Hiya Hun,
First of all well done on taking the first step. Everyone is different when it comes to worst days. Generally the first week is the hardest. Not all the time but be prepared to be ratty and generally feel a bit crap. Once this passes it is relatively easy from there on in.
Best of luck with your LT journey.

Hi Sam,

Good on you for starting it, the hardest part for me was the first week definitely, I'd have to agree with Niamh and Bex there. Its difficult with the hunger pangs in the first few days until you go into ketosis. The best tip I have for this is drink lots of water, it really does help. Please don't break it in this difficult time, if you can keep going during the first week then you will succeed. Also a hint is to make sure u use fibre clear to avoid constipation and the best piece of support is to use this forum, all the people on here have been so helpful and encouraging! Keep us up to date hun with your progress!

I'm on day 4 and i have to say so far this is the best i have felt. And for the first time this morning making my son's toast was not absolute TORTURE. I didn't realise till i was washing up that it didn't bother me at all !!!!
I didn't get any headaches or feel lethargic either and i think that was down to taking the advise from this forum and drinking lots and lots of water. Luckily i was a big water drinker anyway.
So keep up your water intake and keep plugging on even when your willpower is waining. It will be worth it in the end.
Lots and Lots of good luck

Hi hun - good luck with your LT journey! You'll find all sorts of hints and tips on here but remember this journey is very personal. Your body may react differently to others so don't always assume you'll go through the same processes at the same time. I found week 1 really easy - week 2 was much harder.

Remember to keep coming back on here for all the moral support you could ever need! Here's to being a skinny minnie! xx


Here we go again!
Hi and welcome Sam.

I agree with all said above, especially about us all being different. I find week 1 OK but last time on LT week 3 was really hard but this time it was absolutely fine.

Drink plenty of water, stay active and keep your goals in mind. This diet really does work and you can reach your goals. Good luck.
