    Hi there, just have a quick question ... I started on a VLCD on Monday (Kee Plan, similar to CD) and all is going well :)

    This morning I woke up at 6am - absolutely wide awake, full of beans which i haven't felt in months. I'm up, showered, dressed and raring to go!! I can't believe it - is this to do with ketosis?? Does it give you this much more energy?

    WOuld be great if it is as I feel on top of the world - also had a look at the scales this morning and I've lost 6lbs since Monday! I've been really down with stress and depression over the last few months so feeling how I do today is a big thing for me.

    Hi and welcome. You can buy ketosis sticks at a chemist if you want to check. But it was the funny taste that I used to get when in ketosis that did it

    Good luck and congratulations on your loss

    welcome to minimins! and well done on starting your VLCD journey!

    Yes, that definately sounds like the first throws of ketosis :)
    I was pumped with energy for almost 3 days, found it hard to sleep, I felt like I wanted to go out running instead!

    However, it does subside - by day 8 or 9, I was back to feeling normal.
    I think it's just the initial reaction of the body in going into ketosis, it's not a long-term thing. If it was, a VLCD would be FAR easier! lol

    Enjoy it while it lasts though, it's a fantasic feeling! :D
