    The new atkins book suggests adding salt to your food, half a teaspoon throughout the day and that helps with the side effects. It's worked for me :), maybe it'll help you x

    I have been in bed with a migraine for the past 2 days straight. Once it started raining it cleared a little. Maybe it's because of the air pressure?

    Yes, it's in the new atkins book, says that if you add salt or have salty broth from the start it helps the side effects of the diet

    I find a few salty cashews always helps, but not too many, they are a bit moreish.

    ...or bacon. :D

    Joking aside, I've been wondering if my headaches over the last few days have been related to low salt levels, as indicated by the '72 DADR book. Interestingly, after having a *cough* generous *cough* portion of bacon for breakfasts, I've been feeling decidedly better.

    Best way to get more salt in for my money. YMMV. :D
