Ladyshanny, thanks for your reply. The low carb issue is possible.
I probably have a starchy veggie every other day. What meal would the starchy veg be the most beneficial? I’m thinking lunch because afternoon is when my mood really tanks.
I do exercise - at least a decent walk everyday with alternating cardio days. On cardio days, I usually eat some fruit with a hard-boiled egg or an apple with nut butter as a snack.
Breakfast - 2 eggs cooked with ghee, a couple heaping handfuls of sautéed greens, a handful of blueberries, and a glass of almond milk. Bulletproof coffee an hour later. Lunch - Salmon patties, raw veggies with sauce (I’m usually not hungry for lunch). Snack - a green apple with a tablespoon of almond butter. Dinner - a medium sized bowl of coconut curry with 1/2 chicken breast, zucchini, broccoli and cauliflower rice. Snack - seaweed crisps.
Breakfast - sweet potato hashbrowns (1 medium yam) cooked in lots of ghee and two eggs. Glass of coconut milk. Bulletproof coffee. Lunch - taco salad with .25 lb beef, lots of greens, 1/2 avocado, 1 large tomato, herbs. Snack - carrots with sunshine sauce. Dinner - 1/2 avocado and tuna (about 1 can) in a few romaine leaves with a handful of black cherries.
I usually skip meat for one meal a day - might that be a problem? If I don’t have meat, I usually have eggs though. Maybe two isn’t enough, but I’m a small person and don’t feel well when I have large meals.
I have an autonomic nervous system disorder called POTs (it causes dysregulation in automatic functioning in my body - especially heart rate and blood pressure). I also have chronic migraines and undiagnosed digestive problems that cause frequent diarrhea and stomach cramps - hoping the Whole30 would help, but I may need to do low FODMAP. My period ended about 5 days ago, and PMS, period, and post-period has been pretty unpleasant on this diet.
Thanks so much for your help!!
