    Catwhisperer got a reaction from praxisproject in how are diabetics doing on the Whole 30?   
    I'm diabetic and on Day 11.  I'm feeling great.  My fasting BS is between 95 and 110.  My doctor is going to be thrilled.  I have a lot more energy today than I have so far.  In fact, I've been cleaning my kitchen.  So far so good.  Although, even though I've been gluten-free for years, I would gladly kill for a pancake; and think the paleo version prohibition is a bit arbitrary.  That's my craving speaking, so feel free to ignore it.

    How it's made is very important, some Kombucha is not compliant.
    Sugar must not be added to the second ferment.

    The first ferment eats the sugar.
    There's a few threads on Whole30 Kombucha  I buy mine, so not sure if there's any changes to the recipe, but loads of folks here will know the answer.

    You got this Catwhisperer! Going dairy free may make a huge difference. You can still get dairy-free fermented goodness through kombucha, homemade coconut yoghurt (dairy free) and cultured veggies

    Thought I restart this thread.  Today is Day 1 for me, of what I'm going to attempt to be a Whole 100.  why 100?  Because I feel like I'm a mess, and that it will take a long time to reverse some of my issues.  I, too, am gluten intolerant and have Fibromyalgia as well as Depression, Hypertension, Hypothyroid and Type II Diabetes.  I'm also around 70 or so lbs overweight.  I am doing this because, well, I can't stand my life anymore.  The pain and fatigue of Fibro is the worst, though.  It's making me more and more housebound, and I'm no longer having any of it.  I heard about Whole30 from a friend who has lost all of her symptoms and just ran her 3rd or 4th 5K.  
     
    I went off Wheat and Corn awhile ago, and symptoms improved drastically.  Also cut out dairy (except for yogurt, kefir and aged cheese made from raw non-cow milk).  I felt really good, but not 100%  I kept off the Wheat/Gluten, but added back the occasional corn.  I *know* for a fact, that anything made with corn meal causes a flare-up and have long suspected that dairy is a big culprit too.  
     
    Wish me luck.
