I am in Phase 1 of the SBD, I had black beans for lunch today. I felt so full and a bit sleepy. Is that normal? are there to many carbs in black beans to introduce them back into my diet so soon?

My concern is that I could have reversed my ketosis.Sad Thoughts please

Black beans are the recommended legume during phase 1. I'm not sure about ketosis. I lost my weight on SB and maintained over a year now following SB but I don't know what ketosis has to do with SB.
Are you keeping a thorough food diary? I have seen that help a lot here. Sorry I cant help out more but I really have no idea what you're talking about.

When adopting a low carb way of life, your liver converts fats (fatty acids) to fuel rather that carbs (glucose) to fuel. Therefore, you are in a state of forced state of ketosis.

Thanks for the response, I figure that I probably ate more than I have in the last few days and that is where the uncomfortable fullness may stem from.

I'll have to learn more about that. You're right though about how you felt. When I started cutting back my meat and carb intake, I couldn't believe how full and sluggish I'd feel after having a meal with them both.
Keep up the great work.

Only certain low carb eating plans rely on ketosis. SB doesn't, although some people (not all) experience it during Phase 1. SB relies on eating satisfying foods that contain good carbs and good fats. The good carbs digest slowly and don't provoke those nasty insulin peaks which result in carb cravings and the endless cycle of carb eating. I did carb addicts--no long term ketosis for me but I did lose weight. I know I wasn't experiencing it because I tested for it (I was losing weight to donate my kidney to my brother). I won't get into the ketosis good/ ketosis bad debate but I did need to keep the transplant people happy. I doubt I'm in ketosis now based on how many carbs I'm eating (my nutritionist wants me to eat 1 cup legumes a day). I would say if quicker weight loss is required, then Atkins would be a better fit. I know a few people who did Atkins for lose the bulk of their weight and transitioned into SB or Carb Addicts because they found it way to restrictive for long term eating. I also know a lot of people on Atkins for years who are totally healthy.
