I started the master cleanse a week ago and made it to day 5. Then I did the SWF and it made me feel really sick. Not the bowel movement part, but the dehydration and my stomach afterwards. I even drank like 10 glasses of water to try and help. SO I ended up eating some soup and a bun and got discouraged. I have been off of it (I did the OJ phase and soup and everything) and have been eating solid foods since Friday. Is it okay to jump back on and start over? Or should I wait a while. I really love this diet. I lost so much weight even in the first 4 days, and a lot of my cravings are gone. Please help! I only plan to do the cleanse for the 10 days, 14 at most.

It's one of those things you have to feel out for yourself. Each time you try it, listen to your body, and you'll know what to do. Perhaps you weren't ready quite yet.
Try again when you feel the time is right. You will remember how disappointed you felt by giving in, and it will be easier to continue on.
If you can't do the salt water flush, then make sure you drink lots of laxative tea. As long as you're moving your bowels once a day.
Try the salt water again in the future, and you will eventually be able to do it. I drink it warm and pretend it's soup.
Just remember, the first fast is the most difficult as you are releasing tons of toxins.
