This was my second time doing the cleanse and I feel great. Last time I only lasted 8 days, I was feeling really sick and weak and had to stop. That was in November 2005. This time I lasted 14 days and I feel great. I had very no problems, detox symptoms were tolerable and had lots of energy. I continued my workouts 5 days a week, however I cut the time from 3 hours to 2-21/2 hours. This included at least 1 hour of cardio and 1 hour of weight training. I couldn't believe how energic I was. I have really learned the strong grip that food has on us mentally. I realized I wanted to eat just because something smelled or looked good; not because I needed to eat for nourishment. Once I accepted that aspect of my thinking, I was able to control my desire for foods (especially ones that are not healthy). That made it alot easier to follow the program so easily. I had changed the way I ate for the last since 2003 and have lost 65 pounds. ( I gained 80 pounds after having both knees replaced in 2000 and 2002). During the holidays last year, I just went buck wild and ate my famous sweet potato pie everyday for 2 months and gained back 20 pounds. I have now lost almost half of that through this cleanse and I feel amazing. If anyone is pondering whether to do it or not, just think of how wonderful and healthy you will feel when you are finished. Bragging rights don't hurt either. I plan to do it again in 4-5 months for 28 days. Today is my last day and I am so looking forward to some vegetable soup. Thank you to all who have posted here. Alot of your shared experiences have helped me. Hopefully, I will be able to return the favor to someone else.
