    I'm 11 days in and compared to others my weight loss has been very slow. Have lost 4lb in total, I'm in and out of ketosis (I think the coke zero takes me out even though it's just one can a day)
    I'm never hungry on this diet and love the shakes. I haven't cheated and do try to drink as much water as possible (usually about 2-3 litres)

    I'm not even sure if I am in ketosis as it feels totally different from when I was on Atkins. On Atkins I had that funny smelling breath, and a chemically body odour! This time all I'm getting is a dry mouth that doesn't smell, and sometimes the keto stick will go pink.

    I don't have much to lose, infact just a few more lb's but it just won't come off!!
    Any advice please?

    Hi raver minx have lost just 3lbs in my first week so disappointed, thinking the coke zero might be the problem too. Have you tested to see if you are in ketosis?

    Yeah I tested to see if I was in ketosis mac some days I was but other days not. It's been 2 weeks and I've lost 5lb.
    I've just ordered another months supply as quite honestly it's much cheaper than me having to do a food shop, I like the shakes and I'm getting all my vits from it plus slowly losing weight.
    I'm generally feeling pretty great, skin is clearer, waking up earlier, and never hungry. I hate cooking when it's just me at home so just mixing up a shake suits me better!
