Ugh! So I'm healthier than I've ever been, the most muscled and probably the lowest bodyfat, but now I'm so 'healthy' that my blood pressure is on the very low end of normal and I'm having symptoms like lightheadedness and feeling weak in the arms and legs. The first time it happened, I confused the lightheadedness with too-low carbs and I ate a fruit bun (I wasn't on a whole30 at the time but it didn't make me feel better). However somehow I've used this as an excuse to fall off the wagon in a major way, eating ice cream, chocolates and biscuits (cookies) as much as I like :-( The Dr took some blood this morning to see if anything major is going wrong, but he seems to be saying I need to just live with it. The only things he's advised at the moment are to keep up the exercise (when I can work up the energy to walk etc it has made me feel better), and to make sure I drink a couple of cups of coffee a day. I'm wondering if some 'electrolytes' might help too. Is there a whole30-approved electrolyte mix? Anyone else had this problem?
