    Oh Louise, it's going to take a couple of days before it kicks in! You're better off finding something to do and take your mind of things!

    Careful - it could become a bit like waiting to meet the real Father Xmas, and when it seems to take an age your thoughts may wander. Get busy, and I hope you are not underwhelmed when it comes :)

    Hi Louise, I can totally understand how you're feeling! However, you need to try and focus on all the positive reasons for embarking on this diet. It is hard for the first few days. Your body is adjusting to a huge change. I found that I began to feel good after about 5 or 6 days into the diet. Once you start to see the weight dropping off you will gain a real desire to continue! I started following the dukan diet in august 2010, 3 months later I weighed 2 stone less!! It is SO worth the perseverance. After 5 days on attack I had more energy, my cravings for carbs and sugar subsided and I felt like I had a new lease of life. I followed every diet possible but NONE gave me the results I have achieved on dukan! Please keep faith in yourself and the diet, you will start to feel better in a day or two!! Keep us updated, we are all in this together and all here for you! Xx

    Stop even thinking about ketosis - I don't think Dr D even mentions it. What do you think is going to happen?

    Stop worrying - it really isn't that dramatic! The only thing I really notice is a bit of an energy boost, and the fact that I don't feel hungry, and maybe a bit of a headache the first time.

    Oh Louise! I've never known anyone focus so much on ketosis. The Dukan ketosis is very very light, compared to Atkins (so it's easy to slip out of with menu errors!!), and some don't ever get the feeling of being in it.

    I'd advise you to seriously just get on with your life, and ketosis will happen without your being aware of it... or not... whatever... and your weight will drop off.

    Most of us work full time... many with kids too... no worries.

    Stressing won't help!

    Louise - you dont mention how much you have to lose etc?
    Really, as others said dont worry bout ketosis - will just be a headache probably which, if you drink plenty of water, shouldnt affect you too much. Get up and get doing what you usually do. I do atkins and work 5 days a week and still manage when im going into ketosis.
