Brandi Lei, it's not that you can't eat carbs...it's that you have to be very selective on which carbs you eat, and how much of them, to turn your body into a fat burning machine.
It all comes down to personal choice. If you are experiencing withdrawls, headaches, generally feeling run down, etc... during the first few days, this is quite normal. But you really have to make a clean break from the 'processed foods' (box, packaged, etc), and the worst offenders... like breads, (some variations are out there that are low carb), pastas, rice, potatoes, etc... Think white...white flour, white rice, white breads, white pastas, etc... eliminate those for two weeks...and see how you feel.
During this time, be prepared to increase your protein and fat intake during the week. And of course, eat lots of veggies. Whole healthy, natural foods... clean out your body from this 'old' way of eating... and you will bounce back with a new healthy attitude, a feeling of increased energy, and a new focus on learning about eating a whole new lifestyle. And you'll feel good, and be losing the pounds at the same time!!!
Live, Love, Laugh ...make each day memorable and enjoy the journey.
