That was pretty much how it worked for me too. Was hungry only a few days. Watching people eat was hard. I had to literally keep a distance and lay low. Stick with it. I felt very proud of myself. I was hoping that post cleanse that my constipation would lessen but it didn't. I decided to start taking Oxypowder and am feeling hopeful. I did lose weight which I didn't really need to lose and bloat. Felt great.
