It's not just ketosis, but also sugar & salt withdrawal combined with fluid re-regulation. Make sure you are drinking enough water and getting adequate minerals in your diet.

You can search for paleo-friendly doctors in your area, and find someone who can see your complete medical history and examine and monitor you. That way you'll have good advice from someone who understands your whole picture.

you can save the scraps, freezing them until you have a decent bag of them, and then render them into tallow (low heat crock pot). Or throw them into the stock pot. Or just eat it.
