not the low carb flu -- that's typically the first week or two (unless you dramatically dropped carbs after a week). Sounds like a bad case of allergies.

Try to make convenient meals that can be cooked in bulk and reused; this makes sticking to the plan much easier, and when you're buying things in large quantity it usually helps with the cost as well.
