    Hi, I know I have asked questions about ketosis, and I am sure 1000 people have asked 100000000 questions before-so I'm really sorry to be repetitive!!! My question is: please could someone explain to me in layman's terms what ketosis is? Will it make me feel better-less hungry and sick? (I am on day 3 of ss)
    What IS IT?!?!?!?!? :p
    Thank you!

    It kicks in around day 3 or 4 usually and is essentially your body being in starvation mode (using your fat stores as energy instead of carbs) but it does give most people a sense of well being and you dont tend to feel hungry if you have your shakes at regular times throughout the day! I did 8 weeks SS earlier this year and lost 2 and a half stone! Starting again 2moro to lose another stone and a half!!

    Good luck xxx

    I find that brushing my teeth and tongue after every shake/bar/tetra, as well as using mouthwash helps

    You can also have the Listerine strips that you can get from chemists etc

    Im in ketosis according to those pee sticks. I do feel cold, well my hands and feet are cold. My breath smells sweet in the mornings, its kind of strange, and my tongue is while .... but I am living with it :D
    I have bags of energy considering I am eating nothing, its a strange thing to say but its all good. :D
