Agreed, yr not supposed to eat during the MC. However, I also had concerns of my metabolism getting sluggish while on the cleanse. I've continued to exercise (running and Nautilus) to keep my metabolism somewhat amped. Yeah, I don't quite have the strength or endurance I had prior to starting the Master-Cleanse and I anticipated that. But I feel a little more reassured knowing that I'm doing SOMETHING physical in the meantime. I'm going to be particularly mindful of what I eat over the next couple of weeks when I get off the Master-Cleanse and readjust to my normal vegetarian diet. I also plan to stick to my exercise routine as usual. I would think this would do the trick, no?
