There was a time when I tried really hard and ended up feeling very lightheaded, dizzy, and nauseous. My priest told me to eat a hamburger or something like that a couple times a week during the fast. He said fasting isn't supposed to bring you to the place of feeling very sick. That's not the point. So, he tells me to do what I can. I can imagine how tough it is for you, reading your story, Katherine.
I'm not hypoglycemic, but I am keeping to a strict low-carb diet and that, along with the Fast , really restricted the food options - meaning almost *no* protein. I did okay until the last week or two, when I started having the same symptoms you described. My priest finally made me eat some things I wouldn't othewise have eaten. But it's good to know how it might affect me during the upcoming Fast, and I'll talk to my priest about what to do about it.

Luckily, in my parish, we have PSL on both Wednesdays and Fridays, and we have soup and bread afterwards on Friday nights.

Aw, I feel your pain. I decided that I am going to skip class on the first and third Wednesdays so that I can go to PSL. I have had this instructor before and I should be able to arrange it.

If you are doing desserts try these:

Tahinopita (A Cypriot Lenten Pie)

They are so delicious.

It'd work but it's a once a week class and I'm skipping one week to go to Jordanville (and I'm really hoping that it's not the mid term week). Although today we were talking with hubby and we're thinking we might delay starting the program til fall. There are some things he'd want me to get done first.

People in my parish bring so much variety and often forget to bring fruit. So, I always bring a bowl full of cantalope, strawberries, and red grapes. Boring, I know. However, it is often pushing it for me to even get that together to bring before liturgy.
