OK so update here: I've been eating only non-starch paleo with no dairy which of course means low carb. My cravings have been non-existent (yay!) but my energy has slowly gone down hill and this period has come with CRUSHING fatigue amongst other miserable symptoms. I've had small urges the last 2 days for chocolate and sweet potatoes so today I indulged. 4 squares of 90% dark chocolate and a big ass sweet potato with globs of pastured butter. A-MAZ-ING. I feel SO much better. I feel like I'm coming back to life. I'm going to dose myself the next few days until the period is over and perhaps even afterwords:-) Lady needs her carbs.
