    Is this normal?

    Primal Fuel
    Hi there!

    I've pretty much started this in an extreme way because I was completely frustrated two days ago with myself. So I created an account and pretty much ate only chicken, eggs and bacon for the last 48 hours. Today I allowed myself two cups of milk ( I usually drink a lot of milk) & tomorrow I will also include some tomatos and cucumber ( but no more milk) . Although, and this is my actual question, I slept a lot I felt sort of tired and weak during the last 48 hours. should I be concerned?? Or is this feeling normal and will go away in a few days?

    I'm excited to hear what u think about it!

    I think most people go through a "low-carb flu" when they first start; it can last for a couple days up to a couple weeks. So don't give up! Good luck

    I felt pretty tired and unenergized for a couple weeks when I got started. Hang in there! It's worth it!

    Variety is actually a good thing. When you're only eating 3 foods, you're missing out on a lot of micronutrients. Are you at least cooking this stuff in coconut oil or butter and taking a multivitamin?

    You probably should not change your diet in response to feelings of guilt.
    You lousy kids! Get off my savannah!

    Why so extreme? Where are the veg? Eat a good variety of whole real foods and chill.
    Eating primal is not a diet, it is a way of life.

    And if it comes right down to it and you can't do the low carb thing then just remember: the important thing is eating real food. As log as what you're eating is meat, vegetables and fruit you should be fine (although too much fruit and you'll probably gain weight if you're a thing like me).
    In all of the universe there is only one person with your exact charateristics. Just like there is only one person with everybody else's characteristics. Effectively, your uniqueness makes you pretty average.

    From you jumping into Primal like this, I gave a feeling this might just be a fad for you. Please prove me wrong, and for heaven's sake, eat sone vegetables. There's more to this than just eating protein.
