I think the value of doing a Whole30 is to begin seeing meat, fish, eggs, veggies, and fruit as the good stuff and to start thinking of everything else as stuff we have to make do with occasionally.

For lack of a better explanation, I have decided it's the weather. We have had a very warm and humid winter, and whether it's the pollen or low pressure, I've struggled. I drink lots of water and haven't been hungry at all (and have not experienced one single craving), so I don't know what else to think.
If someone has a better explanation I'd love to hear it.

http://www.mayoclini...ECTION=symptoms (look at new daily persistent headache, hemicrania continua, etc.). i would see a doctor just to rule out anything (but they might say oh, you just changed your diet??) is it constant or are three things that kind of "trigger" it?
some doctors also recommend a low fodmaps diet (cutting out tomato, eggplant, etc.)...

Lately, my face has been bothering me too. It will get tingly and feel tight (hard to explain) I thought it was my make-up which was organic, but after researching it more found out it has soy in it among other things. I stopped using it yesterday and it seemed better but today after right lunch (Apple turkey burgers (chopped apples, ground turkey some spices), sweet potato with coconut butter, raw cucumbers and carrots) it started to feel tingly and tight again. Could this be an allergy to something I'm eating?
In addition, I probably have IBS. I went to a GI a long time ago and that is what he said (I was pretty young though and he didn't do any real testing) and it also runs in my family. I've been trying to avoid some of the things they say not to eat with IBS, though it is hard as I feel so limited. I didn't know if it could be the coconut? I really hope not as I like it a lot. I don't know if anyone has any ideas for me, but I'm so frustrated. I was really hoping to be feeling better at this point. My GI symptoms almost completely went away from the start, but these headaches just wont stop. The idea of giving up more things just makes me feel like crying as I feel so limited without eggs, tomatoes, peppers and all the other irritating foods. I'm already getting kind of bored with food even though I make something new for dinner each day. My family of 5 is all trying this together, so it is a lot of cooking for each meal and I'm doing things in batches so we have enough which means we eat a lot of the same breakfasts and lunches. Sorry for rambling on, it has been an emotional day and I just feel so frustrated lately. I think I just thought if I was eating healthier I would feel so much better. I know it is still kind of early in my Whole 30, but franlkly right now I'm not even sure I will continue to eat this way when my 30 (or probably 45-60) days are up unless I start to see some real improvements.
