Hey everyone, just wondering if any of you experienced any lightheadedness in the beginning of this diet. This is probably TMI, but my monthly visitor just started up and Im a little concerned about my iron intake due to the very limited amount of meat Im eating. I dont even know if that is for sure why Im feeling lightheaded. It may just be my bodys reaction to such a huge change in diet. I REALLY ate terribly before and to cut all that fat out so quickly is probably shocking my body. I dont mind shocking my body. It needed a pretty good shock. But I am a little concerned about the lightheadedness. Anyways, just wondered if anyone else experienced this. Oh and I am drinking PLENTY of water so I know its not dehydration.

Take care,
Tia Marie

First of all, you should definitely try to take a multi vitamin every day, and if you're worried about your iron levels, there are iron pills you can take or vitamins with extra iron in them. Myself, I hate the smell of vitamins so I eat the Flinstone's Chewable vitamins with iron (two per day) and that gets me most of my vitamins. Second of all, the lightheadedness gets me sometimes, I'm eating less (but I'm hungry less). Try eating some fruits with sugars in them, the sugars in fruits are better than processed sugars and they taste great. Red grapes are in season right now and practically taste like candy. I have friends who even freeze them and then eat them as treats. Also try apples, pineapples, peaches, etc. Often for lunch I'll just make myself a fruit smoothie with some non-fat yogurt, ice cubes, and whatever fruits I want to throw in there. Its delicious and filling and doesn't make me feel like I'm on a restricted diet. Hope that helps!

I experienced the lightheadedness throughout the detox phase. It was almost unbearable! I too was a huge eater, so I know my body was in shock. I tried to sleep a lot and just think of all of the weight I was losing. It paid off after the 9 days! I lost 8.5 pounds. Now I stay strict because the last thing I want to do is go back to the detox phase!
Stay strong!

Well...you could be getting lightheaded because you haven't eaten a lot that day.
Like don't hoard food or anything. But I've been like that before too, where either during or after my workout I feel lightheaded. Your blood sugar gets low, sometimes when you work out. So what I usually do is just eat something small, like a snack before you work out, or better yet after you work out, if during your work out you feel a little lightheaded than eat something small so that you don't have to work out those extra cals. during your workout.
anyways hope that works out for you, and I hope I made sense.
