Sweets headache after low-carbing?
I'm on day 16 of Atkins, and up until today I've avoided all sweets, even artificial sweeteners. I know my taste buds have adjusted because today I decided to try, with my little bit of post day-14 freedom, a small "dessert." It was just 2 tbs of cream cheese with 1 tsp of granular Splenda added.
It tasted SO sweet, though, that I really couldn't eat it. And almost immediately after tasting it, I got a sharp headache.
Has anyone here ever heard of such a reaction? Or know why this happened?
