The low carb diet did not agree with us. We were diligent for four weeks on the diet. But in those four weeks my husband passed out three times at work. He ended up in the ER, luckily he works in the hospital so it wasn’t a long trip for him. They did all sorts of tests and they could not determine what caused him to pass out.
His blood pressure is out-of-control most likely due to the increased sodium in his diet. It is much better. Is that we went back to eating carbs.
My blood pressure was elevated on a few days, but it was not high enough for medical treatment. So there you go, we are officially low carb diet failures.
We have continued to drink sugar free soda and limit our carb intake. We do eat sweets again that’s not always a good thing but, it is what it is.
When we get back from our trip to Alaska which will be around mid June then we will pursue a better way of eating. We’ve had luck with Weight Watchers so I think we will hop on that bandwagon and just stick to that.
Now I have a surplus of low-sodium Vlasic pickles. Those were my go to snack when I was eating low carb. I think I have eight jars left.
