    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.

    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.
