: : : Hi. I recently went on a high protein diet. I tried it once, and vomited the next day, and gave up. I am now
: : : tryin it again. I am on my third day. Yesterday, I vomited, today, I feel very quezy. A little bit about myself,
: : : I am very active. I run, and exercize on a regular basis. Before I started the high protein diet, I consumed
: : : tons and tons of carbs. Is my body going into shock, or could I have a sugar problem. Thanks!

: : What kind of protein are you eating? The real thing (meat, eggs, cheese, etc.) or some powdered concoction? I can't recommend the powdered stuff, at least not as your primary source of protein. It may be ok as an occasional supplement, but there is no real substitute for meat. If you are eating the real thing, and still having problems, you may want to ease into it by just giving up the sugars and cutting back on the starch at first and gradually increasing protein intake. Also, have you had a checkup with bloodwork recently to ensure that you don't have some underlying problem? Alan S.

: : Jodi, I also vomited when I went on the Atkins diet. I was on it for 1 week & was unable to eat anything without vomiting. I was eating salads, steak, fish, chicken & lots of cheese. The only good thing that I can say about this diet is that once you are done with it, you don't want to eat any of that fatting food for a LONG time!! I'm still looking for that "quick fix" diet. Hoping that this board may help. Good luck to you on your quest!

Have you tried Slim Fast--It is better. Use it to replace 2 meals a day!
