Apologies for the length. Long time lurker, first time post. I am a 22 year old female, and I have been paleo for a year. I have been in a very long relationship with my excruciatingly gorgeous boyfriend, yet I have for the past few months had trouble having any interest in sex. It's been bothering me enough to embarrassingly turn to PaleoHacks, yet I haven't found much guidance.
Edit Let's clarify my diet and my typical food intake. Morning: 4 slices of thick bacon, 3 eggs (onions, peppers, garlic) cooked in ALL of the leftover grease. Ketchup, 2c coffee. Followed by a snack, either an orange or Fage full-fat greek yogurt and raw honey. About 1c of yogurt, 1 tbs of honey.
Mid-day/Evening: Varies with Whole foods hot bar. Sometimes salmon sushi, often chicken thighs and spinach/broccoli, meats cooked in coconut milk, sausage, and other greasy meats. I go home and eat my 90% dark chocolate from Lindt. Drink some green tea with jasmine. Sometimes eat larabars. I often eat white rice, white potatoes, and sweet potatoes, so I do NOT stay under 50g of carbs. If I notice I am low carb, I eat them. Recently I've been stacking my plate with broccoli, carrots, and salad-things.
I'm a tiny [small frame, 5'0"] 97 lbs, and I probably eat about 1,400-1,500 cal a day. I eat until I have a food baby, okay? Every time. My weight is genetic, we're all this small. My grandmother and mother are smaller than me, and look pregnant. Idk. I have a sweet tooth, and I give into it in "Paleo" ways, such as dark chocolate and paleo baked goods. I am lactose intolerant and never indulge in grains. I take fish oil supplements, and drink a LOT of black coffee daily. Possibly around 2 "Klean Kantines" worth a day?
I just started crossfit [1mo], and otherwise run short distances for fun. Before that, I did StrongLifts. I'm a science student, and have a heavy workload, which often stresses me out. I don't have eyes for any other men, either. My boyfriend attempts to be romantic and I just can't psychologically get into it. It's extremely upsetting. When I was on the SAD/vegetarian diet, this was not an issue, even with my chub. Now, I seem to be fixated on my little stomach puff and feel self-conscious and can't get into anything.
Okay, sorry for the novel. Any advice is extremely appreciated.
