What you are experiencing is likely detox as you acclimate to this way of eating.
Most of us have been through it, too.
I started the BTD about three and a half years ago after having been diagnosed with lots of food allergies. I was in the bookstore one day, looking for allergy cookbooks and stumbled across Eat Right For Your Type. I glanced at it, saw that it was a diet based on blood type, and scoffed, 'What will they think of next!' Then I looked at the back cover, read the part for Os, and realized that the little blurb on the back about what Os are not supposed to eat was exactly what I was most allergic to -- wheat and dairy! Okay, maybe I should examine this a little more closely before I discard it. I read the O section and by the time I was through, I had decided to buy the book. Virtually everything that I was allergic to I was not supposed to eat for my blood type. That was highly compelling evidence!
I experienced headaches every day when I first started, and still had heartburn (neither of these symptoms was a new thing for me), but they both stopped within about three weeks. For the first time in YEARS, I felt GOOD. My previous medical history included DAILY headaches and heartburn, very frequent migraines, a history of depression (2 major episodes), ezcema, digestive issues -- chronic gas, bloating, frequent diarrhea/constipation, weight problems, hypoglycemia, low blood pressure, etc.
Nowadays, I feel GREAT. I have about one migraine a year now, and they aren't nearly as severe as they used to be (and are usually associated with having eaten some major avoids!), I RARELY get headaches anymore, my ezcema is gone. I am not depressed, and don't expect to be so again! My hypoglycemia is only an issue if I eat avoids. My blood pressure is normal, my digestive troubles are GONE, and my weight is easy to control now.
I can't say enough for what ER4YT has done for my state of mind, either. I have more energy than my peers, who all felt great in their 20s and are beginning to slow down. I felt like crap in my 20s and I now am just revving my engine!
Hang in there, Maria. It does get easier, and it is SOOOOOO worth it!
