Turns out I must have some allergy towards coconut products. I didn't eat any all morning and felt fine, then ate something cooked in coconut oil and the symptoms emerged. It's really weird, I get light-headed instantly fatigued and feel like... (more)

You are describing low salt and/or hydration problems. Its a common problem for VLC diets. A salty bowl of broth everyday should solve the problem. It'll take a few days and you're gonna be thirsty!

I have this - it is a mineral issue. For me, making sure I eat enough salt REALLY helps. I add a little salt to my water sometimes, and freely salt my food (I don't have much of a taste for salt, so I still don't use much). Those of us who don't... (more)

From what I've learned, the former is literally an empty stomach and a need to eat for fuel and nutrients, and the latter is low blood sugar or a "crash." Stabilizing my blood sugar has completely eliminated the second set of symptoms for me,... (more)

Here you go: "Only three days in..." You're going through a detox of sorts. It sucks, but it is part of it. Keep eating well, try to get some quality sleep.
