I'm on day 4 too. Today I didn't find myself comatose by 2 p.m. and haven't taken a nap for the first time since starting the diet.
but I still feel tired.
You're probably getting headaches from the lack of coffee. The book does not recommend cutting out caffiene and carbs at the same time, be nice to yourself
But this afternoon I'm still finding myself hungry for some reason... I took the advice of others here and have stuck to on plan foods. I just finished a glass of veggie juice. I got a differnt kind than I'd been buying because I discovered one of the ingredients in the veggie-10 juice I bought at Trader Joe's has corn syrup! I think that I must be EXTRA sensistive to carbs. Even some of the good carbs...
I don't know how little time you have the in morning, I'm in college too and frequently have to leave the house before 6 AM. When I was doing another low carb program I found cottage cheese with a little freeze dried dill on top to be one of my favorite things. The pasturized eggs (the kind that come in a quart container) really take no time at all to cook up if you have 5 minutes for breakfast.
I am finding this diet expensive (having spent over $200 on groceries to get started)
I saw that someone else had commented on how expensive it is to eat "well" and how cheap it is to eat things that are bad for us. Funny thing is that years ago while working with a non-profit that delivered food to some of Orange County, California's poorest people I found myself (as an overweight person) having to explain to someone that was considering NOT donating money to our food bank program that the obesity that he saw in our clients living in pay-by-the-week motels a direct result of a very unique kind of malnutrition that exists almost only in the United States.
