How I feel?

I felt great all day, I wasn't as hungry as I thought I would be. Then at 3pm I hit a slump where I was struggling to keep my eyes open. On the way home on the tube, I felt a bit dizzy and had a slight headache. This usually happens in the first few days as your body is experiencing a withdrawal effect from all the sugary and processed foods your body is used to. I think the fact I drank loads of water today (I am usually really bad) helped reduce my headaches to a minimum. Water helps flush out the system. Replace coffee with green tea for the first week to also reduce headaches.
