I've been following this diet for 9 days now. I've lost 3.4lbs, which is wonderful. And I feel thinner (e.g. jeans are following off), which I love. My only problem is that I also feel weak. I work out at least 4 days a week and used to wake up feeling really strong. Since I have been on this diet, however, I feel a bit shaky instead of strong. What am I doing wrong? And how can I make this feeling go away?
also, make sure you're getting enough water, sodium, potassium, etc. - if you're doing major work outs without following up with replenishing what you've lost, that could leave you feeling weak (in addition to what the others have said regarding eating enough food). Plan to have a post workout snack of some sort - hummus and veggies or whole grain crackers, fruit, a smoothie, etc.
