I anticipated pressure and negativity, so I've kept very quiet about doing the cleanse. I only told my husband and my closest friend. No family, and no one at work. People have seen me mixing the lemonade in the office kitchen, and my boss even asked me "What the heck are you drinking?" I'm just telling everyone that it's "a natural juice drink that's good for my kidneys" (I had a huge stone surgically removed a few months ago)
That seems to satisfy them without prompting any negative comments-- and it's not a complete lie. I don't even mention that it's a fast, so I think they're assuming that I'm drinking it in addition to meals, not instead of food.
I also timed the cleanse for days when I had few social activities scheduled, hoping I'd feel less tempted and deprived.
It's been a good plan, so far. Day 9 and going strong!
