Hi Sue!
Yes, I felt gross too..then AP suggested that I up my calories because they were too low..I also added more veggies even though you arnt really supposed to..mostly zucchini.
I feel so much better now. It was like night and day.
P.s. I even snuck some fruit in..I made a shake with 1/2 c blueberrys, 3 strawberrys, and a atkins shake in a blender. mmm... I feel much better now?

Thanks Amber, I did start adding fruit back in. I hate feeling this way. I feel like a truck ran over me.

Are you taking supplements too? I felt terrible until I took the vitamins and other supplements that were required on the diet. You only have to be on Induction for 2 weeks (more if you want) and then add back the veggies and some kinds of fruit (mostly berries). Hope you feel better!
It's crummy feelin crummy!

Yes Im taking vitamins and other supplements and I added CLA also.
Feel really washed out like Im starving to death.
Tried doing what Roy said also that you should drink half of your weight in water everyday and I felt like a floating fool. Hopefully all of this will pass. I do cheat on this diet but I guess Im not eating enough although I feel Like I am.
thanks for everyones imput.
