Headaches when in ketosis?

It can be - especially during the first week. The best thing is to take a couple of painkillers first thing and that will take the edge off before they even start!!! Also, drinking the water really helps! ;)

Remember if taking Ibuprofen to take with a shake never on an empty stomach as this can inflame the stomach lining.

The headaches should soon subside, they can be due to carb withdrawal or not enough water.

Louisa, do you have one? My first time starting LL I had no problems whatsoever, however, 2 other restarts the headaches were god awful, just like having a migraine, but only lasted a day or so. This restart minimal headache sorted with paracetemol.
