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.

mbernadette: I have started to slide backwards after losing 63 lbs. Now I must get back to business. I may require a vavle replacement surgery and also two new knees. I need to be as healthy as possible for these.

htebe: What does JUDD stand for; it was mentioned to a lady who was wondering why she wasn't losing?

steffanie3: JUDDD has a small mention towards the end of the first book, I think it is a mixing of FP and regular meals by days, but honestly don't recall for sure. It is mentioned for menopausal, stubborn loss mamas.

singtoangels: So I was just wondering, should I really read up on THM and wait until at least after Thanksgiving or should I try to dive into it now? Those who have stuck with it what do you do?

htebe: steffanie3 - THAT WOULD BE ME - stubborn, slow losing menopausal

ww: I posted but wanted to check with y'all before I throw it out... Anyone else make the secret silk pie yet? Mines so beautiful but tastes like soap. Is it the okra or gelatin?

hsmomof3: Not sure how this page works or where to post my question. I am allergic to oats (I can't have the oat fiber). What would be a suitable substitute? Thank you

Blessed Beyond Measure: I'm not sure hsmomof3, but you could try asking on the S and E plan general discussion board. More people will read there than down in this shoutbox.

julie63131: Hello From St.Louis I am just getting started and still waiting on the books but I am excited to get started

queen: hi julie, you can get started now by finding some menus on Pinterest and practicing the fuel separation. Some people lose just by doing that and drinking more water.
