The OJ is for a smooth and gentle transition to more solid foods. I was the one who skipped it, but to be honest, it wasn't the right move because I ended up with a stomach ache after the broth and immediately got a headache. I couldn't handle more citrus at that point, that's why I did it. In retrospect, I should have come off the fast exactly as Burroughs outlines, with a day of fresh OJ.
Glad your results were so awesome! Yeah..you're right about the glands. I just felt for mine and they weren't there.
All the best with coming off the fast, whatever you decide.
