Hi There

Firstly - I hope I am posting this is the right place !

I have just finished week one of CD sole source - at my weigh in yesterday I had lost 7lbs. I am definitely in ketosis (the stick shows a purple colour), however I am really hungry (worse than day 2/3) Sometimes this is worse than others - the night before last I was so hungry I could not sleep. I mentioned this to my CDC, but she did not really know why this is. I am drinking lots of water and black coffee - somewhere around 3 - 4 litres per day. Any ideas ? I'm really not sure that I can feel this hungry for the next few months !

Thank you in advance. xxx :confused:

Hi,

I found the same in my second week. The first week was easy but week 2 i was really hungry...

Is it your TOTM soonish? Just concentrate on why you are doing it! I am now in my 4th week. Soo worth it!! Keep with it hun. Try some of the recipes on the forums. I found the muffin abit more filling. Helped me get through. Although my CDC says i shouldnt make it because you lose some of the vitamins so i have stopped. Remember, week 2 you get the bars. I end up nibbling them through the afternoon.

Good Luck!

The porridge is infinitely more filling than the shakes and because you eat it, rather than drink it, psychologically it makes you feel much better. Give it a try - it really sets you up for the day, but you don't just have to have it for brekky - if i have hunger pangs I just make sure that my next meal is a sachet of porridge and it always does the trick.

Awww Thank you all for your replies - everyone is so nice on here.
I did try the porridge once, but it made me gag ! I guess everyone has different faves.

I went to the sunbed place at lunchtime for a treat - forgot that I would have to walk past the chippy and bakers on the way... D'oh !

Just had my delicious (?), nutritious (?) Oriental Chilli soup for lunch.

I agree with Kitteh, sometimes the hunger is more in your head than in your stomach! That's always been my problem, I eat for the sake of eating rather than actually being hungry!

Next time you feel hungry have a think about how you're feeling. Are you bored? Lonely? Feeling a little down? (I'm starting to sound like an advert!)

If you figure out when you're most likely to want food it could help with your maintainence after CD

The time I was most hungry was a couple of days ago - late evening. I was sooooooooooooooooooo hungry I couldn't sleep ! Strangely enough though, since I posted this thread I have stopped feeling hungry...maybe I just needed a rant !

Totally know the reasons why I gained weight - I didn't have an unhealthy diet, but it was portion control which was my problem - and bread...you wouldn't believe what I could make into sandwiches ! Also I got used to having a couple of glasses of wine most evenings.
Even though I go to the gym 3 or 4 times a week, this wasn't enough to stop the weight gain.

I am using this diet to totally change my eating and drinking habits - 2009 is going to be the new me !
