My center says that you may experience headaches when you get into ketosis. I looked this up and some of the symptoms such as cold hands and feet are some of the things I was experiencing too. I don't know if that is you guys reason for having headaches but it could be?

It could also be the caffeine withdrawals, in the beginning I had headaches (nothing like a migraine though) from the withdrawals when switching to decaf coffee (still miss my leaded coffee). It only lasted about 4-5 days and since then I've had no other problems, just minor aches and pains from getting older *sigh*.

I had headaches in the beginning too. Headaches are an unpleasant symptom of de-toxing. I don't drink caffeine, so it wasn't from that. Likely for me it was sugar.

The red food coloring used in a lot of stuff is a known headache/migraine trigger for many people and I know the Wildberry HNS has it, and I think the grape - so you may want to check into that.

I experienced the coldness symptoms of ketosis later on, but the headaches were only the first week or two.

Oh wow....I've been drinking the red HNS's. Tossing those to the side tonight to see if I notice a difference.

I will have to look at everything. I know strawberries and red onions trigger migraines for me. Never even thought about the red dye. I didn't have a headache yesterday.. I also cut back on my vit b. wondering if that had anything to do with it.
