    Well I started lighterlife total 5 days ago and must admit Ive been STARVING ! and just been hoping and praying that ketosis kicks in and the hunger subsides :cry: Up to now Im still gettin hunger pangs , but nothin like I was expecting .

    I know it takes everyone different lengths of time to go into ketosis , but I was just wondering when do the hunger pangs go away ?? as they are the only things that are gettin me down

    I have alot of weight to loose and feel like this is my last resort and my only option so I need to do this !

    Any advice would be very helpful , just to hear from others who are going through the same as me :wave_cry:

    Hi allymc - I'm on day 7. The hunger pangs almost disappeared yesterday, but this afternoon they're back with a vengeance, so I'm hoping someone can give us both some good news! Don't forget you're not alone, there are a few of us started last week. We CAN do this! :)

    It seems to be a bit different for everyone so don't lose heart! Usually another peppermint tea or a hot drink helps for me, I'm hoping I'm just having an off day. My first weigh in is tonight, not sure if I'm looking forward to it or not now :\

    hey allymc. im on day 5 too. ive done lighterlife last year but didnt do RTM. so i gained abit again, im in the process of getting what i gained off but believe me the first week is by far the most difficult.
    i dont know if its psychological or what but after the HUGE weightloss ull have in ur first week the hunger pangs do go away.... dunno if its because your right in ketosis or just the determination to NOTthink about food after that massive loss but it does get easier after week one.
    apart from the hunger, how are you finding it?

    good luck for your WI 2nyt lucy4loop. let me know how u get on. xx

    hi , well thats good to hear , as its mainly the hunger thing that im finding difficult ! To be honest its more strange than hard , just not eating , its weird !

    To be honest Im finding it easier than I am figuring out how to use this site , haha

    But seriously its looking towards my first weigh in thats keeping me going , Im not looking at it as a 14/16 week program Im just lookign at it from week to week , think that way It will be easier for my brain to deal with , if you know wot I mean x

    you need to do so many posts i dunno how many but i just kept going to edit avatar and one day it was there!!
    even whe you have one bar per day your still in ketosis. and the chilli has the same value as any other sachet. you could have 4 per day if you like.
    the forest fruits is lovely and id reccomend u try it hot.... mmmm. the st clements is good 2 but i do prefer that hot to cold.xx

    oooooh I've never thought of having fruits of forest hot and I'm on week 7! Is it like ribena?!

    Would agree with everyone else first week is definitely the worst. But the good news is the hunger pangs do subside alot - especially if you up your water intake :D
