    Good morning! The brain that used to live in my head is still missing. It's comforting knowing I'm not the only one. Didn't even think of blood sugar levels. Oh ... ya ... I forgot ... I'm NOT thinking. I haven't been faint, or light headed at all. Physically I'm fine. What's so confusing about this is I didn't feel this at all in my first round. I'm losing well, but this second round suck! it's sooooo much harder. I will stick to it ... can't be fat & dumb. I don't have any commitments, or obligations this week sooo I think I'll just hang out at home. My husband flies home Thursday, he's gonna have a good laugh at this.

This is all released into our bloodstream as fuel. Also are we used to processed foods and suffer a type of withdrawl when we switch to pure foods? Is it our bodies and brain adjusting to not having the quick supply of energy that simple carbs supply? How do our neurons respond to that? It is interesting to ponder these questions. Anyway at least in my experience things get better and you can concentrate more the farther along you get on the VLCD.

    The brain needs a minimum amount of carbs to operate at peak function. With as little carbs as your consume on this diet, it stands to reason it will have some impact on brain function. If it becomes intrusive I would modify the protocol to include more fruit, especially if you are driving or have an active day. That's just me. I know it might stall or slow weight loss but I won't risk impaired judgment while driving my kids around.

    I think we get all the carbs we need on this diet. The brain also needs a minimum amount of fat to operate optimally. This diet is extremely low fat to no fat. I am not recommending this to anyone because it is off protocol, but I read in a thread recently where a woman started adding a fish oil supplement and her brain fog immediately cleared and her mood improved.

    If food is not what you need, what is it you really want?

    That is good to know, Lisa. While the protocol may be important for our weight loss success, I think people who are experiencing side effects such as faintness, dizziness, or brain fog need to address that FIRST. Our weight loss goals are important but side effects like that can be a danger to yourself and others, especially if you are driving. (And I do hope no one is getting behind the wheel if they have those symptoms.)

    Two days ago I added a tsp of good coconut oil to see if it'd work. Nothing happened. So I added a tbsp yesterday and the fog cleared. Today I'm down a full pound. But like you said, it's off protocol.
    I started with homeopathic drops, switched to Rx sublingual, then ended with homeopathic pellets. If I had to do it over again I'd go with pellets. And I'd cycle.
