MamaGrok, my PMS did go down a LOT when I cut the grains! But not gone. I do have a lot of other problems and they all seem to be the vague "hormonal" ones that are hard to pin down. I got diagnosed with hypothyroidism a few years back and the meds for that helped my energy levels a lot. But yeah, I'm sure there are still other things going on. I will check out those doctors.
I have had problems with depression since I was a child, which makes sense from an emotional point of view, but at the same time, the depression is always in the winter. So I think there's a vitamin D part to it. This summer for the first time in my life I'm making an effort to get sun instead of avoid it. Lots of tank tops and no sunblock (unless I go to the beach). Maybe that will help sugar cravings too, we'll see.
MarissaLinnea, I appreciate the invite to the Whole 30, but I don't feel up to a group right now. Not sure why . . . But thanks I'll look up the 21 day detox. Any particular link?
