    I start CD tomorrow & was wondering if any one could give me some advice and tips on what to expect and how to cope with this diet.

    Any advice will be welcome

    I started CD on Saturday. Im on Day 3. I have found it quite hard - especially today. I have craved food and almost caved in. But looking at success photos on here and looking through my book of clothes I want to be able to wear has kept me on track.

    Drink as much water as you possibly can - I didnt today and had a headache. Drink, Drink, Drink!

    And good luck! In 3 days I have dropped 9lb!

    Good luck for tomorrow, the first few days can be hard for some people and a doddle for others.

    Take it hour by hour, day by day, keep focused and positive.

    Drink plenty of water (2-5lts)

    Never cheat

    Drink plenty of water

    Never cheat

    Oh and drink plenty of water and Never Ever Cheat , not even an incy wincy teeny weeny bit.

    Totally agree with you, well said!

    Just like to add that it's ok to have paracetamol if you get a headache due to carb withdrawal and be sure to drink some coffee if you usually do so or else you'll be getting a double whammy of withdrawing.

    Wishing you the very best of luck, this diet is fantastic but it is tough to begin with. Stay focused and take things one day at a time. Keep us posted with your progress.

    Good luck with your start tomorrow and keep drinking the water. Take one day at a time, even hour by hour if you have to and keep busy for the next week. I had loads of baths and early nights in the 1st week

    Yeah, I agree with everybody's tips, drink plenty, take headache pills when necessary and locking yourself in the bathroom in a lovely bubble bath all helped me too. My first 3 days were the worst but once I got through that I was like a different person and I lost 13lbs my first week.

    Good luck and stick with it;)

    I've been going for 8 weeks now and it really does get easier the longer you are on the diet. Are you ss from the beginning or getting into CD gradually. I ss'd from the start. As everyone says the first 3 days can be a form of torture (water torture as well if you're not used to drinking it in quantity - but even that gets easier and you'll be sloshing it down in a few weeks).

    Good luck, and keep posting!
