For starters, my current diet is here: http://forum.bodybuilding.com/showpo...&postcount=563
I PM'd Eileen about this but I also realize she's busy and would like as much input as possible.
The reason I ask is because yesterday (the second day on Keto), I suddenly hot an onset of bad upset stomach/diarrhea and flu-like symptoms (chills, slight aches, a headache). I've read some older threads, and they seem to go back and forth between saying that's normal for the "induction" into ketosis and saying that the person is actually suffering from the flu. No one around me is sick and I don't believe I have the flu, but I also can't say for certain.
This happened around 6:30pm, after my tuna meal (I swapped the ordering of my meals around.) I slept a bit and at 11:23pm I felt slightly better stomach-wise but still have body aches and a headache.
I woke up today and decided to test myself for ketones and I tested positive in the large (dark purple - 150) range. I'm still suffering from diarrhea and cannot eat anything due to feeling nauseous still. I'm still aching and I have a headache also.
Is this just from 'induction' into ketosis and not enough water/fiber? Or is it something else?
Update: I had the usual eggs for breakfast and while I thought I was feeling better, I ended up in the bathroom yet again. What's wrong with me?

I was reading in a keto article linked to in one of the stickies that the part of your brain that controls nausea is right next to the part that controls appetite and fullness.. he concludes saying that it's natural to feel nautious sometimes after a fatty meal because it's telling your body is full and might like push over to that part of the brain or something. I dunno, I don't really understand anatomy.we sacrifice.

I read that too, but then I read that there is no center that controls appetite. It was thought there was for a while, but then that was changed.
I did end up with either the flu or food poisoning. My girlfriend was sick also with the same symptoms so that confirms it was not diet-related in my mind.

It has happenned to me earlier when I felt like puking after taking 2 tbsp of flax oil. On another note, flax oil gives me diaohhrea so I use fish oil.
