I don't know Bali.I've only just started today!I'm sure someone will be along soon who can tell you! How have you found the first week?
 
#3
have you had enough water? I used to find that the savoury drinks helped when I was having a real 'hungry' moment-which wasn't very often at all to be honest.
TOTM will make a difference. Well, it does with me! Good luck and stay strong. It does get easier trust me. I ate nothing for 7 months xx

Keep going Bali dear. :) I still get hunger pangs quite often, but a lot of the time it's more emotional hunger talking so I ignore it. Or I drink a cup of coffee with some Skim. Milk which helps too!
If you're feeling a little light headed though: that could actually be real hunger... I have a carrot as a snack in that situation, and feel better!

:)

you shouldn't be having milk in your tea or coffee! It's not alowed during abstinence apart from in milk week!

I know guys... *blush*
It's just that she didn't post in the LL Lite forum, but we are both doing the Lite plan.
I was on abstinence for 9 months, no worries.. I know... sorry for the mention of F**D here.

Just remember thae following;

Ketosis = no real hunger
Thirst = hungry feeling as our bodies don't know the difference
Boredom = hungry feeling
Tiredness = hungry feeling
Stress = hungry feeling

and so on.
After 1.5 weeks on LLL, you'll be definately in Ketosis so it's almost 100% guarantee'd that your 'hunger' is actually one of those above, and not actual hunger :)


Tell yourself that, and it helps; I regularly remind myself, even after nearly 19 weeks, that any time I think I feel hungry, it's a trick! and quickly remedying the cause (i.e. do something fun if bored) makes the hungry feeling dissapear suprisingly quickly.......

I should really remind myself of these! Thanks. :D

i am on my 3rd week now and still have hunger pangs to the point where i feel sick and stomach growling, i am in ketosis and trying my best to ignore it...i almost broke last night and picked up a piece of food but quickly gave it the dog and ran out of the kitchen.....i am desperately craving salad & veg rather than the usual suspects so i suppose thats a good thing !!!i think the fact that im only doing it until 3rd april is keeping me going....im still debating whether to carry on after my holidays, for me i feel there is less pressure due to the fact i can do it for a month at a time rather than 100days, if that was the case then there is no way i could have gotten back into the swing of it !! i can easily drink 3 litres but struggling to get a fourth one down, i wonder if i did manage it then that would help my hunger pangs?? is anyone else struggling with the water?? i dont mind the flavourings but they dont make much of a difference !!!!

I think it's easier week 3 onwards when you're well established on it, this is what I found anyway :)
