I agree with the other folks. I don't think the two mix-and what's the purpose anyway? You're not going to detox and you'll probably gain weight. I think the syrup has 100 calories per 2 TBS (I'm too lazy to get up and look! Haven't been feeling real great today). Maybe try juice fasting first if you're not ready to give up the food? I did 6 days of the Master-Cleanse (first fast) and felt so sick on day 6 that I have moved to juicing. It was weird because I felt great up to today. Very strange. I'll try again in about 45 days. One thing is for sure everyone's experience seems to be different. Good Luck.
