I'm on day 5 now with no cheating at all and my stomach is still rumbling is that normal. I'm not particularly hungry but I do look at food and think ohhh I'd like to eat
I'm drinking 5 pints of water a day.
My mouth is a tad dry but my breath isn't smelly (I've been asking my hubby and mom a million times a day..haha)
I am cold but then it is freezing weather isn't

Normally when you are in ketosis you will notice that hunger is greatly reduced and in some the feeling of hunger goes away altogether.

Some not all, also get a feeling of well-being or a ketosis high.

Ketosis can be detected in the urine.

Also, sometimes on the breath but this is temporary and can be reduced by adequate water intake and mouth rinsing with a mouthwash like Listerine or Oraldene.

I hope that helps!
