Hey, I started Paleo about 7 days ago, about 100 carbs a day. Mostly eggs, bacon, coconut oil, salmon and some beef, chicken and greens (alot of fats, olive oil, butter, coconut oil).
The first 5 days were not too bad. As i expected, i felt tired, anxious and constant headaches. The last two days were the toughest. I guess i depleted my carb stores because i have to eat now every 3 hours. i wake up to eat every 3 hrs. i get the cold sweats at night. i guess i have reactive hypoglycemia.
Can i go full paleo with this condition. Does this eventually pass? I was diagnosed with Anklosing Spondylitis a few years ago. The no starch diet- Paleo seems to work (pains almost gone). Im trying to stay off the Humira.

I used to have this affliction for about 10 years and low carb definitely didn't help. What has helped instead is eating about a cup of basmati rice with each meal that also contains meat and fat. I haven't had an episode in a long time. For what it's worth, the best way to recover from one, in my experience, is to eat one or two apples. Even if you don't have an episode, eating apples here and there to top off liver glycogen helps tremendously. Buy a bunch and keep them in your fridge. They last a really long time this way.
