I already mentioned that I've had a headache pretty much nonstop since I went off grains completely and changed to an Primal way of eating. I used to have daily headaches in the past, but they went away when I was doing Medifast and then also were gone for awhile last month. So I dunno what's going on here. Add to that the fact that all week my energy has been somewhat low (with a few bursts here and there), which I was attributing to lack of sleep. But last night I got decent sleep, and today I am just exhausted. I am so tired I can hardly get up. That's a problem since I have a bunch of company coming this weekend. I have lots to do in preparation, but both yesterday and today I feel really sluggish.
Some folks say it is "grain withdrawal" but I wasn't eating all that much grain to begin with. I am on day 8 of being grain-free, legume-free, sugar-free. I eat almost no processed foods. But I feel like I could go to bed and sleep all day. I am hanging in there with the eating plan, although I am starting to have my doubts. It hasn't been long enough to tell for sure how this way of eating is affecting me.
Breakfast was 2 local, free range eggs (over easy), a sausage patty made from pastured pork (it was far leaner than any commercial sausage I have ever had), 1/4 of a red pepper cut into strips, 1/2 cup of fresh local bing cherries, and black coffee. Lunch so far was 1/4 c macadamia nuts and 1/2 c watermelon. I will have some chicken and salad as well. No idea what's for dinner. Too tired to even think about it!
I hope this exhaustion lifts and the headache goes away very soon.
