Hi Sarah,

In Atkins terminology, what you are experiencing is referred to as "Induction Flu"....basically, it is your body detoxing of carbs & sugar. While you may feel odd for a few days, it is perfectly normal & your body will adjust.

All the best to you!!!

Kim

When I first started low carb dieting I said no to my own birthday cake. I'm sorry to tell you, it is miserable! But it doesn't last long. You will actually notice a better physical feeling and increased mental clarity after a short while. Hang in there!
