    Well, I'm on day 17 of TS and have been 100% for 14 of those days so know I have to be in ketosis. Why am I soooooo hungry? I can't seem to get rid of the hunger.

    I've done VLCD's before and always get to this point when I want to eat, not becasue I am hungry, but becasue I just want to chew and taste, but since Sunday I've been hungry constantly.

    It's funny though becasue I think Exante fills me up more than CD ever did so can't understand feeling like this now. I usually have my bar at 9.00 p.m. but I've finished it already. Got nothing left for tonight :mad:

    Is it hunger, or that lovely empty feeling? ;)

    Maybe you need to drink more?

    I don't really want to spoil it Shanny. I can live with it, I was just wondering WHY lol.

    Lentil2 I really couldn't stomach any more water, I've done 3ltrs today and don't want to start drining it now at 8.00 p.m. I'd be up all night :)

    Another shake won't ruin things but I'm not sure it will satisfy hunger either! They're not exactly filling as such, are they!

    If you say you can live with it then are you sure it's not just about wanting something to eat rather than actually being hungry? This diet can play tricks with your mind......

    Are you splitting your packs up? If not that might help. Split them in half and spread them out, might help. Hope you feel better soon.

    I'm exactly the same tonight Mia.I started on the 3rd of Jan, and other than a 2 day planned break last weekend Ive been 100%.I am tired after a week at work and uni, so think it might be psychological? Don't know if you'd agree if this is the same for you?

    To be fair, you shouldn't actually be hungry this far into the diet.
    I don't have my shake to relieve hunger as I'm not hungry , I have them for the nutrition.

    The research shows it takes about 6 weeks for food cravings to really settle down, so give it some time. If you need to have an extra pack or some lean meat to get you through, just make sure you stay in ketosis. Good luck xx

    I always feel starving when I'm due a period. Maybe this is the reason? :)
