Well, it’s true. When you’ve been off off the plan (low-cal/low-carb/low-fat ketosis diet) and you slam your body into gear to get back on the plan, dropping back under 1000 cal/day, you will go through the hell of the first 4/5 days again.
I am on day 5 and the headache is finally gone, but I’ve also dropped 3 lbs…my body ridding itself of the glycogen stores, I’m sure, along with the excess water I’ve been retaining from eating higher carbs.
I feel good today. Lighter and more with it. I need to remember this feeling and not lose it. Eating cake was certainly NOT worth the 3 days of mood swings and blinding headaches. I know that now for sure!
Lunch today was a nice green salad with lots of “stuff” and dill cucumber chips (Nally’s Surfboards – my favorite) topped with some tuna salad made with hard boiled eggs and low-fat mayo. Was very yummy!
