    My insurance may actually pay. The give me 12 chiro visits a year + more if he writes a diagnosis. I never did the flex plan because my insurance is so good.

    From all you've described, your symptoms appear to be stress related. The more worried/ stressed/ concerned you are over something, even the symptoms themselves, the worse they appear to be. Maybe it's a form of anxiety?

    Unfortunately, my husband is the cook. I'll ask him, but he usually doesn't write anything down.

    Thanks NK, I'm sure that anxiety and stress does affect things, but I was absolutely fine until I crashed 3 weeks ago. When I close my eyes, I fall asleep very quickly. Almost immediately, my HR falls precipitously, and I wake up suddenly gasping for breath. It lasts for a few hours, then ends and I am able to sleep normally. I am scheduling my sleep apnea study next week, but I didn't have sleep apnea until 3 weeks ago either. I am starting a daily Yoga practice today to deal with the stress.

    I've been reading that long term VLC eating can actually turn down thyroid function. I am hoping that eating a normal amout of regular carbs will help restart my system, but it will take time.

    Wt. 224.4 +2.2 Had 1/4 tsp of salt at midnight. 4 hrs sleep on the couch. Same breathing and anxiety issues. Can I survive on 4 hrs sleep/night?

    Yesterday's food was perfect. Didn't eat after 6pm. Tonight I will take my meds just after dinner and not drink my Natural Calm magnesium tea just in case that is the culprit robbing me of sleep.

    Making more Dr appts this morning

    Today, I made a bunch of Dr. appointments which should help me find more answers...a sleep study, my chiro, my yearly physical. Not sure why I need the last one because I have seen or spoken to her 3x i the last 3 weeks.

    My new Primal goals are to eat balanced, sleep 6+ hrs/night and get well. Weight loss will be secondary.

    I went to see my chiropractor today. I laid it all out for him...how I went VLC, developed a sugar/carb binge issue, then had a physical crash with lots of scary symptoms and have now been diagnosed with hypoglycemia.

    He nodded his head and said "Well, No wonder. You have turned your body into a Ferrari with Paleo eating. When you started messing around with the fuel you had an acute breakdown due to inflammation." It is very common for those on this type of eating program to have extreme reactions when slipping back into old ways. He said it is likely that there really is nothing wrong with my thyroid and the hypoglycemia will resolve itself with a stable diet, as will the bingeing and other symptoms.

    He has always preached Paleo as Veg,Veg,Veg, & Meat. He never understood my need to get 130+grams of protein if I wasn't able to eat an optimal amount of veggies. I am finally listening.

    His suggestion:

    Specifically, he wants me to add starchy vegetables such as yams, beets, squash etc. to give my body something to run on in addition to the salad and other veg. that I already eat.

    I asked about fruit. He said "fruit and nuts are a condiment or rarely, dessert".

    He is also anti dairy like other Paleo purists, but he is ok with whey protein once in a while as long as it has no AS.

    He wants me to tone down the exercise to a manageable level. He suggested kettlebells. I'll try to do short lifting workouts at the gym.

    He was excited because he had just gone to see Robb Wolf and spent 1/2 an hour picking his brain. Apparently, they got along very well.

    I love my chiro because he is always the voice of reason. His ideas are easy to follow and make sense. I feel much calmer after my adjustment and our talk. At least I now have a clear path to follow.

    ***The lesson: In my desperate need to get thin, I lost sight of the big picture, optimal health. If I don't take care of my "Ferrari", I may crash and burn and never reach my destination.

    Can I echo this a bit?

    You will be happy eating upwards of two white potatoes a day... Give it a try!

    Example day.

    This has made ALL the difference! You might want a bit more calories, but that's just the basis for my calorie intake (I add some cheese here and there/a bit more beef on days I workout.)

    Any heavy lifting should take 30 minutes at the gym. No more. Short quick bursts like in High Intensity Interval Training is awesome.

    Of course, this is just what has been working for me. I hope everything works out for you!
