Trying to feel better
I've dipped by toe in primal eating a few times before, so I am not new here. I realized over the past couple of weeks that eating the SAD has me feeling very poorly. I don't have a lot of energy, I have an acidic feeling in my stomach usually, and I didn't want to wait another day to start eating primally. I am very overweight, probably 165 pounds overweight, and I am a true sugar addict and binge eater.
Ay idea when I might start to feel better? Like less hungry, more energy, just better in general?
I think it varies, Heather. Often it might be a couple of weeks.

Don't forget the getting enough sleep in a properly darkened room, as well. If you need to use a PC after it gets dark, it would be worth installing f.lux:
