I really need to get my eating and budget under control. I've tried Primal several times, but after 2-3 weeks my depression and anxiety spike, especially when I'm low carb. Eating a lot of starchy tubers seems to help, but that can be expensive if they aren't white potatoes. This depression/anxiety spike always ends up with me eating junk/fast food and doing worse than before. It also seems to coincide with my cycle.
I would also like to lose some weight, so I'm afraid the higher carb diet won't help me with that.
Conflictingly, my husband has Type 1 diabetes. He does very well on a nearly no-carb diet. It would be his preferred way of eating, and his blood sugar levels do stupendously. He even gets to the point where he doesn't have to take any insulin for meals, just his basal throughout the day.
I'm working though adrenal fatigue and depression and I always thought that being low carb Primal was the best for that. But with the reoccurring depression/anxiety issues it seems it might not be. It's certainly not the best for my pocket book.
Does anyone think a WAPF-type diet work well in our circumstance? Soaked grains and legumes would be sooooo much cheaper.
Dang, this seems very scattered. I hope it's making sense enough that I can get some advice. Thank you for reading this.
