I am on Day 4 of Phase 3 ... and to be honest I havenīt felt well at all today or yesterday. I seemed to have no problems as I went through most of Phase two and even the last 72 hours of VLCD (weaning off my drops) , but now even though I am eating more calories I feel like total crap (really weak, sensations like I am going to black out) for the first time since VLCD #1 ... Is this common? Do I somehow have my calories wrong? My current weight is 150 and I am managing not to fluctuate very much, I am trying to eat 1700 calories a day, but limiting myself to two fruit servings so as not to go overboard on carbs. Today I added a second egg to my breakfast and a wedge of cheese, I ate about 150 grms of tuna with a wedge of cream cheese and celery sticks for lunch, havenīt decided on dinner yet, but I may try cottage cheese or chicken with some veggie. My two fruit servings today have been #1: 2 smallish pickly pear cactus fruits #2: one small pear. Earlier today I thought I was going to pass out while standing at the white board teaching my students. I tried an afternoon cup of coffee with stevia (I also had one at breakfast), but I am not sure that it made any difference. Something must be off. I appreciate any ideas on how I should adjust. Iīm not even exercising (relaxed walking for one to three hours) as I did during P2 without the slightest bit of discomfort.
