We took the laxative tea for the first time last Thursday (11.2.06) which means we're both polishing up our 3rd day. She's doing it mainly for weight loss. I'm 6' 1" @ 162lbs... I'm trying to feel better, maybe see if it helps with my carpal tunnel syndrome (I doubt it).
Well, its been a text book MC for me. The first day was the hardest. Aside from wanting to eat food, the nastiness of the SWF, and the boredom from abstaining from social eating... this is very easy for me.
My girlfriend, however, can't stand the taste of the drink. She's had only two today but lots of water. She -might- be able to drink the SWF in 10 minutes. She hates the laxative tea but she finishes it. I'm not sure she's had a real effective elimination yet and she hates talking about such things so I can't press the issue.
I asked about possibly drinking a shot of water with a teaspoon of salt and then drinking 32oz of water... I was told that was a bad idea because its the consistency of the mixture you're mainly looking for (if anyone has another opinion or personal experience, please share).
Now, I'm asking about the possibility of taking a shot of syrup and then drinking the lemon/water/cayenne mix. Anybody have an experience?
I really want her to get through this and effectively. I don't want her to be completely miserable for 10 days with no results. I'm open to any suggestions.
Also, is it safe to put as much cayenne in as you'd like?
EDIT: I wanted to mention, she has a white coated tongue... mine is still pink. Also, I don't think we're using coarse sea salt... please advise
