How long till I get to Ketosis

#1
Hi All,

I have been doing Atkins now for 6 days religiously. I weigh all my salad & veg so I know exactly howmany carbs I am getting, but for some reason I have not got to ketosis yet? Is this normal. I was doing slimming world before this so not sure if gorging myself with pasta and potatoes last week maybe the problem.

Any advise is good!! I have started a diary so you can see exactly what I have eaten and drank :cry:

It just took me a day this time....have got a thumping headache & ache like bugger. I get a metal/cheddar like taste, weird, I know.
Hope you get the symptoms soon. Good luck :D

I didn't get any symptoms.
I'm on day 5 & I've had a cheeky jump on the scales and have lost 2lbs so far...

I was already eating fairly healthy so I'm not expecting wowser type losses but I'm definitely in ketosis.

Maybe give yourself the full 2 weeks?

Thanks all for your replys. Have woke this morning with a metaliccy taste in my mouth. The ketostix say I have a trace so think I've cracked it. Have felt tired and off colour a few days but so far generally not had any other symptoms!!!

Yeah looking forward to the weight loss now and week 2.

You are in ketosis!Isn't that metallicy taste disgusting (but gooood!)

Usually takes me 2 days on Atkins but a good 5 or 6 days when I did cambridge!

Keep up the good work!
