    Guess your body is fighting back... it reserves the right to protest, hopefully this will pass.
    Started Primal June 2012 at 148.5lbs, and 5' 1", reached goal weight in 5 months.
    Lowest weight 93lbs - too thin. Now stable at around 100lbs much better weight for me at my age.
    Primal, minus eggs, dairy and a myriad of other allergens.

      Awesome on the weight loss.

      Re the headache/lack of energy: How's your sodium? I don't know what it's like where you are, but here it's very, very hot and painfully humid. I've read (somewhere?) that iodine depletion can cause headaches and low energy. Maybe add a bit more iodized salt (not sea salt) to your food, or incorporate kelp/take kelp supplements? Just a thought.

        I live in Florida so it's really hot and humid. I'm going to go out on a limb and say it's near zero because I have only been eating meat, veggies, and fruit really. I will definitely try the kelp because I have a whole bag of it

          You might want to try magnesium or saline water solution as well from the pink salt. But I have to admit that for me the lethargy and dizziness was present for 6 week of very low carb - but I was going under 30 g.

          I am (big crossed fingers) happy to report the FODMAPS seems to be working decently for me. I have come off my Nexium and gone to the milder Zantac and I am so far feeling ok, PHEW! Hoping to eventually come off that. Things seem to be healing somewhat....... I will be sooo happy if this works.
          Fingers crossed! And, I have eliminated eggs for a couple of weeks in the end of the June W30, it is hard.

                I am jumping back in starting tonight - I finished about 30 days in May/June, then I have slowly fallen off the wagon. Too much chocolate and dried fruit and nuts. I feel out of control - all those things just have no brakes for me.
                I feel tired and bloated and sore.
                At the end of August I will be going to a family event, but I can make it clean until then.
                It already feels good to be back...!

                  Eh, just realized that the vanilla extract (1/4 tsp) in the blueberry scramble yesterday makes it not W30-compliant. So I guess I went off it yesterday. **shrug** Not sweating it.

                  Considering getting bulletproof coffee after W30: the coffee, MCT oil, butter, etc. This would be both to replace the first meal with something with calories (I've noticed that I tend not to eat breakfast and then have brunch around 11, but then I snack around 2 on fruit; looking to change this). So I'd do BPC in the morning, then have eggs/bacon/peppers for lunch and then dinner. Anyone here use (or have used) BPC? Worth it?

                    JK, I used bullet proof tea, and I used straight oil shots instead of the first meal. It is very individual. I find that it doesn't quel appetite for me - I am better off with straight black coffee & no food at all. Plus, fat makes LG approach invalid, since on lifting days fats are no good. I spent my entire bus ride this morning trying to figure out if it will be more advantageous to feed my muscles right after workout or wait till lunch for the standard 16 hrs fast. This kind of stuff drives me nuts.

                    I really want to be back on W30 more than cheese, since I seem to have sated my demand for it. I am wondering if I can freeze hard cheese?

                    EDIT: and my sleep improved so much I can't get enough of it. I have to drink 2 cups of coffee a day after 7 hrs sleep. I am having hard time to re-tooling my schedule to allow for 8-9 hrs sleep that I seem to need now. Holy cow. I used to be happy if I managed to stay 6 hrs in bed.

                      Wow so I am on day 4 and feel like a totally different person. I have so much energy today! I am hoping my body is done protesting! Headache is gone and everything!

                      I have also been making kale fruit smoothed, so that might be the secret too! thank you for the advice!

                        Thanks, Leida. That's what I did this morning: 1/2 cup black coffee before my 45-min brisk walk, then breakfast about 60-90 minutes later (3 eggs, gold-plated bacon, bell pepper, onion scrambled in ghee; 1/2 cup black coffee; water). And man: tons of energy. Cleaned three rooms in the house and swept before checking in for work!

                          Leida, I'm still recovering from injury (Dec 1) and surgery (Jan 2) - yes, 6.5 months later (out of an 8-month projected recovery period), there are times when I'm utterly wrecked. What I've started doing is this: I don't fight it anymore. I rest. A lot. I nap when I need to. I figure that my body is working hard to A) finish healing from the injury and surgery and B) heal nutritionally/hormonally from going primal (and now Whole30). So I'm just going with the flow, and doing my best to listen to my body's cues. If your body is telling you that you need more sleep, I encourage you to sleep!

                              beware of sulfites in spices ...I have some ground ginger in my closet that says:
                              ginger(sulfites)
                              yikes.
                              what a learning experience.

                                Yep, I would too, but I need to re-shuffle my schedule to do this, since everything hinges on my old sleeping allocation!

                                I think I will go back on W30 today and freeze the rest of the cheese. It is nice and everything, but W30 is better.
