How do you feel otherwise? Any out of ordinary symptoms? When I came down with adrenal fatigue I could hardly eat a bite. Just want to make sure you don't have something else going on causing the lack of appetite.

If you're just paleo for general health, you're probably okay using those things, but if you have known wheat issues, at least cut the lip balm, since it has a direct path to your stomach. I'm sensitive to wheat, and I finally figured out that one... (more)
