I am just finishing up day 3. This is my 15th? cleanse. It gets better everytime. The first cleanse I would walk into the kitchen and my arm would reach for fridge or cupboard. Weird. Now I rarely have cravings. Like I said "RARELY". Whenever I do, which is usually when someone is eating something very tempting at work or home, I will go ask if I can take a big nose hit. Man, does that work. Craving is instantly gone. It must be a brain thing. Satisfied something........mind over matter
As far as duration, when I start, my goal is 10 days per the book. Once I am into it (like day 5-7), I'm thinkin', hmmm, I should go longer. Then when day 9 hits, ARRRRRGHHHH, can I make it one more day? I always break after 10 full dayz. Matter over mind. I dont know what it is.......
Slight Segwey- I know coated tongue is one of measurments as to how well cleanse is going and when clear, being able to stop. The back of tongue comes from intestinal cleanse. I have eczema which I believe is linked to poor digestion of fatty acids? My tongue has never cleared in back. Most of the time when not cleansing, it is still white.......whats up with that?
