Super hungry/munchy feeling last night.
Drank so much I thought I'd slosh my way to bed (and was up twice in the nite), which I don't like doing to myself but its better than eating!
Sometimes the extra- hungries come before a visit from the whoosh fairy. I'd love it if she'd visit. Her appearances haven't been as regular in a couple months.

I saw a question on yesterday's daily about measurements.
Most coaches do them at the beginning and then periodically.

Re: roasting veggies from yesterday's thread:

I am obsessed with them, sooo good!

Asparagus, cauliflower, broccoli, okra, turnips, zucchini, cabbage, etc.

Lay your veggies of choice on a cookie sheet lined with foil. Mist with olive oil, sprinkle on spices (I use sea salt, black pepper, garlic powder and cayenne pepper) then roast at 350* for about 20 minutes until golden brown. Only veggies you can't roast are onions. Other than that, have at it!

I can't wait until Phase 4 when I get as many veggies as I want!

Just heard about the devastation in Oklahoma... I've got a ton of clothes that I shrunk out of, I think I will send them down there, surely they can help someone... perhaps the Red Cross will accept them?

If the Red Cross won't take them check with some of the faith based charities in your area. Two years ago we took a truck load of stuff to MS after a rash of tornado strikes. Other things they usually need are bedding supplies and basic household items. A lot of folks are going to be moving in to temporary housing or rentals and won't have little things like pots/pans, cleaning supplies, sheets, towels, etc.

Day2- feeling like death.

My headache isnt as terrible as it was yesterday, but now I'm having some serious tummy problems. It hit me about 10pm last night, and I stayed in the bathroom for at least 10 minutes. I was so exhausted I was able to make it to sleep. Now its hitting me again this morning. From what I've been told, this is normal, but its torture!
On a good note, I did lose 2.8 after my first day! yay!

I spent my first three days puking up all my dinners and going to bed early without eating my snack. I called it my body's revolt against the system, lol. Yes, it's normal, but once your body adjusts you'll start feeling great!

I started yesterday and the only issue that I really had was that I went from zero to starving between the snack and dinner. Today was starting out alright but I pulled something in my back this morning and have a sharp pain that I hope goes away soon.

Today is my second day OP- I don't think I can do it. I am really hating the IP foods!! I am not that hungry and am ok eating a lot of veggies (I am vegetarian, so i like that!), but I have not liked one single IP food I have tried so far. Am I doing something wrong?!?!

Day 6 here we go! Woot! Kind of excited. I got up this morning and jumped on the scale after my shower. I guess I was sort of skeptical of the scale at my WI yesterday. My scale confirmed, within 0.2#, that I lost 6.4 pounds in the first 4 days of my journey, of which 4.4 are attributable to fat! Super-excited. I am still a little unsure where it came off, but it's a great start (and honestly, 4.4# of fat over a 5'5" frame is going to be spread thin)!

Thanks Lisa! I am going to check in with my coach via email to see if she can do them for me.

You can do this! You're going through the worst part right now...you'll come out on the other side and be so proud of yourself when that happens.

Have you had the chocolate drink warmed up? Tastes just like hot chocolate!

Your tastes will change once you further into it. I'm not sure if you used to eat out a lot or eat processed foods, but your taste buds get used to all the hidden sugar & salt. It takes a little while for them to get back to normal once you start eating less of those things.

I had a few favorites I stuck to in the first few weeks and then started to branch out a little with the packets. There are a lot of items I don't like at all so I don't buy those.

You can check out the recipe threads to see if there is something you can make out of the packets you have. People make muffins, flat bread, pancakes, etc out of the packets.

Hang in there, it will get better.

Keep it up!

However, a word of advice...don't weigh yourself in between appointments with your coach. Your weight fluctuates minute by minute during each and every day and soon you'll drive youself crazy

I've spent the morning reading old forums about Ketosis. Most say that you should stay in between 25-30 carbs a day. I compared this to My Fitness Pal Journaling and I'm ranging 35-50 carbs a day however I'm OP.

For example, yesterday I had the Cappuccino Drink for breakfast (4 carbs). Lunch I had 2 cups mushrooms and the Herb & Cheese Omelet (12 carbs). Dinner I had 2 cups asparagus and a chicken breast (10 carbs). Then for snack I had the Cheddar Ridges (12 carbs). That is a total of 38 carbs. If I choose to have brussel sprouts or a veggie that is only allowed twice a week, my carb count can go up to 50+.

Can someone please tell me what/if I'm doing something wrong?

Are you subtracting fiber to get net carbs?

ETA: However, the beauty of IP is that as long as you're following the sheet there's no need to count, but I understand that you might just be curious.
