    Default Has anybody felt excessively emotional on a low carb diet?

    Like being more sensitive, crying more often etc?

    Yes....I was so short tempered, and emotional it was horrible, but I only felt like that for 2-3 days.

    I'm on day 4, and previously ate way too much sugar.

    I normally cry twice a year, and have cried twice in two days.

    But my period is due, so I wasn't sure if it was the low carbs.

    Thanks everybody.

    I've cut my carbs, but not really low. I aim for 45g at brekky & lunch, 15g for morning and arvo tea and try and have a low carb dinner. Its similar to what I ate when I had GD (although I had to have alot more snacks then).

    I used to be addicted to sugar and always felt awful. I've found balancing my carbs out over the day to be great, I don't get hungry and I feel alot better within myself. Too much sugar makes me feel awful, not enough carbs and I can't function.

    I managed to curb some of my tension with hot chocolate.

    1 tbs pure organic Cocoa
    1 sachet of splendor (sp?)
    low fat milk

    It was probably all in my head, but it still tasted really good and made me feel better...

    I'm limiting them to about 60, being 10-15 for each meal than snacks.

    I've found a peppermint tea with a piece of 85% dark choc (1.9g carbs) takes the edge off.


    Will try cocoa as I found a non chemical sweetener which is ok.

    very low carb diets mess with your entire body including your head.

    I did Atkins a few years ago, lost 20kg VERY fast (as in a matter of weeks) but I got so sick and could not continue it.

    Yes! I was emotional and had the shakes. I'm very addicted to carbs. I'd like not to be though.

    I know. If I wasn't me, I would lecture myself (you know what I mean), but I just want to lose 16kg in 3 months. then I'm in my healthy weight range. this weight is a monkey on my back. I have lost about 15kg over 9 months, but just want the rest off, and i can't shake my bad food habits.

    I am not doing shakes or anything. I have fruit, vegetables, nuts, seeds, tofu, fake meat, cheese, yoghurt, bit of dark chocolate, and exercise at least an hour a day. I do have protein powder, but I only have a shake before the gym or if I'm running late. I am having probably a protein bar a day as a snack, mostly after exercise.
