I lost about 12 pounds and gained half of it back. I only did it for six days because I started to get paranoid that my body would start pulling nutrients out of my muscles and I got what I needed from it which was a clean slate. The weird thing was, and this may be kinda gross, but even though the body cleanses itself with liver, kidneys, waste, etc, I had corn coming out around the 5th day, and I hadn't eaten corn in a number of weeks. A lot of stuff, I realized, stays for awhile, so I felt that I did get flushed and did it to the point that I had nothing left to come out and that was when I stopped. The fourth day was the hardest, I reintroduced food with flavored broths and then softened veggies and it was okay. I only did the salt flush for two days because it was awful and I also did the tea but only for about four days. The cramping became too much after I had flushed out solids so I stopped that, and two days later stopped altogether because I didn't think I needed it longer. I drank water and tea, it was mainly a mind of matter thing, which was empowering in the end, because what you will yourself to do can be incredible. I did it once a year ago, since I have eaten well and am doing a triathlon this summer, so I'm training and on a well balanced meal plan. I survived it, had a fresh start, and stuck with good food choices afterwards. Good luck!
