Hi Alexalgebra – so glad I commented cuz you alerted me to what I’ve been doing wrong. I’ve been so sick that I wasn’t paying attention to the program and didn’t know the forum was part of the diet section. I also thought Stage 2 foods were part of the detox. Wow, I was messed up. Now I understand what to do and I’m glad I started on the Stage 2 foods to ease myself into the detox stage. I did have a very hard time as I am already very skinny and after the Liver flush drink, I threw up severly. I was only able to manage about 4 days on detox. Anyway, I really think there should be a pre-detox stage to get people off sugar & caffeine as that is a very hard stage. Wish me luck!
