I've been doing the Paleo thing for about a week. My exercise level has stayed the same (3 days of CrossFit), but my meat consumption has gone from a few times a week tops to several times a day. The past few days I've felt absolutely exhausted, very little energy and kind of spacey. Is this just my body detoxing the dairy, grains and legumes (which I ate tons of before Paleo)?
And kind of TMI, but has anyone else had digestive system issues since starting Paleo? Even though I got plenty of fiber and water before Paleo, my system seems to be in overdrive now.
Edited 1/23 I'm now over a week in and I think my body is adjusting! My skin already looks a lot better than it did a week ago. I'm not 100% yet, but I don't feel really sleepy anymore and my digestive system has settled down. I actually don't think it was the increase in meat that was causing problems as much as going from low-fat to high-fat without doing it gradually.
