Thread: Detox symptoms?

  1. #1

    Detox symptoms?

    Curious to know if I am experiencing ďdetoxĒ like symptoms early on in this diet. My eating habits had gotten pretty bad, high on sugar, fat, processed foods etc. Iím on VLCD day 2 and just feeling bouts of fatigue, irritability, fogginess, etc. It feels like detox to me. Iíve done this diet before and I remember feeling this way the first week and then felt fine in the weeks after. I donít think itís a dose issue because like I said I typically go through this the first week and after I start feeling good and energetic. The symptoms arenít constant they just come and go. Can anyone relate?

    Yes, likely detox, considering your food history. It can last several days. You can help speed it up by keeping up with your water and doing things that open your detox channels and support your liver....such as extra vitamin C, epsom salts or detox baths, milk thistle, and things that move the lymph system--skin brushing, rebounding, walking.

    Lizard, Leez is best coach/moderator you could ask for, I always appreciate her feedback. Just want to say I definitely felt the same "detox" symptoms when I started back on hcg at the beginning of January. I had been eating so badly, going off sugar was difficult. But after a week, I started feeling better. Hang in there, and good luck with your round!

    Dubbles is right, its the sugar withdrawal that seems to cause the most detox misery.

    Abruptly stopping the chemical cocktails added to processed foods can wreak some havoc too. Since those slowly build up in our systems, we don't notice the way they have changed things in our bodies. You should be able to notice a whole lot of good changes after P2, where you've eliminated them for a good length of time. Your taste sensation will be different, like you will notice the natural sweetness in vegetables, and cravings will have calmed down. You will actually be able to tune in to real hunger and satsifaction signals that these chemicals have altered or masked.

    Thank you! It was definitely detox. Day 2 and 3 were so rough. I donít remember feeling that way last time, but last time my eating habits werenít as bad when I started. Today I feel great, mustíve pulled through. Good energy, no cravings, feeling much clearer. I did start taking magnesium. Thanks again

    Glad you are feeling better. You might want to just continue with the magnesium. It can ward of the ever so common constipation problem that can happen in P2.

    So I am taking magnesium regularly now. Overall I feel much much better. But havenít notice a change in my BM. I donít feel ďconstipatedĒ per se, but I havenít gone in a few days. I am taking 250mg magnesium per the bottles indication. Should I increase my dosage? Also the bottle expired in 2020 (it was an old bottle I found in my cabinet). Should I buy a new bottle? I usually find expired vitamins/ medication to still work. Thoughts?

    I totally agree with you. Dry supplements can still be effective years past the date. As long as they have been stored properly and haven't changed color it is likely they are fine.

    250 mg is a low dose, so unless you were particularly sensitive to magnesium, it wouldn't help much.

    They way you find the amount that is right for your body is to increase by one capsule each day until you get to bowel tolerance. That means until you start to have loose stools. Then back off one and that is your dose.

    It may take a while to get there since your bottle has a low dosage, or you could double up for each increase. Magnesium is very safe and you can take quite a bit of it without a problem. Up to 2000mg/day is considered safe. I've had to go as high as 1600mg. Most people will find relief at less than that. My maintenance dose now is 400-500mg.

    Mine too, and some days I take 2 for 1000 mg

    Forgot to mention that its best to take your whole dose all at once. I find the best time is at night. It gives it all night to do its thing, and magnesiums tissue relaxing effects can help you sleep better. (Disrupted sleep is another common issue during P2)

    As for the form of magnesium, the poorest absorbed forms are the best for this purpose, such as magnesium citrate or magnesium oxide. Its nice that they are also the cheapest forms. The pricier combos like magnesium glyconate or malate don't work as well. In fact people take those forms to avoid laxative effects.
