What qualifies as a large meal? I take enzymes at the beginning of meals. I don't take HCL. Aren't there instructions on your bottles?

Large meals are lunch and dinner and anything after 7PM.
There are instructions but i usually research on the net for different options.
I take Betaine HCL and Pepsin, kefir , Digestive enzymes, Cutlure vegetables, liver flush once a month and do enemas.
From only taking these products for only a few days I have already seen quite a few improvements. I know I could probably be better with the diet plan that came with it, however, now I am at 120 (from 135), but, I do follow pretty good. I am a little worried of losing too much weight.
The improvements I have seen are feeling an overall betterness, my dark circles are starting to lighten up ( a problem I have had for years), my digestive system has improved probably at least 25-30% and even the appearance of my tongue is about 45% better (used to be white).
My skin is glowing/clearing/smoothing. For awhile, my face looked well-aged.. I just didn't look 19, I looked like I was 21-22, which isn't so good for a 19-year old. But lately, my face is glowing!! My eyes are brighter, no more eye bags, my skin is ridding itself of acne and has this nice, rosey color that I've never ever had in my life. My fine lines and creases have also gone away!!!! And strangely enough, I swear that my lips and cheeks are even plumper. Especially my lips, I can't believe it when I look in the mirror. Is liver cleansing good for collagen production or something?

I usually take enzymes and HCl before the meal or just as I start to eat. I've heard that you can still take enzymes after you've eaten, but it probably doesn't give you as much benefit.

Where did you get your HCL? I've never been able to find it. Thanks :)

I think the one I use is DigestMore HCl by Renew Life. It's got HCl plus enzymes. I found it at a local natural foods supermarket (Choices). I think the Renew Life brand is pretty widely available. Whole Foods carries it, I believe.

Thank you so much for letting me know! I guess I need to open my eyeballs and look harder. It was probably in front of my face the whole time ;)
