Default Headache?

Is it normal to have an annoying headache when starting phase one, first time ever on the diet? I got it about 1/2 way through day one and it's still here on day three, and didn't budge even with Tylenol or Advil. It's not terrible but a dull ache. DH thought maybe it was my reaction to lack of sugar (suggesting I was a bit addicted eh lol). It's weird because I just never have headaches. Anything I can do to help this thing? Thoughts?

You are detoxing! Be sure you eat legumes and get the full allotment of dairy and it will pass. Almost everyone gets it. We call it the SBD flu!

I honestly felt miserable the first three days. Then on day four it seems like I started feeling better. It does pass and seems to get easier! (I'm on day 7) Hang in there!

it's typical

have milk
have beans

if you were used to caffeine and are not having any, then that's another cause of it...

No worries, you'll feel better. I thought I was going to die on days 1-3. It will pass.

yep.....you've got the SBD Flu. It'll pass. It just simply means you're body is getting rid of the sugar it's been storing in it.
Be sure to also drink a lot of water in the next few days....SBD flu plus hot summer days makes for a rough go. Lots and lots of water will help.

Yup, I had headaches the first week of phase 1, too. Water did seem to help. Hang in there, it does get better .

Default SBD Flu Headaches...

Yes headaches are the norm with this diet, for the first couple days in Phase 1 - I have a headache for 3-4 days straight!

And then, thankfully it's all gone...so is about 15 pounds...
