    Anemia problems?

    Well, I took a long nap yesterday and felt much better! And today I'm a little more awake, my skin looks better, and my rings are looser. So I think I'll just have to be patient and listen to my body a little more.

    Anemia problems?

    I'm on day 8, and have been feeling REALLY exhausted the whole time so far, and have had headaches most days. I know feeling tired is normal at the beginning, but I feel like it should be getting better by now. I started this program after a miscarriage in March and a ruptured ectopic pregnancy in June, to help my hormones reset and stop stress eating. I'm taking a 50,000 iu Vitamin D prescription once weekly, which is probably not compliant, but it's a prescription. I was also told to take a vitamin with iron, because between the endless weeks of bleeding and the rupture/surgery, I was a little bit anemic. I had been taking Fertility Blend vitamins, which are supposed to help balance hormones and support healthy ovulation. They have a good amount of iron in them, but also rice flour (the only non compliant ingredient), so I stopped. I really liked them, though, and felt like they were helping (but who knows). What have any of you done for anemia? Should I just keep taking the vitamins, and let the rice flour do what it will? Do you find that this diet alone is enough to help with iron levels?
  3. This is me too! This was day 7, and nothing so far. I'm feeling exhausted, and I was headachey for the first couple days, but I haven't really craved any sugary/carby/etc. foods so far. The last time I tried a Whole 30, though, the cravings didn't get really bad until day 13-15. On day 16 I had a fight week my fiance and ate a sandwich haha. Hopefully I am more prepared for that this time!
