    Hi all,

    I'm new to Dukan having tried everything from slimming world to atkins.

    I'm on the second day of attack and i feel ROUGH :raincloud:

    I feel so sick, i ache all over and my head feels like it's splitting in two - is this normal??? Never experienced anything like this on atkins so not sure if i'm just coming down with a bug?

    Thanks

    Hi, Jonsgirl. Nice to meet you!

    Quite a few of us experience the horrible headache for a few days during Attack. It can make you feel pretty rough. I'm not sure about all of those other symptoms, though. Maybe you are coming down with a virus after all?

    Do you have a sore throat or diarrhoea and vomiting?

    Sorry to hear that you're having a bad time with it.

    Sorry to hear you are experiencing this, poor you...
    Hopefully it's not a bug! The "normal" reasons might be getting carb withdrawal symptoms, which might continue until you settle into ketosis; often this happens when you are dehydrated, so keep an eye on your water intake and go easy on salty and fizzy stuff till you feel better. If you like herbal teas, Pukka's range are just great - P. cleanse, P. detox, P. 3 peppermint, P. 3 ginger, all taste OK and seem to make drinking water easier.
    Get better soon! :flowers:
    (and don't eat the flowers until you get to Cruise...)

    Hiya,

    I stopped atkins in july (then went onto slimming world)

    I did atkins for 3 months and lost 23 pounds.

    I only stopped doing it because i felt sick with the amount of fat i was consuming.

    ok i think,

    Feel much better a bit achy again today but think that's because i'm doing exercise which i'm totally not used to.

    Glad my attack phase is over on saturday - it will have been a very long six days by the time i finish

    Six days is a long time on attack. Why not move tomorrow, Saturday, into Cruise and enjoy some vegetables and salad this weekend. (Your intestines will thank you!)

    Five days is plenty!
