Feeling dizzy

#1
Sorry if this is in the wrong place??

I am now into my 4th week and I am mainly following red days as I find it works best for me but for the last few days I am getting headaches and feeling very dizzy and lightheaded all the time. My husband says it is because I am not having enough carbs in my diet and checking out the internet it sounds like he might be right. I usually use my HEs as ryvita with my salad or snacks. I am eating plenty during the day and never feel really hungry. I just wondered if anyone else has experienced this.
:confused:

It does say in my SW book that you should try to include a few green days in your week, which I assume means doing all red isn't recommended. I did Atkins a few years ago and constantly felt dizzy, I had to stop in the end when I fainted on a train. I imagine doing all red days might produce a similar effect.

Have you tried EE? I always used to follow just red or green and always felt something was missing on those days - I got the headaches, tummy aches etc - on EE I can have everything in moderation and as I have cut out bread totally i can still have my carb fix from rice, potatoes and pasta etc.
remember no kind of eating plan should make you feel unwell.
Hope things improve for you.

Are you drinking enough? Carbs help our bodies to hold onto water so if you're having mainly red days, you could be slightly dehydrated which can cause dizziness. I followed the atkins diet for over a year in the past and you do need to drink plenty as the water is flushed out (great no water retention with *week tho!!)
