    GOOD LUCK PICKLES!!

    Mad diet but it works.

    Just stay tough these first few days and you'll be absolutely fine after your first weigh in.

    Hi Pickles,

    Wishing you wonderful success on your CD journey.

    Be sure to measure yourself from head to toe and not forgetting the upper arms and kneck...do some photos now and the weight comes off so fast you will be kicking yourself that you did not do this as a record for your weight loss journey.

    I find that when you are about five weeks in the photos really help to see for yourself at how far you have come in a short space of time.

    Looking forward to your post and did you check out our Photo Gallery for members only.

    Love Mini xxx

    Thanks everybody, it's great to find this forum to be able to talk to other people about it. Going out later and will buy a measuring tape and measure myself tonight and get some pics taken too. Have already lost 3 stone on another diet but have been struggling for 6 months so needed to try something else. I'll keep you updated on how I get on.

    Hi Pickles, good luck. You will find this site such a help, I would definately be giving up about now if it wasn't for all the lovely people on here. I am doing a low cal counting diet; first 2 weeks brill, last 2 weeks, nothing lost. Still hanging in there though cos everyone on here is encouraging me to. You get going and there will be no stopping you! Hugs

    Hi Pickles

    Well done on making one of the best decisions you could have made.

    Get through the first few days, drink plenty of water and you'll be sailing your way through.

    Good luck!

    It's going ok, was hard earlier when other half was having his dinner but I had a soup a the same time. The shakes and soup taste really nice which helps. Managed to drink 4 litres of water and am now peeing for england!!!!

    I'm a bit confused now, my consultant told me I need to drink 4 litres but the sachet and books i've been given say 2.1 litres (4 pints). She also sold me the water mix and didn't say anything about not using is straight away but the book says not to use it in the first week.

    Ideas anyone?

    Oh and thanks for all your support it really helps.

    Glad it's going well mate!! :cool:

    You should aim for a minimum of 4 pints of water (2.1 litres) but drinking more may help speed up your weight loss.

    Do the first week clean - your packs, your water, nothing else. You will have the best loss that way. The water flavourings are excellent for helping you get more water down, but for a few people it can delay getting into ketosis so that's why it's suggested waiting at least a week.

    Hope that helps honey

    Cheers thanks for that it does help. I'll just stick to the water and sachets this week then.
