Day 3 - does this count as cheating? & why the dry mouth & throat?

S: 12st6.0lb G: 10st0lb
Hi guys,

I finally took the plunge and started the diet on Tuesday. The first day wasn’t so bad, I didn’t really feel very hungry and I was very excited about starting.
Day 2 (yesterday) was a little more complicated – I was hungry but stuck to the packs all day – then in the evening I went to see my boyfriend (to try to sort out relationship issues) but didn’t have any packs with me & I was feeling very weak (it was about 10pm and my last pack had been at lunch time.) so I ate half a plain beef burger and a microwaved egg. When I got home I went straight to bed and didn’t have my 3rd pack. – is that really bad?

Also… since yesterday I have had a really dry mouth! I drank 3 litres of water but my mouth and now my throat are so dry and my thoat is realy scratchy and sore… has anyone else experienced this?

I almost had a strepsil to try to make my throat feel better, but that wouldnt be allowed would it?

im not sure...personally i wouldn't...i had a tickly cough l.nite and i was too scared to have any cough mixture incase it interfered with the diet! but if its really sore then do so!


Step away from the chips!
Maybe you could try a salt water gargle? A gargle made from Apple Cider Vinegar is also supposed to be very effective. Hope your throat feels better soon x
I had a very sore throat when i started last week, i gargalled(?) salt water and this did help.
The thirstiness and furry tounge is showing you are in ketosis. I felt this all last week but not this week I am not sure why, I hope I still have a good loss :(
