Hi all,

I started SS on Monday and have not deviated even a little bit ( Quite proud of myself actually!) :p However I am a wee bit confused.... since starting SS I have had little to no hunger pangs.... I have not felt cold (Other than the normal amount that I would) to put it simply I have felt no different from any normal time!m (other than the fact that I am rapidly losing weight!)

Have I gone into Ketosis? (Can't get to a chemist to buy strips) I do have a foul taste in my mouth, but had that since Monday! Has my body gone into Ketosis really quickly or is it rejecting Ketosis.... Also I have a streaming cold and sore throat... CDC Said no to lemsip... are herbal teas ok on SS?

Thanks for any responses... I am doing this completly on my own and could use a buddy if anyone fancies one?

I can do this.
hi u may be on the verge of ketosis, but as long as the weight is coming off thats great. I think u can have pepermint tea, not sure about any others, some one else may know. gongrats on ur w.loss so far.
Hiya Hun, Fab loss x

Ok, dont worry about Ketosis, if you are doing the diet right, and the weight is coming off, then weeing on as tick will not make the blindest bit of difference.

I had no hunger pangs either, not the proper ones, just the ones that my mouth felt hungry but my body didn't!!

You are doing this right, make sure you drink the water and you'll crack it x

Herbal/fruit teas are not permitted on CD as it's not possible to check what's in them and they may contain sugars/fructose which could take you out of ketosis.

Stick to any tea made from a leaf (including peppermint) and you'll be fine :)
Hi LucyLu,

My friend and I started SSing on Monday also, today we are both in Ketosis according to the ketostix. I can't speak for my friend but I have also found it relatively easy this week with only a few tummy rumbles on Tuesday, totally fine since then but luckily I have a very supportive Hubby and I haven't needed to go anywhere near the kitchen since I started.

I want to lose 4 stone, how about you?

I also want to lose 4 Stone.... my weight has crept up slowly over the last year or so and when I started I was 15st 2lbs... I weighed myself this morning and I was 14st 3lbs.... so I am really chuffed that I have almost lost a stone in 2 weeks!!!

I am really struggling at th e moment though as I have a cold and sore throat and all I want to do is curl up in a ball and drink milky tea with choccie biscuits! but I will power on!

It sounds really good that you are doing it with a friend and thumbs up to the hubby... My partner is being as supportive as he can but works really long hours so I still have to cook his dinner! Not sure how many more meals I can think of that he likes and I don't (It's easier that way!)

Let me know how your weigh in goes on monday!
