    Hi Everyone,

    I'm Leanne, i'm starting the Cambridge today.
    I've just made the apple porridge (i must of made it wrong) becasuse it is not eatable! so not a good start!
    can i ask a question - people have been writing in the forums about "ketosis kicking in" when does this happen?

    Hi leanne :)
    I'm also leanne and starting today!! Ice done it before but was skint so had to give up for a bit. Ketosis for me usually starts day 3 or 4. Ppl become rly obsessed with peeing on sticks and things but don't worry too much, if ur doing the dirt right u lose weight, simple as!!
    Good luck, first few days are definitely the worst...on day 4 I'm usually achey and cold. But I promise u, ppl are telling the truth when they say it gets easier...I was in a high for a whole month when I did it before! It's sooooo worth it!
    How much do u want to lose? X

    Hi and welcome to Cambridge . Like LeaV says dont worry too much about ketosis , its not what makes you loose weight , it just makes your hunger pangs go and makes it easier to stick to . I usually go into ketosis on day 4 , day 3 is always the toughest , if you push yourself through the first 3-4 days you will be fine , just drink lots and distract yourself !

    As for the porrige , it does take some practice to get it right !! I always make it with more water , use just boiled water and add 1 tablet sweetener , then mix it and mash it with a fork so well mixed , then microwave for 1 min . Experiment with the amount of water you use , it is nice when you get it right !!
    Good luck :)

    Hi :) I'd like to lose 4 stone but I'm setting myself little goals along the way!
    I'm currently 14 st 7 and I'd give ANYTHING to be under 13 before Xmas because I haven't been that weight since I was a teenager. I'm 28 now!!
    First day going well, mostly cos I'm still in bed haha. Good luck, just keep yourself occupied and get through the first couple of days! X

    Hey not at all

    I started in november 2009 , did SS for 5 months and lost 6 stone . I then had a break for 7 months , I did slimming world and managed to maintain ok , then I had my gallbladder out so had to stay off another 3 months , now I have been back for 2 weeks .. I have lost nearly 7 stone and all added together I have done CD for 5.5 months :) I have another 1.5 - 2stone to go

    I'm starting back again today after being off CD for a few months. I was supposed to start last week but my CDC couldn't make an appointment so here I am. I'm about to have a porridge now as well although I'm not keen on the apple and cinnamon one, I like the plain one. Good luck to everyone else starting today as well x
