When making any kind of transition that eliminates something from your diet entirely, you can expect some withdrawal symptoms.

I strongly recommend writing down what you're eating and setting a clock so that you put two or three bits of something in your mouth every two hours for a while.

Making a change like this needs to be intentional, not haram-scaram.

Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take a boat in the air that you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turn of the world. Love keeps her in the air when she ought to fall down. Tells you she's hurting before she keens. Makes her a home.

I hope you figure it out and feel better. I have heard that some people don't feel great for a couple of weeks as they make the transition to a meatless diet.

I just wanted to point out that milk has some protein, but it is a lot of carbs. Unless you make the granola yourself with healthy fats and little sweetener, or can find a brand like that, it is also a lot of straight sugar carbs that could send you for a sugar crash after eating.

Can you eat more beans as a protein source? Beans are very good for stabilizing blood sugar, if that is an issue. I have found fats like nuts and seeds with meals usually keep me feeling fuller longer than oils or cheese, and I don't have that jittery "I have to eat" feeling an hour or two later.

I'm so sorry you are feeling so badly.

Are you eating a big enough portion when you do eat?

I'm definitely eating enough. I thought it was the no meat thing, but I ate meat and I don't feel any better, so I'm back to veg. Going to the doctor today.

Thyroid and iron are good. I'm just a little bit hypoglycemic, which explains the shaky. They think the dizzy is totally unrelated. Something about my eustacian tubes. So I'm really relieved this is not all diet related. I still need to work on the snacking, though.

Could an increase in dairy be causing ear stuffiness

Do you feel faint or fuzzy headed?

Default Re: Why am I so shaky?

I did. I got a steroid shot and nasal spray and allergy medicine and I feel quite a bit better. I didn't think about the increase in dairy causing it. AFA the hypoglycemia, I think I'm going to need to make a list of snacks and set a timer to remind myself to eat or something.
