Hello! Yesterday was my first day, it went really well and I felt very full but stayed on plan! However, I let myself get really hungry at bedtime (early dinner/not realizing I was so hungry around 10pm and just drinking an herbal tea) and I actually felt pretty awful all night and into the morning. As I ate my eggs in the morning I was feeling really nauseous and I have a pretty bad headache. Withdrawal from sugary carbs? I did have an E meal yesterday, but an apple was my main carb for that meal, an apple with a teensy bit of PB, grilled chicken over a salad with season salt and lime on top. Other than that I had S meals.
Sorry, I am committed to this and am not going to stop! I just wonder if this is normal or if anyone else has experienced this. SO grateful for a board where I can ask these questions! It helps me stay the course!!
Hi Katie! I hope you are feeling better. If you get hungry at night, feel free to have a fuel pull snack to satisfy you before bed. Are you still nursing? If so, you'll be more likely to need extra snacks. If you keep feeling nauseous and having headaches, you may want to include more E meals, maybe with some quinoa or oats, or Chana Dahl, since you have lots of that over in Dubai. You could also have some S Helpers, maybe 1/4 cup of grain with your S meal. Some people do experience these symptoms when beginning the plan, particularly with a lot of only S meals. But these symptoms go away as your body adjusts. Your commitment is great. After a while the plan will seem like second nature, and you'll really learn what works for you, and what you like the best too.

stacylynn: Got another one for you: Zone Bar with 210 cal; 7 g fat; 23 carbs (eek!); 3 g fiber; 15 gm sugar and 14 gm protein would fall under what category? Mess up? IMA goof-ball? Oops? Really...how do I categorize this poor choice?

missyhi: Looking for pumpkin spice fuel pull cookies, made them last week and now I can't find the recipe thanks!

steffanie3: Hmm, I haven't seen it missyhi, I will look a bit though because that sounds great Can you type it in your address bar on your computer? Sometimes when I start typing it will remember titles on sites I have been on and be enough to pull it up.

jinay: I've noticed some of the ladies have a small scale at the bottom of their posts tracking their progress. Where can I find this to add to my profile?
