My second day the detox hit me between the eyes and I spent most of the day in bed feeling like the flu had bopped me. Then in the 20's it seemed another whole layer of detox kicked in and I had the brain fog and body aching detox thing going on.
I too never got over my feeling of psychological hunger. I had to avert my eyes at food commercials on television, but I could sit down with others eating and not be tempted since like someone else mentioned, eating after the first couple of days will tear your stomach up. Some other posters had posted their experience of eating and major regrets so I did not allow my brain the option of quitting or eating, although I will confess to *licking* a corn chip and throwing it away somewhere in there...ggg.
I ended on 30 which by then it was easy food wise but emotionally I was ready and just bored to pieces doing the cleanse. I probably could be talked into doing another long cleanse again but think that one has to be prepared to face those challenges and in my reading I had not come across much about that aspect of the cleanse. Also, being psychically sensitive, I realized I used food to shut off a lot of those impressions and after 3 hurricanes, I was more than ready to shut it down.
be happy, be well,
