Happy New Years, I hope everyone is having a great day. About a few months ago, I went to visit a F.D.N (Fuctionial Dignostic Nutritionist). After various testing and observations, she decided to put me on a low-carb diet. I can eat all the green vegetables I want but I have stay away from dairy (except plain yogurt), nuts (except almonds), pork, legumes, grains, fruits, and starchy vegetables. She has given me a few supplements as well (kidney glandular, bromelain, and a herbal formula).
When I was on the diet, I ate the following: chicken with skin, grass-fed red meat, salmon, cod, fish oil, cooked cruciferous vegetables, zuchinni, cucumber, spinach, and almonds. I did not eat dairy because my body does not process it well. The only dairy product I eat sometimes is plain goat yogurt.
The longest I have been on this diet was for two weeks. I have experienced some good and bad results. Some of the good ones are: clearer skin, less nervousness, weight loss, and more satisfied after meals. Some of the bad ones are: more tired, cravings for high carb foods, and constipation. My F.D.N told me all the symptoms I am experiencing on normal.
I have tired many other diets: raw vegan, pescetarian, lacto-vegetarian, and vegan. This diet by far makes my skin the clearest. Should I stay on it or change?

Stay on your diet as it seems working with you. Do not worry for constipation as you can have this herbal supplement Digestic from Mimonis which I was used a few months a go when I got constipated. It is very effective for constipation and makes me more relaxed using it.
