It can take three to four days to get into ketosis.

You might notice your tongue looks a bit furry and sometimes ketones can be detected on your breath...this is only temporary and can be reduced by adequate water intake and mouth rinsing with a mouthwash ie Oraldene or plain Listerine.

Also the best bit about going into ketosis is that your hunger will be greatly reduced and some get a feeling of well-being.

If you are following the diet correctly you will go into ketosis.

One thing to remember and that I found helped me enormously is that once you have managed to complete the 1st 7 days and then you have the weigh in and you find that you have lost anywhere between 7-15lbs the high that gives you is better than anything else.
