    I woke up on the morning of Day 3 with the lack of hunger and funny taste in the mouth that I remember from Atkins days as ketosis. I didn't buy any testing sticks as my CDC said just go by the lack of hunger, but I'm assuming I'm there.

    I wasn't expecting it for another few days, especially as I'm doing SS+ so have a few questions:

    Is it normal to get into ketosis so quickly? Does that mean anything good or bad about my metabolism?

    How long do other people generally take to get into it?

    Or am I just deluding myself? (note to self I'll buy some sticks next time)

    It sounds very much like you're in ketosis, I wouldn't say it was anything bad to be in it so soon. When I first started CD, I got into ketosis on the 3rd day as well.

    Good luck to you with the diet

    I waited till this morning (day 4) and definately think I'm in ketosis. Got the second pink colour on the stick. Just wondered if it should be a higher reading or is that right?

    I think everyone is different. It also depends on how carbed up you were before starting.

    Anything from 1-5 days is possible.

    Good luck
