ZC: Day 5

All right! Five days of zero carb under my belt. 

Today was kind of a mixed bag. I finally had some cravings, but they weren't too bad. I didn't really want to eat the foods I was craving. I just sort of missed them.

My energy level was pretty low but I didn't have even a hint of vision loss or dizziness today. Best of all, there was no brain fog. I did have more shortness of breath than yesterday and it struck hardest whenever I was very thirsty. This seems to support my suspicion that excess insulin drives the POTS symptoms I experience. 

Following thirst and hunger, I drank about 150 ounces of water (that's a crazy lot--almost ten pounds of water!) and ate about 1900 calories. Today's meals included cream, eggs, cheese, beef, ham, and butter.

Reading Wednesday's post on Whole Health Source made me curious about the first book quoted. Happily, The Saccharine Disease by T. L. Cleave is available to read online
