Talking Beach Newbie

[Hi Everyone. I just wanted to say I think this is a fantastic website and I think you are all wonderful. What a great support group you have here. I feel so lucky to have found this!

I am on day two of the Beach Diet. I have had a headache the last two days that creeps around in the evening time I am wondering if thats a result of my sugar craving in my body?

I have also been cooking all day! But I have enjoyed it!

I moved to Texas three years ago and put on about 30 pounds! I can't believe I let it go for this long. Iam determined to get my body back and take better care of myself and QUIT thinking about food all the darn time! Those are my main goals.

Thank you for listening. Any advice is appreciated Y'all have a great night and I look forward to joining this group!

Default Headaches

Welcome to the Beach!!

Yes, headaches are typical! You are detoxing from the sugar. I had a headache the first night till the next morning. Just make sure you eat every 2 hours so your insulin level stays down.

I was never a cook and I've been loving it too! Believe it or not, you actual forget to eat!! I have to teach myself to keep my eye on the clock. I don't want to gain weight just because I was late on eating. I'm on my 9th day and it gets easier all the time. My DH tells me not to give him so much food for work, our stomachs have definately shrunk! We eat more veggies than anything else. What a change in life this has been!!

So, enjoy

Welcome, karen!
The headaches, or other similar symptoms, will only last a couple of days, like Barb said. Just eat plenty of food from the allowed list, and in a couple of days you'll feel better than ever.
Good luck on SBD!

I, too, had headaches. Days 2 & 3....hated them, and it worried me until I asked and was told "normal'.

Glad you are here.

Welcome TexasGirl! Glad you are joining our group. Be sure to check in on the daily thread, that's where a lot of people check in each day with updates, etc.

I think you'll really like this new way of life....I know I do. I've only been on this healthy new lifestyle for one week now, and I can already feel such a difference in how I feel (not to mention, I lost 6.5 pounds my first week). And it definitely will get easier as you go along, your body will adjust, and you won't have to think so hard about what you can and what you shouldn't eat.

Have a great day, and again, welcome!!

Hi Texas Girl,

I grew up in Georgetown, outside of Austin.

I, too, had a headache last night (day 2) and I just feel a little achy all over today. I was wondering if was a cold or part of the plan. I guess I'll hope it will go away eventually like everyone has suggested.

Good luck!
