Starting Week 9 - hungry!!!

#1
The last couple of days I've really felt hungry. Actual stomach growling hunger, fairly sure it's not emotional, and not just the empty feeling we're all used to. I couldn't sleep last night for it and I feel the same today. I'm definitely in ketosis as I've checked. I'm wondering if it's the cold, or if I need an extra 1/2 pack a day. I already split my bar so I can eat every 3 to 4 hours but it just doesn't seem to be enough right now.
I think I may also need to adjust my goal as I think another stone might do me, I feel quite small already even though I'm still not quite in the "healthy" bracket.
Anyway, if anyone's got any words of wisdom, I'd be grateful for any thoughts.

sorry can't help only on day 1:D

How about drinking hot water? Sounds odd I know but loads of cold water does the same to me, so boil the kettle and have a warm drink, maybe worth a try.

Difference being Jayden this section is for Exante diet. Its a total food replacement diet where your body goes into ketosis. The problems we might face on it are far different to those people on a food diet will have.

At the risk of sounding rude it doesnt help if someone is struggling on a TFR diet to then read about how much you can eat on another diet

I did end up having an extra shake last night, but that's fine, I really felt I needed it. I feel much better today, had my packs at the normal times so I've still got soup for tea then 1/2 bar to eat tonight. It was horrible yesterday - I was starting to feel a bit panicky about having to have extra, which probably made the hungry feeling worse! At least I know now that in times of desperation I can have the extra pack and it's not the end of the world :) Hope everyone's having a good Tuesday xx

The exante site recommends 3 or 4 packs a day, if you are hungry its because your body needs the extra food, especially at totm. Much better to have another pack (which still only equates to 800 cals a day) than go on a food fest.

Well done for reaching 9 weeks on it! im very impressed :) especially as i was cracking on day 4 lol.

Thanks Lynn - I was considering making a protein choice, but I'm sooooooooo glad I didn't - I just need to keep things simple for now. If I need an extra pack once a month, that's no problem!
Oh, and I was also cracking on day 4. And day 5. And day 6! But glad to say I've stayed 100%.
