Often, the first two days go without much of a hitch. If this is your first time on a food challenge you can expect to feel a little junky today. if you are switching off a processed foods diet day three is when your glucose stores (read:SUGAR) have been noticeably depleted. Symptoms may include low energy, head aches, irritability or sugar cravings. Have no fear and stick the course! You should be feeling better and full of steady, AWESOME energy in a day or two. Don’t give into the sugar demons or we’ll just continue feeling bad.
