MRM2407 Posted April 17, 2014 Share Posted April 17, 2014 Hi everyone - I searched through the forum but didn't see much addressing light headedness. Before my Whole30, I ate a paleo-ish diet but didn't exclude dairy or natural sugars and occasionally still ate legumes and grains. I have loved the Whole30 and feel great, with the exception that I've been getting light headed for at least the past week whenever I stand up (almost passed out over the weekend). I never experienced this previous to starting my Whole30 so it's a little concerning. My husband thinks it might be low BP (mine has always been right where it should be) and suggested I eat more salt? But I feel like we eat a lot of salt already, all of our meals are salted (we use Real Salt) so I'm not sure. Any suggestions or advice would be appreciated! Below is my last couple of days worth of meals (90% organic) to give you an idea of what I've been eating (I drink water throughout the day as well, not listed). Monday: Breakfast: 2 eggs, scrambled in c-nut oil with sug/nitrate free sausage, kale, peppers, and onions. 1/2 orange. Coffee blended w/1 Tcoconut oil. Lunch: Lg bowl of soup made w/homemade chicken broth, sug/nitrate free chorizo, kale, leeks, coconut oil. 1/2 orange. coconut flakes and a few nuts. I was still a little hungry after, so I had a 1/2 mug of soup around 2:30pm. Dinner: Grass-fed beef meatloaf, roasted sweet potato w/olive oil, stewed home-canned tomatoes w/ghee. Herbal tea before bedtime Tuesday Breakfast: 2.5 eggs (hubs and I split scramble made with 5 eggs), in ghee with sausage, kale, peppers, and onions. Half an orange. Black Coffee. Half an orange. coffee blended w/1 T coconut oil.. Lunch: Leftover grass-fed beef meatloaf, 1/2 roasted sweet potato (in olive oil), tomatoes. A few black olives. Dinner: 5 Venison meatballs w/spaghetti squash sauteed with peppers, onions, tomato, and 1 "dippy" egg cooked on top. 1+ C Roasted Broccoli. Herbal tea before bedtime Wednesday Breakfast- 2.5 eggs, scrambled in ghee with sausage, kale, peppers, and onions. Half an orange. Black Coffee. Lunch: 4 Venison meatballs w/spaghetti squash sauteed with peppers, onions, tomato (& C-nut oil). 5 black olives. Half an orange. Rooibos Tea Dinner: crock pot bone in chicken breast, 1+C cauliflower roasted with curry/turmeric/olive oil, 1-1.5 C sauteed chard w/c-nut oil, onion, paprika, raisins, topped with c-nut oil toasted almonds. Thursday (today, so far) Breakfast: 2.5 eggs w/sausage, kale, peppers, onions, & 1/2 avocado. 1/2 orange. 1 tiny kiwi w/coconut flakes. black coffee. Lunch: leftovers from Wed dinner, 1 tiny kiwi.
