I have been doing well on the plant based eating habits so far. However, I have to modify the menues so that they're low in carbs including the whole grain kind.
I have ADHD(Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder) whenever I eat starches or grain items I don't get energized at all... Instead I crash: My mind becomes foggy, my concentration decreases further, I feel weak and my hand-eye coordination suffers. It doesn't take a lot to make me this way, 2 slices of whole grain bread of one sandwich will do it!
Through trial and error I find that I function better when I get higher amounts of protein(lowcarb veggie sources of course) and getting a little Essential Fatty Acids from capsules. I take borage oil softgel caps 1 or 2 when I eat which is only a couple times a day.
I have always had this problem. Got my fasting blood sugar tested 3 months ago, it's in normal range. Infact all of my blood work is great. My weight is also in healthy range.
