Me again with more questions.
About a year ago, I fasted for about 10 days (fruit and vegatable juices and water). I lost about 10 - 15 pounds, was exhausted, anxious, and jittery. I slowly gained the weight back over the last year, still feeling the same symptoms and a lot of fatigue. I thought I would start raw to see if that helped (before this past Sunday, the cooked foods I was eating was a cooked sprouted grain in the morning and cooked sprouted beans and cooked sprouted rice at night.) I drink 2 cups of rejuvelac every day, take probiotics, enzymes, and anything else I can do, but nothing seems to help. I was exercising 3 times a week, changed it to 6, back to 3 - nothing is helping. Since I started 100% raw, the symptoms are worse. I plan to stick with this for the 30 days, but this is tough - just getting out of bed in the morning, coming up the stairs, etc. I did not eat much fat for the last 20 years, but have been adding fat this past year to try to help.
I have had liver, thyroid, adrenal, blood sugar, b-12, iron, and many other lab panels done with no outstanding issues.
I also started an incredibly stressful job last year, but am having a hard time thinking that is it and that there is nothing I can do.
