Default Hello from Las Vegas

Hi
Iím new here and Iíve never used a forum like this, not sure how😄. I know that sounds impossible but Iím old and only know how to use Twitter and YouTube and Facebook.

My son, 17, is a wrestler & body builder, always telling me I shouldnít eat carbs. In the old days they taught us that carbs give you energy, haaaa. I have some medical issues, one being severe fatigue. The other day I was busy and didnít have time to eat. I did a lot of work. By 4:30 I was starving and ate a huge bowl of oatmeal with tiny sugar. Iíve never before experienced such a reaction to any food (probably cuz my eating erratic) but I crashed! I was so tired, agitated, sleepy, depressed, I had indigestion, and started having terrible pain in my joints.

It felt like an allergy. My son showed me a video about Jeto and Caron diets. I learned a lot and still have a lot to learn.

Iím glad to be here. Hello to all of you. Hopefully Iíll learn how to use this. Must go for now cuz not feeling well.
Has anyone heard of Keto flu, or feeling sick from sudden carb decrease?
Thanks
Lunalas
Nancy Luna

I already screwed up. Typos! I meant Keto diet and carnivore diet. 😁

Welcome Luna
Good you corrected those diet names, had me stumped as I tried to figure out where spell-check was coming from with those.

A forum is more organized than what you are currently using, and it keeps 15 years of answers. If you enter from this index page: http://forum.lowcarber.org You will see all the topics and what is active. Under the topics can be threads that go back for years...continuity on one topic that you do not get from Twitter or FB.

You can find posts on AutoImmune diseases, Fibro, etc. in Low Carb Health Forums.
The Carnivore diet is controversial so a Zero Carb thread was started in "war zone" in 2016. http://forum.lowcarber.org/showthread.php?t=471960
The Ketogenic Diet name has come into common use, though the Atkins induction phase http://forum.lowcarber.org/showthread.php?t=236482 , Dr. Westman's clinic version of it https://www.dietdoctor.com/se/wp-co...starch_diet.pdf , etc are all "ketogenic diets" so this forum doesn't have a one stop place for it... most very low carb diets are "ketogenic".

This is a great introduction to LC and Keto diets. https://www.dietdoctor.com/low-carb/keto Look under side-effects for Keto Flu and what to do about it. I avoided any keto flu by having two cups of salted bouillon as per the Westman ketogenic plan followed.
But since you ate a big bowl of carbs it could have been reactive hypoglycemia.

Look all around. There are answers to Newbie Questions or read back through some threads on the Atkins or General LC sections.

Be sure to keep notifcations on..you will get a daily email that show posts for any thread you posted on (like this one). The link will take you right back to it..no need to look around the forum.

All the best,

Hi Nancy,

Welcome. Yeah, there is a lot to learn. It is daunting at first. Donít worry, youíll get there. Youíre ďwokeĒ now!

I have been low carb (no grains, only vegetables) a long time. Recently I ate a big piece of cake with buttercream frosting on an empty stomach. About three hours later I had the shakes, I broke into a cold sweatóI felt absolutely awful for several hours. Never again!

Live and learn, eh? Good for you to have realized what oatmeal and sugar can do to you. Thatís a good start.

Again, welcome to the family.

Hi again Nancy,

It is normal to feel a little crappy as you detox from the sugars. Drink a little boullion (I never could spell that word, it autocorrected to bourbon, yikes) as Janet suggests, it will help. Just donít cave to the sugar cravings, this will pass in a couple days, I promise.

Hang in there.

Hi, Nancy and welcome!
You will find this forum is a great place for information, support, and suggestions for other resources. Personally, I find it helpful to stay mindful of the tremendous improvements in health, energy, mood, and overall well-being. If you have not yet watched the Magic Pill documentary, available on Netflix and elsewhere, I think it is excellent in reinforcing the WHY of eating ketogenically. It shows people of all ages that have achieved dramatic benefits in their health and quality of life by reducing harmful carbs, especially from processed food.
Best wishes on your journey!
Teresa
