HELP? body is screaming at me to eat!


yes and yes.

What day are you on, sounds like day 2 to me? it does go, we couldnt stay on this for weeks at a time feeling like that, I'm not saying occasionally we don't get the odd hunger strike, but generally its okay

Have a hot drink and try to have an early night.

Yes it is worth it, but it isn't worth making yourself ill over. What day are you on?

If you are really feeling that bad have an extra half a shake. But if you can try and distract yourself, have a bath, read a magazine or a book just try to take your mind off it. See if you can make it through 30 mins at a time. Have you drunk enough water today?

Here's hoping you feel better soon and start to feel the benefits from the diet. And to repeat again - it is definitely worth it!


its day 4 for me. first 2 days were easy. this jsut feels so unnatural!
Sound like your body having a last gasp attempt to get you to eat before you tip over into ketosis then? Have you tested for ketosis already?

Honestly, hot drink - tea or coffee and an early night. Could try another half pack if really struggling?
yes iv durnk 5 pints today. will get my head down with a dvd soon. just worried that things will get worse. have work tomorrow! urgh how u brave sods got thru this il never know! upmost respect!

It does get easier, and once you have your first week weigh in results it gets even easier! Stick with it and enjoy your film!
my stomach hurts, i feel sick, yet iv had my 3 shakes today. i feel slightly week and craving food.

but i know if i start eating, i wont stop.

double edged sword.

is the nausea/pain normal/worth it in the end?
sounds like DAY 4 to me.......???? this is the day that your body 'runs out' of carbs and wants you to eat lots of 'em - DON'T DO IT !!! you are soooooo nearly in ketosis - it's not worth it.....lots of water, have a nice bath, phone a mate, ANYTHING !!! just don't eat !!!!!

the first few days are the worst......it DOES get easier :)

Not at all, we were all newbies at one point too.
