S: 12st8lb C: 10st11lb G: 8st13lb BMI: 28.5 Loss: 1st11lb(14.2%)
Hello all,

I think ketosis is well and truly here as I wasnt hungry today and I felt like I have bundles of energy and 2 people comented that I am looking really well today.

But at about 4pm my right leg starting to cramp painfully?? is this normal??

Also sometimes my body still feels a bit week and zoned out when lifting or moving..not majorly but enough to notice. Just slightly. I hope this is ok.

Could be that you need a bit of salt? Add a pinch to your soup maybe?

hey i have cramps all the time lol, they usually occur when you've been sitting in the same position for a prolonged period, but while on lt, they'll set in faster

Hi Yeye,

You need to mix 240ml with one pack. Make sure you drink at least 2litres of water a day and do not exceed 4 litres.

Good luck and welcome back.

We are all in this together. I am currently on day 5 and although I don't like the shakes I have no appetitie or cravings or junk. I get the odd mouth watering moments when I see chilies but that's about it.

Good luck.

Thanx so much Raringtogo! Was in a bit of a flap then. Feel determined just now, we're in it to win it :) x
Hey Raringtogo...how are the cramps today. I had a slight cramps yesterday too...when I was sleeping. It should get better...try to give it a massage with some warm body oil. It normally helps. :eek:

Hope the cramps have settled down. I get a strange twitching in small muscles in my hands and feet just before I go into ketosis. Very odd, but it then stops after a day or two.
