Cris06 Posted May 12, 2018 Share Posted May 12, 2018 My background: I have asthma and allergies as well as skin issues. I also am allergic to peanuts, tree nuts, soy, shellfish and avocado. The first few days I actually felt great. I was super excited about starting and had energy. The last 5 days however, I’ve felt increasingly worse... super tired, irritable, fog-headed and losing my appetite for food. I have a legitimate fear of trying new foods because of my severe food allergies. But I’m really trying here. Typical daily menu: 64 oz of water (sometimes with lemon) Breakfast- 2 eggs with ghee and prosciutto or egg frittata with onions/peps/compliant sausage, 1 cup black coffee, 1 fruit like apple, orange or grapefruit Lunch- salad (lettuce/spinach) with carrots, bell pepper, tomatoes, green onion along topped with EVOO and vinegar, with some sort of protein - grilled chicken or pork or ground beef Dinner- Protein cooked in EVOO- I’ve had roasted and grilled chicken, compliant “sloppy joe”, grilled salmon, pulled pork, etc along with more salad or another veggie. A few times this week I also had some potatoes and yesterday made plantain for something different. Am I doing something wrong? I can’t function through another work week like this but I don’t want to give up. My husband and kids are ready to kill me. I’m not being my nicest self this week.
