Sounds like "Induction Flu". You can expect it to last a few days. Be sure you are taking a good multivitamin, eating plenty of veggies & you are drinking lots of water. It will be over soon.

You CAN do this!!

All the best to you!!

I agree with Kim

Remember the more water you drink, the more of the carb "leftovers" gets flushed out of your system.
