    hi everyone,
    I have been on SS+ for two weeks and have lost about 10lbs. I am happy on the plan and want to stay on it, but, I am excessively tired and have had a headache for three days. I am drinking 3 - 4 litres of water a day. I have never had this energy and sense of wellbeing that we associate with ketosis.

    I go to weigh in this morning but am frightened my counsellor will stop me doing Cambridge if I tell her the truth.

    I can't wake in the morning and long for bed all day. What's going on?:sigh:

    I was the same, really tired all the time, no energy... And that was all the way until step 2 (so few months). Hope you get through it though, and seeing the pounds dropping is worth it :)

    I would say it fluctuates, I seemed to be very tired during week 2 and 3 and then it passed. But sometimes it just seems to come back. It's a way of adjusting to the diet for your body, I don't think you CDC will make you stop if you tell her about it.

    You do need to tell your CDC as she is best placed to help you. I am in Week 2 and am doing ok but have noticed I'm a bit lethargic sometimes but to be honest am putting that down to the fact that I used to drink loads of coffee throughout the day. I get some coffee in as I add it to my Cappuchino Shake in the morning lol
    I have also found that I am going to bed a lot earlier which is probably combating some of the tiredness that I may otherwise feel.
    Hope you start to feel better soon and WELL DONE on your weighloss so far :)

    Thankyou everyone. I spoke to CDC she didn't have any tips but was very supportive as usual. So I will keep going. Caffeine may be a factor as I too am an addict and have only been having 2 cups a day whilst on cd. Will soldier on. Thanks again x

    Oooh... do you know what? I've been extremely tired lately, and it never occurred to me that it was the diet! I just thought I was a bit under the weather, but I have just been so exhausted. Been doing it for 2 weeks today, and only yesterday and today have I woken up & been awake (if you know what I mean!).

    I certainly do know what you mean. This is pretty awful. Don't know if it def cd that's doing it but I slept 10 hours last night and can't keep my eyes open now. Desperate to sleep. Last time I felt this exhausted was early weeks of pregnancy!..and, no..I'm not..lol.

    If this doesn't pass you can always step up to 810 or even 1000 plan. You'll still get good losses.
