so you have been drinking the amount in the book and you haven't had any bowel movements? that must be really uncomfortable. are you heating the quart of water? are you using non-iodized Sea Salt ? i don't know how it relates to urine color as i am not a doctor but you do sound like you are very healthy. and you are doing it in the am. are you drinking the lax tea at night? i usually eliminate just from the lax tea and then again after the SWF. i always end up with butt pee as they call it. not very pleasant smelling but it ends up being clear at the end. that is when i know that i am done, well that and i stop eliminating!
