What the hell!

I've been doing really really well the past 8 weeks and have been very happy and (relatively) healthy on my diet of rice, peas, apples, pears, chicken, and fish. I will occasionally have a few vegetables too like asparagus and spinach, and I have lots of limes and lemon juice every day.

Then suddenly last week I crashed. I've been barely able to keep my eyes open and they burn and i just want to sleep. Sleeping doesn't help. I wake up feeling like I haven't slept yet. At first I thought I was reacting to something and becoming intolerant to rice. But I think my body "ran out" of some vital nutrient or mineral or enzyme. I don't know. My usual supplements and such are having no effect, good or bad. I have no motivation to do anything, and almost don't care!

I've also known that there are bottlenecks in my detox pathways and that something is lacking. But it just occurred to me that one of the pieces of the puzzle must be something I am biosynthesizing because if I sit long enough, I start feeling better, but a brief exposure to a toxin will put me back at square one. I'm thinking it is amino acid related. I think the key is figuring out why I am not metabolizing lipids. For some reason I tolerate non-seed based plant fats better like peanut butter and avocado (I think, not sure, I just tried some and so far so good), but not animal based fats. geee..... this kinda reminds me of a few years ago when just 6 grams of sugar would give me a diabetic blood sugar spike! so.... now i just gotta figure out which thing i'm not making.

Great news though.... I seem to tolerate venison no problem (its farm raised!..... totally weird) But YAY! No more chicken and fish every day!
