mapleleafsgirl Posted January 6, 2014 Share Posted January 6, 2014 Here we go. My mission is to post in this log EVERYDAY in order to keep myself accountable. I am half way through day one and feel awful. I'm not new to the 'carb' flu as I have dabbled with primal and paleo on and off for two years. I always end up falling off the wagon and then have a very hard time starting again. The set up of the Whole30 is different though and I really have my mind made up to make it through the 30 Days. The detox and carb flu symptoms is something I'm really anxious about. I think just by worrying about them I will be bringing them on. To me the worst symptoms are the brain fog/forgetfulness as the few times I tried paleo these symptoms were so extreme they were impacting my day to day life. Only day one and I am already feeling it. I forgot my own phone number today when speaking to a client and I had to actually look it up. But I must stay positive and look at the good side of things. The most I have made it on paleo/primal consecutively was about 10 to 14 days and though I did not feel 'amazing' at that point, the negative symptoms were starting to wear off so I need to focus on what I will feel like at day 30 and beyond.
