Hi. I've been paleo for 6 weeks and have been trying to feed the family paleo (although they still seem to find ways of getting what they want!). My problem is that since cutting down carbs to what I presume is adequate (cup of rice a day or 3-4 small potatoes), all of us have experienced bloodshot eyes.
I've read that this could be down to VLC, and must admit that the first 2 weeks this was probably the case until I stumbled across the 'safe starches' idea. We initially had sore dry eyes but now they are just bloodshot all the time but without the irritation.
After 4 weeks of including safe starches should our eyes have healed?
PLEASE NOTE - our eyes have always been clear and bright previously and we have had no problems before going paleo. Apart from this problem I'm feeling great, spotty skin has cleared up and I have much more energy.
Thanks for any help and advice you can give.
