    I called a LL counsellor cos I want to start it asap so I can see the difference by Christmas.
    Hello,

    I am on day 7 and don't feel hungry and seem to have lost 10lbs which is great. I love the shakes and haven't strayed once.

    But I feel weak and tired, and quite lightheaded. I am drinking loads of water - at least 3-4 l - so that's not why.

    I think I might have to stop or maybe try 790 or something. I am seeing my CDC tonight but wanted to know what you all think as you have been there.

    Thank you

    Hey Russiandoll,

    Thank you for replying! Nobody seemed to take any notice down there in strugglers so I thought I'd try for a response up here!

    I will give it another few days. I start a new job on Monday and can't be out of sorts so I will eat something on Sunday if I don't improve.

    Thanks for the advice.

    Hi Tracy

    Try and stick with it if you can as your symptoms should pass.
    Didnt your CDC say that this could happen?

    Anyway see what she says today.......

    Good Luck

    You are doing so well try and stick with it and hopefully things should improve soon.

    How about splitting your packs so you have 6 smaller or weaker packs throughout the day? I sometimes find that I feel a bit yucky immediately after having a full pack especially if I drink it quickly.

    Hi tracy

    try to stick with it. 10lb in your first week is a fab result and it can take a good few weeks before you feel "normal" on the diet.

    Just get some early nights in, and try to relax as much as possible while your body gets used to the changes. It is so worth it if you persevere.

    I second what wannelose8stone says. It took me quite a few weeks. I think by week 4 I was flying! I just had slow down the pace of life, sleep a bit more and rest x
