Hmmm. I hadn't read that part about rinsing before and waiting 30 minutes after, and my doctor hasn't said that. I'm not disputing you, but can you give me a source for your information?

I should also add that my weight loss greatly accelerated when I started adding more vegetables and moved beyond induction levels of carbs. Don't assume that OWL means slower losses.
