I just started this diet last week. First off, I noticed that the SW made me hungry after half an hour. (I didn't eat anything, but my stomach was rumbling, and I made sure I drank it over 30-45 minutes.) The second thing was I took 1 Tbl. of oil, by itself, which I almost gagged on, it was that nasty, and I got a headache that 4 ibuprofen couldn't touch. The next day I decided to combine the SW with the oil, which was easier to swallow, texture-wise, didn't make me hungry half an hour later, but still gave me a headache. In case you're wondering, I haven't had a headache in a few months, and this was the only thing I changed in my lifestyle.
BTW, I'm using expressed walnut oil because of the lack of flavor. I find that I have to wipe my lips after every sip because the oiliness just makes me gag. Is this a normal reaction for a newbie?
I am wondering if this has happened to anyone else. I realize this might have been posted already, but I did a search and couldn't find anything similar.
