  • I always quit eating and go to bed when I feel this way too. I wonder what causes this. Its so strange!

  • When I was preg. I often would get dizzy or light headed if what I ate didn't have enough protein in it. A lot of sugar and high carb foods would do this too. I got to the point that every morning I would make myself a sausage, egg, and cheese biscuit or bagel and after that I started feeling better.

  • I do as well. Only in the morning though. After i sleep for a certain amount of time without eating. I have changed my diet to only protein when i wake up and then wait a few hours for carbs or anything else. I helped so much. I asked one of the OB's in the office and he said its between blood pressure and blood sugar trying to regulate. I have low BP and never had an issue with blood sugar but again protein has made it practically nonexsistant. Is it only a certain time of day or every single time you eat?
