Paleo Side Effects??

Commented on February 03, 2014

I have been strictly Paleo for at least

30 days now. The past two weeks, I have noticed some weird effects to my skin and body. Rash developing around my belly button and on my arm. Sphincter irritated and very itchy. And my newest symptom: one eyelid is itchy inflammed and skin on lid seems VERY dry and scaly. Woke up with both eyes somewhat swollen. I have been taking care of my skin and drinking tons of water. Other than that I have been feeling really good! Before starting the diet, I didn't have any of these skin problems. Any idea why this is happening. It's making me want to go back to my normal diet, but I love how much better Paleo makes me feel.

What have you eliminated? Run it through paleotrack or cronometer and see if you are now missing certain vit/minerals that you need to add back with other foods or supplements.

What new foods have you introduced into your diet? That may hold the answer to allergy or intolerance.
