    but i've found that things i won't normally be bothered by just tease me. Boiled Eggs and toast with tuna just seem to be the most tempting thing in the world. However you could sit a tonne of bacon in front of me and I wouldn't even be tempted. It's very strange.

    When I am in ketosis I get cravings and am tempted all the time. I wouldn't go out and buy foods such as chocolate etc, but if it was sat there in front of me I would be tempted. I have been in ketosis for 3 weeks a few months ago and still felt the same way. I am getting cravings for foods I probably wouldn't have bothered me before.. Freshly baked White bread and butter, treacle tart and custard, shortbread with milk chocolate on the top... I sometimes sit with a nigella cook book looking through the colour photographs! Looking but not tasting!

    For me its not the temptation of actual foods but more the smell. I was in the office yesterday, popped into office upstairs and could smell lunch cooking. I hadnt noticed it before. I couldnt even tell you what the smell was but yum! ha!

    I'm on the lite programme so I'm allowed chicken, fish, egss etc but I am craving all the sweet things like doughnuts and brownies :p

    I guess when you are away from food completely, you appreciate all food even if they're not what you would normally go for :)

    I probably should of said in my first post that i'd only been on the diet since Monday so now day 5 so in time i'll probably crave more food. Done LL so many times before but never stuck to it 100% for so long.

    I went to weigh in last night and had lost 9lbs since monday so was pleased with that :D

    Came home from work today, made myself a huge helping of tuna pasta but actually for once stopped to think about what i was doing, realised what i was doing was not needed, so fed it all to the dogs...went and had a pack, and a huge glass of water! Feel great now :)
