Hey WTBS, welcome and well done for getting to Day 3 and continuing with CD. I agree cooking is quite hard but as time passes you do move away from picking at food especially when you're cooking. Keep at it and let us know how your progress goes.

Hello to everyone

So would love to join in with everyone for support as its quite tough having to cook for the family on not nibble or lick my fingers!!!

Welcome wantto be slim,

Well done on getting to day 3 you will be in ketosis soon!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

First weeks is tough alright and especially cooking for your family.

As DEvans has said...

Step away from the chips!
Hi & welcome to Minimins! Good luck with CD - i know it is difficult having to cook for the family but trust me that does get easier :D

Wishing you much success x
i have to cook 4 course meals for my b and b guests most nights and the first week was very tough, but I made it and I am on day 8 today and it is getting better. I am on SS+ and am allowing myself two atkins style evening meals per week, just to keep me feeling 'normal' had my first meal last night and had still lost 1.5lb extra on the scales this morning and the ketostix say I am still in ketosis. So I am very happy.

Thank you all for the kind words. I am a bit crabbit today but hopefully this will pass. Also very cold I just want to cuddle up on the couch.

Will definitely stick with it as the results on this site are amazing.
you won't feel cold for long as in a day or two you will be in ketossis and then you will start to feel great. I am just about to start week 8 and so far it's not been too bad. It does get to me a bit though when you not only buy the families food, you then cook it for them, and then have the pleasure of cleaning up after them!! Just stay focused, drink plenty of water and you will be fine.

good luck


Must do it this time
