You are making a great choice!! I have read Boutenko's books and they are great!! There is a ton of support on this thread. I am currently on day 9 of this MC, but have been raw since my last cleanse ending in January. It is amazing. Read through the posts on here and on "After the Cleanse" and you should find a lot of answers for getting started!! Good luck on the cleanse. Do you have a plan for how long you'll stay on MC?
