The Low Carb "Flu"

Ugh...the dreaded low carb "flu" is coming (or may already be here :/).

It's basically a "period of adjustment" when you cut way back on carbs and sugar and can end up with you feeling flu-like symptoms like fatigue, muscle cramps, headaches, dizziness and "brain fog."

I know it's coming and I know pretty much my own fault for going back to lots of carbs and crap but, yes, I am ready to deal with this and, yes, I know it's going to suck for a while, and, yes, I know I will feel great again soon!

I pretty much know what to expect by now and I know it will pass in about a week. In the meantime I can focus on good, healthy carbs, lot of protein and still getting myself to the gym.

I've also read that adding in more fat, water and salt can also help so I may give that a try this time around.

In the meantime, day 1 of low carb has gone really well food-wise and now I just need to stick with what I know works for my body so that I don't have to go through this again!
