I started low carbing last week and initially felt such huge changes in my body - so much energy I felt like I was on some drug or something, so much happier, and my skin started clearing up also. I also just didn't even feel hungry - VERY foreign for me! And I could just feel my body... functioning better, if that makes sense.
Now after 5 days my skin (acne) is starting to get a bit worse again, and my mood is going down and I am irritable and cranky again. Though nowhere NEAR as bad as last cycle when I would cry, yell, and break down at almost everything and was just so depressed it was scary.
I am pretty sure I have PCOS, and am due for my period within the next few days. Is it because of my PMS that things have gone back a little (particulary the acne!), or could I be doing something wrong with my diet? I am not counting my carbs, but I eat eggs with chicken, some avocado (less than half), mozzarella cheese, and salt and linseed for bfast, then I eat lots of meat/fish for lunch and dinner with either some spinach, broccoli, zucchini, capsicum and pumpkin (small amounts)
I tend to snack a bit on brie cheese and mozzarella, and lite jelly - maybe too much? And also that "Well, naturally" dark chocolate. My sugar cravings are intensifying now, and so far have not lost a plethora of weight, but am only needing to lose about 4-5kg.
