    Hello All

    I am on day 5 and I still feel awful! Is this normal? I feel exausted and really quite sick - Is this just my body going through the motions? I dont have as bad headaches today but have NO energy

    Any help or advice would be really appreciated

    Hopefully your headaches are just carb withdrawal and should ease up in next day or so. Are you drinking enough water. I aim for three to four litres a day but make sure you keep drinking little and often as taking slot if water all at once can make you feel grotty as it dilutes all your sodium and potassium levels.
    Keep going. It will pass and you do find yourself with amazing energy levels. x x x

    Im on day 4 of my VLCD and I'm feeling the same.. But super struggling with cooking for my kids more than anything :(

    Have any of your sleeping habits changed? I'm finding that I'm sleeping so heavily now, before I would toss and turn in sleep and never reach deep sleep but now, I wake up in the same position I sleep in and feel so achy and heavy??

    MissNJ, I'm the opposite :( I wake up about 3:30 to 4am and can't sleep again! But then I don't feel too tired after it gets to about 9am, until 9:30pm. Then I'm knackered due to lack of sleep the night before. I hate the tossing and turning!
