Headaches on the HCG Diet

The HCG Diet can cause changes in your body’s metabolic process like any other dietary transition. As your body adjusts to the transition you might experience symptom like headaches. This typically occurs during the first few days of the P1 diet.

Just as you experience headaches from reducing sugar and caffeine intake, with HCG diet, you can experience similar symptoms. Your body expects to receive the same fuel it used to receive. In addition to that, the HCG in your body is forcing your stored fat into your bloodstream as a source of energy. So this is a different source of energy, as a result, you may experience a headache.

Fortunately, this doesn’t last very long. Most dieters experience a headache for 1-2 days of their HCG protocol. It is also common that those who experience a headache were on a high sugar diet on their gorging days. In this case, the headache is more of a metabolic detoxification from sugar rather than the HCG itself. If you are on the traditional diet, then probably you may just be protein deprived.

Understanding the changes can help you alleviate and minimize your headaches. There are few things that you can do about it.

  1. Drink plenty of water. Sometimes, when you are on HCG Diet you may have headaches because you are dehydrated.
  2. Are you getting enough sleep? Some have said that they sleep a lot less during HCG Diet. Well, it’s a well-known fact that when you lack sleep you can get a headache.
  3. Gorge on fatty foods during loading phase to prevent carb withdrawal symptoms. A person who consumes a lot of carb before starting the diet, the worst their headaches will be. Aside from a headache, you may experience hunger, muscle sore, food cravings and nausea when detoxing from bad carbs.
  4. Some dieters also found that eating apple helps ease their headaches. This is a natural remedy and it works. But when you do the apple trick, see to it that you remove 1 fruit from your dinner or lunch.
  5. Aspirin can help relieve pain. Be sure that you have a couple on hand in case you suddenly feel a headache.
