I might know what you mean about the dehydration issues. I tend to notice that I get "tired" around my eyes first, and then it starts to spread to my entire body sort of like I am dehydrated, although I am not. I then will get a little tired shortly afterwards. I haven't pinpointed what causes this, but it happens frequently.
I always wonder if I am starting to overanalyze everything. I never had even gone to a doctor in my entire life for any issues up until the last year and a half. However, I believe I've made a ton of progress. At first I thought things might be caused by stress, but food is definitely a huge problem for me. I'm currently going through more stress than I have in a very long time, but I feel 10x better than I did just a year ago with changes made by recommendations on this board.
Now, if I could just figure out this weight issue. If I eat food I feel good with, I seem to gain a lot more weight than food that I do not feel good with. With a year and a half worth of records, there is definitely something going on. I guess it just means I should stick with good food.
i agree...i feel tons better too just with learning about SF and how i should be eating..but it's still so hard b/c i was one of those people that could eat cupcakes for breakfast and coke and coffee..etc...i never even thought about tummy issues..it was non existent...i was so jealous of a girl at work today..she was going to get some ensure to gain weight..i was thinking "man..wish it was that easy"..she doesn't have ibs..lucky girl!..
