I know someone mentioned anemia and that's a possibility but what you described would be a typical hypoglycemic crash for me. Add to that shakiness and breaking out in a dripping sweat and there you go.
Every has given you great advice and I'm just going along with it. I cannot function without more protein than most people. I've also been more careful about adding extra dietary fats lately to cotrol blood sugar and lose weight. I feel much better this way too. It does entail planning though. I eat 3 meals and small snacks throughout the day to avoid crashing.
I have 3 scrambled eggs at breakfast with onion and tomato and now I'm eating cheese and grapes for a snack. I need to eat something almost every hour. If I can get in that extra fat, I can go longer. Like the others have said I rely heavily on meats, eggs and nuts. I would try to never go out like you did on all carbs plus I try to have something in my purse to fall back on, a Lara bar or nuts.
I know you said you cannot tolerate some of the foods I eat but I'm showing you my diet so you can get and idea of how much protein you need to look for. You must have that balance or you will continue to have those crashes. Also if you are very hungry, indulge it with safe food. Your body is telling you it needs more nutrients right now. Later that constant hunger may pass but for now, listen to your body and give it what it needs.
