Hi

I just started SBD today I have felt good most of the day until a few hours ago when I started to get a headache and weak. From what I have read this is normal, right??

Also, I don't feel like I have had enough calories, since most everything that is diet approved

Headaches are normal...drink lots of water, take it easy, etc. Usually it's aboaut day 2 or 3 when headaches kick in; I don't think the first day is as common. You shouldn't really feel "weak", though. Make sure you are eating enough. Maybe have some protein to help get your strength back.

Hi & welcome! A spoon of natural peanut butter, cheese or handful of nuts can give you a burst of energy and an easy way to be sure you're having enough calories. If you would like to post what you're eating in the iJournal section below we would be happy to keep an eye out for you.
Hope your headache is better today and please keep us posted on how you're feeling.
