First Couple Days
I'm 32 and my diet has been terrible for years. Just 2 days ago I started eating better and no junk food. I would load up on carbs, things like baked potatoes piled with sour cream and butter. Anyway, since I haven't been feeding my body like that now my heart is pounding. I feel like my body is in shock and it doesn't know how to react. I am medically fine, no major health issues. Has anyone else's body been in "shock" the first few days of starting a diet? Does this last long and any suggestion on how to help?

I should add, I do not drink caffeinated beverages, and I do not take weight loss pills.

Re: First Couple Days
Yes, you can feel strange the first few days on a new diet. May I ask what you are eating now?

Yes it's your body getting used to your new diet. You may experience headaches and stomach pains and even sleepiness like i did BUT it does eventually go! Eat more protein because it will fill you up and water, Don't give up!
