Wild Rose Detox and weight loss

I spent 12 days doing the Wild Rose detox. It basically consists of taking 12 pills a day plus about 60 drops of some liquid that some people find pretty nasty tasting. Surprisingly, there's a lot of foods you can eat, and you won't starve provided you like fish. In a nutshell, this is what you can NOT eat:
Fermented products (vinegar, soy, wine, ketchup)

In case you're wondering, yes, you are allowed two cups of coffee, but no cream or sugar or milk. just black.
There are other specific items that you can not have, like no bananas or peanuts. To be honest with you, the hardest part for me was the no alcohol. I don't even drink that much, but come on, it's summer. there's so many barbecues going on.. The first three days were tough cause there's a lot of that having to go to bathroom. But after the first three days, you feel pretty good. And on top of that, I lost 8 pounds. Yes, 8 pounds. And I was eating a lot. Someone told me it is just water weight, and they might be right, but I felt friggin awesome, and I looked like a million bucks. Right after that I went to Vegas, and pretty much pigged out at the buffets every day.. so kind of defeated the purpose. But will definitely be doing this detox again. It's about $32 to buy. and surprisingly, it seems only Canadians do it. Oh yeah, how can I forget this, my allergies went away after I did this. seriously, well, actually, they came back, but not as severe as before. (i'm allergic to dust, mould, grass, you name it).
I have a confession to make, I cheated on it. Knowingly. I ate some seafood with black bean sauce on it which is not allowed.. Fish is fine, but no shellfish.. i felt pretty bad after I did that, but I still turned out okay.. I think..

I bought the kit at a health food store in North Vancouver which I don't recommend, I don't remember the name so I can't even unrecommend it.. All they try to do is sell you a bunch of crap without any good explanation on why you should buy it.
The reason I got the Wild Rose detox is because I know several people that did it, and they had pretty good results.
