    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 that...lol
    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 it...lol

    I dont know either Sammy. I cant afford the ketostix.
    But I think your usually in it by day four.

    Keep up the good work.

    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!

    Love Mini xxx

    they are called Ketostix - you pee on them and then compare the colour against the scale on the side of the container. You can also get them quite cheaply on ebay.
