    Hi MrsB.

    I'm on day 5 now, went into ketosis on day 3 :) You shouldnt really be feeling "hungry" when in ketosis, it could be "head hunger" as apposed to true hunger.
    You will start to feel better soon i promise!
    When i did LL i have to admit to feeling pretty cr*ppy for the first 2 weeks or so, (mind you i did have a carb fest before starting!) but the loss on the scales kept me going and was so worth it.

    I get cramps too, i can't offer a solution, but had them also in the early days of LL and they eased off.
    Good luck, keep at it and you will be amazed at your loss :D

    ouch :( don't think i could cope with night shifts anymore (an age thing :))
    keep drinking the water and be kind to yourself in the early days.

    hope your night shift go quick :)

    Did you like a lot of salt on your food before you started?
    Maybe it's salt withdrawal? Cramp can be a side effect
    if it continues , it may be worth adding some salt to
    your soups for a while, see if it goes away
    only a little though :D

    no I am not a salt person and I never added it to my food pre-diet !! its early days for me so i will stick at it, only one more night shift.

    Britchic a ketosis stick is a test you buy to see if you are in ketosis ( hence burning fat ) I'm no expert still learning, its just something else to keep you going in the early days lol
