    Make the porridge according to the instructions on the pack.
    Keto stick - if its dark purple after your first wee of the day you need to drink more and dilute the ketones.
    Don't test too often, if the stick comes up peach and you have stuck to the plan its because you have diluted the ketones enough. :)

    aww nightnight - sorry to hear the porridge didn't work - for me, I add just under 150ml (probably something like 130ml) then stir and stir and use the spoon to keep press the oats to the bottom of the bowl to make sure there's no bad lumpy bits, just the oats and then microwave for 1 minute, then do the spoon routine again and it's yummy! x

    hiya night ,
    how u doing hun?
    im on day one of my restart.
    couldnt start when i wanted to originally due to hospital commitments (went through an absolute nightmare there, when they gave me a sedative to do a procedure and it rendered me unable to speak and i felt EVERYTHING. in the end i managed to scream (and i mean SCREAM).
    it was all very frightening and im very glad its over.
    so, end of day one here and tummy is growling like a half starved bear. lol
    u had weigh in yet?

    Dont eat any more sausages, have some bars chopped up in the fridge for naughty nibbling, if your hungry have another cd meal instead!

    evening night,
    dont worry about the sausage hun. just move on.
    for what its worth, sausage meat is mainly protein so shouldnt do too much harm.
    we both know only too well that the more u dwell on it the more chance there is of u caving in to something more than just a sausage.
    after all, it was a sausage, not a pile of mashed potato and gravy with it..... could have been much worse. :D
    im struggling with the water intake at the moment, having to have a little splash of skimmed milk in my tea, as much as i can just about get used to drinking black tea, i doubt i would EVER be able to actually enjoy it. :jelous:

    hey night,
    glad ur back on track and have immediately moved on and enjoyed ur nice scrummy trifle.
    ive only had one cup of tea (with a tiny amount of milk) today and the rest of my fluid has been water (boringggg).
    i was tempted to make a trifle this morning but i managed to resist the urge as i know that technically speaking i shouldnt be using the flavouring for the first 2 weeks :confused:. whether i will last that long without the trifle..... well, we will see. lol
    other than that im doing ok, bit headachy but i was for the first few days last time too.
    onwards and downwards.
    do u have a weightloss aim for christmas?
    i was hoping to lose 3-4 stone by then.
    also have a big party to go to on 17th jan so would love another stone off by then.:rolleyes:
