In my experience day 3 is where low-carbing suddenly starts to pay off. Feeling lighter, more energetic, bloating starts going down and cravings disappear.

Give it more than 2 days!!

And you can pram jog, lots do it in our park

Stand to be corrected but I think your carb stores only last 3ish days and once they're gone that's when it all starts to fall into place.

Blimey, what exactly are you expecting in two days?! Get yourself over to the low-carb Bootcamp threads, they'll sort you out grin

walking 'miles' is exercise. Even slow walking burns about 200 calories an hour, more if you are very fat. That's a tenth of your normal daily calorie allowance.

sustainable weight loss rate is 1lb a week so you aren't going to see anything in 2 days.
