Puffiness in face

    I am about a week into CT and I think I am losing body fat but my face is getting very puffy. Anyone else experienced this? I am doing cold showers, ice packs, and face dunks.

    Why are you still doing face dunks if you're doing cold showers and ice packs? The protocol goes from face dunks to ice packs to shower/baths. Also, a week? A bit fast isn't it? Or are you already acclimatized to the cold?

    I have been doing ice baths for 2 weeks now (no longer doing face dunking)

    and also get puffy under my eyes. I am also getting really bad headaches behind my eyes and top of my head. Does anyone else get awful headaches?

    BE CAREFUL!!!! don't be afraid to go slow. I've had to quit ALL CT because of what I've only realized now seems to be a VERY nasty head full of cold urticaria from either going too quick or too cold. I'd gotten as far a a few tubbings without a problem until i dropped the tub temp just a little too far or too long and whump: over 2 weeks of spreading, painful, swollen, crazy itchy rash behind ears, back of head and down back of neck. My naturopath suggested neem oil yesterday and that's FINALLY beginning to give a bit of relief. Was it just the CT? the combination of CT and BHRT (which I've also stopped)? god only knows, but I'm wiser and a little fearful! I'd love to see some cautions and suggestions from Dr. Kruse in addition to the group's "gung ho, we're in this together" :(

    I spent the last 2 days with a headache over the top left side of my head. I think it's sinus inflammation. Better this evening, though.

    I just thought the same thing?

    My face instantly lost some puffiness - so much so that i have people commenting on my weight loss - even though I haven't lost that much yet.

    I got comments like you look so fresh and bright! Are you taking any new vitamins?

    No. nothing new - just the same old.

    I have been paleo/low carb for years and years.

    The only difference is the CT.

    Wait: I have been taking bitter melon, that is new.
