    Hi everyone

    I know something was up when I snapped at DH this morning for no obvious reason. Also have a killer headache from waking and now have a jippy tum. I just didn't think loose bowels were a symptom of ketosis.

    My CD thinks i may be in ketosis but am not sure....is it too early ? i'm on day 3 of SS and have had my 4lts of water everyday

    Please help x x x

    PS headache is probably carb or caffeine withdrawl. Jippy tum could be due to concentration of vits minerals in packs - and bad temper??!!! No comment!!!

    Well done on water - it really helps.

    it won't be long until you are out the other side funellafox.... grit your teeth and get going (then apologise to dh :) ) .... the temper could be down to the withdrawal from carbs too!

    A "controlled" carbohydrate one.
    Acetone on your breath makes it smell a bit like nail varnish remover, so it's not that horrible. Your brain takes a few days to adapt to running on ketones, but it'll get there eventually! Nige x

    Hiya and welcome to Minis and CD! Did your CDC give you a stick to test if you are in ketosis?? I sometimes get a funny tum, the water should help though. Hope you feel better soon
