jessicav Posted October 17, 2013 Share Posted October 17, 2013 So today I started my third day on the Autoimmune Protocol (autoimmune thyroid disease-hyper). So no nuts, seeds, eggs...but I am eating sweet potatoes. This morning I awoke to sweats and shakiness. It was similar to when I have had low blood sugar (which started happening recently when I became medicated again for my graves disease). I have two babies and a four year old, so being super agitated and feeling that awful is not conducive to a good morning taking care of my kids by myself. So, I got right into the kitchen and ate a banana while I threw a chicken burger and veggies (kale & butternut squash) into a pan. I also ate a date and had a swig of coconut milk while I waited. Within 15 minutes, the shakes stopped. Within one hour, after eating everything I felt 100% better but I would really like to avoid this in the future. Any suggestions? I am not happy with myself for eating two servings of fruit before I even ate my breakfast but I wasn't sure what else to do (I had a baby on the hip and another one bugging me for her breakfast). Is it normal to feel this way when you start avoiding sugar and I am overreacting? If so, I need to figure out a way to get through this without giving up and eating oatmeal. I am trying not to overthink this. Any help would be appreciated. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
