    Hi everyone

    Came across another dilema in my head today, what happens when you are on LL and have to cook for teenagers and hubby. My hubby said he will cook for first week but his job has become more busy. Does anyone have any tips on this. :rolleyes:

    Once I am in ketosis it does not worry me but the first week I cook as simply as possible.

    In ketosis I enjoy cooking although I am not going to eat the food. Some say cook things you dont particularly like.

    I've been on LL for 3 days now and have cooked everyday. I think there is no point hiding away from food , You just have to get used to it, it seems that everywhere you look there's food. I haven't really found it that bad though, the smell is lovely and does the trick for me!

    Lola don't worry about it, it's not as bad as you think it will be. I've do more cooking when I'm on the diet than I do when I'm not - my hubby and kids think it's great as they're getting much better meals.

    Hi Lola

    the first 2 weeks I cooked stuff that I don't like and then it just doesn't bother me now, like others have said, I cook more now than before and healthier meals too.

    I think you will be just fine.

    I cook for them and it is easy. Just cook things you don't like and don't be tempted to 'try' a nibble 3)

    I have a bth when they are eating - or if its something in the oven I will clear off and leave them to dish up!
