    I have posted this message on here and on the "returners" board to hopefully get a more variety of answers:

    For everyone starting CD in the new year, how are you starting ? Are you just going to start straight on your desired CD plan or are you going to do low carbs leading up to CD or have you another method ?

    I'm going to cut out all fizzy juice and swap to water, so I get less of a withdrawl when I start CD.

    I don't eat alot of carbs anyway, so I'm going to swap to low fat soups and fruit/veg.

    Tempted to do a detox before I start too. Clear all the junk out of my system.

    The hope is, putting this all together I wont feel so yukky with the big change to my diet.

    Hi
    I started yesterday on day 1 - cold turkey for me - didnt cut out a thing & finished choc, wine & leftovers on Sunday !!! Only thing for me is that I have always drunk loads of water so maybe this helps ?

    Have a very mild headache today but other than that I feel fine - in fact I have that "rats bum" taste already in my mouth so feel ketosis may be on the way already.

    Most times, I find going cold turkey (LOL, how appropriate ;)) the best way for me. If I eat anything at all in those first few days, something in my brain tells me I'm cheating, and before I know it, I'm eating the entire contents of the fridge.

    So although in theory, cutting down on carbs ought to work, it doesn't for me. Unfortunately. :sigh:

    Still... I think I'm actually going to get through Day 1 at last. Yay me!! (it's only taken 3 days... :rolleyes:)

    While I'm not restarting I did start CD in early December and actually used generic meal replacement shakes for 2 meals a day for the 5 days prior to starting the diet. I also quit drinking soda and caffeine the week before as well. I cant say if it helped a ton but I did get into keto by the end of day 2 so it definitely didn’t hurt!

    Best of luck to all of you!!!

    Its cold turkey for me! Starter, or should i say re-started yesterday and to my amazement i feel fine, its normally around day 4 where i start to crumble, once im past this things tend to get alot easier. I figured if id have waited till after the new year i would have had even more to lose and felt worse about myself so il be toasting the new year with a glass of sparkling water!!!!

    I'm with Jules on this, tomorrow never comes for me... I can always find some excuse for just one more day before I restart :ashamed0005:

    I need to narrow my food choices because otherwise I always think "one little cheat" won't matter, so it's cold turkey for me, even if it does mean the usual grotty headache etc etc :(


    Best of luck to all the January restarters

    paul1978 DO NOT QUIT !

    That is exactly what I am desperately trying to avoid. The first time I done CD, I had the worst headache ever. I think I may start on SS+ as I was best on that last time - On SS+ hopefully the headaches etc... wont be so bad either.

    I am restarting on 1 January and will go cold turkey, as like many of the others have said, I need to remove the option of food completely. I did restart in August after having my second baby, but was following 810 and just found ways to cheat and it just didn't work for me. So I will be getting straight into SS and cannot wait!

    I'm really trying to up my water intake. I always drink very little of anything. So this is a big issue for me :(

    Since deciding to diet, I've actually found it very hard to eat anything. I'm just not interested in any food. Just making myself eat for the fact I need to now. Just can't wait to start!
