Just a little about myself:
I'm 20, a student majoring in Electrical Engineering, I love music and play guitar, and am always on the lookout for any method of bettering myself as I've been overweight for probably 10 years.
I've been practicing the Warrior Diet for about 2 and a half months now. I fast (sometimes eat a vegetable, nut or fruit in the early afternoon) about 20 hours everyday (if you count sleep) and eat a large meal during the last 4 hours of the day. About a month ago, I discovered MDA (my PB book is on order) and now I eat as primal as possible during the 4 hour eating window. I've cut out grains completely, eat between 50-100g of carbs a day (I don't actually measure that value) and eat as much protein and good fat as possible. I feel great and have lost 10 pounds overall but have also gained so much muscle mass. I feel more limber and more at peace with my own body/body cycles than ever.
But, over the past week, I've been slowly breaking out in hives all over my body and even in my mouth. My doctor thinks it's a herpetic infection but I can't think of anyway I got it or anyone I could have gotten it from. I've been eating more nuts than I ever have before and am very afraid that I've somehow developed an allergy to nuts.
I guess I'm asking for any advice on how to treat it or any advice on what to stay away from in terms of medication. My doctor prescribed me on an anti-viral, acyclovir, and I've been taking a little benadryl. There's improvement but not much.
Any advice? Thanks for any help!
