Hi All

I started on the diet last Tuesday, and so far, so good. I haven't felt hungry - as yet. I have no idea what my starting weight is, as the pharmacist's scales only went to 20 stone :(.

Anyway, I'm determined to give this a go. I lost a lot of weight a few years ago, only to see it go back on, with interest. My guess is I'm around 23 stone. I'm at the doctor's tomorrow as well so going to get weighed there and continue to do so on a weekly basis.

I've got a couple of questions though - how pivotal to weight loss is the amount of water you drink? Secondly does anyone know from previous experience where the weight tends to come off first. In one way I feel like I've lost a bit of weight this week, but can't tell if you know what I mean.

Welcome Ian and good luck you really have took a great step forward in doing this diet, is it hard well its not easy but its do-able I have lost 8 stone now and I just know this diet was the best choice for me as its no nonsence straight down the line regimented no bull5hit simpleness suits me.
The water is very important the bigger you are the more you should drink im doing 4 to 6 litres a day but initially I was doing 8 easy.
Keep logging on here ask any question you want nothing is too silly except one woman asking if oral sex and swallowing can knock you out of ketosis.
Enjoy!

Welcome Ian and good luck.

As the others have said, water is important and the more you can drink, up to about 6 litres, the better. The minimum you should drink is 2 litres but you will have higher losses if you drink more.

I'm like Lillie in that my weight has come off from the top down so my face has slimmed down and I've lost from my boobs (too much information I know!!!!!) I'm an apple shape so don't seem to have lost from my waist, which is where I really need it to go!!!

I would take measurements now so you can see the losses as you go along.

The first week is the worse but you seem to be doing really well so long may it continue.
