    The first few days can be tough, try not to do anything too strenuous, just take it easy whilst your body gets used to the diet. In 2 or 3 days time you will feel great, honest!! Good luck for the rest of your first day - it gets easier :) x

    Hi there...I am on day 1 too but this is the 2nd time I have done CD. I feel lightheaded and I remember last time i felt cold for most of the time. Keep drinking the water and it will get better...I have read that the first 3 days can be the hardest.

    Good luck to you

    Hi! Well done on getting started, making sure you're taking enough water will help with headaches & light headedness but it can take a few days for those feelings to pass. Like AbFab said take it easy until your'e not feeling light headed. I still feel constantly cold, that's one side effect that hasn't passed!

    Hi Fran It gets better!!! Tomorrow I start week 4 and it has flown past.
    I felt a little dizzy at times too, it does take a while for your body to adjust.... take it easy as the others have said.... and enjoy the journey to the new you :)

    Hey .
    just wanted to wish you luck on your cd journey!! I am glad you liked the soup and the shake you had.
    It does get easier I promise my third day was my hardest and I just drunk loads of water like your doing and took some neurfoen. In the beginning I had lots of early nights and bubble baths..
    Good luck and if you have any questions just shout.
    Just thought I say . alot of people get quite cold too so it is normal if you do.
    Good luck x

    Hi, Im on my 1st day too. Tried a few times over the past month but not stuck at it.... this time is different some friends know now and my mum too so gotta stick at it.

    I always find it hard to drink the water as Im not thirsty and my job is out and about in the car up and down the M62 so its a little scary to drink just in case I need the loo....

    Good luck to our 1st successful day x

    I got a bit lightheaded on day one too and all I was doing was folding washing, I think it was the bending up and down. I drank lots of water and it passed. I'm on day 4 now and feeling great although a bit lathargic still.....but I can be a bit of a sloth anyway lol!

    I'm not very good at drinking my water so I make sure I have 2 litres in the fridge so I know when I've acheived that and then any more is a bonus. I have a glass everytime I go in the kitchen. It does become a habit after a few days though.

    Good luck
