I started yesterday and was feeling awful too, but I didn’t eat that much sugar before as I was trying to diet to lose weight. Although on Sunday before I started I did overload myself with sugar, bad carbs and caffeine because I knew I wouldn’t be able to do it again for some time.
I am feeling a bit better today. Woke up with a headache but after taking some high strength paracetamol am feeling a bit better.
I reckon feeling that way is probably a mixture of things including caffeine withdrawal and it’s a shock to the system making such drastic changes to your diet. It does make you feel like crying and giving up but the thing that’s keeping me going is knowing one day I will be free of this illness and be in much better health.
I don’t think we are allowed rice cakes in stage one unless there are no additives and it’s made from brown rice, but we are allowed xylitol which I use in fruit tea and in plain yoghurt. That might help, but I reckon the cravings will go away in a few days once your body has adjusted to the massive change.
