    Hi All,

    I have done 1 week of RTM, and I am finding that I am getting hungry over the last 2 days (days 6 and 7)...

    I'm no longer in ketosis, and am getting physically hungry at some points during the day and I have to have an extra food pack or two to see me through...

    Hunger symptoms include: feintness; lethargy; tiredness... I'm pretty sure (after 30 weeks on abstinance) that is isn't psycological or emotional hunger...

    I do excercise (2mile jog) 3 times a week... maybe that is making my calorie needs slightly higher?

    Has anybody else had to top up their first few weeks of RTM food intake?

    Cheers

    Hi All,

    Now I'm on Week 3 of RTM, It's starting to balance out now - I'm getting enough calories (and ever so slightly up'd my portions) in the day to stop me feeling slightly feint (or grumpy - another symptom of hunger I wasn't aware of before! Interesting...) but am still losing weight (1 or 2 lbs per week - that was part of my plan and goal).

    Looking forward to introducing new foods as the week's progress :) and finding the right balance of calorie intake to maintain my weight.

    Regards,

    Mr. Mini Me.
