I went to see my doctor last week (she's new) and she is hypoglycemic like me. The reason I went to see her was because I was feeling dizzy...often. She proceeded to tell me to go on a high protein, low carb diet, and wants me to eat every 2 hours. Fine I said, and I've been doing it since last week. I did mention to her that I had tried the "carbohydrate addicts diet" in 2000 and got wicked migrains from it and that's when I discovered I was hypo.
So now I'm back on this low-carb, high protein thing and the headaches have started since last Thursday. So far I had one day without headaches...OUCHIES.
Any suggestions from any of you would be so great. I'll put an example of what I've been eating:
2 pieces of 14 grain bread with a bit of margarine (becel) and 1 sliced hard boiled egg (salt & pepper)
1 16 oz mug of herbal tea, with sweether
Snack size baggie of sliced green peppers
with 1 oz of fresh made guacamole (no oil or fats added)
yesterday: talapia with green beans
today: cob salad
Today: 4 strawberries
Yesterday: green peppers with hummus
Yesterday: Salmon with asparagus & lemon sauce
Today: Chicken breast with brussels sprouts
Yesterday: about 10 baked tortilla chips w/guacamole
Tonight: 4 pieces of cheese wrapped in turkey breast slices.
And that's an example of how I've been eating. My head is absolutely killing me. It's not migraine grade yet, but I'm sure like last time, it will come. When I'm on a high carb diet, I gain a huge amount of weight. I just feel like I can't win (in a lot of pain right now so hard to be "positive" about it all).
Thanks for readin and any suggestions. (did I mention I have PCOS???) Yup, got that too. :o)
