    hi there, i'm on day 3 now and really struggling with the headaches - I've taken tablets but its still there - how long do these usually last - I'm not sure I can keep this up if these continue much longer!

    I'm usually in ketosis by day 4 and the headaches go away then. Some people take until day 5, but I think it is rarely longer than that. Try and drink some more water (hard, I know) but some of the headaches may be down to a touch of dehydration. Keep going - it really is worth it.

    Along with carbohydrate withdrawal...a change in caffeine intake can also cause headaches.

    The first week is the hardest and once you are in ketosis it will make the diet that bit easier.

    I've done it - I've found the answer - I've just had an expresso and my headache has cleared - I feel hungry for the first time cos the headaches were so bad they were making me feel nausious!

    I can see the light ahead now - phew!
