I have allergic reactions to high tyramine/histamine foods, vegetables, nightshades, peppers and eggs, I can't go back to high carb diet, I tried it a few days and I suffered headaches, depression, low appetite, my Paleo template right now is:
Breakfast: safe starch + 2 tablespoons of coconut oil.
Lunch: safe starch + meat + 2 tablespoons of coconut oil.
Dinner: safe starch + meat + 2 tablespoons of coconut oil.
*Safe starches: yam, cassava, taro, white rice, green plantains. - *Meats: fish and chicken.
I can't eat beef meat because it gives me a lethargic feeling, I am waiting my digestive enzymes with ox bile to try again beef meats.
I am 27 years old, 168cm - 118lb, under eating since I was child because of a very poor appetite, ironically low carb diet sometimes lifted my depression and stimulated my appetite, I never enjoyed food before paleo low carb diet.
Coconut oil alone give me a lot of energy and lifted my depression in just minutes, depression is an a energy problem, my body can handle for now maximum 2 tablespoons of coconut oil per meal, I tried 3 tablespoons and I didnt felt good (nausea, lethargic, laziness).
My dinner yesterday was: 100g of white rice, 2 tablespoons of coconut oil, 3.3 oz of sea bass fish (macro 60% fats - 21% protein - 19% carbs - 453 calories), I drink the tablespoons of coconut oil but I am thinking make shakes with unsweetened cocoa powder, I am taking multi vitamins, fish oil omega 3, potent probiotics, turmeric curcumin, magnesium, 5000 UI of vitamin D, digestive enzymes.
Is it ok that my only fat source is the coconut oil? I was in VLC diet for 10 weeks but my mistake was too much exercise (cardio 60 min daily) , sometimes too much protein and under eating (1500-1700 calories per day), recently all my blood tests are normal, but I have a food allergy (high eosinophils), I can't eat vegetables, when I was a child a vegetable salad gave me a severe allergic reactions, anyways I dont like vegetables, I know that other fats sources exist like butter, avocados, fatty meats etc.. but these fats source put me on lethargic state, they don't give me energy, I am taking digesti enzymes but these enzymes dont have ox bile so I am waiting for my new enzymes.
Can i live only drinking coconut oil or coconut oil shakes with my starches and lean meats? I wont need another fat source? Think that I dont have another choice, I can't back to high carb diet, this a situation of live or death, no psychiatric meds worked for me this last 3 years, only paleo diet lifted my depression sometimes before eating, I now know that after removing my food allergies I will be cured, I was eating too much eggs, cheese, butter, olive oil and vegetables this last 10 weeks.
