Body shrinking and water questions


I am on CD end of day 3. All going well. Oriental Chilli flavour soup is DIVINE (or is it just that I am ravenous?)

I just want some feedback from others about experiencing the body shrinking..I am feeling little twinges on my arms and thighs..is this the fat burning in process? Or some other reason? It actually feels like a tiny 'shrinkage' when it happens..don't know how else to describe this. Is this normal? Will it continue for the next four weeks while on sole source, i.e. around 550cals/day? Can anyone else describe the physical process so I know what I might expect.

Water..can someone tell me the science behind 'drink to shrink' ..why drinking 6 litres as opposed to say, 2 litres gets the fat off more swiftly?:confused:


ps I posted this on VLCD forum also

Hi Joinedupwriting!

To be honest with you I'm not sure about the twinges, I've been doing SS (3 packs a day) for a month today (I've just noticed that!) I often get weird little twinges and flinches all the time so I wouldn't really notice :) but hopefully it is our bodies fighting fat lol.

Water helps flush all the "bad" out of your system as far as I'm aware, a pro will be along soon and give you all the facts on it I bet... but basically keep sticking to the water because it really helps the hunger pains - even takes them away!

You'll start to notice the weight loss very soon I know that much.

Good luck & all the best! :)
Water helps flush the ketones out of your system.Also most of us don't drink nearly enough fluid so the body will then seek to retain fluid to keep itself hydrated;Weigh yourself then drink a couple of pints of water. Then weigh yourself again and see how much that "retained fluid" weighs



is gonna shine in 2009
