So I am new here on this forum. This is day 4 of my 5bd. I really have not been very hungry
( thankfully) but yesterday and especially this morning, I am noticing that I am very dizzy. Is this normal?

I have been faithful to eating five bites at a time but I am eating adding in breakfast. I will be cutting out breakfast but right now I feel I need it. I am also drinking about 60 oz of water per day. so is there anything I can do or change to get rid of the dizziness?

i also get a little dizzy sometimes when my blood pressure is low. It only happens when i get up from a sitting or laying down position too quickly. its called positional orthostatic hypotension, and its very common. There is no treatment that i know of and there are no problems associated with it health wise, so i wouldnt be too concerned over it. To help with the symptoms make sure that ur getting enough salt in ur diet. When ur blood volume is at a good level, ur blood pressure will increase to normal making the positional hypotension less obvious. ur vessels have less constriction to do to overcome gravity.

hope that helped you out

That happened to me at first, so I went to having 5 bites of breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I still lost the same amount per day as I was before. I also cut working out for the first few weeks. Once I felt that my body was used to 5 bite, I started working out again. As Tea mentioned, it will prob go away on its own ( she definitely had a well researched answer!), I think taking time off exercize and 5 bites for breakfast make you feel a bit better in the beginning. So, IMHO, you can eat breakfast and it will still work. I hope this helps Very Happy

Thanks. I have a lot of weight to lose. I have not done any excecising yet, just because when I do it makes me hungry. For me this is a drastic cut in calories so it might just be my body adjusting. I am happy with results though so far. I didnt check my weight when I started but I checked yesterday and between yesterday and today I lost 1.4 lbs. I have tried evey diet, diet pill nothing has ever got me to lose more than 15 lbs before it just stops, no matter how much excercising, so this 5bd is my last hope. And I am greatful for this forum and to have support Smile

Thanks. Well I must say that the dizzines has gone away. In the last 6 days I have lost 6 lbs! yay!
I am finding though that when I started this diet I was eating about 800 calories a day and in the last 2 days I am struggling to eat 500. Is this normal that your apetite shrinks this much? Cuz if it is this might be the first diet I could stick to!

I was very dizzy on Day 1. But when I reach Day 2..the dizzy feeling is gone. Drinking coffee somehow made me dizzy, cigarettes also make me dizzy. So I try to avoid that.

Anyways on Day 4 I experience being dizzy again. But now on day 8 not dizzy anymore. Hope that helps.
