    Hi Maura, I started on the 1st but I've been having the same allergy issues too! The last year has been just puffy allergy eyes and eczema that is worse than anything I've experienced. I live in Kathmandu so I have just assumed that it's the water/dust/air pollution/unfamiliar plants but maybe it's diet related as well. Anyway, to echo Bre, congrats on your upcoming wedding and I hope Whole30 clears this up for you. 
    I will say: I'm currently on Day 5 and my eczema has decreased from last week for sure, but it's possible that's a coincidence. But maybe not....
    Anyway, I'm with you and Bre! Lets do this

    Congrats on your wedding! Boo on allergies, hope this helps!! 
    I am starting Monday 9 July too and also love cheese & bread! I eat it more than anything else! I am not so good with the cooking, love to watch others cook, so I am hoping to develop a personal love for cooking! 
    Let's try to keep each other on track!!
    Bre :)

    Hey there! 
    My name is Maura Beaver and I am starting on Monday, July 9th! This will be my first round of Whole30, and this type of program is so new to me. Recently, I have gained a decent bit of weight and I have been having some major allergy issues. I wake up with puffy eyes and lips and I'm breaking out in hives and eczema. We have tried patch testing at the allergist and concluded I'm at least allergic to nickel and gold. I feel like that's not the only issue because I haven't seen much of a change for the better. Now I'm considering the idea it might be food related. 
    Also, let it be known I'm getting married at the end of October and would really like to get this taken care of! If you have any thoughts relating to the allergy topic or just some words of advice about the program, I would love to hear them. I LOVE to cook, so I don't think that will be hard to get used to. I do love cheese and bread - that will be hard to get used to...
    Thanks in advance, and I hope the program is going well for all of you!
