Day Three for me and I feel good that I've stuck to it.
But I'm suffering from really really bad head aches!!! :(
Seems like I'm living off paracetamol. Taking them every four hours. It doesn't help that my job is staring at a computer screen all day long!!
Do headaches go once in Ketosis??/
PLease please please say yes!!!!

I'm sat in front of a computer all day too,it doesn't help.

I try to keep water next to me and have it regularly.it seems to help.

From past experience i would say things do get better.:) so stay strong.You can get through this.

Sorry your suffering I had some really tough moments too but Im now on Day 9 and feel fine. I know you've probably drunk loads of water but try and drink some more because I found that a bit more really did help. Why not see if you can treat yourself too, something positive that you enjoy to congratulate yourself, I like to have a bath with a book when the little un has gone to bed. It will get better, stay strong xx

Headaches defo do go way once you reach ketosis in my experience.

I found i used to get lot of headahes prior to Exante and eating but once i was on it i very rarely do now so it must have been to do with the toxins or all the 'bad' things in the food/drink i used to consume that caused it.

You have to remember aswell that we get a lot of endorphines from food so it isn't a surprise our mood OS effected on this diet too. Yes, as said. Headache will pass, drink lots lots x

I've taken everyone's advise and upped my water in take. It seems to be helping!! Went to my best friends birthday get together last night. So proud of myself!! Sat there and drank coke zero, loads of take away pizza everywhere (my fave!!) and I didn't eat it. My god I wanted to! But I kept strong!! If I can manage that, I'm sure I can manage anything xxxxx
