I too had this problem after my first stage. I was told that this is because of lack of proteins and vitamins due to restricted diet. You have to make up the loss by having enough calories - normally a person needs about
2300 calories. You can have lots of choclates, banana shake, juices (if you can tolerate), diet supplements, milk, etc. Ensure that you have enough water to avoid dehydration.
