I just started Atkins yesterday and have a splitting headache. Is this normal?

Hi and welcome...we are here to help and answer questions so don't worry about being a pest!

What you are feeling is absolutely normal...and is sometimes called the induction flu. You will feel very crappy for a few days, may have a headache...especially if you are withdrawing from carbs and caffeine at the same time (I had to wean myself off of caffeinated coffee slowly to minimize the headaches!).

Hang in there, do a clean induction as per the book, and in a few days you will feel fabulous!

Keep us posted on your progress.
