I`ve tried to do Atkins like 2 or 3 times before, but havenīt been successful and I really donīt know why, maybe someone who has more experience or more success can help me. What usually happens is that I start strong for around 3 days, I donīt get cravings during those days and I feel well and strong. But on days 4, 5, 6 (the most I`ve lasted) I feel sluggish, with no energy, craving sweets like crazy (my mouth waters like a dog when I think of a piece of bread, chocolate, pasta), I get dizzy all the time and canīt sleep at all.
I feel I am all wrong because I`ve read that usually you feel bad with cravings and low energy for the first 2-3 days and when you get in ketosis it all changes, so usually on day 4 you start feeling better, but for me itīs the other way round, I feel good until day 3 or 4 and when I`m supposed to feel better I start feeling horrible. I know I was in ketosis, but I feel like crap.. and because of that feeling I gave up. I should do this because my doctor told me to go low carb (Insulin resistance) but really donīt know what to do, I take a good multivitamin, drink like 10 glasses of water and have my veggies... can someone help??? Please?
