    Hello,

    I am on day 4 and was hoping that I would be in ketosis by now but I am starving !!

    I have followed the program without any cheating and so dont know why I am still hungry.

    The only reason I could think is that I am due on my period any day now, should be tonight or tomorrow and this is what's causing the hunger, could this be true??

    Thx

    Penny xoxo

    Hiya Penny

    Don't know much about the effect of TOTM I'm afraid, but it's not usual apparently for some people to take anywhere up to a week to get into ketosis, so don't worry. Your CDC should be able to tell you more, but stick to what you are doing and you'll soon be there. Have you got any ketosis sticks to check with?

    Also meant to say that Boots sell tubs of ketostix from the pharmacy. They charged me £5.20

    You can get ketostix from any pharmacy I think. I bought mine online, paid £12 and got 200 plus another 200 for free, God only knows what I am going to do with so many :) But get some, they will tell you whether you are in ketosis.

    I think the hunger is most likely to be due to TOTM, and alot of people say that days 4 and 5 are the worst on the diet, but once you get through these things really improve

    Best of luck

    Thanks all!!!

    I shall be looking into buying those sticks and keep telling myself that after this week I will be fine.

    It's nothing worse than being hungry though and then it seems that everyone everywhere is eating..arrgghh

    If I've got through to day 4 without cheating then I wont start now!! :)

    Hi

    When you first go into ketosis in day 3/4 it is mild and can take up to 1 to 2 weeks to be fully in ketosis.

    Most people usually feel hungry for the first week, stick with it, it's really worth it only a day or so and the hunger will ease.
