    morning all. well I've done cd ss before (and lost 6 stone) but I've never felt this rough before! it's day 6, I'm drinking about 3 litres of water a day and I feel ok mid day, but first thing in the morning (for about an hour and a half) and in the evening (after about 8pm) I feel shakey, tired, grumpy and light headed! I'm spaceing the water and packs out during the day, and not doing anything that I haven't done previously. I used to wake up in the morning on cd with a spring in my step and feel all happy and ready to go, but it's just not happening this time!! will it get better or am I going to have to suffer for the next few weeks?
    thanks xxxx

    Morning :)

    Are you in K yet ? I know it took me a good week to get into it and start to feel a little better, I was like you mornings and evenings was my worst felt sick, lethargic almost fluey

    Have u tried splitting your packs? so that if you have 3 a day you could then split into 6 just to try and get you thro the tough times? ..

    I hope you start feeling better soon xx

    hiya, thanks hun. I've been in k since day 3 so I'm sure it's not that. i have my packs when I get up, one about 1pm and the last at about 6.30pm. I've never had a problem with the packs before and I feel good during the day (in fact I felt great yesterday) but it's just the ends of the day. it's strange.

    As advised above - check if you are in ketosis.
    Sometimes it takes a lil bit longer to switch - hope you'll start feeling better soon xxx

    I'll give the split packs a go. I know I'm in ketosis tho, the sticks range in colour from the lightest pink through to the third pink ( if I test in the middle of the night!)

    Have you considered upping to a 4th pack in the evening? I did this when I was going through a wobbly phase in the evenings and it really helped. I now have a pack at lunch time and then the other 2 in the evening and it has really helped me

    Hope you feel brighter soon.

    Good suggestion from Charlie, also I would try and get a couple of pints of water in you first thing before you have your first pack. Having a CD product in the morning when I get up would leave me heaving for the rest of the day too!

    Although I always say I'm 5ft 8 I am actually 5ft 7.5 ;)

    My CDC suggested me doing 4 packs a day because I was feeling like you describe. It didn't slow down my weight loss and I was able to exercise all the way through to the end - felt fantastic!

    Might be worth discussing this with your CDC as you are only one inch below the 4 pack a day rule!

    hiya

    i'm just under 5ft 8in but i always say i'm 5ft 8in.

    i always have a pint of water whilst i'm making my shakes and i always add more water to my shakes too. i'm on 4 packs a day. especially useful when you've done a great gym workout and need some.
