    Post Feeling Dizzy & Light headed

    hello,

    i'm p2 / just finished day 19 and loving my results (16.8 lbs lost), but i've noticed i'm feeling dizzy / light headed quite a bit. i'm sticking to protocol, chose not to eat melba toast or grissini and drinking 99 oz of unsweetened koolaid (w/out maltodextrin & sweetened with stevia) daily. i'm also supplimenting with raw apple cider tablets and trace minerals.

    i feel extremely fortunate in that i'm not feeling hungry, but would love to know why i'm feeling dizzy.

    one happy "loser,"

    I don't have any explanation but I had that happen to me on P2 a couple times, as well as nausea and being unable to even eat my calories a time or 2. So I'd be interested in knowing what causes this too.

    I don't know either. But I experience this too. Especially if I stand up too fast. I almost passed out after I got up to answer the doorbell yesterday. I think you just have to be careful and make sure you continue to drink your water and eat all your alloted food, minus the grissini if you chose to omit that.

    I have this too, but usually only when I stand up too quick. It sounds like we have temporary low blood pressure:

    Why Do I Get Dizzy Sometimes When I Stand Up?
    When standing quickly, it may take a second or two for the body to make adjustments to constrict blood vessels and push blood up to the brain. If there is a delay, then this time of relative low blood pressure may cause symptoms. It can be exacerbated or seen more often in women who are pregnant, people with diabetes, those who become dehydrated, or are taking high blood pressure medications.
    Symptoms include of dizziness upon standing (orthostatic hypotension) include:
    lightheadedness,
    confusion,
    nausea, and
    fainting or passing out.
    There may also be weakness, blurred vision, and shaking or tremulousness.
    These symptoms may resolve quickly as the body slowly adjusts to the standing position, but in some cases the person has to sit or lie down quickly to prevent passing out or falling.

    I had this dizzy when standing or bending over all throughout P2, especially towards the end. I think we're just not getting enough food honestly.

    Absolutely this. The body isn't really designed for 500 calories. I think it is just something you have to accept when doing this type of diet. It is temporary and should disappear completely once you are on P3 and P4. Just try to remember to stand up slower. (I know that isn't easy to remember.)
    I gained a bunch of weight following several bouts with depression. I am working on getting myself back.

    if it's postural hypotension (feeling dizzy when you stand up), your body should adjust to this- so it's unusual for BP problems to show up toward the end of the round. if they do, try eating more salt. i'd also recommend a magnesium/potassium supplement. if it's low blood sugar, try eating a little bit more protein, or spreading your food out so you're eating more frequently. some of you also might be drinking too much. 70-80 oz of water is plenty for most people.

    mzb- you must not be a water drinker. Unfortunately, your body does not absorb water nearly as well when it is mixed with something else. i'd drink at least half your fluid as plain water.

    wow, mgsondance...you are G-double O-D, good! ; )

    i actually am diabetic and haven't seen such stable sugars in quite some time. *clapping hands in delight* i have chosen to eat throughout the day and tend to save my fruit until the end of the evening. at first, i wanted to attribute the dizziness to my diabetes, but my sugars are very stable. yes, i'm not a big water fan, SOOOOOOooooooo i'm utilizing koolaid in order to get my water intake. otherwise, i'd be setting myself up for failure without it. is it possible that 99 oz is simply too much?

    thanks SOOOOOoooooooo much for taking the time to respond,

    janie

    how are your sugars when you're eating the fruit by itself? i'm thinking it might be better to have it with your other food? but i'm no diabetic expert!

    i'd cut your water back to 70 oz, take a mag/pot supplement, and dump the koolaid.... Even that much stevia is not good for you. It's difficult for me to drink enough water too, but try drinking it at room temperature- it's much easier to chug a glass of it at a time if it's not cold. (it's absorbed better, too)

    ugh, i wasn't clear on the fruit...i save one of my allotted fruit until the end of the evening since i've had low blood sugar twice in the middle of the night. it seems to sustain me well as my blood sugars are typically in the low 100's first thing in the morning.

    i did read up on the pot/mag benefits and think it will help tremedously! (thanks for the suggestion!) i'm also going to take your advice and dump the koolaid and stick with room temp water instead. 70 oz shouldn't be too bad, right? *covering eyes*

    thanks again for your help, it's truly appreciated!!

    What about Iron and Vitamin in take? I read someone else had the same thing happen and her doctor had said she was lacking which made her feel that way.
