I did the first one for a medical condition. It was that or get a colonoscopy. I chose the fast! It worked extremely well. I noticed then that I had lost weight and was delighted with that. So then I tried it for that purpose. I generally lose 2 pounds a day and then at the end I put back about 4 when all is said and done. Coming out of it slowly and carefully is essential for me. Lots of tiny meals with easily digestible foods and work my way back to regular foods and meals.
Some I did only water and some I occasionally did 5 cups of water with 1/4 of a cup of juice mixed in for flavour. My mouth was soooo incredibly bored! It was important to me to last the time I had set out and that was what it took.
Hope that helps
