Lauraco reacted to Gwenn in Hang In There if you have chronic illness
I suffer from both severe GERD (I’m not really overweight) and overlapping autoimmune diseases. I haven’t felt well in years. I did my 30 days and I have to say, I may have felt better but not great. I slept better for sure and I lost a few pounds which didn’t hurt but I wouldn’t say I felt WELL. I’m 7 days into reintro but I pretty much eat Whole 30 anyway because I like it. Only difference is I don’t go too crazy if there is a small amount of natural sweetener in something. I did try a little milk in my tea but it tasted gross so I didn’t reintroduce dairy. The reason I’m posting is that today I woke up and NOW I GET WHAT TIGER BLOOD IS. I did read it sometimes takes longer if there is chronic illness but man I am glad I stuck to it another week. Just in case you are discouraged!

Felt much better today! Overslept and had to improvise a bit with breakfast - did ok but was hungry by 11:30, and hungry again in the afternoon. The constant need for food prep and planning feels overwhelming at times, and I say that as someone who likes to cook. I have been feeling really good in my workouts, not sure yet whether to attribute that to W30 or just to getting back in my routine after vacation.
