I have been following th Fuhrman diet for 3 weeks now. Yesterday I started feeling dizzy. Today I felt noticeably dizzier. I googled diziness and low calcium and discovered that not having enough calcium can indeed cause dizziness and cramping.
My Sparkpeople nutrition tracker showed that I was consistently LOW on calcium and protein while eating only fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, and legumes.
So, I am adding the Weight Watcher's recommended 3 glasses of milk back to my diet.
The Fuhrman diet is dairy free and free of animal products, which cleared the decongestion in my sinuses and lungs for the first time in years for the better part of most days.
I will monitor whether adding milk to my diet causes me to become congested again.
