Ketones??

#1
Hi All,

Am on day 2, and wanted to know when I would expect to be in Ketosis and will that stop the hunger pangs?

I was a bit naughty and bought some testing sticks from the pharmacist this morning and the stick said I had traces of ketones, so I am guessing I am on the way?

V.determined for this to succeed and trying to take it one day at a time. Have 5 stone to lose and looking forward to being able to wear a swimming costume without hiding behind a towel!!

Any advice would be great. Thanks Tracy

Welcome to the forum Tracy. You'll find it a great help - there's loads of support on here. It varies from person to person, but it's usually 3 to 4 days to get into ketosis. Good luck with your journey!

Hi, Tracy, I'm finding it the other way around- day two for me too and I'm really struggling today, feel really tired, headache n can't stop thinking about food whereas I was fine yesterday! Am focusing on the end result though, hoping it will pass soon and trying to visualise myself 5 stone lighter :) good luck x

Hi Carobert, keep reminding ourselves what we want to achieve, had a bath and early night to get over the worst bit. Day three now and the smelly breath has kicked in!:eek:

Do feel much better today and not at all hungry. Hope the same for you :):) Good Luck xx

Hi Tracy, yes day 3 was much better (despite the smelly breath :)) I managed to bake for and go to a bonfire party and stayed 100% which I am really pleased about- i just keep thinking about the end goal, wishing you lots of luck in your weight loss journey, Caroline x
