Day 4 finally was able to get out of bed on time. I can’t say that my sleeping in was due to the cleanse as I love to sleep. I had trouble sleeping again last night. It might have been due to the hunger I was feeling. I had no more juice left to drink and I didn’t want to fill up with water. I though I would fall asleep soon enough, and I did eventually. I have a few things on my mind, but I also played hockey at 9:00 pm for an hour and a half. I felt great playing hockey – for those of you who wonder about exercise while on the lemonade diet. I will be starting a workout program based on the 5BX program. The father of the 65 year old man that I sit beside in my old-pro hockey games invented this program. It is a program designed to be done with body weight only – no weights or equipment. I will start with push ups and situps each morning starting tomorrow morning.
When I got out of bed I could feel my blood pressure. It swells to the beat of my heart and can almost be heard, that sudden rush of blood to your head when you get up is similar. After taking my vitals I saw my blood pressure to be high. I am assuming this is due to a few things, but I really don’t know. It could be that I didn’t sleep well again. Or that I had not eaten (the juice) since 8:30 the night before. Or that I played hockey. Or that I had not eaten much of the juice since 8:30. More likely though it was because I had not flushed using the Salt Water Flush yet and the toxins were building up.
After the vitals I successfully drank and flushed the salt water. It was very gross. The picture of it is below. Click the title to see it.
Today’s Vitals showed a drop in weight of over 5 pounds. There was also noticeable difference in my measurements as well.

There was some big chunks in here, don’t be fooled to thinking it was only liquid. It all settled down. Wow – so stinky.
Height in Inches
72.5 – Of course this is never going to change, but it comes into play in calculating my Body Mass Index and calculating Body Fat Index as well.
197.4 – A change of 2.5 pounds. I am amazed at how much weigh I have lost already. That is almost 10 pounds in 3 days. These results don’t seem typical.
Body Fat Index
17.5 – A drop of almost 9%. This seems like a big drop. I am calculating my body fat using the scale I weigh myself with. It shoots electrical pulses through your body and judges your weight and height(programmed in by me). I can say how accuracte it is, but it should be at least relatively accurate to my starting point. We’ll see how this plays out.
Body Mass Index
26.4 – Slight improvement again – which seems strange since the drop in weight but it’s relative to yesterdays drop in weight.
7.2 – No change here. I am testing this using a litmus paper tester that gives a range of your PH balance. There are digital ones that are around $100.00 that I am going to try
72 – My heart rate was up substantially. This seems high but I don’t know. I have to get my normal rate. I will call my doctor and get my most recent results.
Systolic Blood Pressure
149 – up from yesterday’s 146. I am told this is high, but I think it is due to the reasons mentioned above. I am going to test 3 times a day to better understand.
Diastolic Blood Pressure
89 – Same as yesterday.
Average – Need a better reading. My blood pressure machine takes a simple reading.
Waist in Inches
35.8 – up .2 inches – maybe human error here.
Belly in Inches
37.8 – down from 39. My belly feels smaller.
Chest in Inches
41.7 – an increase you can probably chalk up to human error.
Biceps in Inches
14.4 – an increase again. Not sure how to measure accurately every time.
Leg/Quad in Inches
23.2 – slight decrease.
Gut Pinch in Inches
4.5 – 1 inch less. I believe it. This area is full of “Hard” fat that you know is fortified and has been there a while. During the cleanse it starts to break up and loosen.
