I'm on day 6 of the cleanse so far I've lost 7 pounds but today when I weighed myself I gained two pounds back. I have been following the juice recipe to the T and drinking the laxative tea at night. The only thing that hasn't been consistent is the SWF. I have been either drinking the Tea or drinking a concentrated amount with 1 quart of water. I'm wondering if it is the SWF so today I followed the precise recipe for the SWF. Am I going to continue to gain weight? What is the deal? HELP!
Hi pixiblue2, and welcome aboard! I am relatively new to the board, but can share what I know from experience and from what I've read. You probably already know this, but if you are comparing weight from day to day, you'd want to compare at the same times. Personally I like to do that the first thing when I wake up before I ingest anything, but I am also a bit obsessive and do it several times throughout the day and keep a log of the whole cleanse on a notepad file on my desktop.
With the SWF, I am not sure how it would effect weight, but it would seem the results would be optimal(at least for the cleansing) if you do it precisely. One thing I noted either on here or another site was that if you are using coarsely ground salt(vs fine), you likely will need to increase the dosage as less of it fits in each spoonful.
I don't see any reason why you should gain weight, but if it isn't a simple matter of weighing yourself at different times(and in relation to before or after you drink anything, which will add a good deal of water weight until it is eliminated), the amount of lemonades can be altered to increase or decrease weight, as can the amount of maple syrup in each lemonade. I realize our bodies are all different, but to answer your last question, I don't think you should expect to be gaining weight on the cleanse. Let us know how it is going, and I'm guessing others will be happy to share what they can as well.

Are you drinking 6 lemonaids or more? I would try to lower the amount to 6 per day also make sure that you are wieghing at the same time every day or not get on the scale for a day or two.
Once I gained but lost the next day and it wasn't more than 1/2 lb. sometimes we do get bloated so drink lots of plain water inbetween the lemonaids. hope all this helps.
