  1. You look great - and it sounds like you're stoked to go! Thank you for sharing your story with us. My story is different to yours, but I felt some strong commonalities. Living with chronic pain is something most people don't understand (not yet, at least — I suspect as we age, more people begin to comprehend). Pushing ourselves too hard and basically zapping our nervous systems? Sounds like you have done that, too. I hope W30 is helpful for you. I'm still trying to figure out these forums, but come find me if you want to cheer me on! I'm starting Tuesday. I hope yours continues to go wond
  2. Jennifer - you asked when my start date is. Not sure! I'm revved up and hoping to bring a friend along for her first W30. If she ends up hesitating, I may move forward any ol' day now.
  3. I'm so interested to hear someone mentioning oatstraw here -- I got a bit obsessed with it about a year ago. I put on an event called Tea & Poetry at the local farmers market, and we had a station where people could mix their own taisans (a.k.a. herbal teas, to take home and make teas, infusions, or decoctions).

Though I do some coaching, it is not health coaching, so please don't take my post as professional nutrition advice! That said: if the Whole30 helped you notice nightshades, that's a great thing. If I were in your position, I'd turn this into a Whole60 or at least a Whole45, and eliminate the nightshades, too. Shannon suggests something similar. Then do the reintroductions—slowly, and not starting with nightshades. Reintroduce lentils, wait three days, etc. Do
  5. Poor bunny! I'm glad you found something that works for you. Hop, hop, hop. I too ride the chronic illness rollercoaster. Whole30 has been marvelous for it. I usually do my own "modified paleo" semi-Whole30. But this year—partly because of some heart issues and high cholesterol, partly because of, oh let's say COVID! — I slid way off track. Hm, maybe I should make a separate post about that? Anyway! I hear ya, sister. I hope yours goes well, as I gear up for mine...
