    Well I'm sitting here feeling sorry for myself. I am coming to the conclusion that my body is rebelling against the diet. Couldn't sleep for vile headache last night, (probably because I didn't drink enough yesterday) still suffering now, loss of concentration, nausea, coldness, generally feeling tired. I can't face any more water, black tea or coffee. I don't think it's a bug so I really can't make mind up whether to just refeed or not:cry: ps. I feel such a failure

    My advice would be please carry on until your first WI you will be amazed by the results.. If u don't feel like u want to continue then I would defo refeed so u don't have a big gain..
    The first week is tough but it's worth it!!

    I agree with foo fan do give it till first weigh in....you re going through the carb withdrawal and thats why we feel crap on vlcd for the first few days. day 5 was always my worst day, but i promise it does get easier:)

    but if you do decide to add food, refeed is the best option xx

    Girls I bet you are hitting ketosis. It usually kicks in around days 3-5. It is like the flu! Or that is how it hits me but give it 24 hours and you will be IN ketosis and feeling better. Hunger will relatively a thing of the past. Take paracetemol and a hot water bottle and pamper yourself till it passess. No major physical activity till you are feeling better if you can.

    Hot bath and bed - tomorrow you will feel better. Don't forget once you are in ketosis the pounds really start burning off! Enjoy the first weigh in! It is the best and mind blowing! Hang in there till weigh in!

    Good luck.

    Just a thought but maybe you could try cutting down on the caffeine?
    I know if I have too much I get horrendous headaches and irritability. If I am dehydrated it makes it worse.jmho

    Stay strong, stay with it. First week is always crap...seriously crap. headaches, grumpy, all the other symptoms. it's food cravings your body is kicking out, and it's switching to fat burning rather than the carbs. It is SO worth it, honestly....try to stick with it, i know it's hard x

    Ty xxx I think it was lack of caffeine. I hadn't drunk any for 2 days as I switched to decaf. Feeling much better today on 'full fat' coffee
