thanks for putting the excerpt from the book in. i was talking with my hubby yesterday about drinking water. he drinks lots and i only drink around a cup directly after the SWF (Salt-Water-Flush) as i feel thirsty right after i drink it. i was going to read the book again because i thought i remembered that stanley burroughs said it was ok to just drink lemonade and that is mostly what i do with the exception of an occasional spearmint or peppermint tea every day or so. (and the lax tea at night) you have beem most helpful.
