I'm doing a 21 day challenge as a start to the paleo diet. I am doing fine, my wife not so much. She is having nausea and low energy.
The same thing happened years ago when we tried to do the Atkins diet.
We are eating all organic and pastured meats. I've provided her with plenty of food, including snacking options. What do you guys suggest? I told her to eat some fruit as the sugar might help her out... I really don't want her to quit as we are only one day 3!!
Thanks in advance.
here is my food journal, it's missing the first day or so http://nickladieu.com
Oh my wife has a history of hypo glycemia and is also overweight and on blood pressure medications (a few of the many reasons we are trying to get her on a healthy track.. I talked to her a few minutes ago and she says she feels fine as long as she lays down)
====UPDATE==== I'm trying to get her to eat more and she has been trying. Right now it has gotten worse and now includes the chills and body aches. Thoughts guys?? She is cooking up some sweet potato as I type this and I had her eat some raw milk cheese
====NEXT DAY UPDATE==== Lots of fat, lots of sweet potato, lots of bacon, and lots of sleep. She is feeling fine today. Thanks for all the advice people. She let herself get hungry and this is when it all began.
