it's my 4th day and I am feeling really tired too, took the afternoon off work and went to bed for a few hours but I am still knackered just about to have my last shake so hopefully that will give me a boost

I was exactly the same last week when I started. I was so shattered after work I had to go and lie down for an hour or so as soon as I got home. Days 4 and 5 were a nightmare and I thought I'd never feel normal again.

Suddenly on day 6 something happened and I felt amazing (ketosis??) the growling hunger had gone and I felt invigorated (that was a first for me!!!). I am on day 11 now and still feel fab.

Hang on in there it is well worth the wait.
