    I had candida and got rid of it with the help of a dr. Of integrative medicine. It too 3 months of STRICT no fruit of any kind as well as no sugar or sugary veggies like carrots and beets. I also took some supplements and have the guide my dr gave me; if you’d like it I can send via email, just let me know. It was HARD, much harder than Whole30, but it worked. [email protected]

    How’s everyone doing today? This group has been a great support for me. I check here everyday for the camaraderie. I’m amazed and thrilled to be on Day 15! I know I can finish this now. I was a little worried on days 4-10....

    A great drink for me on this diet is Grapefruit juice and club soda with a slice of lime.

    I did, terrible joint pain around days 9-12. It’s gone now, and I’d like to think it’s the diet, but I also changed my glucosamine supplement around that time; same dose just different formulation with vitamin D,etc. thoughts?

    I just noticed that I said practically the same thing as kristilarsen before I read her response!

    I found myself feeling the same way! It’s wonderful to have lost the constant hunger pangs, but now I feel like I have to make sure that I eat. Amazing.

    kristilarson, I'm so sorry to hear of all you've been going through. Kuddos to you for embracing health and doing this difficult but healing 30 days. I'm cheering for you!

    Except I’m hurting. The last couple of days I have had dull constant pain in my hips, stiffness, and general aches and pains all over: the stuff I’m hoping to get over. Normal light exercise and stretches leave me sore. Could this be an effect of toxins being released? Unrelated?

    Day 8 has dawned and I feel much better in terms of less hunger and fewer cravings. Still struggling a little with not being able to enjoy a beer or glass of wine with my friends, but I’m committed and know it’ll be worth the short term sacrifice. Saturday I shopped the Farmers Market and last night made dinner for my sweetie. I grilled organic, free range chicken thighs along with a spaghetti squash. While they were cooking I sliced a fresh tomato and made pesto without cheese. After I shredded the spaghetti squash into a bowl I added the pesto and it was REALLY GOOD. Here’s my pesto recipe: 1/3 cup lightly toasted walnut halves 2 cups (packed) fresh basil leaves generous amount of salt and freshly ground black pepper 3 cloves fresh garlic Approximately 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil, more or less to get proper consistency -place all ingredients except Olive oil into food processor and pulse/grind until everything is the size of coarse corn meal. Open feed and drizzle olive oil in while processing until pesto is the desired consistency (I like mine to be like a thin paste.) thats it! Super tasty and can be used as a dip, a topping, or a sauce

    Yoga is helping me tremendously with stress relief, especially “stretch and restore” and yin yoga. The longer poses allow time for meditation and connecting with your breath, all while restoring mobility and healthy movement to your body.

    I started my first Whole30 on Monday, July 7, but just now found this group. I am doing Whole30 because I want to reduce inflammation in my body that is causing me aches and pains in my joints, and stiffness that I want to think I’m too young for (I’m 61). Because I REALLY want to be able to test foods during Reintroduction, I’m pretty motivated to stick to the rules. But I could really use some support and am excited to find this group. The cravings hit me really hard yesterday, and I’ve wanted to be on the couch for two days now. I’m so tired, but I’m sleeping well at night. I’m hoping I’ll have more energy soon.
