    ...muscle pains and pins and needles in the hands, feet and legs at the end of day 2?
    I could just about explain the muscle pains to myself as something to do with lack of glycogen, but not sure about the pins and needles?
    I've drunk enough water to float : )

    Hiya

    It is quite common BUT as with all medical queries if you are concerned then give NHS Direct a call or your own GP for his/her advice.

    Thanks

    I believe it is to do with the change in sodium (salt) levels in your body - the same reason a lot of people get cramps when they start VLCD's. Most of us eat too much salt, so switching to lipotrim/CD/LL (where the salt level is balanced) causes the sodium levels to drop in the body. Here is an articale I found:

    Slow Sodium

    Please be aware though that all of these diets provide the right amount of sodium that we all need, however as most people are used to higher sodium levels in their food, the symptoms may be replicated. However they are only temporary. Also explains why some peoples blood pressure drops when they start VLCD's
