Not Just a Food Journal -
OK I have placed my order and will be starting this on Monday
any help and advice will be more than welcome
I would like to know if there is a group of people on here that have formed a buddy group - if so can I join if not is there anyone that would like a new buddy H x
I cannot believe that a new diary has had 57 views and not one response
looks like I might be doing this on my own
so first proper entry
yesterday I went low carb and will be doing that over the weekend as well - this I am hoping will stop the process of going into ketosis being to noticable (headaches etc)
I am also out today to get some vitamins Bcomplex and D with calcium just to makes sure I have adequate especially of vitB12 as I am always borderline low on that particular vitamin
I am still wondering which would be best
having ONLY packs or having packs and a low carb meal
and should I split the packs so I can have more 'meals' a day
advice on those two issues by people having done the plan or those who are doing it would be extremely valuable
it seems a bit quiet on here at the moment. I tend to read more then post, but thought I'd say hi.
I've been on plan for 3 weeks now. I lost 8lbs the first week and haven't weighed since, I'm trying to trust in the diet. I can obsess if I weigh too often.
As for which plan. I tend to mix things up. Although do use lifestyle days when I'm at work. Usually having a big salad and half a bag of s&s crisps.
i haven't split any packs personally. I sometimes struggle to get 4 in now I'm in ketosis to be honest.
My tip- sugar free jelly is great to have in for when I get the nibbles (i.e bored!)
The first time I did this I just did 4 packs a day and lost all the weight but found it a very emotional journey when I could finallly eat food again and hence put weight back on. This time around I am doing 3 packs and a meal with veg allowance and I am finding it totally fine. I am pretty sure you shouldn't split the packs because your body needs to not be eating every few hours but I am no expert so don't take my word on that. They say try and space the packs out is what I thought. My tip is drink lots of water, I average 3 litres a day. Good luck, it is very quiet on here but there are a few of us around.

Wrote a long post thanking you for your support
I have been low carb for one day and have lost a pound of water weight or is natural fluctuation
tomorrow I plan on
then off to do my voluntary stint - art group with dementia sufferers
then for lunch another shake
dinner will be small protein with veggies - not sure on what veggies I can have as I cant find a list BUT am having asparagus and mushrooms - if that is wrong its day one so not the end of the world and can get different veg for later in the week
in the evening I will have a final shake or bar depending how much I need what will feel like a treat
hoping low carbing yesterday and today will mean it will take less time to get into ketosis so wont be feeling hungry
will report in with first day feeling etc tomorrow evening
have a great week everyone
oh I will be weighing on Mondays and Fridays (used to be a daily weigher and cant wait for a whole week - if the plan works for me after two weeks I will move to weekly weigh ins)
Asparagus(tips only) and mushrooms are fine. Hope your low carb will mean you sail the first few days. I was ok, just a little dizzy on about day 3. Just had more to drink and I was fine. I think. Some recommend adding salt to packs if that happens.
good luck, sure you'll do great
thanks for the confirmation of the foods - as for tips only I never eat more than the tips
and I see you lost 8lb on your first week - thats fantastic - hope I see a similar result on the first week as I know on a regular plan weeks 2-3 seem to be quite hard for me on a psychological level - will need to keep busy I have loads of art prep I need to do to take stuff on holiday with me
and YES I am away for two weeks but will still be sticking as closely to S and S as I can - my meals may change round and I might have eggs for breakfast with mushrooms and spinach for breakfasts as I will be doing walking so might just need that full feeling - but will see how I go
Just popping by to say hi and good luck with it. There is a little challenge thread with a mixture of people doing different plans if you fancy joining. Its just for two weeks 100% on plan. http://www.minimins.com/cambridge-di...1-05-14-a.html (2 WEEK 100% CHALLENGE (Start: 11/05/14))
Thank you just added myself to the list = will be updating it for my start weight tomorrow - this is just what I need I find the second and third weeks to be psychologically difficult so to have the challenge to cover my week two is brilliant
I will b addin masslf to the thread first thing tues too x
right day one of s and s
having low carbed for a couple of days I am hoping it will help
will let you all know what the first day is like during this evening - unless I find it really hard then will come back for support and to take my mind off food for a while - I have a feeling I will need to remind myself WHY I need to do this
Good luck. Hour by hour if necessary. Drink plenty and it's definitely a good idea to write down why you're doing this.
well I have had my first disaster typical of me really
off I go whizzing the shake with my powerful tri blade turbo = and I wanted to add ice - left whizzer in the jug and got out the ice cubes banged the cube thingy on the work surface and knocked it over
so I had half a shake left - hubby has some whey powder so I added a small amount in to make sure I have the protein
will most likely have a soup for lunch - will whizz that the micro for a short while to bring it up to temperature
