why are you eating mostly meat?

you will feel like crap for a while. It is your body detoxing.

Make sure you drink your water!!! Water helps to flush all that stuff out. Take something for the headache....in about 3 days you should be good.

I'm an induction re-starter, so I know where you are coming from. One of things I had tonight was mashed cauliflower, sour cream, cheese, and butter. Just microwave the cauliflower until soft, mash with a masher, and add the rest of the ingredients, with salt and pepper to taste. I plan to use it in place of mashed potatoes.

Take care,
Julie

my fave thing during induction is taco salad! Hamburger meat tossed on lettuce with cheese on top.
