgusting on so many levels! I agree anon. It does sound very unhealthy, and also if hallucinating is side effects count me out!
