    Hi All
    Today whilst waiting in hospital for my husband to have his knackers off ( i can say this as i will probably never meet any of you) i suddenly felt faint, my hearing went muffled and i really thought that i was going to pass out, i had to sit down of course my hubby thought that i was trying to up stage him..... but joking apart. it really frightened me, i've also had a headache for the last few days
    has anyone experienced this ?
    i don't want to come off the diet yet, but don't want to risk my health
    Thanks Sam

    Hey, he should've been fainting not you:eek:

    Seriously though Sam, I suffered from dizzy spells quite a lot, still do but now it's down to low blood pressure following my op. Keep drinking loads of water and when you get up, from a chair or out of bed, do it slowly, don't just jump up suddenly. I can't remember at what point it stopped happening but I guess that it must've ......when you think people pay to feel that light-headed!

    Hey Budkin,

    I'm in a similar boat to you. I had a funny spell on Monday when I was on the tube. I suddenly came over really faint, jumped off the tube at the earliest opportunity, managed to get outside before passing out on the steps...People immediately told me to come off the diet, but I'm almost certain it was my high caffeine intake (I had about 10 cups of black coffee the day before), so I've switched to decaf and i'm hoping it won't happen again. Could this also be the same for you? I really don't want to come off this diet either as seeing some really good results.

    I hope you're feeling better x

    Don't panic about this. On TFR the calorie intake is very low so occasionally you will have dizzy spells when you either do too much, or move too quickly or are a bit stressed as you would have been today. Keep up your water intake and don't worry about it unless it is happening all day every day.

    Hi Trose
    I've had two days of feeling really crappy, up to this point it's been plain sailing apart from the hunger, i hope that i feel better tomorrow, i suppose that near starvation takes it's toll,
