one last symptom i'd like to mention-cardiac issues. they may have been related to thyroid/adrenal fatigue. not sure. scared the shiz outta me though. woke up one night w my heart beating out of my chest (panic attack style but worse) and i HAD to vomit. puked but my heart kept racing and i was heavily sweating. sat down at the computer trying to figure out what was going on (i suggest someone to go to the e.r.). i looked at the clock and it was around 3:30am. classic cortisol time. anyways, i started craving oj and bananas. yuck! i hate sugar!! i was going flippin' crazy. thank god my hubby still ate these foods. went in the fridge and downed a jug of oj and stuffed in a few bananas. slowly but surely i was able to go to bed. i was killing myself. no doubt. i had a few more puking episodes w a racing heart. read matt stone and bam! i knew my metabolism was getting funked up. mark sisson says staying in keto for too long WILL mess w the metabolism. i didn't listen because it felt so good. damn ketones! added some sweet taterz and fruit and now i'm good to go. please be safe. i do believe that lack of carbs is VERY stressful to our bodies (even if we CAN do it), especially to someone w weak adrenals/thyroid. btw, all those symptoms above have been reversed w the addition of paleo/primal carbs
one other symptom i forgot. gallbladder issues. it WASN'T the fat, i assure you!! apparently i was so very low on vit. c that i was starting to get scurvy symptoms. i'm not a pirate!! i was eating my bell peppers and veggies that had vit. c. eating fruit took away the spasms almost instantly. all i know is that i have been through the diet ringer and counting macronutrients does not work for this chick.
