    Hi all
    Woke up this morning (day 3) and can't eat!!! This is VERY unusual for me! My tummy is just very dodgy and sick. Please tell me this won't last too long. I think this is why I stopped this plan a few years ago. I'm going to try and stick with it by eating v plain food - any ideas?
    Thanks all

    Hi Libby

    Just eat what you can - and plain is good. I stuck to chicken and salad when I felt rough, and even tho I didn't feel like breakfast, would have a little nibble of bacon so I could take my hundredweight of vitamins :)

    It will pass, hun! Drink lots of water too.

    Thanks Susie.
    I had a MIM with small bit of cheese and ham after being up for a couple of hours and feel a bit better.
    I'm praying I'll feel better in a couple of days....energywise.
    Good luck to u.

    Stick with it Libby, more people fail at this point than you can believe, but when you come out the other end you'll feel great. :)

    It's so true what the others say Libby. When you come out of this (& it won't be long honest) you will feel wonderful. My appetite goes AWOL every few days on this, but my energy stays up. Just go with the flow, it is so worth it :D

    Thanks all.
    Feeling a bit better today. Woke up hungry unlike yesterday.
    Still have a bit of a headache and terrible taste in my mouth (ketosis - yipeeee). But I've managed to clean two bathrooms and bedroom from top to bottom so that says something about my energy. When eating carbs I would sit down with packet of biscuits and watch Phil and Holly and let bathrooms wait!!
    Not only will I be thin - my house will be spotless!
    Have a good day all.

    Hi Susie
    Not so hot on the energy front today. I just MADE myself do 30 mins on treadmill (am back from hols one week today so decided it was time). I nearly had to tie myself to the silly machine.
    No headache really - only minor heavyness.
    Onwards and downwards!

    You'll get there hun, and well done on the treadmill - exercise is my achilles heel (oh, and housework :eek:) so you are doing great!

    You will feel better, promise - but it's like life - some days I feel really heavy and a bit lethargic, other days I'm charging around like a mad thing :bliss:

    Well done on pushing the exercise even when you don't feel like it.
    I am sure you will be rewarded on weigh-in day :D
