packelly Posted August 11, 2014 Share Posted August 11, 2014 Hi everyone! Let me start saying that I've never had low sugar problems. I started whole30 August 1st and did very well except for strong cravings of things I usually don't eat, but they would go away after a good 20 minutes. I fell off the wagon this past Thursday (day 7) when I decided to have 2 glasses of wine with dinner. My food was compliant all day it was just the 2 glasses of wine. I started over Friday and spent the weekend with strong sugar cravings. Like cravings that lasted hours and it didn't matter how much water I drank or how much protein, and fat I ate. I stayed compliant and except for a plum with breakfast and apple chips sprinkled over my salad I didn't have anything too high with sugar. Today I ate 3 egg whites, 1 egg with shredded carrots, half a sweet plantain with a little bit of black coffee at around 8:30am. At around 10:45 I started feeling a little nauseus, I was getting irritaded by silly things, felt warm and my head felt funny. I was also having a hard time concentrating. I decided to eat a banana at around 11:30 and drank about 20oz of water. I felt much better for about 2 hours. Around 1 I started feeling everything all over again plus a little jittery and very anxious. I had to run a few errands so I sucked it up until I got back to the office. Here I had my lunch, which was a taco salad minus the tortilla shell (ground beef, lettuce, tomatoes, with some spinach and the leftover half plantain. I feel much better. A coworker said that maybe I need to get my sugar checked, but I have never had sugar problems. I went the first 6 days last week without feeling this way, this would be my new 4th day so I'm not sure what's going on. Please help and tell me this is normal?
