Melanie,
day 1 starts tomorrow, and you want some advice. So here is some advice.

Start you day off with bacon and eggs. Have some cheese with you during the day, just in case you feel weak or hungry. Day 1 will go fine. The end of day two will probably get harder. If you get weak or hungry have a Keto snack ready. If you get a headache, it isn't hunger, its your body breaking its carb addiction. Have some water and salt ready, or some zero-calorie electrolyte drink. The headache is fluid rebalance thing.

Holly (NIGHTSKYSTAR) takes some extra things for this daily, I don't. But it is definitely something to get ready for. A headache does not mean Keto is bad for you, and it is temporary.

By day 4 your energy will be coming back, and it just gets easier and better.

Good luck Melanie - and remember - no one is perfect. If you eat something that is not keto - just forget about it and keep going. It happens. Don't let perfection get in the way of progress.

Hi Melanie...... you hit "gold" finding this team. I myself am relatively new to keto (in my 7th week). I cannot tell you how supportive this team is. No question is to silly (believe me - I almost think I am the queen of stupid questions). The people here are up on the latest info and share all their info, recipes, encouragement, etc. with the entire team.

Welcome!

I sent you a note. I'm willing to connect with you either privately or on the team.

I think you'll feel more connected if you post here on the team. Yes you may feel exposed, but we are a very warm and friendly group.

Hi Melanie!

I'm happy to be your friend! I have also found many support friends on Facebook Keto related sites. Pinterest has a plethora of recipes for Keto dieters.
So, far, this has been the most successful I've been losing weight since I was in my twenties. I'm definitely a fan!

Let's do this!

My name is Melanie and I am from South Africa. Somewhere between being a mum, wife, daughter, sister and friend I have lost myself. I am starting my keto journey and need some friends to help me on this journey. I cannot do it on my own and just need some support. Would really appreciate. Have a blessed weekend
