Thread: Terrible Headaches in P3

    Terrible Headaches in P3

    Hopefully someone can give me some insight. I'm on Day 9 of P3, and my weight is stabilizing great which I'm happy about. However, I'm getting terrible headaches and not sure why. I never had a headache during 42 days of P2. Has anyone experienced this in P3? Did you find the cause? I thought it might be the cheese or almonds that I added small amounts of. However so far today I've not had dairy or almonds and still have an aweful headache? Any suggestions? Thanks.

    I haven 't done a P3 on this program yet, but in general I always get TERRIBLE headaches when on any low carb diet for a significant length of time. If you are a slow oxidizing metabolic type, then your body really needs some kind of carbohydrate to get energy for your brain. If I were you, I'd increase your allowable carbohydrates like fruit and see if you feel any better. For me, headaches are almost always caused by not enough fuel for my brain.

    I'm on P3 and Im stabilizing well. I have also experienced several headaches, this is usually when my water intake is low for the day. Try drinking more water, it helped me.
