hCG Diet Headache

When most people go on the hCG diet plan they are the unfortunate recipients of a headache that can last for a day to several days.

The hCG diet headache itself is normal. Some people are more sensitive to the “fuel” change their body is going through, some people are not. Some people followed the hCG diet 2 day gorge by eating more carbs, and some followed a fat eating plan.

To understand why you have a headache on the hCG diet, or when you start any diet, you have to understand that the brain ‘prefers’ carbs for fuel. The brain can run on fat or protein, but carbohydrates are a simple, quick energy, and it doesn’t take a long time to convert to fuel. Protein takes longer, as does fat. When you cut carbs out, your body must adjust.

Without even knowing it you are getting simple carbs, ie. simple sugars, daily, in the form of wheat, fructose, corn syrup, honey, and alcohol to name a few ‘bad carbs.’ Just about every prepackaged, manmade, pre-prepared food contains simple sugars and refined foods that your body becomes accustomed to eating.

The dramatic reduction of these foods often sends the body into withdrawals and thus, the dreaded hCG diet headaches. The more ‘bad carbs’ you have in your system and eat prior to hCG Diet Day, the more severe the headache.

If you have been a carb addict for sometime, or just eat a lot of pre-made prepackaged foods, and suffer from bloating, gas, food cravings, or general fatigue prior to the hCG diet, you may want to read about the signs and symptoms of Candida on this site. Or follow what Kevin Trudeau suggests in The Weight Loss Cure.

You may want to think of the headache as your body detoxing from the bad fuel you have been feeding it. You may also experience fatigue, extreme hunger and food cravings, irritability, bloating, gas, muscle soreness, headache, and nausea.

These are short-term effects and will pass in a day or two.

There are a few things you can do to avoid, reduce or ease the hCG diet headache and other withdrawal symptoms.

• hCG Diet 2 Day Gorge post suggests you eat a more fatty diet during the 2 day gorge. That will give your body time to ease into the reduction of ‘bad carbs’, and time for your body to make the switch from carb burning to fat burning faster.

• Take L-Glutamine to curb carbohydrate cravings.

• Potassium is good for muscle soreness as is vitamin E.

• Drink lots of water.

• Take your usual headache solution.

• You may want to increase your protein, if hunger is persistent and overpowering, and then ease yourself into 200 grams a day.

I can’t express enough the importance of FIBER. Psyillum husks or Miracle Noodles. Fiber is filing, plus it eases digestion and constipation. Psychologically you will find greater enjoyment from eating Miracle Noodles.

I am with-in the last 3 or 4 days of being off the injections. This is my 3rd series and I have stalled thru-out the whole 27 days of injections. I did an apple day on Tuesday, went down .8 #'s Thursday I went up .8 #s Finally went to the hot tub and did some water erobics in the pool for 1/2 hour late yesterday. Have encreased water in take and did a steak day yesterday. Weighed this morning and I only went down .2 #'s. This has been very slow this time around. Total weight loss is only 10 #'s Also, I have a headache, nothing will take it away. I am on an antibotic for strep right now, 3rd day, would that make a difference? I finally went and ate two hard boiled eggs about an hour ago thinking I might need more protien because I feel hungry. Have drank 50 to 60 oz of water a day thinking i was dehydrated. I only have 5 more pounds left to reach my goal this time. Just discouraged!! Any advise from anyone?? I am 5 ft, with 120 as of this morning, which was the weight I was after the 2nd round I finished up. I have a very small frame and still have some belly fat that is stubborn. Any advise would be helpful. KD
@Kd, Are you at or near and old weight? How long have you waited between rounds? How much weight do you have to lose?
My head hurt some at the begining but I am finding my body aches every day and that is not going away! I am doing everything to the letter!
@Whendi, You may need some Potassium. Dr. Simeons talks about this in the manuscript. Body Aches.
