It's gotten easier to drink the herbal swill that is step 2. I've noticed that after I choke it down (it works best if you chug it in three giant gulps, though the last gulp is always very textured) I feel a bit bloaty and gurgly so either the stuff is working or it's just my second stomach working on the cud.
Also not sure what I was expecting... a giant leap in energy? The ability to leap tall buildings in a single bound? The ability to not get upset when my kids all go hyper-freako-wild because it's ALMOST CHRISTMAS? Unfortunately none of these things happened. I did have, um, a lot of work in my outbox Saturday morning but nothing unusual since. Except the antlers. I don't normally grow them until AFTER Christmas.
