What Kind of Cheating is Okay? More Juice, Eating Lemons, Drinking Syrup, Herbal Teas, other Teas, Fruits, Veggies, Gum, Crackers, Broths, Warm Salt Water, Coffee?

There are degrees of cheating. Drinking more juice simply increases your calorie intake and you will not lose as much weight. Obviously, eating lemons, maple syrup, or a teaspoon of cayenne won’t hurt either. Herbal Teas are okay, but caffeinated teas are pushing it. Digesting any food will cause your body to be less efficient at eliminating wastes. Chewing and not swallowing will cause your body to begin the digestive process and secrete acids. This is bad for your stomach – so, no gum.

    What about chewing on celery? I’ve hard a hard time with the salt flush and having a bowel movement? I’m on day 1…tomorrow I will add more salt in the morning but what do I do in the meantime…. Celery is nothing but water…..

    To be perfectly honest, I don’t buy the whole detox thing. And the “heat” felt during bowel movements with lots of toxins? Sorry, thats the cayenne pepper, anybody whose eaten an angry whopper will tell you about it’s bumhole burning effects. I do my own version of it anyway, because I always seem to benefit from the vacation from food. I still drink coffee, more than I should I agree, but I see no evidence out there that coffee is any worse than any other herbal beverage. Plus I work night shift, I need it! I decided out of the blue to do this thursday, and it is now sunday. Vague craving for fast food, which is wierd because I almost never eat such things . Its not hunger though . Usually I find that i have a hard time consuming enough of the lemonade, and can go 8 hours or more without getting a glimpse of hunger to remind me to drink. I also mix my lemonade with a blend of bottled lime and lemon juice. Im sure I would get a slap for that too lol. I really dont believe the whole enzyme thing either…. I havent seen anything saying which enzymes these actually ARE, or what they really do. All in all, I feel the diet has some good advice…for fasting anyway . It provides a good calorie source, though the nutrients are lacking. I just go with the basic plan until i start feeling severely undernourished…every time its different…some days its not till day 15, other times its day 5. Just dont venture too far if you understand nutrition, and give it youre all! Ive experienced the horrible hunger, if you can’t do it, your body isnt ready! Try eating healthily for awhile, and try again! You will be suprised, im sure. Good luck all!

      Its not really a matter of what you believe, this cleanse gets people results. There are dedicated videos of people doing this cleanse on youtube and losing tons of weight, plus it isn’t a coincidence that they all have fantastic skin. Go check it out yourself. :)

    I have taken a pinch of sunflower seed, litterally about 5 or 6 of them. Maybe it makes the body “less efficient” in getting rid of toxins, but one thing it does, is that it helps me “get rid of the waste” if you know what I mean… Without adding too much calories to my diet.
    Works great so far. I’m on my 5th day.

    I’m glad I read this. I’ve been craving to chew (on the 2nd day, no issues on the 1st), and was considering gum…I kinda knew the answer to this already, but it was good to be certain.

    Thank you!
