How long does carb burning take to become ketosis

I've only just embarked on this woe and am struggling to come to terms with eating fat.

I'm confused by the references to carb burning and ketosis phases - how do you know which one you're in, and how long , typically, does it take to reach that second stage.

This week I've put on a pound, but I know I haven't switched properly yet

Usually takes a day or two and up to 2 weeks. I can tell im in it because my hunger disappears, I pee a lot and my teeth feel funny for a day!

Are you following bootcamp rules?

Thanks - yes I am following bootcamp and have done for a few days, but I think milk in tea and coffee has scuppered me a bit.

I'm not hungry at all today which must be a good sign.

We're going to a party at the weekend where I think I'll fall off the wagon though - the host is a superb cook - but will try to get back on straight afterwards.
