Zoerba I'm with Carol on the salt and water. Especially in the beginning I many times would just lick the salt right off my hand when I felt woozy followed by a big glass of water - helped a lot. But if you have a medical condition that makes you prone to fainting to start with you really should check with your doctor.
Check out the recipe threads and the alternatives thread - lots of great ideas to give you some variety. Also check out the What Are You Eating thread, a lot of the people who post there use alternatives.
Best of luck to you and we're glad you're here to share your journey with us!
