  1. Hi Everyone! I'm on Day 5 and optimistic. I've noticed the beginnings of many positive things. One question: is it normal for sleep to get worse before it gets better? I've never been a great sleeper anyway but am wondering if people noticed worse sleep during the initial detox/healing days and then later on saw it improve. THANKS!
  2. I take fermented cod liver/butter oil blend, a probiotic, a prenatal vitamin and vitamin D (I'm nursing), vitamin C, and a b-vitamin complex, and a progesterone only birth control pill.
  3. Breakfast is usually: 1-2 cups of veggies (onions, mushrooms, spinach, tomatoes, jalapenos, cilantro) scrambled with 3 organic, pastured eggs. Lunch: browned grassfed beef + a big salad (mixed greens, raw mushrooms, avocado, tomatoes, black olives, carrots, onions) with olive oil and a dash of lemon juice or pure balsamic vinegar. (Meat may vary: roasted chicken, shredded pork, tuna - always without any sauce or added items) Supper: Baked salmon with fresh green beans and roasted winter vegetables. (Or a grassfed steak with sauteed mushrooms + squash and roasted broccoli). Sometimes a banana or apple and some coconut flakes for a snack. Once and a while a few nuts. Thanks!!
  4. I have been paleo-ish for about two years and am now on day 27 of my first whole30 and overall am feeling great. I've been eating very strictly. I have eaten out a few times but have asked a billion questions, boiled options down, and gone with sauceless meat and veggies each time. I'm drinking a decent amount of kombucha and taking a probiotic most mornings. I am regular with bowel movements but am still experiencing very loose, dark stools in the mornings. I'm also experiencing some gas still in the evenings. I'm interested in resolving this so that my waste is what it should be!! I haven't really had super irritable bowel issues, just these. Could it be trace amounts of ingredients from eating out? Could it be something still included in my diet? Could it just need more time? Any ideas?
  5. I too lost my appetite at that point (also very unusual for me as I'd been on Paleo for awhile) - it's slowly coming back. I kind of enjoyed it, actually!
  6. I'm on day 15 and am feeling great, have definitely lost inches and overall am doing well. However, I've always suffered from nasal congestion (didn't even really realize there was another option). At the beginning of my Whole 30 I was congested, then runny nose, now congested again. Questions: 1) How long does it take for congestion due to dairy to clear up? 2) What in the Whole30 might cause it if it's not the regular culprits? (eggs? nuts?) 3) Can Neti pot be helpful at this stage? Clear out remnants? Or is that only for ongoing? Any other thoughts welcome, too! THANKS!!!
