I've finally got to the point of little hunger!

It's taken me 4 weeks of 75/20/5 to get there! I hate that every book says that hunger will go away after a few days to a week, the "Atkins edge" as they call it. But YAY, I've finally gotten it! (I test ketones with urine sticks. Been in ketosis for 3 wks.)

Just in time for today's party - I MUST stick to plan, repeat - I MUST stick to plan. I'm bringing my own food just in case (hard boiled eggs, bacon;oil & vinegar to put on a salad or have alone).

How long has it taken you?

It's funny how we all respond differently! I'm getting into my 3rd week on ketosis and practically have to force myself to eat ..... However, when the hunger does come it comes big and it's like my whole body is saying FEED ME!!!! haha

Yes, we value and consider the experiences of others but must customize to our own uniqueness. We are not machines, we are our own ecologies. I read that some where else, can't remember where, but I like that way of putting it.

I'm one of the very fortunate ones -- I get into ketosis very quickly and the appetite suppression is almost immediate for me. After reading all the different responses from others on different threads I'm very grateful!
