I decided to to go off the cleanse on day 14 and figured I could loose the weight doing the Raw Food Diet. On day 14, 6 lbs dropped off. I was encouraged and due to other detox symptoms decided to go back on the cleanse.
I read and posted in the SWF forum and Mtmouse said,
"The SWF must be done first thing, on an empty stomach, or not at all. You should not drink water or lemonade or anything else before it."
Since then I do the SWF correctly, the very first think in the AM and have had no trouble.
I am on day 18 and doing well.
I hope this helps.
