    I am not sure because people lose different amounts. I had 2 stone 11lbs to lose and lost 9lbs in the first week... others have lost between 5lbs - 14lbs!

    Hi I started the diet 2 weeks tomorrow . I weighed 13 st 9 and would like to get to 9 st 9 . I lost 8lb in week 1 but I need to drink more water !! alot of people have lost more in week 1 but I think it depends on how much you have to lose . I did lighter life 2 years ago and lost 3 st in 10 weeks . Good luck .

    Mum of 4 Boys, how much water are you drinking at the moment? Its my first week- well my second day actually- and I am trying to get my body used to such a big intake of water, when you dont drink that much around 3 litres is huge!

    I was wondering the same thing about how much I may be able to lose, I guess it just depends completely on each individual person though. To be honest, right now, I would just be happy with a loss.

    Hi aussieraquel I think i have been drinking about 3/4 pints and It should be more like 4/5 . I have now started to buy sparkeling water as its less boring and nice and cold from the fridge (with ice for a treat !!!!! ) Dont worry about a loss on your 1st week I am sure you will be shocked at how much you lose . Good luck .

    i just had my WI today and lost 7.5 but there are ppl who have lost 13 and more...it really depends! but u can expect a good loss better than normal diets! and its supposed to average out at 1 stone a month so one week might not be loads but the following weeks will add up!!!

    stick with it!

    Well done for pushing through :) Ketosis can be rough to get into if you didn't slim down on carbs/sugar/caffeine before starting CD. ((hugs))

    Weight loss as you can tell largely varies person to person.. but you WILL lose so believe ;) and be strong! :)

    As for shakes you don't like.. you will never forget! lol and again it's an individual thing.. I can't stand vanilla or walnut and toffee! lol

    look forward to congratulating you on your loss in a few days! :)

    Well done CardiffGirl; I hope my first WI results will be similar. Just wondering as we're the same height - are you on 4 cd meals a day too?

    Sort of. I only have 3 packs a day but my CDC said it was ok for me to have some milk (for my tea and coffee) as long as its not loads. Good luck!
