My headaches are back... Or never really left, I guess.
Tuesday, August 13, 2013
I really thought salt was the problem, but yesterday and today I've had the worst headaches. I increased my carb intake a little yesterday (from under 100 to 132) to see if eating some would make the headache go away, and it did for a short time but the pain came back.
Before I did that I tried the salt thing and no dice. Plus, I've become a salt-fiend. The nutrition tracker is telling me that my sodium levels are actually a little too high. :)
So I'm wondering if my body is upset that I'm eating less often. Is that a thing? I got plenty of calories yesterday, but I spaced them out like meals and didn't snack. I haven't been snacking at all and I've been a grazer since I can remember.
Or maybe I just need to suck it up and realize that I'm still in grain/processed food withdrawal and it will go away when it goes away. I read something somewhere that said that the longer this takes the more the person probably needed the diet overhaul in the first place. I was convenience food queen, so that is probably true for me.
I will hang in there. I'm not even a month in. I just wish it was tiredness or something, and not pain.
Sorry for the whining.
