Hiya,

everyone's different so we all have varying reactions. I have seen people say LT affects their mood at times, especiallt those difficult first few weeks. I don't know why, or for how long - but the benefits must outweigh the downsides i always think!

Top tips:
sip cold water, little and often - making sure you have at least 2litres every day as well as your shakes. Make the shakes up with more than the recommended 250ml amount of water if you find the water consumption hard at first.
Don't give up social occasions - just have sparkling water instead, or black coffee/tea.
don't miss any shakes - your body needs the nutrition they provide so it's important to have all 3

And finally, enjoy watching your weight go down every week :)

Not much to add really, but, wanted to wish you the best of luck!

I do still get a bit moody on occasion, even eight weeks in, but luckily my family know what I'm doing & my Mum has done it before, so remembers what it's like!

Hi Bex! Can't add much as it has all already been brilliantly explained above.

Remember you're doing this for you. You're doing it for a healthier, happier life.

I'm a psycho at times (although I was a bit of a nutter before LT so I'm not too sure if I've gotten any worse!)

Good luck and keep coming on here for support, this place really is a Godsend!
