    which day did you feel really ill on when starting or restarting CD?
    Ive got Sun, Mon and tuesday booked off work as i was going to start CD on sunday and then if i feel ill at least i will be at home.
    Now, im so eager to get going, i think i may start on Saturday. However, im at work and if i do feel ill there is no way i can go home.

    i just dont know what to do!!!
    What were your experiences?

    I felt fine on day 1. I think at that stage your body hasn't worked out what's going on yet and so the worst you feel is hungry. For me, it was day 5 - that was the only day I felt bad, but I felt REALLY bad. I think it's different for everyone, but in my experience most people feel dodgy on days 2 and 3 if they're going to feel dodgy at all.

    As I mentioned elsewhere, I'm on day two and feel light-headed this afternoon, but it could well be my silly decision to cycle a couple of miles at lunchtime, even if I did take it easier than usual. I suppose it depends what you do for work, I wouldn't want to be operating heavy machinery the way I'm currently feeling!

    I considered taking a few days off at the start, and figured if I got ill, I saw no reason to take it as holiday, but as a sick day. Doesn't seem unreasonable. Also thought that the temptation to pig out was less if I wasn't at home on my own!

    Surprisingly I feel no compulsion to eat at all at the moment, which I suppose is good!

    Hi Keelie

    Good bit of forward planning there. I felt ok on day 1 and not too bad on day 2, it was definately 3 & 4 were the worse, and then it just got better from there on in.

    All the best with your re-start

    I had the same experience as Madamdotty. First two days were very normal. Only third and fourth day were horrible for me too
