I'm on day three of primal. This evening, I had what I can only describe as a bonk. I felt light-headed, irritable, and I got really hungry for specific things. Namely, vanilla yogurt, potatoes, and a pumpkin cookie. I happened to be a few blocks from my co-op, so I went in and had all three. I felt better, but I still have a bit of a headache. I'm not too happy about slipping up, either. But it felt like a blood sugar plunge, and I had to eat those things.
This is what I ate today, up until then:
~6 oz.Green juice (Kale, cucumber, apple, carrot, celery, lemon and ginger)
Two scrambled eggs (in butter) with smoked salmon and cream cheese
Cup of tea
1/2 an avocado
About 20 almonds
two small pieces of dark (74%) chocolate
I felt fine, and not hungry before I left to do some errands. Then I bonked.
Am I just not eating enough? Now that I think about it, I have not altered my diet much, except for ditching grains. I used to eat granola and yogurt for breakfast, or have toast along with my eggs. I felt fuller on the bread and grains. Any advice?
