    Hi all xx

    I've just completed week 2 and on day 2 of week 3... and am struggling big time over last couple of days! Have to admit to having picked and thankfully haven't knocked myself out of ketosis BUT I just want to eat today :(

    Have been drinking water and had a shake about 2 hours ago but am really craving carbs - don't feel hungry, just want food grrrrrrrr

    All help gratefully welcomed!

    Don't do it!! Honestly i put myself out of ketosis and it was a living hell for 3days getting back into it. You may be craving now but times that feeling by 100 and add hunger and thats how bad you'll feel if you give in. Stay strong and remember the way your feeling now will only be heightened if you have those carbs.

    If you must, have another shake now to see you through, thats what i did last night and Linda, a cdc on here siad i'd be fine and i am and it really did the trick.x

    Hi as Airgirl said have another shake, it is better than having something you shouldn't. Have a nice hot mint tea, do something to take your mind off the cravings. Hope all goes well.

    Any chance you are due on? I find that no matter how good I do on this diet, the cravings kick in approaching TOTM.

    Avoid giving into it, its so hard to get back in the zone once you have given in. Have an extra shake today and drink extra water :)

    Hi Ladies - well hopefully I got past the crisis. Took your advice and had soup earlier than usual and guzzling the water... will probably end up having 4 packs instead of 3 today but hey ho, better than binging!

    Thanks for your support peeps xx

    Hi - I am just ahead of you - just ending Day 5 of week 3. I have felt hungry this week so have added in a cup of bouillon in the evening. I have really enjoyed it and found it has definitely taken the edge off my appetite and its nice to have something different. You buy it with the stock cubes and you are allowed one teaspoon a day in a mug of hot water - CDCs sell a CD version too. Either that or have another shake or even half a shake - I have had a half shake when I have felt really hungry too. Keep goingx
