    Hang on in there honey, the first few days are really tough, but if you can get through them, then you will be flying x x

    I promise you it get's easier once you get into Ketosis and then you have your first week weigh in to look forward to. the only thing I can suggest is a bath and an early night (I spent most of my first 3 days in bed :))

    my best friend Pinkmantha is helping me out too. trying to keep me motivated.

    Good luck unreal. Hopefully we can talk eachother out of eating. I'm going to have a soup for dinner, are they as filling as the shakes?

    I find the soup more filling than the shakes. Put it in a bowl and eat with a spoon it makes me feel less deprived some how :)

    The soups are lovely - I just love the shakes as I put loads of ice with them and blend them up - I convince myself that the ice and extra foam is extra in my belly! I do like the soups just not the froth on top. What flavour are you having? x

    The first week is the hardest, focus on your weight loss. I find that having my am shake at 10am then lunch at 2pm and dinner at 7-8pm works better than earlier as always get the munchies at night. Try more water in shakes also.

    Hi Symphony

    Good Luck with the diet - everything everyone is saying is so true - it's hard to start with, but get through the first few days and you will be so glad you stayed with it. I started on 31st Jan and am down 35lbs.

    Hi Symphony - hope you are feeling better today - the first 3 days are the worst until the ketosis kicks in. I can honestly tell you I don't feel hungry, I WANT food and the comfort of it but I'm not actually hungry. After the first weigh in you will feel so much better. Good luck hun x

    Hello Symphony!

    First three days are horrid - but hang on there.
    Once you are done with it it is really a breeze.
    I am restarting (again) but already feeling great. I was missing being in total control of your body!
    I try to have my first shake as late as I can. I managed to push it until 1pm atm. If I had it earlier I'm sure I would be going mental evening time.
    You have to find what suits you best!
    Good luck x

    Hi guys,

    Today has been a lot better, not needed so many wee's even though ive had 3 ltres of water. I was naughty and weighed myself this morning and im 2lb lighter so that gave me motivation for today. I know its probably water but still it makes you feel good.

    Went to see my CDC this evening, swapped some soups for shakes. Im not as hungry today as yesterday. Fingers crossed tomorrow will be even better.

    Thanks for all of your kind words and support, its so helpful

    Sah xx

    Hi Guys, just thought i would write and tell you how im getting on with CD.

    The first 4 days was hell. lol

    I spoke with my CDC and she has moved me up to the 810 now. I work in a highschool as a cover teacher and im clocking up about 6 miles walking around the campus each day. I was starving hungry on the shakes within half hour of having them.

    For the last 2 days i have had the 200cal meal and im feeling 100% better. i'm really enjoying it and so full.

    My only concern is my weight loss slowing down :-( Does anyone know how much this will effect it. My CDC says the results are practically the same??

    Thanks
    Sarah xxx
