HELP!! Severe diarrhea on first week? Anyone else had this issue?
 
Hate to be so graphic but every time I eat I immediately get sick (diarrhea and watery diarrhea) not taking appetite suppressants. Following plan. Anyone else have/had this issue. I did loose 7.5 in my first six day (today is day 7) and I just feel awful. Advice? Dr said most get constipated and was "shocked" to hear this and recommended taking Imodium.

This is not a typical side effect of a high protein low carb diet. You may just be getting sick.

I don't think I'm getting sick that's the thing. It's just so strange. Maybe all the protein isn't agreeing with me? I hope it passes soon because this is awful.

Metamucil helps bulk up your stool. Have a tablespoon in a glass of water.

Week one is over and that has subsided! Thanks god!!! I am not sure if I will show a weight loss this week because yesterday I went over on calories. :( Kind of feel bummed but correcting it today!

Me too!
 
I get this everytime I restart. From what I researched it is a sign or symptom of ketosis. So even though it's annoying it's a good sign. Just drink tons of water to make sure you don't become dehydrated.
