    Hi I have started today also and am absolutely starving, shaking, have a headache and feel very sick lol.

    I have just had a few slices of turkey as I wait for the kettle to boil for my soup im hoping that a little meat or the odd boiled egg wont hurt whilst im waiting for ketosis to kick in as once thats here i will be just great its the hunger that bothers me so once that goes im sure i will be in full control ! Does anybody know the best things to eat if you just have to have something when your struggling with the hunger in the first few days ?

    Thanks Starlight and Julied...

    I have the worst migraine ever! Just took 800mg of ibuprofen lol. I have just had a teeeny bit of diet coke, and feel a bit better.
    Only have my soup left today now, going to try and have it as late as possible!
    I know if i try "just having a few slices of turkey" i will binge lol so im trying to steer clear of that. I should imagine if you really must nibble something...make it protein and no carbs :) we can do it!

    Thats my thinking with the turkey low carbs but do either of you know what is best, im having my soup in a min as the rest of the family (husband, 17yr daughter and 3yr son) are having tea so want to keep the family meal times going the same. I will then top up on the ibuprofen and have a bath to pass the time, im so determined to do this !!!!!!

    Hi all after i had my soup last night i started to feel a lot better the really bad hunger pains went and i woke up this morning not hungry, i have just had the chocolate shakes but had it warm and it was delicious, headache slowly starting to subside, things are looking up, im also a addicted weigher so weigh myself around 20 times a day lol, i am trying to wean myself off to the recommended once a week but did it again before and have lost 3lbs since yesterday am so well happy !!

    I have had some fish and then beef slices to ward off the hunger. I also start my shakes as late as I can in the day and try and have half a pack at a time, it makes it go further

    I don't mind the strawberry shake butbif you don't like it try adding some decaf coffee powder. I found the strawberry isn't strong enoughbtobget thro and I get to have a white coffee yay!!

    I really think that having some protein won't hurt and if it stops you giving up altogethr it's worth it.

    I certainly routinely ate egg cheese and fish with some salad or greens throughout my last stab at vlcd and I lost an average of a stone a month

    Theres no hard and fast rule to be honest, with some people 2/3 days with others, longer. Took me about 5/6

    hmmm....can't imagine what a warm shake would taste like :p apart from the chocolate one (isn't really very chocolatey though)
    I find the strawberry one hard going :(

    They are really nice i do it in a blender so they are frothy too makes me feel fuller than having a cold shake, have only had banana and choc so far though. On another note i have tested for ketosis this morning and it is a light pink colour which matches the 2/3rd square on the chart on the side of the jar the sticks come in..... does anyone know if this is good ?

    Back on Exante, but now going to try working solutions from 5/9/11
    Good luck everyone just starting. I'm just into my second week and have been finding it OK once I got past the first 5 days!

    I have had one meal out, but apart from that have stuck to the plan completely and don't feel hungry.

    I like all the packs but prefer the shakes to the soups. I just have them as they are but have added coffee to the vanilla one which was nice :D

    Best of luck in getting through the first few days, once you are in ketosis you will feel so much better :)
