    What plan are you following? How long have you been on it? Are you sticking to it 100%-making sure you're having all your packs and a multi vit of required? Are you drinking enough water? Are you doing too much exercise?

    I'm following a plan from my dietician, the meal replacements are ones that she's formulated, I no longer take my multi-vitamins i case of overdosing on certain ones whilst I'm on there shakes. I drink loads of water, I'm not convinced its my diet, I feel fine normally, not starving, no headaches etc, until I had this one episode of dizziness/feeling faint and now I'm drained! My dr said it was just a feeling faint nothing else... Not overly happy with that diagnosis, it feels like more than that from my end

    Maybe it's low blood pressure! It's a common occurrence on a vlcd-if that's what yours actually is!(not sure with you saying that someone has 'formulated it' for you) take care x

    Low blood pressure is quite common, as has already been said. Try adding some salt to your food if possible. You can also clench your thighs a few times when feeling like that to help ypur blood get to your head.

    Lost 130lbs from July 2011 to June 2012. Have been maintaining since then but now have returned to lose the extra I put on whilst trying to work out how to maintain!

    You are drinking enough right ? Simple stuff but I often forget to drink as much as I should be doing and that makes me dizzy.
