I started low carb yesterday and by the evening I felt a bit ill, a bit achy and headachy. I feel a bit worse this morning. Can it be carb flu so soon or am I just coming down with something? I'm trying to drink all the water I need and had plenty of butter and salt on my breakfast

It's probably withdrawal symptoms - aka The Dip. However I do hope you're only cutting out refined carbs not ALL carbs? I mean carbohydrates keep us alive and they're in all fruit & veg....??
