    you should be in Ketosis about now I'd say , have you got Ketostix sticks ?
    You will have a strange taste in your mouth also feel lightheaded maybe even a headache .
    Look at your tongue is it whitish ?

    to be 100% you need the sticks to check but once your headaches go away and you start to feel like you regained your energy, and most of the hunger has gone away, then you are probably in ketosis. It took me about 5- 6 days. i think everyone is different. hope this helps

    Ketosis is another name for the "fat burning" process. When you start the Cambridge Diet, during the first one or two days your body uses glucose (a simple sugar stored by the body as the complex carbohydrate glycogen), for its main energy requirements. Once the body has used up its stored carbohydrate, it then switches to its other energy source - unwanted fat. A ketogenic diet is very low in carbohydrate.
    Most dieters achieve ketosis after three days on the sole source programme.
