    You're feeling like shit cause you cut out carbs. Just gorge on sugar for a few days and watch your energy return. Don't take it slow like some recommend, it's only gonna lead to a slow recovery.

    Even if you gain a pound or two I would imagine just getting back to normal takes priority.

I've added them in slowly to ensure I don't suffer any ill affects but all I want is for my energy to revive.
      I'm implying that you have always had issue with these foods and not known it until now. That is the definition of elimination diet. You're only noticing how sensitive you are because you took the time to eliminate. You actually do not want to adapt back to eating something that is killing you. You want to learn from your response that there is healing to be done before such items may be able to added back in safely.

          I don't even know what jack daniels is. All I'm saying is getting out of this misery takes priority and she can focus on cleaning up her diet afterwards. And the low-carb stunt likely did way more damage than overfeeding on carbs for a week will.

            No, I listed exactly what I typically eat. What am I being dishonest about?

              Ah, well since you don't know what JD is I was stating that your advice will result in negative health more times than not.

                You de-emphasized omelette, so LC probably assumed it was LF/egg white variation, is all.

                Cindy01, do not worry, just try to re-introduce various starches slowly and give your body plenty of rest. VLC is not something that works for absolutely everyone every time.

                  Thank you, I appreciate your compassion. The thing is I was only 'VLC' for two weeks and shifted towards low carb (50-150g) for 3-4 weeks.

                  Maybe the sugar refeed protocol sounds most appropriate to readjust and start over.

                    Depending on your activity level, 50-150 g carbs may perfectly be VLC for you. There is also a theory on the 'zone of misery' which stipulates that you are not low carb enough, your body keeps re-adjusting between the fat and carb burning, leaving you in the rough sea of misery while the keto-nirvana is out of reach. I thought that happened to me the first time (since I had relatively high protein and ate nuts/dairy), so I spent 6 weeks on doing strict VLC with high animal fat and even low protein, and the energy improved some, but never came in droves, as it supposed to when you are ketonic. I just walked under water entire time. But in my case, the moment I bit into that apple, life regained color.

                    I have not used refined sugar, and kindda afraid of it, seeing the diabetes runs in the family. I used honey for serotonine management (1 tbsp ~ 2 pm and before bed). Which worked great for my mood and energy, but trashed my skin.

                      I never really felt adapted to fat, my body needs the glucose. I remember having a banana after 4 weeks strict VLC and felt no different. What's your carb intake now? Do you incorporate starches? I can't help but feel a little envious of those LC folk who can rely on a potato once in a while for a boost
