Day 5 has come, not too difficult so far, but tonight will be a test as I go to visit some friends over dinner (none for me they know and are supportive). I plan on taking plenty of lemonade with me so I might be in a maple coma by the time I leave, but I WILL perservere. Today I've started the Clarkiaparasite cleanse (www.sbherbalremedies.com)in conjunction with the Master-Cleanse - it gives the lemonade an interesting clove taste/smell. I'll be adding the Clarkia for the next two weeks, then off for a week, then on for two more weeks and that should see me through to the end of 40 days. BTW - I have lost 9 lbs as of this morning - woohoo!
