    Hi, I'm in wk 9 of LL and feel not so good. I've been fighting off various colds, chest infection etc for the past 5 weeks and am getting a bit fed up of feeling low all the time. I really don't want to come off the diet but I'm wondering if its affecting my ability to fight these things. Anyone felt similar or have an opinion on this.

    Thanks :)

    Hi, I'm in week 9 too. I've had a cold but it wasn't a bad one, apart from occasionally feeling dizzy if I leave it till too late before having any packs...and pretty much constant dihorrea I've been good. I don't think it's the diet really as you are getting probably more vitamins and minerals than you ever were on food. Think you may have just been unlucky getting these bugs while on the diet. However I think you do tend to feel more vulnerable on this diet, and more cold. Normally when ill I'd treat myself to nice foods, hot drinks and soups and lots of cough sweets and cos you can't have them on this diet you may just feeling that little bit worse. Don't give up though you've come really far now and hopefully you'll be feeling much better soon. Look after yourself and have lots of hot baths and watch movues under your duvet...guaranteed to make you feel better I reckon

    Hi Donalou, thanks for the reply. I think you're right and I need to find another way to make myself feel better than food!! Hopefully when the nicer weather finds us the number of nasty bugs will fall too.
    Well done on your weight loss so far, really good in 9 weeks!! :)

    That's ok! I completely understand that when you are SS you blame EVERYTHING on the diet, not least because that is what everyone else tries to do for you :rolleyes:.
