    Weird one!

    I'm gone from feeling really well last week and now feel awful. Partly because I have this possible
    Diagnosis which scares me but the have been thinking and my eating has changed as I have gone back to work.

    I realised I haven't had eggs for two days! Does anyone have a feeling of exhaustion if they miss their protein breakfast.

    Today I had three spoons of yoghurt and some sliced turkey.

    Then a coconut milk yoghurt and then salmon and salad.

    Followed by a Greek salad with feta cheese.

    Any thoughts on this days intake?

    Many thanks Emma.

    Exhaustion Seems to come late morning and late afternoon. Xx

    I think you are having carb withdrawal a little.
    You have to persevere with the low carb.
    You are a bit stressful going back to work.
    Your intake is fine, no worries there!
    Your body is adjusting to low carb.
    Your awareness is quite good though!
    You've got the weekend now to relax if you can!!

    How does fat have repercussions on the syndrome?
