    Just wondering how quickly you can get into ketosis? I started my 4th restart yesterday and have lost 4lbs already and am not feeling at all hungry today, had to force myself to have something at lunch time????

    Good luck with your restart!

    I restarted last Sunday and was in ketosis by Wednesday.

    I don't really know the answer to your question, but just wanted to say, I'm much the same. I don't seem to get hungry really, even on day 1 or 2. But I get the head hunger sometimes!

    Hi Caroline, the head hunger is there most of the time for me, always try not to think about the diet but spend most of my time thinking about food.

    Thanks Jelly Tot I really hope this is it and not just some false sense of security thing.

    Hey Skinnywrist, generally it is not feeling hungry, not weeing as much and the horrible headachey not really feeling yourself thing is gone. How long have you been on the diet? Try to get your profile sorted and you will find people will give you lots of advice and encouragement, I would say if it has been less than two weeks then really do try and stick with it because if you can push through those then it does get so much easier. And always remember that this plan is not Sole Source or nothing, there are 6 plans, if SS is too hard try SS+, the losses are so similar, it is worth doing a higher plan rather than coming off all together. I have had two re-starts that haven't worked, I am trying new things this time, like I have been writing in a diary exactly how I am feeling so that when it gets hard I can look at the easy times to see what was motivating me. Take pictures too, it is so easy to avoid mirrors but if you feel like giving up look at the picture and think, "is that how I want to stay"?. Hope that helps.

    It can sometimes be less than three days - I've managed it in about 36 hours before, it just depends how much glycogen you have stored. Good luck

    I think it is definately here today, at start of day three and have already lost 7 pounds. I can't actually believe it. Brilliant motivation to get me through this first week.

    Thank you, I am totally shocked by it, I may be one of those people that gets close to a stone in the first week, that would make me very happy.
