    Hi all

    On day 3 and feel like absolute crap!! Have got a bad stomach ache and feel generally like crap!! Boyfriends a bit worried but I'm assuming this is normal as I've read others side affects?

    Hi As Vicky said it lasts a couple of days, but then you'll feel so energised and be burning fat, so it'll be well worth it. Keep going you can do it!

    i think its just your body trying to figure where to get energy from. Its amazing how much better I feel when my body is burning fat not carbs/sugar/glucose

    Thanks everyone!! It's amazing how better you feel just from knowing that your doing something about your weight and imagine your body burning the fat away!! Rather than scoffing everyday and just thinking 'I'm fat' ' I need to go on a diet soon'. Hopefully I will get to a place where I don't feel down about my weight every hour of the day!! I'll let you all know how much I've lost on Saturday : D good luck to all of you!!

    Yes, it's the body switching from burning carbs for energy to fat burning instead :)
