day 1!

#1
just mixed up half a vanilla shake and it was gorgeous!!!
was so worried after reading some comments that id hate it,but no,its lovely,it has a real taste to it,not that sweat sickly taste that slimfast and some other shakes have,hope the soups are just as yummy!!

im feeling really positive and although i can see myself smoking more than i already do out of boredem i think its best to tackle one problem at a time :)

i dont usually eat when im hungry,i eat when im bored! so im hoping this diet will sort that out too! and get me into a routine!

any tips you guys have for new starters would really help.
and im soo lucky i found this site,i just need to make sure i go on here everyday and read your inspirational posts!

a few questions ............

bouillon-im assuming ill be able to find this in asda and places like that,but could someone please let me know what different types of brands we can have of it,coz if im right its a type of stock?(sorry if i seem a tad simple) lol also how much are we allowed to have a day?

also- exercise,is it okay to exercise straight away on this type of diet?as iv heard some vlcd's you have to give it atleast a week for your body to get used to the low cals? im using ts by the way :)


edit___ooooh,also,does anyone know how much ketostix are from a chemist?would it be cheaper to just order off the net or isnt there too much difference?

thanks guys!
love sarah xxxxx

Hi Sarah and welcome to Exante you are in exactly the right place for some support. Bouillion is a type of veg stock I get mine from Tesco's and it is Marigold swiss vegtable. As for the exercise I believe that once you are in ketosis it is ok to exercise but don't hold me to that. Ketostix are about £4/£5 a pot from the chemist but they always refer to thier little book and quote a price which is never exactly the same so the internet might be a better option.
Good luck and let us all know how you get on. xx

thankyou bernice,im really looking forward to trying the vegetable stock,it sounds yummy.
have you used to ketostix?if so did you find them helpful?
iv never felt so positive,but i know it will get hard!!and even if im having bad days i know i need to write on here,when iv used this site with weightwatchers or atkins iv always just avoided it while i had my binges,im hoping i come on here before a binge!!!!!X

...........I think initially ketostix are helpful but like all things I think they can become a bit of a obsession if you are not careful. My own personal opinion is that if you are doing it right you will be in ketosis so you don't need to test or weigh yourself everyday. However, I also know that some people need to see with thier own eyes the results to spur them on. It really depends on how you are about things. I am obsessive so I don't test and I don't weigh myself I judge everything by my clothes. xx

Bernice is right again:D forget the sticks !!! they are not worth it they drove me mad as i didnt always think they were realiable:mad:.!!

drink 2.5 or more a day and u will be fine.x:D
 
#11
haha,thankyou girls,i do want to try the sticks,but i understand what your saying,and also,its all a bit confusing,as i remember when i was on atkins and i used to read posts about what the colours meant,purple dehydrated,pink in ketosis,ahhh all abit confusing with different opinions,hmm i think ill leave the ketostixs for a bit! desperately to go shopping for a shaker and bottles of water though :) xx

Yes we are leaving from Gatwick on the 12th flying virgin. If you come ashore in Barbados maybe you can get to Dover Beach and we could meet up. That would be exciting xx

................yes but I think what happens is you go straight to the cruise terminal in Barbados. I'm not sure if you get anytime there. Check it out though and let me know. It would be great if we could meet up. xx You will have a fab time though the Caribbean is wonderful and if you don't get to see Barbados you must go back as it is fabulous.
