      Hi

      Yes the first 5-6 days I felt really constipated and bloated, my doctor told me to drink 2liters of water a day.

      I feel hungry but my doctor said that means it's working I have no thoughts to just go and get food like I used to i just stick to 3 meals a day low in fat and lots of protein.

      I have a shocking 6-7 stone to lose! I have just joined the Facebook group so I'll have a look on there!

      Hope your journey goes well
