    I picked up a copy of "Nerys and India's Idiot Proof Diet". It looks good and I've enjoyed reading it, but I was wondering if anyone else has done/doing it. If so, how's it going?

    The book is really based on Atkins/ general low carb principles, so most people on this and the Atkins board are doing a version. I've done their version before but needed slightly stricter rules for myself.

    Hi Shellyb,
    Congratulations on your progress! thats fantastic. I havent started it yet. Because it's mentioned that you can feel quite crap during the first week I'm waiting till my annual leave on the 20th, so I'll have maximum time to lay down and feel sorry for myself. How did you find the first week? I need something easy but I'm definately worried that I wont stick to it. I have 2 stone to lose, and it does seem good. I just hope I carry it through. I'm a bit like Nerys!
    Any keep up the good work! Hopefully I will be joining you soon x

    Hiya I felt fine the 1st week to be honest I was just really positive I drank loads of water I did get an awful taste in my mouth after 2 days like I'd been sucking on copper but apparently that's ketosis which is good x I did feel a bit shitty on day 4 but not that bad but I think the horrible feeling is due to caffine withdrawl which I didn't drink a lot of anyway x I made sure I had loads of my fav foods the day before I started and really pigged out ! I have found this week pretty hard week 3 I'm still sticking to the iduction till I've lost the bulk of my weight and this week I've hardly had an appitite and felt quite sickly maybe xoz it's t.o.m x I keep smelling my kids sweets and crisps and they don't smell appitising at all now which is good x let me know how u get on I've lost 10 lbs in 3 weeks but I was hoping for slightly more I can't tell yet but my target is getting closer and closer :) I have really stuck to this n not cheated once I've read the book till I know it off by heart and read some every bight in my 1st 2 weeks for inspiration I usually give up or cheat after a few days so I'm well chuffed x x good luck again x x

    I had no idea. I think I'd feel more ill coming off caffeine than you do pre-ketosis. Thanks!
