    Lots of people add a meal until they are in Ketosis to help ease into the diet, so don't feel bad if you do have something. I added a meal as directed by Exante on the 5th week and had one of my best losses week!

    You could have some skinless chicken breast and broccoli maybe. A plain omelette. Or even just a boiled egg. Maybe a can of tuna?

    There is not much in this world that is completely free of carbs but they are "safe foods" if you have little portions. If you look at the stickies there is a list of ketogenic friendly food that may help you.

    This headache DOES pass :( Its horrible when its happening though. Good luck x

    This is the part that vexes me about this diet...how easily we all convince ourselves that unless we have just the 3 packs that we are one big failure! I am so guilty of that myself!

    Its just not true.

    We are on the diet...every single day we wake up making the choice to make changes and we set about having our packs...having an extra pack or an egg is NOT failure! Its being sensible when things are a little tough we are combating it in a SAFE way that is very exante friendly.

    I think if having an egg is the difference between coming off altogether or keeping on...then the egg wins hands down! Its not a failure...its very, very sensible.

    Be kind to YOU hun xxx

    Lots of water, painkillers, determination are all very well but sometimes that little bit extra now and again does help.... I've had 4 packs a day at least 4 days this week cos I was just soooo hungry plus I have tea with skimmed milk now and again ~ I just can't do without it. Whatever gets you through as someone else said :)

    I agree, this does not last. I even reached the stage when I forgot to eat. Be kind to yourself, warm bath, early night and tomorrows nearly here. Don't beat yourself up over an egg! Days 1-3 or 4 are as bad as it gets then you are fine. It just gets so much better.

    I hear ya hun... Food is my weakness... I put on most of my weight because my job is soooo social. We are always out for breakfast, lunch or dinner & sometimes twice the same day!!!

    I must admit I have taken some Tylenol to try & clear my head but it hasn't worked, fingers crossed the headaches pass for us quickly...
