Today was day five on Atkins. So far so good, I think, except two problems:
1) I feel like h*ll. After some thought, I've realized it's probably because I am so not hungry that the thought of eating makes me feel gross, so I don't eat, so I feel worse, and it's a vicious cycle. After I managed to force down a little soup and stir-fry at lunchtime today, I started feeling human, and after some more stir-fry at dinner I felt like a new person.
So I think it's just mornings. When I wake up, is there some tip or trick for forcing down breakfast when the thought makes me want to hurl? Or will this pass?
2) Insomnia. I get to sleep just fine, but wake up at a ridiculous hour, drenched in sweat, suffering from bizarre dreams, and can't get back to sleep. Will this pass?
Any of this sound normal?
