One word ....

....headaches.
Was I really so toxic? When I started the extreme Phase One of this diet I didn't think it would make me feel so bad but oh my goodness. One afternoon I even had to go to bed.
I want to know what causes the headaches. A quick search on the internet tells me that either my body is 'getting used to the dramatic reduction in poisons', that the toxins circulate the body on their way out and affect certain areas or that it's all to do with coffee and how it blocks receptors in the brain that can dilate blood vessels causing headaches.
More worryingly I have just found an article on a woman who suffered brain damage following a detox.
That is why you shouldn't do too much research on the internet.

Oh no....I do worry that I drink too much coffee. I'm just afraid of the headaches I get when I try to stop. It's a no win. Good luck :)

I have a feeling that it was sugar and that was why it was so bad - not sure if that helps?! But I am quite pleased not to be having coffee although I do miss that morning cup of tea ...
