Q: My wife wants to do a cleanse and insists that I join her. But I think these are for wusses. Help!

Angela says…
Find your backbone and join her, if not for your health then to support the woman you love. If you hate it, it only cost you a few days but the experience will give you something new to bond over. (You can tease each other about lemon water forever more.) If you love it, she can say I told you so as she caresses your newly purified body.

Derek says…
A cleanse definitely sounds like it falls into the realm of meditative chanting and yoga retreats. But while I haven't done one, I hear from friends who have that it's both grueling and exhilarating. Besides, nobody other than your wife need know. Tell friends you're at a work conference or volunteering at a soup kitchen for the week so you have an easy excuse to turn down after work drinks and weekend outings.
