atkins/efgs/severe headaches
Been doing Atkins the went higher fat the last month and a half. Lost 15 pounds. But now severe headaches. Don't know if it is even related to the diet. But does anyone else get really painful headaches? Blood pressure is ok.

Maybe it's salt retention..or did you quit real coffee??

Just an update after a whole month. Headaches were short loved for about a week weaning off caffeine and adjusting to induction. Now can do VLC or zero carb, no fluid, high energy. But eating out even when trying to watch for hidden ingredients usually messes me up a day. Eating at home is a must. Doing good at holiday parties. didn't even get out of ketosis. But did bloat half an inch the next day. Throwing in a few deviled eggs to get rid of it. One more party this season then I'm done. I eat before I go and that helps.

Good for you, Fire fly. Honestly, eating out is tricky when we are LCing..I do it, but you can never tell what's in things..:) Glad your headaches are better, girl.
