As the title says really!! Just wanted to say I love the site. Have been lurking while cutting down to prepare for the CD. All being well I start 2/10. Only 6 and a half stone to go and will be a regular here I hope.
You should find that cutting down on sugars and carbs before hand will really help you in the first few days. I wish I'd done what you are doing ! I felt awful for two days while detoxing all the rubbish food from my system!!
All The very best!
I agree with the others: you're doing absolutely the right thing by cutting down on carbs. It'll make your transition into ketosis SO much easier ... I'm afraid I learned the hard way by having a 'last supper' of a chinese takeaway the night before I started CD and paid the price days later when I went through the dreaded 'carb withdrawals'.
Good luck on your journey - you'll be at your goal quicker than you can imagine!
Hi and welcome to minimins. I am also new and started LL on Tuesday; I have a stop-in on Saturday and I am hoping for a good few pounds gone! You are in the right place and there seem to be a few new people around so you won't be alone
Aaaaw, thanks guys (and gals), I knew I'd get a warm welcome. I'm really anxious to start now but know I have to get my head in the right place first. I'll be keeping tabs on everyone's progress and hope it all goes to plan for all of us.
Me too! Trying to get head in right place but cracked last night and had some leftover filled pasta after two days low-carbing - then the dreaded runs and feel v delicate today!
I've been reading these boards and noting down information - there is such a lot though!
Good luck to you
