Headache?

I've been really good food wise today, no naughty treats. I've had my usual amount of caffeine and plenty of water. I do however have a really annoying headache. Did anyone find this when they started cutting the sugar? Or have any other changes that could be down to eating better?

Yes when I first cut out sugar and refined carbohydrates I had quite a few unpleasant headaches and caved in a couple of times. I'm obviously not a doctor but it may just be your body adjusting :) maybe a piece of fruit would help?

I think quite a few of us noticed this, it does go after a few days 😀

its actually quite scary to think that I'm usually so reliant on refined sugar. 😲

I never had any headaches but I know some members have and they say drinking more water seem to help them.

I cut sugar out for a couple of weeks last year and got some stonking headaches so it could be that!

Yes, it is horrible but it goes and you'll feel so much better afterwards :)

I suppose its like going on a detox diet or not having caffeine it causes headaches for a few days- hope it settles soon

Well done on giving up the sugar but as you've found out, it can have temporary side effects. Eating a banana used to help me. Perhaps have a look at the "I quit sugar" site.

I always say I can tell when I'm "back on track" when I get that headache! I find it goes but as soon as I have an 'off day' I get it again when I go back to being on it.

this is my worry. I'm not so good at being good if you know what I mean! In a way I quite like the headache as it means I defo am being good!
