The Trouble Begins
Chapter # 1: Warning Shots

As obvious, the Paleo diet cuts off a lot of carbohydrates and dairy products from one’s diet. When you start up with the Paleo diet, the first few weeks might be particularly hard on you. Many Paleo gurus brush this off by stating this as an adaption phase for your body, from a high-carb diet to a low one. Many people fall for this trap and continue with the diet plan but the reality is somewhat different; you will find out soon enough. The following are a list of side affects you may experience when starting out with the Paleo regimen:
• Headache
• Fatigue
• Nausea
• Lack of energy
• Lack of concentration
• Weakness
• Light-headedness
• Dizziness
• Irritability
• Constipation and/or diarrhea
• Body aches
• Cold sweats
You might start experiencing them within the first 12 hours of dieting. These side effects may resolve within a few days or may last for up to 2 – 4 weeks in some extreme cases.
