Morning...day 4 here and so far so good with the low-carbing until this morning. I've woken up with a shocking headache...Am working on the assumption it's a keto-flu type symptom. Looking on the positive side it means I'm starting to head into ketosis...but other than drinking lots of water, any tips to get through the next couple of days? I have to go into the office so hiding out in bed all day sadly isn't an option
In Doctor Atkins' book, he suggests that you raise the carb levels if you suffer adverse reactions. Be gentle on your body - it's less stressful on your system. Stress increases the insulin in your body, so it is counter-productive to trying to lose weight. Low-carb dieting should make you feel good and not worse. There is no need for draconian measures.
