    Same here, my legs have felt as though Ive ran miles some days and my arms, Ive just assumed its the low calorie intake?

    ooooh carebear, isn't it awful..i get light headed too, thankfully not all of the time, i have a headache now too :mad:

    I guess it;s the lack of carbs and cals and that's why we feel rubbish at times. I hope things improve for both of us hun x

    I felt like that at first but it passed after a few weeks - I put it down to having less fat to heft around! Sure it will get better ....

    Not had this in my legs but do come over feeling weak and faint at times. Seems to be getting a little better each day though so I hope it'll go soon.

    I've had that too Sophia Jo! Thought I was just really unfit! My room at work is being decorated so I was relocated up 4 flights of stairs & it was tough going but probably very good for me! As I got to the top I felt like I'd done an hour on the tread mill. Walked with the dog for 3 hours saturday though & am fine so maybe its just a thing that gets you early on. I suppose our bodies are busy using the few calories elsewhere, thats why we get cold too.

    I think this must be natural - last week, I got to the top of the stairs at work and said to a lady coming down that I felt as if I'd just done an hr's step class - other day's I run up them.

    I think women's bodies are so complex (hormones etc) and when you think of what your body is doing internally everyday - I think this diet is bound to cause some side effects...

    I have so much energy on this diet because of my PCOS - when I'm eating normally, I'm tired, no energy, bed by 9pm etc... carbs and caffine effect me quite diffently so most..

    Hope you get a CDC who replies..

    Hey SJ

    Have you had the cramp yet? That can be really bad - I get it in my calves - I think it's due to the lack of salt in the diet - maybe CDC can confirm that too?

    Night sweet... big day tomorrow.

    I have had the odd day where I have felt really tired, and lethargic with a kind of heavy feeling in my arms and legs.

    I have have found that an extra pack usually sorts me out nicely.

    For me I think there are some days when I am busy and my body needs a little bit more than my usual 3 CD packs a day.

    Interesting that you should mention cramp in your calves Hannah - I was suffering with this frequently up until about a month ago and now I am fine - ?? weird ?? It would be really interesting to know if anyone else has had this too?
