Most people have some symptoms of the low carb flu. My son and I had a headache.

Muscle burn is usually from the build up of lactic acid when exercising. IF this is happening while/after exercising then drinking water helps flush the excess but also you may be overexerting and may need to back off a little bit. IF it is happening with no exercise, I would tend to think it could just be the lower carb status you both are doing (particularly with the feeling fuzzy) which you may find just making sure you get more carbs in (ie beans). This is assuming you have no other medical conditions that may be playing into it (but since you said both you and your daughter are experiencing it, I tend to go with the low carb flu type symptoms).

I like living. I have sometimes been wildly, despairingly, acutely miserable, racked with sorrow, but through it all I still know quite certainly that just to be alive is a grand thing. Agatha Christie

I'm new to this forum and my daughter and I started SB diet on Oct 2 so we're still new to it as well. We've both lost 5-6 lbs the first week and never feel hungry or deprived but we've both developed a problem: muscle burn. I'm not sure what we're missing in our diets but since we aren't eating pre-packaged foods with all the fortified ingredients, we've come up short on something. Any ideas what is causing our muscles to burn at the slightest exertion as well a slight problem concentrating?
