janiec: one thing i come to think of is: how long did you eat like this? The less extreme (but still to low carb or some other fault) the longer it takes to get really sick.
I myself have a strong body from scratch. I did not even lose my cycle from anorexia with BMI at 12. At 39 I got another anorexic relapse, bu tnow eating lowcarb high fat. I succeeded to stick to BMI 12 for several years, and lost cycle this time. I did not go really tired, until I went on GAPS and then Paleo. Now I am totally worn out. Me, that felt so great on lowcarb, GAPS and paleo at first. First I got better from these kind of diets, then worse. I did know lowcarb was not for me (ketogenic lowcarb) but lowcarb “light” was fine, and GAPS felt super – at first.
If you feel good, great. If you have eaten like this just for some year, watch out for signs of it beeing wrong. Like constipation, diorrhea, tiredness, bloating or others if “cheating”.
Maybe temperature doesn’t mean everything. Also, low temp can be due to low progesterone I’ve heard. But do not take my word, google and research.
It sure is hard to navigate in this paleo, lowcarb and hypothyreos hype…
