Great to hear that there's someone else like me out there who plans to stick to the original MC. I just don't know about these B&P shakes. Who's to say that these things don't turn black inside of you and that's what everyone's calling plaque? Or maybe I'll experience this plaque later on in the diet?? Don't know. I'm on day 3 now and still no sign of anything solid coming out. I'm glad you cleared me up on the diarrhea/loose bm's. It doesn't burn so I'm okay I think. Thanks again!!!
