Hi Folks! I am doing my 7th Whole30. Each time I learn something new during the re-introduction phase. We do the reset quarterly.
I started the whole30 journey a year and a half ago with the first one completed April 2017. My husband and I do this together. His doctor suggested it at the same time my dietitian suggested it. I was suffering from anxiety, headaches, nausea, and extreme fatigue (that my primary doctor called normal for me).
For me, my symptoms were because of certain foods that I was eating and the whole30 proved to me that I could feel good! And how I was feeling was not normal (which I knew). I also found that I cannot eat almond flour, cauliflower or coconut milk.
I have lots some weight and inches but that is not why I am doing this. I want to feel good consistently! Looking better is a bonus!
I do the slow slide (food freedom forever book triggers) back to feeling yucky between resets. Eat something I know will cause issues because it is super yummy. Feel okay. Repeat, until I hit a wall and end up exhausted headache anxiety. But I am getting better and making better choices more often.
I love this forum and try to join a group each time for support!
