Ideal Protein Diet - How Your Body May Initially Respond

Do you still continue to experience some or most of the common early side effect consequences? How often, have you discovered the causes, and what tips can you share to help eliminate or minimize them.

From the lack of response, it seems to most of you don't have any ongoing issues and/or they are mild and have been resolved.

I still get hungry. It is usually after some exercise or when I've not been eating enough veggies. I've been slacking in the veggie department the last few weeks. When I'm hungry I make myself wait to see if it will pass. If not I have something to drink and wait again eating if it doesn't pass.

Sorry, work got busy and I couldn't get on after lunch again. I still get light headed once and a while or a headache, a lick of salt helps. I get hungry once and a while, but it is emotional or stress hunger and I can tell the difference now (normal hunger = mild irritation that just kind of hangs around, stress hunger = instantly starving and feel able to eat an entire buffet). Depending on how hungry I am I'll try to push through it if I'm between meals, but if it gets too bad I'll have my third packet (or shake in my case) of the day.
Exercise helps with the mood swings, lots of water helps with digestion problems, and I admit I use more olive oil than most in my cooking, but I've had no constipation this whole time, and I attribute that as part of the success.
