I have been "Paleo" for the past 5 months. Typical diet is eggs/meat for breakfast, banana, occasional green smoothie= Lunch - Meat/salad - Dinner/ Grass Fed Meat or Fish with Veggies. Snacks: Nuts or apples
My feet have been cramping for weeks now.
Any ideas as to what may be causing this? I supplement with Fish Oil, Vit D.
When you start eating lower carbohydrate food, you body no longer holds on to the water. (think Carbo-"hydrate"). When the water leaves, so do some of the electrolytes. This will cause some muscle cramping.
One thing you can do is supplement with potassium. Or better yet, find some Morton's Lite Salt and use about a teaspoon full a day on your food. Morton's Lite is made with 1/2 Potassium Chloride.
My feet were doing that too. Turns out I was low in potassium, magnesium and calcium! I took Natural Calm, calcium-magnesium supplements, and potassium supplements and drank lots of water. No problems since!
