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!


food is not my friend!
I had headaches the first few days but i upped my water intake and the headaches have been fine since! Good luck with your journey you're almost through the worst bit!! xxx
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
I got 4 ++++ from pharmacist yesterday so was in maximum ketosis - wow! Even he was impressed lol
Does that mean I have the smelliest breath too? lol
