Just wondering about your take on how much water to drink and if it does actually help with weight loss as some sources suggest? As well, I started my new protocol just on a week. The first 5 days were pretty smooth sailing- no cravings or symptoms of withdrawal then on day 7 my hunger hit me like a freight train. I could have eaten anything that wasn’t nailed down! I would have thought the first few days would be harder….. Why is this, in your opinion?
