I am on day 8 WOOOOO HOOOO! Feeling better in many aspects but when will I be able to eat normal again?
I can't get alot of food down and I get really run down. (combination of getting clean and not eating right probably)
I am taking vitamins, drinking ensure and carnation breakfast drinks to get some nutrition. Is this a normal part of WD?
Way to go on 8 days, that is great. i don't know that much about pill w/d's or when you will get your appetite back but when i first got clean i did not want to eat at first, but after a week or so all i did was eat. it was like i got my appetite back overnight and it's still there. it should come back soon, this is normal for many.
Yeah everyones different but, everyone seems to have a major loss of appetite. On day 7 I was forcing a little bit of toast, and bland foods down, but everything tasted horrible for about 2 weeks. I lost 15lbs but, it caused me to go to ER b/c my potasssium levels were very low. So they gave me a magnesium IV and a 10 day supply of potassium pills. After that I was eating anything and everything in site....lol. My stomach was overloaded, I ate like that for a few weeks and gain all my weight I lost and more. I am back to eating normally now and lost 10lbs. I had a lot of water weight for some reason...I was really bloated. I am now taking a woman's mega multi-vitamin and excercising more. I was exusted and lethargic for a long time. Good thing it will all pass! Keep in your mind that this is temporary! I am on day 46 and feeling so much better! Your doing awesome!
normal i think...i had a loss of apetite as well...push ur fluidstho as it is most important..u r making good choices with the ensure and such...are u taking the supps? exercise helps fatigue more than anything for me..keep posting
