Day 52 with a doozer of a headache

Into day 2 of my all fruit and veggie diet, with a nasty headache. Had coffee this AM, and after 1/2 a cup threw it out...will be off that too and replacing it with green tea.
I need protein, had a shake this AM and so as of tonight I'll be adding protein back into my plan, and will only consume berries and 1 banana per day for some carb substance.
My workouts will be the same but less intense as my energy level will more than likely wain as I get further into this, but will keep the intensity as high as I possibly can.
Was sent this link by a friend - interesting read http://www.fourhourworkweek.com/blog/ apparently part of this was pulled from http://www.bodybuildingdungeon.com/forums/nutrition/2156-cdk-cyclical.html the CDK - Cyclical Ketogenic Diet
Then found this site and loved the quote below from one of the posts - check it out
SHOW YOUR BODY WHO'S BOSS"The human body has limitations," Karnazes says. "The human spirit is boundless." Your mind, in other words, is your most important muscle from http://www.wired.com/wired/archive/15.01/ultraman.html

CKD is an awesome way to go. I've done it for a few months at a time. I just find that after a bit my muscles need a little bit of carbs to get growing.

Diane, first happy belated birthday to you!

About the all raw, I too had headaches but they will pass. I didn't consume any protein (other than what's naturally in vegetables) over the course of 5 days. Sometimes I wish I had kept it going since adding other foods now to my diet is making me not feel so great.

Hey Diane, hope you are feeling better. I found that if I eat only fruit, I have headaches too. If I add in green veggies (as in smoothies), it revves up my energy and I feel so much better. Can´t see why that would make a difference, but it did to me. Take care.
