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?
