    Getting back on track

    I had some bad news a few days ago and I got off track big time trying to stuff my pain. Drank too much, got into toast jam and regular butter and lots of chocolate almonds. Amazing how sluggish I felt. Sleepy again and not wanting to even take my daily walk. Sugar dragon is in big time and all I do is think about food. I have got to get co trip over myself again so am Re reading book again to see if a week back on program will kick dragon to the curb. So hard when emotional issues pull you down. And the one I have will last for 4 more months until my daughters pregnancy gets good news or not. Ugh
  2. It seems I have reflux or herds which started after I finished whole 30 as I don’t eat any grains but sweet potato and I do eat slot of tomatoes and have lemon on my water daily. I wake up coughing alot and clear my throat a lot. Anyone heard of this happening to them?
  3. Well I CAn reply to my own post. Doctor wasn’t worried because overall I was lower.
  4. I’m a 71 year old woman and did whole 30 5 months ago and still do it more stay every day. I’ve lost 40 lbs
  5. Can anyone explain this: it was lower after first two weeks in program but after 5 months My HDL is 110; my cholesterol is 189 and was 167 after first two weeks on program. My triglyceride is 91 but was at 84 after first two weeks on program. I’m drinking bullet coffee with coconut cream and grass fed butter and coconut oil. Am I eating too much fat; all good; but I make fried chicken in coconut flour and oil and pork rinds as a flake covering. I hate to mess with my foods; but curious about numbers and have to face heart dr who will raise meds as a way to lower cholesterol which I don’t want. Any suggestions?

    Allergy? Or just me

    Thanks Shannon. I had no coconut milk this am: coffee with just the stevia. When I talked on phone no clearing throat. So not ready to say it’s the coconut milk . Am seeing allergist tomorrow. I’m starting whole 30 again in tomorrow’s challenge and will go off stevia then. Not sure how long I should stay on whole 30 to clear out any issues, and hen try reintroduction slower this time. My food issues seems to be maybe too much of nuts and fried compline foods. Up a bit on scales but I’m napping again in afternoon and wasn’t before. Thanks for your advice

    Allergy? Or just me

    I’ve finished whole 30 first time but am noticing that the clearing of my throat as if I have mucous there. Or coughing sometimes to clear throat, has returned . I was aware as a NSV it went away but my friends notice when I talk to them on phone I’m clearing throat again. I do have seasonal allergies but they are contained through shots. But if the throat clearing went away, I think I’ve added something that triggers it. But can’t discover it. I drank bullet coffee almost throughout my 30 days with added almond coconut unsweetened milk or creamer. A bit of stevia leaf I added after 30 days. So I’m signed up to do another 30 with the sept challenge, bit just don’t know how to identify the source of throat learning. I’m having black coffee this a.m. with only a tiny bit of stevia leaf and so far less coughing. Could I be bothered by the coconut milk? But I only have one cup in and the clearing of throat happens all day at times. A real mister they needs solving. I don’t have Gerds as saw doctor. Help

    Lobster and ghee butter

    Thank you Shannon for reminding me about salt etc. I do believe that is the issue as whenever I eat out, I find that out. Also, you are right about what the doctors think I should weigh etc. I'll never been at my wedding weight. Had three children since then. I do love this program and have recommended it to 4 people of which two have done it successfully; other two gave up. BTW how does one become a coach for this program? I love sharing how successful I have been.

    Lobster and ghee butter

    Good morning— so for first time I had fresh lobster with lemon and drawn butter. I was amazed by all the richness of this food that I had no stomach pain. So happy for that but was up on the scales a bit this am. I know— no scales— but I’ve finished whole 30 and have been maintaining for several months and I do weigh after new foods are introduced. I’m not stressed by this but the extra benefit of whole 30 has been the weight loss— 37 lbs since feb. my heart doctor is over the moon and all my blood work say I’m perfect— even eating butter. I know lobster is ok to eat, but I had two and only a fruit bowl for dessert. Is eating a lot of ghee not good for me? Can it cause weight gain?

    Lobster

    Lobster is a very rich fatty fish and with drawn butter, ghee, could be even richer. Can you eat this on whole 30

    Ghee butter

    After whole 30 is over is it necessary to continue with ghee. I’m not sure what the chemical makeup is in ghee verses regular unsalted grass fed butter. Both are high in fat? Can someone explain?
  15. I never thought too much fruit, I.e. watermelon could wake my sugar dragon but it did. Anyone else experience this? I had 3 cups of watermelon after my lunch the other day and I took a 2 hour nap. Just couldn’t wake up and felt sluggish and no energy. I love this program as it teaches me what happens when I eat stuff. I did a three day reset watching my fruit and changing it to strawberries and other berries and only a cup a day, not per meal. Woke today feeling great again.
