The first 3 to 4 days are definately the most difficult. Mostly craving food and a subtle stomach pain - like when you feel hungry. Once you get past these first tough days the hunger pains do actually subside - even to the point where on day 10 I had absolutley no food cravings and felt fantastic - physically and mentally. I think the stomach pain during the first couple of days is partly caused by it shrinking. I have heard that your stomach acutally shrinks substantially throughout the fast.
If you have never done this and plan on doing so be prepared for some short term discomfort - I did not get any significant joint pain or headaches but I know this is common.
I use Senna tea for laxative morning and night - this stuff works but can cause alot of discomfort and sometimes extremely untimely reactions, but it works and it is essential to keep things moving.
I used the salt water flush twice but really have trouble drinking the quart of salt water without gagging uncontrollable - just the thought turns my stomach.
I plan on going for 21 starting this monday.
