    Generally, in your first week you will predominantly lose your 'water wieght' - which is the glycogen stored around your liver. This is energy used for quick boosts throughout the day. When that is used up - we start to burn fat for energy, which will begin to happen once 'ketosis' kicks in. This can take 3-5 days, depending on your individual physiology.

    Remember to drink plenty of water - it is important! :)
