Day 3 of the V-Diet


#1

So… is it normal to have some fuzzy-headedness and nausea at first? Is this an adjustment period? I want this so badly to work!!

Working on getting past missing chewing my food… :slight_smile:


#2

YES - I felt extremely fuzzy headed and nauseous for the first 4 days, but it passed after that.

Sometimes it’s due to the HOT-ROX, so maybe try backing down to taking 1 pill 2x per day until your system adjusts. Also, try drinking half a shake, then taking the HOT-ROX, then drinking the other half. That seemed to help me.


#3

Make sure you are keeping your carbs at the levels prescribed. That fuzziness is sometimes associated with the beginning stages of ketosis, which you do not want to be in.


#4

First, are you doing the diet as prescribed? Same supplements, etc.

Second, some people are sensitive to HOT-ROX and should take that supplement with a shake, not before on an empty stomach.


#5

Yes, I bought everything as prescribed- I wouldn’t trust myself to come up with such a complex diet! :slight_smile: I think you’re right- it might be the HOT-ROX.

Day 4 and I am starting to feel better, but have not been taking the HOT-ROX for the past two days. Does that mean that I shouldn’t take it at all, or that there is an adjustment period with it and I just need to push through?

Christie, I think your advice about 1/2 shake before and after might just work for me. THANKS!

THANKS again for all of your advice - you have all been very helpful! Great to have your support!


#6

I have the same problem… i ran a redlight yesterday, not on purpose, knew it was red. Didn’t even register with me that i should be stopping lol. thankfully nothing bad happened. kinda scared me so im taking only one HOT-ROX twice a day. Good luck with your diet


#7

Good to know that I’m not alone! So it’s working fine for you taking one HOT-ROX 2x day?

Thanks for your support, too!


#8

I also have problems with HOT-ROX, so I am talking only two a day. It works very well even at that dosage. But I think that you might want to take look at Carbolin 19 which is also very effective and it does not stimulate as much (Chris also suggested to replace HOT-ROX with Carbolin 19 if you have problems with stimulants)


#9

Same for me I am only taking 2 a day. This is day 4 & I took 1 as soon as I got up this am & hopped on the exercise bike for 35 min of NEPA. I can still feel a little buzz but not as bad as before. I’m going to try & increase the first dose to 2 with half a shake & see how it works


#10

Yeah, that suggestion from Christie seems to be helping - 1/2 shake before and 1/2 after was easier to handle. But I am going to look into that Carbolin 19 stuff, too.

Diverdog, let me know how the increase works for you! This is now day 5, and I think I’m finally in the groove.


#11

Hey Mo - seems like day 5 is about when I finally felt “in the groove” as well :wink: Then it was honestly pretty much smooth sailing until the last 2-3 days. Glad the suggestion about taking mid-shake helped you out :slight_smile:


#12

Oh, yes, that mid-shake thing worked perfectly! I had no problems after that. THANKS again! I will try to go up to 2 twice a day in a few days.

And yeah, I am pretty much in a good rhythm now!

I have to say, though, it was a little tricky walking through the mall with my daughter… that food smelled soooo good… but I held strong. Most of that stuff doesn’t appeal to me anyway… although I do like the occasional soft pretzel…

Looking forward to my first ‘real’ meal in a week tomorrow! It’ll be salmon, salad and brown rice, most likely! Maybe some blueberries for dessert!
