  1. Hi Michelle K, I will be interested to see the response to your post. Today is day 30 for me. I followed all the rules, didn't cheat once, don't feel worse, but don't feel better either.

I'm a pescatarian who eats eggs. I've been off most dairy for months. I did add chicken back into my diet just for the Whole 30. Since I can't have beans and I don't eat soy (oxalates/kidney stones), I would have had to eat either eggs or fish twice a day.
