Hi all i'm new to the forum - and in the UK. I need some help with my diet please! I put on alot of weight when i was pregnant with my 3rd child...afterwards i gave up sugary things...and then i started the blood type diet (type o) and gave up wheat and potatoes. I was tired a lot and was always though from one carb fix to another or one caffeine fix to another. I started getting palpitations so gave up caffeine. I felt exhausted though ....and then I went paleo and then I ended up here. The problem i have is that any carbs seem to spike my sugar level - not high but enough to make it then crash - i gave up all carbs and fruit as that just made me dizzy and sick - I still felt tired a lot of the time (low carb flu maybe) and constipated - so i introduced some spelt crackers as i still couldn't eat fruit - i felt great yesterday -only had 3 crackers which comes to about 24g carbs. I did get a little dizzy after the last cracker though. today my sugar level is all over the place - I've been eating protein, meat and eggs, veg and salad, nuts and almond flour muffin to try and get it balanced. TBH this whole thing is a nightmare! I think going low carb has made me extremely hypoglycemic and im trying to find the right balance. I have to be quite active cos of 3 kids so i need some carbs but i can't eat fruit right now. Any suggestions what to do? Or anyone else had the problem? thanks! (p.s. i can't eat carrots, i think macadamia nuts were too sugary for me recently too)
