I am not exactly Paleo because my diet is more strict (because my body does not tolerate a whole bunch of Paleo foods).
To make sure you understand why I am not eating a lot of other Paleo foods (like nuts, butter, coconut oil, EVOO) - I am lactose and gluten intolerant, I have a gastric erosion and leaky gut syndrome. Every time I try to eat something other than what is listed below, it bothers my stomach and I am in pain for hours (sometimes days).
SO THIS LIST IS COMPRISED FROM THE FOODS THAT DO NOT BOTHER MY STOMACH:
This is what I eat:
- Vegetables (except nightshades, peppers and onion family)
- Tubers - rutabaga, carrot, beets, parsnips.
- Grass fed lamb, chicken breast, organ meats, fish (no eggs)
- Bone broth
- Fruit (except citrus fruit).
I do not eat nuts or oils or dairy because of my gut issues - they bother me.
Due to low energy I have decided to cut off all fruit. I went cold turkey for two days - I feel I am getting better, but it is too early to tell.
Hence my question:
Since I am already not eating a bunch of stuff, am I going to deprive myself of anything?
By cutting out all fruit and berry, am I going to miss some important/vital micro and macro nutrients, vitamins or anything else of that sort?
Is there anybody on this board who eats only vegetables and meat/fish? If you do, how long have you been doing it for? Any complications health wise?
Please let me know.
The reason I am thinking of cutting out all fruit is because I am feeling extreme fatigue and have no idea what to do. This fatigue is on and off and I cannot figure out the pattern. I am going to see my doctor soon, but I just want to know if it can be related to my diet somehow.
Additional information: I have a sweet tooth and LOVE SWEETS and fruit. I usually eat fruit with every meal and for snacks.
