    i think im reading too much about it now,i could be confusing myself.
    it takes 3/4 days to get into ketosis and ill feel cold and have a lot of energy?????
    ketosis burns the fat in your body??????
    how do you come out of it????

    You may be a person that goes into ketosis quickly, especially if you don't usually eat lots of carbs. I personally don't end up feeling very hungry from day 2 as well.

    Ketosis is the point where it's used up all of the carbs that you've eaten and starts using glycogen stores for energy instead, so your fat.

    I really wouldn't worry about ketosis too much, if you're losing weight then it's working!

    If you're sticking to it, you will be losing I assure you. When I started last year I didn't have any side effects at all and I was fine. This time around I felt pretty sick, but that turned out to be a stomach bug. Not everyone has a really rough time getting into it so you may well just be one of the lucky ones, which I hope you are! The thing about the Cambridge Diet is that if you do and you stick to it, you will lose, you can't not. I really wouldn't worry hun, you're sticking to it so you will be losing, regardless of whether you feel hungry or not. Try not to worry so much about it and just enjoy the fact that you're not having a rough ride into it :)

    Some people never feel ill when their body 'prepares' for ketosis :) Some don't get loads of energy when they are there either.

    Yes, but then you burn fat even if you aren't in ketosis, so I shouldn't worry about that. It is often refered to as Fat Burning Mode, which I think is misleading.

    Eat too many carbs, sometimes citric acid can do it.
    Some people don't feel hungry even when they aren't in ketosis. Cambridge has a good % of protein which helps reduce hunger. It's also low GI, which again helps. Sometimes the hunger hits day 3 or 4. Sometimes it doesn't.

    Sounds like you are doing fab :)

    I didn't get hunger pangs or anything the first time - this time I did. (by this time I mean after having some time off for xmas). Some people get lots of energy and some get really tired - I got tired. I didn;t get the headaches some people get though - lol swings and roundabouts really.
    As Caroline says - the important thing is to stick to it.

    Hi,

    I have always used ketostix for me there must be some kind of psychological reason. I dont believe I am in ketosis until I have seen the ketostix change and even then I will keep checking on a regular basis (even though I have stuck to diet 100%)- its just the way i am. I think that everyone is different and for me - my first goal was to get to ketosis and I needed evidence of that. Its the same as when I lose weight I can see on the scales that the numbers have gone down but i dont really believe it until my trousers are too big.

    Well I've made myself sound completely deluded - I am normal (most of the time!)
    I think everyone is different and if you feel you would benefit from testing so you have your proof then do it. I bought my ketostix from boots they werent very expensive.

    Good luck with your diet how are feeling now?
