    I'm on day 6 and still nothing... But can't remember what's normal. On VLCDs you are usually in the zone within a few days, but what is the average on Atkins?

    When did your smelly breath and dodgy body odour kick in? Haha.

    That's what I'm trying to figure out... I had a small slip up on day three so that might have knocked me back. Will test again tomorrow and see what's what.

    Will cut back on the snacks... been having a couple of cheesestrings and pepperamis, nothing illegal and they didn't knock me out last time, but might be slowing down my journey into the big K.

    Would say I'd avoid the sf jelly, but have a massive sweet tooth so I think it's that or something worse in my hour of need. Fish for dinner with cauliflower cheese and purple sprouting. Hurry up ketosis!
