So far not not bad for me. Ive mentioned before that I had horrible eating habits and meat was a main part of my diet. I definitely jumped into this cleanse and didnt just ease into it. The only symptoms I have so far are headaches and low energy. I feel pretty fortunate for only these symptoms. Time will tell what else I will experience.

I am pretty sure I am doing this cleanse correctly. Separating my fruits from veggies when eating and drinking lots of water. Reading everyone else's posts makes me feel like Im doing something wrong.

Sounds like you are doing the cleanse correctly...keep on going.

So far, I feel fine and can not believe it's been three days already.  I lost 5lbs since Monday...could be water weight.

I've lost some weight too, but that's not really the point of this diet right? It's just an added bonus? lol

I go through a lot of emotional detox when I'm really disciplined about raw food. It feels really good to be able to cry so freely. I've been known to get a little dizzy and fatigued, but the emotional detox is the most intense.

I figured I had the juice aspect wrong. I think a gas station here makes fruit smoothies, so maybe I will check that out tomorrow. Today I felt awful. I ate a lot of organic grapes yesterday. I had no idea they would clean me out quite so much. I'm hoping to feel better soon. I feel pretty discouraged at this point with how my body feels. I know I just need to push through it though.

I am feeling no detox symptoms yet...I am anxious awaiting....  When I first went raw, 3 years ago, I did it from day 1 from sad to raw 100%, and the symptoms were not that bad.  I was expecting worse.  I also did a 29 day water fast to help with some major , major medical issues, and again, I did not have that much for issues, other than being tired(LOL).  I have done 3 colon cleanse 5 day fasts, and the worst I got was bad breath.. :-\Why is it that the symptoms are not as others share?  Is the body just going slowly?

I am certainly getting cleaned out this morning. 5 times before 8:30am! I feel weak now. Sorry, but it's hard to talk about a cleanse without mentioning bowel movements.  I'm going to have some coconut water to replenish.

It is interesting how different people experience different things at different times. I also went from SAD to raw vegan in one day, just over 3 years ago. I have never gone back to meat. The detox symptoms were not as bad as the cravings. I remember on day 13 fantasizing about pasta. It was literally every 30 seconds to a minute, an image would go through my head and I would salivate. This lasted for several hours and I thought I was going to lose my mind. But I pushed through it.

Another side effect (or perk) of being raw is weight loss. The first time I did, I lost a pound a day for a month. It got to the point where I was getting worried that it would never end. But your body seems to know its optimal weight. One day it just leveled off and I didn't lose anymore weight.

Some bodies are more toxic than others.
Some immune systems are stronger.
Genetics does play a key role as well
as other factors such as emotional,
physical, and spiritual states of being.

Today has been the best day for me so far! I guess i'm starting to push past the symptoms, because I woke up this morning with no headache and an extra bounce in my step!  Can't wait to see how much better I feel as this cleanse continues!

I have a headache again today and a little sore throat...feel like I am getting a cold or flu? How do I know the difference? If it is me getting sick or detox symptoms?

My husband was just asking....since this is his very first time eating RAW(he started Monday with me).....If numerous Bowel Movements per day are normal? He is also not feeling well. Headache, tired, nausea...

I think I answered this at Mother's today.  This is completely normal and proves that your husband is getting the toxins out.  More bowel movements than food consumed shows that he is excreted built up mucoid plaque in his intestines.  Google mucoid plaque for more information.

It's finally hit me...it feels like a cold.  I am sneezing
and my throat is sore.  I thought I was going to
get away with no detox until next week...
This part is definitely not fun but worth it.

Hope everyone is feeling better....
