    Felt great -- now what?

    Shop Now
    I'm almost 2 mos into Primal. I felt really good after the first week, and I've lost a total of 10 lbs in fits and starts. This week I've noticed my my appetite is down, which isn't surprising judging from others' experience. That's fine, but I also keep getting headaches in the afternoon. Twice this week I skipped my workout to lie down after work. Ugh! I want the Primal energy everyone keeps gushing about. What could it be -- not enough water? Not enough "good" carbs, like sweet potatoes? Not enough food in general (although I'm trying not to eat when not hungry)? Just my body adjusting? I don't want to be an impatient newbie, but still... I wasn't expecting these headaches.

    Typical workday meals (until this week, when I've been eating less than this):

    Breakfast: Coffee with cream + smoothie (coconut milk and frozen berries and/ or mango)
    Lunch: Bacon and scrambled eggs (I can go home for lunch!), sometimes with diced tomato and/ or avocado
    Dinner: Some kind of meat/ vegetable combo (taco salad, stir fry, steak and salad, etc)
    Occasional: Almonds, good quality dark chocolate, small piece of cheddar (experimenting with raw cheese), Kind bars.

    Sorry you having this experience, congrats on your weight loss. Maybe it is withdrawal from something. Have you increased or decreased your coffee? Or alcohol? Does a drink of water fix it? Your primal meals look good, keep up the great work.
