ketosis is a good thing hun so dont be worrying about it!
Its basically where your body starts to burn the fat youve stored and converts it to energy!
You WANT this to happen!
It will stop you feeling hungry if you are!
Bad thing about it tho is you may get a bad smell on your breath so dont panic if this happens!
Also DONT drink alcohol while in ketosis its VERY dangerous and it some cases can cause you to collapse!
Hope this helps x

id agree with what clare and sharon have said. ketosis is something to look forward to apart from the headaches and minging breath in the first few days!

but it makes you less hungry, making you eat less and lose weight :D

basically yes...but i wouldn't advise doing it every week and the next day drink lots of water

but its good let your hair down once and a while and in a strange way makes you more focused.

it advises that you stick to the diet about 95% of the time as no-one can really do it long term and you should still see results

keep up the good work :D

mmmmm i love peanuts...they're one of my dangers with alcohol.

all i would say is maybe just chop up maybe fruit or veg in the fridge and pick at them or buy some sort of bars to munch on.

you sound like you just need to keep you hands busy (i don't mean that in a dirty way hehe)

you could also try sugar free jelly and try banning alcohol from the house for a while until you have had a few weekends without then you'll get used to it.

when you got your products did you get the starter pack?
in that book it says you can have a certain amount on nuts but i cant remember what kind or how much but i bet someone else can tell ya.

you just need to find your other peanuts or beer!

sorry if im no help :eek:

And also remember that on your allowable list is 1 can of diet coke a day! So once youve managed all your water, you can treat yourself during the week to add variety and have a can of coke :)
