It takes a week, or a bit more for the body chemistry to switch from carb centred mode to fat mode, so expect some difficulty in the first days, but every day gets easier.

Let me also introduce myself. I did the "Ideal Protein" (I.P.) diet about a year ago for about 5 months, then transitioned to low carb with grocery store foods. After 8 months of low carb maintanence I'm currently on I.P. again to try to loose my last 15 or so pounds.
I'm a type 2 diabetic, but off my medication as long as I eat low carb.
