I have been gluten-free for almost two years - great results (my weight is steady, skin cleared up, migraines stopped, gas/bloating stopped, etc). I was still having some symptoms that drove me nuts...brain fog, oily face, dandruff, moody...so I went mostly grain/sugar free as well. That definitely helps - much harder to stick to since I'm a snacker. When I behave myself, I eat eggs for breakfast, protein/veggie for lunch and then larger portion of protein/veggie for dinner. My problem is snacking - I have been very hungry lately and have been getting dizzy and lightheaded (been wondering if I have a blood sugar problem - has always been borderline low since teen years). I've been snacking on cheese as a protein source. However, now my sinuses are acting up, I've had a constant headache for two weeks that sometimes gets unbearable (back of head at the base of skull), and I'm nauseous quite a bit. Don't know what's going on and I'm afraid it's the dairy. I was eating greek yogurt for breakfast again because I got bored with eggs...I've cut that out again, but don't know what to do about snacks. Besides nuts, what can I have that doesn't contain grains/sugar? I don't want to lose dairy forever, so I'm hoping that giving it up for a short time will allow me to keep it in moderation later. Thanks everybody!

I've gotten addicted to the fried peas from nuts.com -- they satisfy my need for a crunchy snack when I'm sick of raw veggies. Fried edamame works along the same lines.

Hummus, nut butters, tuna salad, chicken salad or lettuce wraps with a couple of slices of ham/turkey or any other lunch meat with roasted red peppers, onions and a little cilantro mayo. Just a few suggestions that I ate when I was doing South beach.

When you say sugar free - do you eat fruit, agave, honey? There are many Paleo recipes for muffins made with coconut or almond flour. I use bananas, apples or pumpkin in mine with a small amount of agave.

For small snacks I tote along a piece of chicken, hard boiled eggs, banana, apple slices, small container of almond butter, slightly blanched asparagus or carrots (I don't like them raw) or paleo muffins.

Yup, sounds like dairy. I had the same symptoms (sinus and balance issues) and they mostly cleared up after cutting out dairy. For me the problem is casein. I can't eat goat or sheep's milk either.

Non-dairy/grain-free snacks do sound tricky, but yeah, nuts, some fruit maybe? (those lettuce and chicken wraps sound tasty!) yeah, are fruit sugars and honey ok?

Also, Almond milk is a great substitute for most things. Not so easy in cooking, but great in coffee, etc.

good luck!

I don't necessarily have a snack suggestion, except maybe rice cakes with butter, which is my only snack food recently. Not grain free though....

I did want to suggest that it's possible the issue you're having may not be dairy per se, but it may be the additives to the yogurt. Since I'm sensitive to a lot of additives, the only yogurt I could find without them is plain yogurt, to which I've been adding homemade applesauce. I don't eat it frequently, however, and in order to just test it I had to buy a large container since it's all they had that didn't have the other stuff. The additives I wanted to avoid, in the case of yogurt, is 'natural flavors' and carageenan.

Just so you can be on the look out if or when you re-test dairy after a while.

    • Are doctors even getting close to diagnosing the actual number of cases of celiac disease? Or are they missing the vast majority? Researchers have said for some time that there are far more people with celiac disease than are being diagnosed, and that the vast majority of case go undiagnosed. If a new study by Canadian nutrition researchers is any indication, most cases of celiac disease remain undiagnosed. View the full article
    • Thanks for your input, everyone!  I will get tested soon enough for this condition, and I will definitely update you all when the results finally come in.
    • Have you had a sleep study? I have severe sleep apnea and used to sleep 12 hours a night and still was exhausted. Falling asleep at a stoplight exhausted. I do not fit the typical male and overweight stereotype either! But my cpap keeps me more well rested and alive. A sleep study is easy and it's the cost of an office copay. 
    • Have you ruled out the common Keratosis Pilaris (KP) also know as chicken skin?   https://www.aad.org/public/diseases/bumps-and-growths/keratosis-pilaris
    • Squirmingitch brought up the macaroon idea, I find Zsweet, and Swerve Sugar Free sweeteners do not throw me out of keto and I use them to make my "treats" You might sub it in these if your like that idea. I personally just use coconut and almond meal in my baked goods with high fat nuts like walnuts and pecans (Walnuts and pecans have so much oil in them you can butter then in a blender or food processes into a pour able sauce that can be used as a dressing or mixed with eggs and coconut flour into a dough)

      Also brought up batch beans....bad idea for keto, but to integrate a keto version, try cooking a roast in a crock pot, or a whole bunch of chicken breast. You can eat on it for a week just serve it over greens. Or Miracle Rice (zero carb rice) Batch cooking will become a life saver. (works with some foods) and meal preps give you time to just grab a pre fixed meal out of the fridge and go if you need to do something later in the day. First year I was gluten free I did this daily for myself before meat became a issue (I look forward to doing it again).
        CB brings up the issue of selenium and melotonin. YES this is a huge thing and completely evaded my thoughts. I consume massive amounts of seeds, like pumpkin, sancha inchi, hemp all high in these in addition to flax and chia. I tend to rotate my seeds to prevent intolerance issues and only the roasted ones. Look up GERBS allergen friendly foods for pumpkin, hemp, flax, and chia.  I suggest the ground flax under meals as the seeds I notice have issues, I personally always have to cook my chia, and flax seeds into egg dishes or I can not eat them. If you blend them in with the eggs  1-2tbsp seed meal to 1 1/2 cups eggs -1/2 cup almond milk 2tbsp coconut flour and some almond butter and stevia to taste let it set up 5-10mins then blend again you have a batter for pancakes/waffles/doughnuts/breading batter. >.> something like this I whim it as a chef.

      I was thinking of another think I like to snack on. Rythem Super foods roasted kale and the kale chips in moderation. I also crush the kale chips up and sprinkle over eggs as a condiment, Adds plenty of vitamins and the ranch flavor for this is amazing.
