    hi woofy -- no meds but started my vitamins (multti, flax seed and fish oil)...

    how much water should we be drinking -- maybe i am not drinking enough, even though i thought 2 liters was!

    I would suggest seeing a dr as something may be raising your blood pressure ( im a paramedic by the way). Ive not heard of this as a side affect of ketosis.

    thanks ladies for your advice -- including the medical aspect!

    what I did last night was drink more water til I couldnt take anymore -- and today I have felt wonderful (drinking much more water than I was) -- engerized and raring to go all day! I have also wee'd 8 times...

    so no flushed face today :)

    but I noticed when I hadnt eaten for a few hours (cuz I am just not hungry) and then I missed dinner...around 9 pm I was feeling foggy-headed -- I quickly ate my can of tuna and salad and felt a physical relief instanteously!

    so food consumption is dire...even when not hungry...

    thanks again for the advice! any more tips...feel free to share!
