    Hi all.

    I am a 42 year old female looking to lose probably around 1.5 stones. I have no problems with my blood sugars as far as I know (although I do have PCOS which can cause problems with insulin resistance).
    I am on day 4 of the diet and yesterday felt a bit light headed, however today, I have been very wobbly and actually feel as if I could be sick. Has anyone else experienced nausea / faintness? I’m trying to make sure I am drinking enough so not sure its dehydration.

    I posted a link to an article a few weeks ago on the Take a look at this thread which explains why our bodies manage salts and hydration differently when on a carb rich diet to low carb diet. – And how the initial “carb flu” stage of the journey can be because you need to add salt to your diet. – You may find it helpful.

    – There are lots of other links on that thread to different podcasts that make useful background reading as you continue on this journey.
