    Standard "low-carb flu." Your body needs time to adjust to fat-burning instead of sugar-burning for energy. It'll last a few days to 2 weeks in most cases. A much smaller percentage of people experience it for up to a couple months. Hang in there -- it's worth it.

    A lot of people experience flu-like symptoms when they start on a Paleo or Primal way of eating. Yes, it will lessen/go away with time as your body gets used to eating healthy, real foods and heals from all the years of rubbish eating.

    yes it will. The more dilligent and strict you are the faster it will pass. Sleep lots, drink lots of water. eat bacon. It's worth it.

    Don't worry, it definately goes away and you feel SO much better than before when it does! It's just your body adjusting to the change of diet, it'll function better soon =]
