This is the first time on CD and I just wanted to post my pledge here today that I am going to do this for one week. I am seriously overweight and fed up feeling like a second class citizen - so here goes wish me luck
Take each day as it comes, before you know it you'll have reached a week and you'll be ready for a whole new one.
This diet will probably be the most difficult one you've ever been on but, you'll also find it's the easiest if you obey a few simple rules: drink the water, stick to the 3-4 CD meals, don't cheat.
I used to take a nap during the early days whenever I started to feel peckish, do whatever works for you to stop you picking. For some it's brushing their teeth, other come on here, some take a bath or read.
Space out the CD meals and your fluid intake evenly. I try to delay having my first shake of the day until 9.30/10am, if I have it any earlier I find that I feel peckish during the evening. I'm on 3xSS per day but, on those days I struggle I have an extra one. For the first six weeks of the diet I had an extra shake on average once a week. Then I slipped up and had a couple of biscuits one day. I've struggled ever since to get back on-track, it's taken a while to get focused again but, I'm there now and re-started successfully yesterday.
Make sure this is your first week on CD not your only one, good luck.
thanks for the support, off work sick at the moment - had a minor op on my hand, so finding it hard being at home. Had a porridge and a shake today, leaving my soup for 6 o'clock, dreading cooking dinner for rest of family think i will have to tape my mouth up.
Hi Jude, stick with it, you will feel much better in no time and feeling the benefits of being in Ketosis-no hunger and lots of energy. I started 22 weeks ago and havn't looked back since and I am 92lbs down already so believe me hun it's definately worth the few crap days. Good luck xx.
Well here I am 5 days in and still haven't eaten a single crumb even when making shepherds pie for the family didn't touch the mash potato (a Miracle LOL).
I am feeling better not so foggy, I do miss food sometimes, especially evenings I keep thinking about tuna salad or a prawn sandwich not cakes or biscuits (very strange). Looking forward to my first proper weigh in on Monday morning can't believe I lost 12lb in three days already, fingers cross for a full stone.
