The reason you feel bad upon elimination of food, may be detox or withdrawal, not not enough calories at all..just read an article by mark hyman and posted here about it. also, you must stop cross reactive foods like corn, rice, oats..all grains. Some say quinoa is ok, some don't or millet. Don't even count calories..just eat when hungry, but good foods.
I have made fried fish with arrowroot starch and it was wonderful! Ships, if potato are out, but you can eat plantain chips..i have just learned all of this new ways of cooking..all AIP..
