You're eating about 177g of protein a day? (I eat 2500cal and the nutrient calculator i use makes out 35% of calories to be 177g protein) That's way too much in my opinion, try cutting back & replace it with fat and see how you... (more)

Don't know much about this subject, but I'll ask a question to help answer a question. Do you wear contact lenses? Can you eat Broccoli? Loads of K. Opthamologist would be a better choice than optometrist.

I'm about 21 days into Primal eating and I noticed my eyes are always red now. It also started around the same time I think I went into Ketosis. Any idea why this is happening? Something with my thyroid?

Are you low carb? Going too low on my carbs (under 60 g) did this to me- tears are primarily glucose. Try a day with some potatoes or rice and see if your symptoms improve.
