  1. I was mostly paleo before I started the Whole30 and mostly cutting off dairy and sugar this time around. I didn't have the carb flu reactions like most people talk about. And I didn't have that much sugar before hand so not that bad of headaches and really easy out of the gate. I am SO FRUSTRATED though because I have been sick twice so far on my Whole30! It starts with a tickle at the back of the throat that turns into a weird sinus thing with my ears draining or something. Then it's like the stuff at the back of my throat decides to start floating out and I get a case of the sniffles and my nose is draining NON STOP. I keep sneezing a lot too. My nose is raw from all the tissues right now. TWICE this happened to me. The first time was at the beginning of my Whole30 and also was coordinated with my monthly cycle and now it's towards the end and same thing.. monthly cycle comes in like a punch to the stomach and then SICK instantly as well. Does anyone know what is going on? I NEVER got sick before this. I usually eat really healthy with salads and mostly gluten free (ever since I cut out grains I can't really handle eating them anymore). I am a little worried as this is my second time and wondering if I'm doing something to cause this lowering of the immune system. It just sucks so much to be sick when you are eating so healthy and then to have such a horrible cycle with massive pains. Anyone else have something like this happen to them?

    Second Whole 30! Day one!

    Well you will find a lot of buddies here in this forum! What I love about the whole30 is I can use it as a reset every time I get off track like how you mentioned for the holidays and trips. Every time it does get easier too!

    Second Whole 30! Day one!

    Hey everyone! I'm here again after New Years to make a new commitment to a year of health. I went through the whole 30 this last summer and it really changed my relationship with food and I have made a lot of changes since then. So this next time around I feel I have a lot of the tools and prep to make this happen but need an extra push to get out of the bad things that crept in. I'm still battling the sugar dragon and hope to take this down once and for all this year! I want to start training to cycling long distances and fuel my workouts so I can become stronger overall. It all starts with food and I found that if you have your diet down the rest of your fitness goals become easier to achieve. Cheers to a new year and another Whole 30!
