I don't know if cheating is bad for you...but your stomach may hurt. We are trying to "come off" the cleanse slowly and had broth today to see what would happen (we have 2 days left). Both our stomachs felt so full we couldn't believe it. It will get better after day 5..trust me.
PS: I'm doing this to encourage my Dad, but weight loss is a big plus for me...you are not alone. I've lost 8 pounds and I am on day 6. Somewhere I read (don't quote me) that if you put less syrup in it you will lose more weight. My Dad doesn't want to lose any weight so he puts an extra tbsp. in each serving of lemonade.
