Dutchie, The Real Amy, thank you both for your responses :)
@Dutchie: hadn’t heard about cross-reactions before – thanks for enlightening me. Have done a little reading, and am now possibly even more confused…! A lot of people seem to suggest that this means excluding both the trigger food AND the cross-reacting ones. Is that the only way out of this?
@The Real Amy: I’ve had a bit of trouble finding out whether coconut products are sufficiently ‘warming’. I used to go through a LOT of coconut products (milk, cream, oil/butter) pre-ETF/EFH/RRARF, but I’m not sure whether they were contributing to low temps… It’ll definitely be hard keeping calories up without dairy, you’re right. I can see myself getting very sick of potatoes.
@Linda, yeah, the lack of consistent sleep does tend to cause more stress… and less sleep. Perfect : / I’ve found yoga and meditation help sometimes, but my practice of preference is Bikram, which requires a good 2-3 litres of water ingested throughout the day. Haven’t figured out how I’m going to work through that, or whether to transition into a less fluid-intensive style.
Oddly enough, when I did Whole30 about 18 months ago, I found I slept really well, too. Sugar seemed to be the lowest common denominator at the time. There’s no way in hell I want to go paleo again; it drove me absolutely mental with all the restrictions (and I’m not a fan of red meat or eggs). What’s a girl to do?
