    Hi Everyone,

    I'm on day 2 and have noticed that I am sweating so much :eek: Having never suffered this before i am taking aback by it. Its mainly my head that is sweating.... is this a common side effect?

    Thanks,
    Jackie:)

    As you are only in the first days of the diet it may be down to carb withdrawal symptoms. Often people have headaches and feel a bit fluey in the first week. Sweating could be part of this.

    After the first week its the cold that most people feel!

    Lost 10 stones on LL/Exante a couple of years ago, have regained several stone so giving WW a go.
    I broke out in a hot sweat a few times during the first week. This week will be over before you know it and you'll feel on top of the world so keep at it.

    I am on day 4 and am suffering from head sweats - I actually thought I was coming down with the flu as feel so lethargic, achey and sweaty.

    I know from my last time doing LL after the first week I was so so cold - so this time am just making the most of the 'heat' !!

    I have no experienced sweating at all. if anything I do have bouts of feeling the cold a great deal!

    On the day I went into Ketosis I got particularly cold!

    I've found I sweat a heck of a lot less, though that might be more to do with being so much lighter! lol One thing (and apologies if this is TMI) that I have found though is that when I do sweat, particularly in the gym, it tends to be a bit more pungent than usual - I figure it's just all the bad stuff coming out :p

    I found that I had sweats especially at night during the first week I did LL. They werent 'hot' sweats, I just woke up drenched in sweat and I also started sweating quite a bit when I first got up in the morning.
    It didnt last :D

    Oh my, all I remember is being so cold all the time! I actually enjoyed that in one way because I could always put another layer on, whereas when I'm hot now, there's not a huge amount that I could do. I used to look at people in work amazed, because while they wore t-shirts and were hot (even if they were really slim) I was really cold in a cardigan! Now that I've been maintaining for a while I'm no longer feeling the cold so much. Good luck!

    I'm on day 3 and I'm coming out in a head sweat even with the smallest about of physical exertion. I first discovered this on day 2 with a very gentle bike ride, then later by purely lifting 4 bricks and today a game of pool! made me break into a sweat. This is embarrassing; roll on ketosis and perhaps it will stop.
