Hi all, this is my second day and I'm so hungry, headachey, tummy rumbly and having cravings but sticking to TS and drinking all that water :) ... I have no keto-stix and am hoping I'll hit ketosis tomorrow, any signs that should help me identify it? x Any hints would be good!

I would say you'll know it because you don't feel hungry. You may still crave things as I believe that's more in the mind as opposed to hunger. Your headache may disappear too. Some people get a taste in their mouth, others get very cold as in can't warm up at all. Good luck, I hope the k fairy arrives soon xo

Not feeling hungry is all I want!!! The headachey feeling I can handle, I think it's carb withdrawal...I was someone who LOVED my carbs! Here's hoping the no-hunger thing comes soon x

I don't know if it's cause I wasn't feeling well yesterday (& still today) but I just kinda noticed that I hadn't had a pack so the hunger had gone without me realising. It shouldn't be too far away hun xo

Thanks Hadl86! Dying to get into ketosis, I have good willpower but not being in ketosis yet is making it harder to be happy about this diet! :) Still...hanging on in there and hoping I lose at least 5lbs for my first week x Not sure what I can expect but I'd be happy with that!

Hiya wicked...

My very first sign on ketosis was on day 5 when i woke up with worse breath than my 9 yr old staffy dog...i have a plethora of mouth washes to keep it at bay during the day now...My poor dentist on wednesday definately could smell it as he mentioned a change in my normal minty clean mouth lol... he laughed when i explained xxx

Well this would be the one time I'd be thankful for smelly breath!!! :) I think I might be easing into it today, Day 3, yesterday was horrific with headaches and hunger, feeling a bit better today, less hungry...fingers crossed x
