South Beach Diet - starting back on SBD-feeling tired :(

10-10-2013, 03:12 PM
I have started back on this week after gaining all the 80lbs back I lost in 2007 on SBD. I am feeling really tired. Today would be day 4. Does anyone have any suggestions to combat this? Thanks

It is the SB flu :) don't worry it passes in a few days. It is your body's natural reaction to "detoxing" from what we "used" to fuel ourselves with. VERY common. Just hang in there it will pass. Have herbal tea or coffee it helped me....oh and sneak in a nap if you can.

I'll also suggest lots of water and don't hesitate to eat enough calories. The snacks are an important part of Phase I.

Beans and dairy are also supposed to help with the SBD flu.

I gave myself permission on P1 to take it a little bit easier than usual....go to bed early...It really helped me get through because there were times that I felt just plain ol tired. I seem to remember day 11 I was exhausted.

Best wishes!
