    Primal brain fog.

    To be honest, paleo wasn't a great jump for me. Basically just meant cutting the bread and grains and getting more fruit and nuts. It's coming up on a week now and I just don't seem to be 100% 'with it', kind of like I haven't had enough sleep. I also dumped the coffee about 4 days ago, not quitting for good, just seeing if I can.

    Has anybody else found this? if so does it clear up in time once your body adjusts?

    cheers

    You don't need to ditch coffee. If you were drinking a lot, just start cutting back.

    Are you getting enough sleep? Good sleep? You may need more right now. Read Mark's postings on sleep.

    To rephrase your post for you "I just ditched carbs and caffeine - I'm almost a whole week in - anyone know why I might be tired?" You might try adjusting one variable at a time.

    Also, some here will reel in horror hearing you traded grains for fruit and nuts. FWIW, etc.

    I'm in the third day w/ no grains. I'm having major shakes and some light-headedness, and everybody who responded to my post said its pretty normal. Hang in there, you aren't alone!
