    On my 3rd day now...and am sure i have the atkins flu symptoms...yukkkk.
    My head is hurting and i feel shattered...think my leg muscles have turned into ten ton weights and have decided to give up when wanting to walk lollll
    Am gunna persevere though and am sooo hoping this wont last to long.
    At least im in ketosis though since i checked with the sticks.
    Anybody have any ideas on anything to help with the syptoms...or do u just need to wait for it to pass.

    Well onto day four now and am feeling crappolaaaaa today.
    Got up this morning after sleeping for 9 hours (yes 9 hours) and felt soooo awful after an hour i was back on the sofa asleep again.

    Feel very lethargic today and my head is killing me, and all my limbs are aching like mad, have spent much of the day wallowing in self pity on the sofa lollllll, as ive had no energy to do anything at all.

    Ended up having an atkins phase indulgence bar :eek: (even though i dont agree with having them)...bcoz i knew if i didnt that i was going to derail all my efforts this week.
    Its coming up to that ToTM for me and the sugar cravings have been a nightmare to cope with this week, so instead of heading straight for the choccies and biscuits i did the best thing i could and had one of these instead...so am hoping it doesnt knock me out of ketosis as ive been very good apart from this one indulgence.

    Thanks for that k.k.
    Yes im hoping tomorrow will be better.
    But just hoping that atkins choccy bar hasnt knocked me off track, still its gotta be better than going on an all out binge of normal chocolate and biscuits which is what i would normally do !!!!

    Keep the water going! It really helps.
    Mine lasted three days but I was a whirlwind after that. It doesn't last forever so bear with it. Just remember how it feels now and be sure not to knock yourself out of ketosis and have to go through it again. Good luck sweetie.

    I had a couple of atkins bars last week and didnt realise until after I'd eaten them that one of them was not for induction!! I was so mad with myself for not checking, but it didnt throw me out of ketosis or stall me thank god. I like to keep the bars handy incase I wake up one morning and cannot bear the thought of another egg lol
