How quickly do you lose in phase 2?
I get ocular migraines also and yes, while withdrawing from carbs/sugars, it kicks the migraines into high gear. i was having 2-3 in a row. It was awful, but the first week is awful for everyone. It passes and you will feel much better. I don't think there is anyway around it for the type of diet this is (whether you start on the alternative plan-the one for diabetics-or the regular phase 1). You will have to go through the dairy/sugar/carb withdrawal in order to get into ketosis and lose weight rapidly. Try a little sea salt in water for the dizziness and make sure you take all your supplements and have the extra non-restricted packet the first week to see if it helps.
All I can tell you is that it is so worth it; hang in there and go back to phase 1 if you can. This too shall pass and you will be so glad you stuck with it!
