Feeling rough

and no one seems to be around.

I am on day 5 of this diet. I was on PP for 3 days and now doing 2/2 PP and PV. Since yesterday I have had a shocking headache, I feel dizzy slightly, too. To match the headache, I ache all over my back - initially, I thought it was something internal but now I realise that I must have worked some muscles in yesterday's run.

How long am I likely to feel this way?

Hopefully not long, I think its a sign you're going into ketosis and your body is burning fat which is a good thing. Also the back pain may well be from using some muscles that aren't used to being worked, usually thats a good sign to take a day off from running whilst your muscles rest, you don't want to over do it.

hey hon. sorry you are feeling rubbish :(
sure sounds like ketosis babe - i usually have that every tuesday lol

and your back prob is from the running. Take it easy go and have a nap and no exercise today!!!!
... surely I'm going to be in ketosis for the major part of this diet? That's about 85 days for me! - which means I'm going to feel like this for the duration????

Hugs x
