I only make about 1 1/2 cups to start with and can't down all that before I start to gag. I'm on day 3 and haven't "eliminated" a whole heck of a lot. Maybe that's the reason? The salt water will make a "2nd appearance", but not in large quantity.
hold your nose, use a straw, it ain't easy but just try to get it all down. on my first cleanse i could barely stomach it (and i can stomach practically anything), but then somebody suggeted celtic grey seal salt and that made ALL the difference in the world. SOOO much easier to get down. though i still usually hold my nose!
no worries! so is this your first cleanse? and lucky you for being on day 3...i am just on day ONE. but i know how bad-ass (in a good way) this thing is so i can't wait to get along with it! how long are ya' going for?
