Have. Been paleo for about 5 months, before lapsing for a month. Have returned to paleo lifestyle, as of today. Will I experience the low carb flu again? If so will it be as intense as the first time? Had it for about 7 days the first time.... Thanks:)

Ever since getting it the first time I never had it again, and no where near as intense if I did. Though I never FULLY relapsed for longs period of time. For example I had a few weeks on vacation with 1-2 "cheat" meals a day (grain like pizza/pasta) but never all 3. I doubt it made much of a difference but either way after going back to 100% paleo I did not have the "wtf why am I feeling depressed" feeling.

I doubt you'll have as much issue. Your body has a bit more practice with the physiological changes that are necessary, so adaptation should occur quicker. I know I can drop from my LC range to VLC without blinking when I feel like it.
