I am just starting my second day of SS, and my head is heavy and achey - is this just caffeine withdrawal? I normally would drink two litres or more or diet coke a day, which obviously I'm not anymore!
Probably a combination of caffeine and carb withdrawal then - most people feel grotty to some extent at some time during the first week.
Take a couple of painkillers, keep up your water intake, and if you can grab a hug and/or a nap all the better!
Thanks Had some painkillers and drank some more water, I do feel a bit better. I did manage a nap after work yesterday (not something I normally do), but sadly I don't really have time to sleep nevermind nap for the next couple of months!
The hug sounds like a good idea though, always time for that
Hey, I had a stonking head ache all through day 2, then woke up on day 3 feeling bloody fantastic Like you I used to drink 2+ litres of coke/diet coke a day so yeah I think it is significant. But as PP said it is also the last of your carb supplies leaving your body, and your body adjusting to not having a fresh supply to burn
Fingers crossed you will be in Ketosis in the next day or 2
