It is very possible that you are going through a detox that is partially physical and partially mental. Either way it can be tough.
Depending on how big of a change this is, your body may be cleansing and moving a lot of old stuff out while getting used to the new healthful stuff. You will get through this. Eventually your body adjusts to the clean!
It can also be a mental challenge to say good-bye to a lot of comfort foods. Cravings can be exhausting and depressing. But these too will diminish. In fact, this whole program is based on the idea that it takes 21 days to break a habit. Stick with it!
