To combat it, I drank a little soda and felt myself get more in touch with reality.. however my weird brain fog came when I started drinking the soda. I had to leave work because I was worried I was going to pass out completely.
It gets MUCH easier as time goes on. If you were experiencing that after only a day and a half, it’s definitely not die-off like everyone above said. That takes many days to start happening. Think about it… yeast doesn’t just start dying when you get hungry. lol
What you were experiencing was simply put: lack of sugar. I went through the same thing. Most of us live our lives with a regular sugar intake throughout the day, and our bodies learn to function in a way that utilizes that sugar. When you take it away, your body needs to switch to a new method of processing food, one that converts complex foods like protein and whole grains into sugar instead of just getting the sugar directly. When you make this switch fast, your body hasn’t yet had enough time to become accustomed to the new diet, and so your sugar levels were probably very low, which gives you trouble thinking and extreme exhaustion.
I remembering thinking “if this is what it’s going to feel like for the next two months, I quit.” but by the third day, I felt much better. I’m now three weeks in, and I literally don’t even have sugar cravings anymore.
It gets much easier homie.
