Day 8, 4 lbs, no shakes. 6 - 10 glasses of lemonade a day, On day 5 I took the syrup down to 1 or 2 tsp. per glass.
I liked what pepe said about this cleanse. That it is not necessarily about wieght lost. It is about healing. It is about cleasing the mind on all it's thoughts on food. A much harder task to create new habits and I'm sure I would need to be on this fast much longer. I have found that without food I am bored, unbeleiveably bored and resentful. It has played such a big role in my life. Day 8 I think this feeling of resentment and feeling deprived is sad and funny. On day 4 - 7 I wasn't laughing. I was angry.
I also noticed how much of my socializing has revolved around food. Another reason why I am bored. Opportunities to go out and visit with friends and family disintegrate because I don't want to be around them eating. I don't have it in me and niether do they. They think I'm crazy.
I wish I was losing more wieght because I am afraid of rapid wieght gain after I transition back. I happen to be a healthy eater. I think I snack too much. We will see....
