hollylu Posted September 17, 2012 Share Posted September 17, 2012 I am on day 3 and feeling great! I have been having eggs, meat, and a piece of fruit for breakfast; my special salad for lunch (arugula, a fermented veggie like kraut or beets, pea shoots, lemon juice, olive oil, and leftover meat or canned tuna), and meat and lots of veggies for dinner. Before bed I have a small snack - a carrot, 1/2 an apple, or a handful of nuts. Everything is going well except that I couldn't get to sleep last night (Day 2). I know from experience that I need more carbs than a lot of people, and I can't do extreme low carb without suffering from insomnia and depression. I don't want to eat too much fruit.... Today I have eaten 1/2 avocado, 2 figs, 1/2 cup of raspberries, and I am having a sweet potato with dinner. Any other suggestions about getting enough carbs without cheating or overdoing it on the fruit? Anyone else have this problem? (I did a search for 'carbs' in this forum, but didn't find anything useful). Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
