I started using Deflect for about a week now. While I did not have dizziness or issues as mentioned by others, I am going through a detox of my own.

Background:
GTD 100% compliant from March 2011 to April
*Lost water weight initially
*Vitamin deficiency caused my appetite to increase so My GTD portion was HUGE
*Stopped GTD due to injuries and not being able to even use cutlery to eat

Back to GTD 100% since late June 2011
Deflect as of July 1, 2011

Detox Symptoms:
Achy body pains
Fatigue
Thickening mucus (but no sinus pain or asthma) while lungs feel clear
Malodorus sweat
*Sweat was so nasty smelling, I dry bushed, then used same dry brush with soap, used shower pouf to soap again, then used exfoliating shower gloves (rough fabric to get rid of dead skin)
     *I think the exfoliating glove set off a stronger lymphatic response than just dry brushing alone (which I have been doing every day)... Felt really tired after the shower, feverish, and only wanted to drink water. Was only able to have fruit with a tiny bit of cheese for dinner afterwards. Woke up feeling much better, not hungry, still slightly achy.
*Decreased appetite - since the vitamin deficiency resolved itself, my body is not forcing me to eat more (the body increases the appetite during deficiencies hoping that the person will eat and eat and pick up the deficient vitamins along the way)
    * decreased appetite means my body is finally going back to normal and controlling portions
*Itchy skin and hives in certain places

I am feeling much better but realize that I need to be gentler with my body during detox. I am not workig out as much as I did before I started on Deflect. Still a bit tired. Mental clarity has improved by tons. Although my appetite decreased, I make sure to eat 100% compliant foods that are lighter (salads, etc.) so my body has energy to work with. My body wants tons of water, too... So I am letting my "cravings" guide me.

Going through this, I became curious about detox symptoms. Found a site that explain things:

I thought I would share this so newbies will know what to expect.

Detox symptoms vary depending on several things...  subject's health when starting, the amount of garbage subject needs to clear out, the level of compliance subject is willing/able to maintain, etc...  

I'm not sure this is a complete list - but these are ones I know have affected my detox...

ABJoe - Definitely! Just wanted to write about symptoms. Massaging the lymphatic gland area while exfoliating sped things up for me.

I am still in awe over the diet and the healing process.
