If you feel negative side effects from your diet or exercise routine such as dizziness, nausea, weakness, pain, lightheadedness, headaches, or other symptoms, discontinue the program and resume normal eating or activity patterns. If you feel the pain or discomfort is severe or that your symptoms are worrisome, consult a health professional.
