the same amount of time as that piece of string !! Everyone looses at different rates , the average is 14 lb a month but a lot of people have a big loss in the first week so that speeds it up , I lost 5 stone in 4 months , but when i got down to the last stone it slowed down so as a rough guide i would say 5 months .
ketosis is the state your body goes into when it has to break down your body fat for energy . Normally your body uses the carbs you eat as energy , as exante is a low carb diet you dont have enough , and once all your carb stores are used up ( about 3-5 days ) your body has to start finding the energy somewhere else , and starts using the stored fat . Hope that helps x
I think you should be ok Hun, as on atkins you can have a loose cup full of salad (which is said to be 20gms of carbs) a day in induction. So don't worry, I'm on day 4 too Hun and starving I think it's from being on the cusp of going into ketosis.
Hey Charlie I'm a newbie too and on day one wanting to lose about 4/5 stones. My mum recommended this diet and she lost about 3 & 1/2 stone in 13 weeks. She is doing amazingly so thought I would give it ago with my partner. Day one has gone really well so far especially as I have a history of caving in! Hope it's going well for you xx
hi all im on day 3 and think its getting ever so slightly easier i honestly really doubted if i could keep this up first 2 days and i really am hungry just shows how i usually eat for sake of it and not hunger as never been this hungry before i dont think!!!
I am also at the end of day 3 - very hungry and getting headaches so I reckon I'll be in Ketosis by tomorrow or Friday. I have bought some mouthwash for the breath problem and a spray so that should solve that problem. The last 2 shakes I've had today have been a struggle as I feel really sick. The shakes are so creamy the turn my stomach so I hope that changes!
Does anyone know what would happen if, when I am in ketosis and after the first week, I changed my evening shake for an evening meal of about 200 calories? Has anyone done this?
Thanks so much everyone day 2 today and its still going good although everytime a food advert comes on tv i have to switch the channel over!! Katie you've done brilliant with your weight loss i hope i have similiar results to you!! Bigred13...ur mum has done brilliant, how has day 2 been for you?.....i hate water so ive been sqeezing a bit of lemon in my water...is that ok? x
