That's my question for the week. Am I allergic to bacon or is the Atkins diet dangerous for me?
Started Atkins on Tuesday. Thursday I had a massive headache. Friday I woke up nauseous, having hot flashes and sweating. I couldn't eat because I had to take a blood test. I was some better by the time I got to the doctor. But I spent the day on a hilly ride. Felt sick, felt fine. Had a lot of ascent dizziness (when you stand up and get dizzy).
Yesterday was better. I felt ill but not too bad.
Then this morning about 5 I woke up with severe stomach cramps, nauseous, weak. I didn't make it back to bed once after I got to the bathroom. I was just too weak. That kept up off and on until 8:30. Then I went to sleep. Had nightmares over and over again. Finally got up at 11:30. Ate some pot roast. (This is a meat and lettuce thing for the first two weeks.)
I still feel weak. My husband says if I am sick I have to go off Atkins. But I don't think I am sick. I think it is either that my body really doesn't like Atkins or I am allergic to bacon.
I had bacon for the first time in over a year and a half and then I got sick. I had bacon last night and then I got sick. I am wondering if there is a connection.
So I guess I am going to have to avoid bacon and see if I get better or if I stay sick.
