    I went into ketosis the first day and I know because my mouth was foul and my hands were like blocks of ice but at the time, didn't realise. I bought some ketostix from Sainsburys - £4.75 or thereabout and worth it I think to check on your hydration levels.

    Everyone must get to ketosis at different times.

    It varies on how much glycogen you have in your system. It takes me 3-4 days which is pants. It's good you went into ketosis so quickly Charlie. That explains the amazing weight loss (jealous ;))

    Sorry... i don't want to sound like I'm gloating.. I am truly amazed myself!! I am proud but its only the very start of my journey. Who knows next week I might stay the same to compensate for this loss.

    This is the first time I've done LL so also a big shock to the system which has probably also helped.
