Feeling weird, bloated and cranky

Hello everyone,

I've been paleo for about 8 months now (I don't do any dairy except butter, no sugar at all, no fruit, no nuts among other things b/c I've struggled with Candida for a while) and in the last month I put on almost 7-8 lbs, I feel sort of sluggish and I have bodyaches, I feel like I'm retaining water and my belly is bloated and I'm super hungry, but really hungry for butter, I just want to eat it plain in chunks... Also, I haven't had my period in months and I've also experienced a boost in sex drive.

On a positive note, I am stronger because I can now do things I couldn't do before, on a negative note, I don't like the way that I feel...

Any suggestions?

Thanx!

C.

also are you taking any suppliments, vitamins, probiotics? have you had yeast/candida issues? i am thinking mine has to do with taking vitamin c lately, as well as oding on probiotics because i was having some candida/gut flora disbiosis, and lots of onions and garlic ! going to back off for a few days and see how that goes, just lean muscle meats, a little root veggies, enough butter or clo, MINIMal grapefruit and maybe some dandelion greens....hope you are feeling better, ill update my tummy trubs super clean eating with just

and do you eat enough fat? even though you gained, you might be eating too little fat.

I'm sure you have already considered it... but any chance you are pregnant?

What are you eating for protein? What is a typical day eating?

I've had days like that. When no one noticed, I didn't mention it. Then, came a new day.
