Nope. I haven't noticed a difference. Are you drinking your water out of a straw? Someone told me once that if you take in air that can cause hiccups. Don't have any idea if that is true but thought I'd mention it.
No more than usual...I figured out a good way to get rid of 'em though...citrus [even half a lemon wedge (0.25g Net Carbs) seems to work] ends hiccups almost instantly [at least for me.] BTW, I know its not the Fructose...because cola [Pre-Atkins] didn't have the same effect.
Chello GJ. YES YES YES. WHOA. I almost forgot about posting this topic. I have had major hiccups. I wonder what the scientific reasoning for this is. Its strange. I am drinking tons of water, via straw and lips.. however I dont think thats why. I have always done that. I feel confident that its something in this WOL. I had a small thought that I think hiccups are a lack of air... and maybe the carbs presented air in our systems... ?? <shrug>> still unsure, just a thought.
This is so funny! I didn't even ask when I went through the hiccup stage because I thought I was a freak! My job entails talking on my phone and everyday, when I first started this WOE - several times a day - I had the hiccups! I'd be trying not to giggle when I hiccupped. I wondered if any of my customers thought I'd been drinking or something. I rarely ever had the hiccups before I started Atkins and don't have them anymore. They lasted about two to three weeks.
I am so glad to hear this. I had posted about 6 months ago about this very thing, but everyone who responded said no.
Azuremoon, I have been woke up from hicups too. LOL
hummm....Wonder what this is about.
