    It takes about a week to get into ketosis and then you dont feel hungry...the 1st week is a nightmare but stick with it its worth it!!! I haven't suffered from dizzy spells at all and im constantly running after my 2 year old. If you drink enough water and keep yourself hydrated then you'll be fine :)

    Hello, Im on day 6 of my first week, I have to say I have found it hard, but managable (cant spell). My 3rd day had to be the hardest I felt hungry and couldnt stop thinking about food all the time, I felt just like giving up...but didnt and Im so glad I didnt cause I can feel the 'tide turning' so to speak. My first weigh in will be Thursday and I am excited. I havent had any dizziness, or major headaches, I suffer badly from headaches and these have greatly reduced (amazily). I too have 2 small children and they are constantly on the go. But no problems here. I do find the hardest thing is drinking the water, I hate it but drink as much as I can. Hope this helps... Good luck
    Lisa

    I really advocate LT & TFR (Total Food Replacement) because apart from the weightloss the total break from food really forces you to address the root cause of your relationship with food... ie is it a covering up or being a substitute for other issues.

    I had 4 months without eating & when I came back to eating I looked at everything I ate & the reasons why I was eating it...

    Saying that though... I certainly can't be sanctimonious - I'm here 12 months later trying to lose 3 stone of the 5 I originally lost :eek:

    I think for me food 'addiction' will always be a life-long battle but it's good to know there are resources like LT (& indeed Minimins & it's users) that I can rely on :)

    Hi

    The best of luck for tomorrow! Everyone's already covered this - it will get better after the first week & as long as you remember that it shouldn't be too much of a struggle :)

    You've made a great decision!

    Good luck with your LT journey. As has been said, the first week is the hardest and anything you can do to not overdo things will help. Once you are in ketosis life will be much easier for you.

    I sometimes suffer from dizzy spells but I have low BP and usually it is coz I get up or turn my head too quickly and this affects my balance.

    Hi Louise. your concerns are natural, but you've made a great diet choice (and so say all of us, lol!)

    You really can lose a lot of weight quickly but in a healthy manner.

    I do get dizziness but just when i get up too quickly - it's not a permanent state (some may question this ;)) or lasting more than a few seconds.

    And as you say, you may miss things like the glass of vino - but the end results will be SO worth it!!

    Best of luck.

    I do suffer dizzy spells similar to CF above. I have a 2 and 5 yr olds to run around after (when I'm not at work!). But I also have low BP, so it may be compounded with LT. I know what will make me feel dizzy - so I'm careful. I think the dizzy thing is an exception not a rule.

    Good luck for tomorrow - get through the first week and you've cracked it. keep on here as often as you can for motivation, and especially when you have food urges!:D

    Any other urges and howdy doody will make a comment !:sign0151:

    Keep in touch and let us all know how you are going. xxx

    Good luck and you have no doubt made one of the most important decisions of your life!

    I have experienced the dizzy spells throughout the whole time being on LT, but I have just learnt to deal with it as best I can.

    Have a great week and just ensure you come on here whenever you feel you are struggling and keep drinking as much water...up to 4ltrs.....this will help with a lot of the side effects.

    Take care
