Hello - I'm on Day 25 and about once a week I'm getting headaches that last a day or two.  Could this still be sugar withdrawal?  I'm drinking tea so I don't think it's caffeine.  Has anyone else had sugar withdrawal last this long?

Thanks for any help

I've had white potatoes twice since starting.  Regarding fat intake; I use ghee (1 tsp?) several times a week when making eggs, almond butter the other mornings with fruit.  I've used coconut oil a few times, but am mostly using olive oil when cooking.  

Occasionally, I'll have a spoon of almond butter at night

My fat query was more 'are you adding fat to every meal over and above what you're using to cook with?' - how would you answer that?

No pattern with the potatoes & the headaches...

Are you salting your food? Drinking a half an ounce of water per pound of body weight daily?

Yep, you need to be aiming for a half an ounce per pound of body weight daily AND adding fat to EVERY meal - as well as salting your food - a lack of any or all of the aforementioned will contribute to headaches.

Besides cooking fat, what do you mean by adding fat to every meal?  Thank you very much for your help.

 

So you could add things like mayo or guacamole to your plate. Chop some avocado into your salads, drizzle your veg in clarified butter/ghee, add a jar of chopped olives into a frittata or omelette.... Add dressings to salads, coconut milk to curries..... eat fatty cuts of meat such as chicken wings with the skins on, ribs or brisket...

The brain is made up of 60% fat so it stands to reason that it needs fat to be healthy.
