    Apologies if this has been asked loads, but this is my first week I'm now on day 5 and wonder how you know your body is in Ketosis?

    I'm drinking around 4 litres of water and having the shakes, but I still feel hungry..does that ever go away?

    Also, the recipes I found (which are fab) can you only do those after a certain number of weeks?

    Sorry for all the questions

    Thanks
    Rose

    hi Rosie
    well done on getting to day 4,
    The only true way to check for ketosis is using ketostix which you can buy from all chemists, they are kept behind the counter so you will have to ask, I have never been asked what i want them for they cost about £5.50-£6 for a bottle of stix and you wee on one and if you are in ketosis it will change colour, you want it to go blush pink ideally any darker and you need to drink more water

    as for the hungry feeling, in my experience [halfway through week 14] it does go away, but that dosent mean that i dont feel hungry sometimes but my packs now suffice, I just dont crave food as i did at first, so to sum that ramble up, ketostix= chemists
    hunger= gets less and less and packs will soon be all you want/need
    good luck

    oh yes the recipes can be used from the begining , but only 'cook' 1 pack a day as it diminishes the vitamins in them x

    i got my ketostix from asda pharmacy £5.09, my sister went in boots and they wouldnt sell them to her, asked why she wanted them and she said she was on a diet and they said no, so she went to asda and got some no probs
