Will I feel sick or miserable during the detox?
Most people feel much better almost immediately upon starting the Total Shake because it supplies many of the nutrients their body needs for normal function. However, there are people who experience undesirable symptoms, such as: fatigue, nausea, headaches, weakness, lethargy, and sometimes diarrhea. If that happens to you it is important for you to know why, because the general rule is - the worst you feel, the more you need to do it. Remember, if you have not felt well for a long time, or you are overweight, or have some chronic illness, your body is probably not functioning very well. Your bodymay be addicted to sugar, caffeine, large meals, foods, or more. When you start any detox program you are eliminating daily habits that your body has gotten used to over the years. It can be similar to someone who stops drinking alcohol after 20 years of normal use. They will feel horrible for quite some time before they feel the benefit from quitting. What would happen to them if they quit the detox? They would be right back where thay started or worse. So, stick with it. You may need to extend your detox for another 21 days if necessary. Just make sure to keep your doctor informed of any difficulty you are having and follow their advice.
Will I be hungry?
Not usually. You might miss chewing food, but people find that the Total Shake is quite filling. If you are hungry, then you may drink up to 8 shakes the first 3 days but, please do not add additional food.
Will I ever get used to the chalky and bland taste of Total Shake?
Usually the transition onto the Total Shake program is smooth and most people like the taste. However, there is a small percentage of people who find the texture and the taste not to their liking at first. These people have a habit of eating foods with a high sugar, salt and fat content regularly, and they are usually not as healthy as they would like to be. Because of this they are usually not as healthy as they would like to be. Because of this, they are used to food tasting a certain way and are looking for instant gratification and pleasure from all their meals. If this happens to you, just make sure to remind yourself of the purpose for doing the program. You have made the decision to take the steps to improve your health. Stick to your guns - you have made the right decision. The key is to follow the program exactly; regardless of the taste or texture. You will find that agyter a few days of cleansing that your body will adjust to its improved health and you will start to enjoy the taste of the shake. It may be hard to believe but you will most likely look forward to having your daily shakes not only for the health content but also for the flavor; so stick with it.
What about bowel movements? Will I feel "constipated" while on the Total Shake?
It is important to have at least one bowel movement daily while on the Total Shake since this is a major way toxins are eliminated from your body. However, people have been mislead to believe that they should have several large bowel movements every day. A bowel movement is simply the body eliminating waste. Because people eat so poorly, they don't absorb their food. They end up with a toxic, putrefying intestine filled with unabsorbed food, which leads to excessively large bowel movements to get rid of all the waste. Total Shake is designed to give your body the nutrients it needs for normal metabolism and energy production. It is close to being a perfect food and your body should absorb almost all of it. Therefore, very little waste is produced and you may find that your bowel movements are smaller and less frequent. In most cases this is not constipation but is a normal intestinal response to low amounts of waste. Let's face it. If there is a small amount of waste then your bowel movements will be small. They will mostly contain the toxins and putrefied foods that are being eliminated because of the cleanse.
If I have trouble sleeping during the detox, what should I do?

Should I exercise during the Total Shake program?
Yes. It is a good idea to exercise while on the program. Take it very easy throughtout the time you are detoxifying, because it is likely you may have reduced energy and stamina. Also, this is not the time to become Superman. You are undergoing a detox program, and the body needs its strength. A good rule is to involve yourself in 20 minutes of light aerobic activity.
