so i posted on here a little bit earlier and i really appreciate the comment i got before :) |
but i was hoping someone might be able to relate or give me some advice. It is only the first day and about an hr ago i ended up throwing up :( i haven't done the salt water flush or drank any herbal lax. tea (i got both just in case i didn't like the water flush) anyway I have been keeping track of everything in my journal if anyone has time and could maybe take a look at what i have logged so far
anyway, i feel ten times better now but UGH..
Is this normal? or should this be a warning sign that i should stop?
I would really hate to have to stop because i have made it through the first day and I'm feeling very optimistic about everything
(my goal is ten day right now)
I don't know what to tell you. I've done it twice for 10-11 days each time and never got sick or really even felt that awful. Actually, that's not true, the first time, I felt awful for the first few days due to caffeine withdrawal.
I also didn't find the lemonade that gross... it just pretty much tasted like lemonade... maybe scale back on the cayenne? It shouldn't be overly spicy. Also, try to not let it sit too long as the cayenne gets stronger as it steeps.
i think it was the fact that i was making all eight glasses at once for the day and that cayenne was just sitting at the bottom of my jug and everytime i poured a glass it was AWFUL! but i made single glasses today and it does just taste like lemonade lol (different from any lemonade im used to but not bad at all lol)
i used to make all 8 glasses in the morning due to being away from home all day, and it generally worked fine, although it definitely did taste better when i made them one at a time. also, i've read that one at a time is better because when it's really fresh, there's more of the good stuff in it or something, but i forget the details (sorry!)
Every time I've done any kind of cleanse (Mastercleanse twice for 12-14 days, 2 day water fasts, sundry juice fasts), the first 3-4 days are AWFUL. I've never had nausea but my energy level is in the toilet, I pass out on the couch, I have zero mental ability, and I have insomnia when I try to go to sleep. I frequently get a cold sore or breakouts in the first week. I think of 10000 reasons to stop the fast.
All of that passes by day 4-5 and then the euphoria kicks in. And then you feel amazing and you never want to stop the cleanse and your energy comes back times 1000 and it's generally fantastic.
Hang in there, try adding some pure water and maybe some mint or fasting tea to the mix. Dehydration is one of the big reasons for people feeling crappy on a fast/cleanse!
Good luck! I'm on day 2 of a planned 30-day juice cleanse, so I can definitely relate. In fact...I think I'll go have a nap.
Thanks for the comment! :) I am doing ten times better today, still tired but its only day two.
