Atkins headache?
Oct 3, 2003
... I am on day 5 of Atkins. For the last 3 mornings I have woke up with a severe headache. Is anyone else experiencing this? Is it some type of withdrawl from sugar, caffeine, etc? I was ok the first 2 days, then the headaches started. I hope this ends soon! Thank you for any reply. Gail (2 replies)
... I am A positive, but I have read articles similar to your references here. Most people are type O, so it may be a majority rules type of thing. As far as defeating depression with no drugs, that is absolutely fantastic. I know many people who have given in to the Doc and bought those anti-depressants. In my opinion, and some may disagree, I think those drugs screw up your... (16 replies)
... You all are making me feel so good. Reading your success stories (go DAN!) is motivating as well. Sometimes I feel like the lone Low Carb Commando where ever I go. I can't stand the ridiculous myths that are perpetuated about this diet. Mainly by the media, who are supposed to report facts (yeah right) and not make judgements. Right after the bankruptcy thing I saw a... (16 replies)

... I've been low carbing for 2 years now. I was 35 years old when I started and I wished I had known about it sooner. It wasn't hard for me to NOT eat the foods, but the side effects of not having them was. The fountain coca colas always made me feel like crap, the french fries always gave me a stomach ache, but when I eliminate them, I felt great after eating. My side effects... (16 replies)

... Think about how difficult it must be for the body to convert from using sugar as it's main fuel to using fat as it's fuel. That's why you get a headache and a weak feeling. It's a huge adjustment but a healthy one. It's bascially withdrawal from a "drug. ... (16 replies)
... is white things, like sugar, rice, potatoes, flour, white bread etc. But veges are wonderful good carbs and no one who does low carb right limits these. As for Atkins filing bankruptcy. Do you realize the "Atkins Company" is just a company with his name on it. Dr. ... (16 replies)
... OH, absolutely! You can have sugar withdrawals just like you can have withdrawals from cigarettes, alcohol, or even caffeine! I'm sure you've heard of coffee drinkers getting a headach when trying to kick their caffeine habit.?..?..? It's great that you are trying to cut back on sugar and "bad" carbs, but don't forget to keep eating "good" carbs. The whole low-carb thing... (16 replies)

... I'm 5'5"-5'6" 170lbs, about as weak (muscle wise) as a 7 year old girl...*not to offend any 7 year old girls here?* :D . So I have a pretty good sized beer belly. I'm hoping to lose a great deal of that weight by the summer. Is that possible with Atkins and about an hour of the air strider (its one of those walking gliding machines that...I think there's a popular one... (50 replies)
... But planning on going on Atkins only until you lose the weight is not the best approach. Cutting carbs is a long term venture. With Atkins one starts by severely limiting carbohydrates and then adding them back gradually. ... (50 replies)
... so is atkins worth buying? ... (50 replies)
... Yes, as a person suffering from systematic candida, fruits are bad for me. Most people can handle them, as they can handle candy bars, food coloring, white bread, etc. with no problems. These foods, including fruit, will literally make me sick. As my health improves, I hope to be able to add fruit back to my diet in small amounts, no more than one piece of fruit a day. (50 replies)
... I think you are misunderstanding the concept. When people do Atkins, the induction phase is designed to accomplish two things. Stabilize the blood sugar Promote the burning of stored fat. Carbs inhibit the burning of fat due to the insulin produced. Insulin actually blocks the burning of fat stores as a protective mechanism to prevent fat from competing with glucose for...

... No one i know has ever had weight problems because of fruit. The problem with atkins is that they treat white sugar the same as sugar in fruits. Thats not correct. Sure the body converts both to glucose but white sugar is bad and fruits are not. ... (50 replies)
... Everybody disagreeing with the Atkins way of life is confusing the entire diet with the first 2 week "induction" period. ... (50 replies)
... JBT.. We are not arguing, just sharing differing opinions. The whole objective is to achieve nutrition while stabilizing blood sugar levels, regardless of your diet. Over time, glucose and insulin swings lead to diabetes, heart disease, and early aging. A high carb diet is more inclined to bring about the above mentioned swings, but you can't feel them. The only thing... (50 replies)

... Not only is ketosis NOT dangerous for us, there is considerable evidence that it is the type of energy metabilism we were evolved to live by. High carbohydrate diets, in fact a consistent intake of any large amount of carbohydrates throughout the year (outside of a narrow peak growing season), did not occur until after the introduction of agriculture, and even more, until...

... If someone is checking for ketone bodies in their urine as a sign of progress on a low carb diet, that means they are striving for ketosis, which by definition means consumption of insufficient carbohydrates for the brain and nervous system. (50 replies)
