Day 60: Cravings and Headaches – which comes first?

on August 5, 2013

Interesting conundrum because the last 2 days I have had a headache… not the debilitating pre-diet migraines but still, a persistent nagging ache that has lasted 2 days now. Yesterday I ate sugar loaded kids sweets and the headache started but I cant really remember which came first… and I ‘m wondering did the sweets trigger the headache or were there underlying factors (perhaps hormones?) that were responsible for both the headache and accompanying sugar cravings?

Yesterday I thought that the sweets had been the trigger but today I’m not so sure. The headache is still here and 6 biscuits and a handful of chilli doritos have found their way into todays food diary. Its a bit of a chicken and egg situation that I may never get to the bottom of… the only thing I can say for sure is that the headaches have definitely improved on this diet and sugar almost certainly plays a part in them – but which comes first? Only time will tell and staying off the sweets!
