Re: meal time
How many ounces
have you drank so far? I don't see anything wrong with drinking 24oz at once, but I usually do it where I drink it every once in a while all day long sorta constantly, that way I'm not hit with hunger and have to gulp down a bunch to feel better. If 24oz is what you need, then I don't think there is a problem with that, especially since you are on day 1, go easy on yourself because it's the first day adapting with no food.
Yes, you probably are thinking about food too much, I know I am. It's completely pyschological for me, I just WANT to eat, I'm not starving or anything. Trust me, get through today and then you'll be one day closer to your goal. If you can get through today, you can get through anything and take as much of the drink as you need. Also, we can have organic mint tea, maybe that would help you a bit? I may have some myself tonight.
By the way, it's day 1 for me too, my 2nd cleanse, first one I did last april (05). Good Luck!
