    Hi

    Does anyone else suffer headaches while on slimfast? I am on my first day and by the afternoon my head was throbbing. I have drank over 3litres of water/juice so I shouldnt be dehydrated.....

    I vaguely remember this from when I did slimfast years ago too, im wondering if it is just me haha

    I think on any diet this can happen, I found it too for a few days, also I had heart palpitations, I'm guessing it might be to do with blood sugar? Make sure you space out your snacks and meals so you don't ever feel starving. It DOES get easier ;)

    Thanks guys, I can feel one coming on again today so I am downing a load of water right now to see if that helps, also just had a banana. Not sure how many calories are in a decent sized banana but i'm sure it would be fine for my snack.

    Hi Rowan, no I haven't given up tea/coke. I only drink about 4 cups of tea a day anyway and dong like coffee, we only buy coke at weekends or special occassions lol

    I think it was just the shock go the system of the diet! I did end up with one yesterday too but a lot milder and didn't last as long.. So fingers crossed for today

    I get that with too much caffeine! I'm quite intolerant to it and get hot and have heart palpitations and stuff, but I do love a latte or a cuppa!! Has it subsided now? Hope you're feeling better ;)
