  1. Hi everyone! I’m just looking for a little advice and any one who may be able to weigh in on what I’m going through! Let me preface this post by letting you know that I’m in my 20’s and I’ve never had any hormonal imbalances or issues with my mental health before in my life. Last year I started using birth control pills and about 6 months in I started feeling awful. I started to experience anxiety and depression, which I’ve never felt in my life. Because this was the only thing that had changed in my life over the last 6 months, I knew it must be the pills. I decided to stop in October and thought I might be in the clear. However, in November my body went nuts. I started experiencing panic attacks every day, very extreme depression, anxiety, constant nausea, shaking, heart palpitations, and rapid weight loss. I found out that some women experience these extreme side effects as their bodies are trying to learn how to work once they’ve stopped taking birth control. I had no idea! It has now been about five months since I stopped taking birth control and I’m definitely better than I was, but not completely healed. I am mostly left with anxiety, days where I just feel “off” or sad, and some mood swings. I see a naturopath and she suggested that I start Whole30. I’ve already done Whole30 twice before and have enjoyed it, but never have seen any difference in how I feel on it. However, this was before I experienced any of these hormonal/mental issues. I’m wondering if anyone out there has every been through anything similar or if anyone has any advice for me and how Whole30 could help me get back to my normal! Any tips on specific foods I should eat or avoid are welcome!
  2. I'm on day 32 of Whole 30. For day 31 the only thing I reintroduced was a glass and a half of red wine. I felt great all night, slept fine but I woke up about 10 hours after my last glass and my stomach hurt and I've had waves of nausea. I'm trying to figure out if this is a reaction or an actual stomach bug. If it is a reaction I'd love some advice as to what is compliant that could ease the symptoms.
  3. My fabulous husband is sharing the Whole 30 experience with me. (Wonderful man!). Yesterday was day 7. He cooked us a marvelous Creamy Bacon Mushroom Chicken Thigh dinner with cauliflower mash and broccoli. All was fine until we went to bed, and a few hours later he was awake with a grumbling, roiling tummy, nausea and a terrible headache. (Mike doesn’t get headaches). He was up briefly this morning for a light breakfast, but since he only got a couple of hours of sleep last night, he’s back in bed. “Carb flu”?
  4. Okay, this is my 4th Whole30 and I've always had an amazing experience (this year I hardly had any trouble with cravings!) but this year has been rough in terms of tummy troubles. Around Day 11 and 12 I started feeling a little nauseated at the end of the day but thought it was just my gut healing again. And then the nausea and stomach cramps have come up on random days ever since with yesterday Day 29 being the absolute worst. Looking at what I've been eating the only thing I can figure is maybe I am sensitive to onions since they are a pretty high FODMAP food? I had an omelette with onions and peppers for breakfast yesterday when I felt so horrible and was burping onions all day. I've just never had problems with FODMAPs before and it's strange to me that it would show up during Whole30. I seem to have had no trouble when eating other high FODMAP foods this month like apples, garlic, cauliflower, etc. but at the same time I'm not sure if it could be something else! I'm just so bummed that I don't feel amazing on day 30. Has anyone else had this sensitivity show itself during Whole30? Do I need to go see someone? Confused. Help!
  5. I’m hoping someone can share their experience with me. I have endless layers of health isssues and have given up on Drs. It started with food intolerances to finding out I had a form of IBD then layered that with sibo and then sibo I couldn’t conquer due to a layer of toxic mold illness. I’ve lived about 90% dairy and gluten free for many years now and just this past year went grain free as best as I could. (I would say a 100% but I’m not perfect). However I’ve also relied on elemental drinks to help kill off sibo and heal my gut. The main ingredient is dextrose. It’s not absorbed by the small intestine so it helps keep you alive while your body kills the sibo. So with that said my body loves dextrose. I feel incredible when I live solely on physician’s elemental diet. So I know I have a sugar addiction even though outside of the ed diet I really only consumed honey or fruit. I did go a little wild this holiday! I will admit. Anyways I struggle with eating and finding what I can eat without getting hives, having my stomach turn into a giant beach ball, or having massive right side pain. So that’s my background. I decided I would just take on whole30 to help my body learn how to handle food but I’m beyond sick. The only other time I felt like this was 14 years ago when I was pregnant and I ended up in the ER on fluids. I had chronic morning sickness. I’M NOT PREGNANT, NOT POSSIBLE! ☺️ A few days ago I couldn’t even get out of bed. I feel like throwing up. I have about 6-8 bowel movements a day. I thought maybe I had the flu but I don’t. A cold has come and gone through our house. I do have some sinus congestion still. Nothing sounds good except oven roasted potatoes or some soup. Is this normal? Or is something wrong with me? I’m worried. But I told myself after thousands of dollars worth of medical bills this last year and Drs who could never help me but keep finding things wrong I was going to try this in my own. Is anyone else this sick on day 10? Is it’s because of all my health issues? I don’t want to give up at all. Looking to see if this is common???
  6. Hello Whole30 World, My name is Samantha and was inspired to join Whole30 by my sister, who starts today. I wanted to start eliminating sugar from my diet right away, so actually started Dec. 29, but ate a bunch of peas which I didn't know were on the list, so officially started December 31st. I'm a migraine sufferer, so am already experiencing headaches. Have had one for 2 days now. Sleeping with cold packs and trying not to take my migraine medication - yet. I'm definitely getting used to the new kind of food, and having to eat regularly, which I have never really done. And the prep that goes into it. Luckily today is a holiday so I can dedicate it to prepping food for the week. I'm definitely feeling some resistance to the "diet" including the regimen, types of food, side effects such as nausea. But I'm committed to get through the next few days. The migraines don't help! But everyone is different and will have different experiences! I'm just sharing mine. Migraines, anxiety and too much sugar are my achilles heel, so that's why I'm here. I wish all of you the best of luck and wish me luck too! Thank you!
  7. Hello all! I did the whole30 all of the month of September, with a couple of days of adding natural sugars and a couple glasses of wine. I've pretty much stayed away from all gluten, dairy, and processed anything. I'm now having some health issues and wondering if anyone else has experienced this, or has some advice. About 2 weeks ago I was told, after doing blood work, that my pancreatic levels were elevated. My symptoms are pain during and after eating, bloated, fatigued, painful abdomen above belly button. I had an ultrasound yesterday that checked my gallbladder for stones, and that came back as normal. I'm finding that eating small portions throughout the day is so helpful and really chewing my food, literally 30 times. Anyway, I felt it was important to see if anyone else has had similar issues. Otherwise, I had severe weight loss, over 22 pounds, and I'm already tiny, so I can't lose anymore. I love the idea of eating clean, but I'm wondering if I'm missing something. Thanks so much for taking the time to read this!
  8. Hi, I am on day 10 of the Whole 30. My stomach has been a mess. I feel physically fine but I am constantly nauseous and have the worst heart burn ever. My BMs, which before the Whole 30 were at the same exact time every day twice a day -- now happen maybe every other day. I read that it could be the potatoes I am eating but I exercise for a couple hours a day - I have to have carbs somehow. I also read it could be not having enough fat -- but I have PLENTY of fat. I am so tired of my stomach being 100 times worse than before I started. Any suggestions?! Caroline
  9. I had to have oral surgery yesterday, and I'm on antibiotics. Yesterday I felt Ok (other than my mouth), and I took a codeine that was prescribed by my doctor for the pain at 11:00 pm and went to bed. I woke up around 7 and felt fine, but then started to get dizzy while checking my phone. I took a wobenzym (plant based enzymes for joints). By the time I had roasted a yam and boiled eggs, I was hungry, so I was planning on eating breakfast. But when I was peeling the eggs, I felt so nauseous and dizzy again, I had to sit down. My sister in law, who is an MD, told me that I should eat something with salt and I should feel better. I had called her because I was worried I shouldn't have taken the wobenzym with the antibiotic and codeine from the night before. But she said it should be fine. So I choked down my breakfast of egg, bone broth, and yam. That's all I could get down. ugh. I had a normal lunch (butternut squash soup with extra beef and onions, spinach, and riced cauliflower with 1/2 avocado, lime juice and fresh herbs). But I've been feeling nauseous ALL day. I'm not taking any more pain meds. My mouth isn't that bad. It's practically been 24 hours. I've never reacted to codeine like this in the past. Or the wobenzym. I'm wondering if I'm more sensitive now that I have been eating so clean - I'm on day 13. Has anyone else had this experience? Also, this is the first time since I started the whole30 that I have cravings. I'm craving plain crackers, bread like things because of the nausea. I feel like I'm in my 1st trimester again! Anyway, haven't given in - just been sipping my water steeped in some fresh ginger. It's not working though...

    Help. I feel so poorly.

    Hello all I'm at the end of day 5 and am struggling so bad. I'm so tired and achy. My tummy is extremely upset with IBS and I've had constant diarrhoea and nausea. I just can't face food at all and am giving half my meals away. I have Autoimmune problems so not sure if also flaring which is exacerbating things. I realised at first it was probably that I had upped my fruit, especially to quell sugar cravings so I've cut it out. I thought I was winning then tonight it's been so bad again. I have a sneaky suspicion I have an intolerance of eggs. I really don't want to give up and most of the time am ok. Help me please with things to try and protein sources. vicki
  11. I've been playing sports and working out for most of my life (I'm 26 and in pretty good shape). I've always had low blood pressure and my blood sugar fluctuates a lot, but there's nothing actually wrong with me. If I workout in the morning either on an empty stomach or with a snack before I feel fine. But, anytime I workout at night -- easy exercise or hard exercise -- I feel nauseous and weak about 30 minutes afterwards. It doesn't go away unless I go to sleep or eat a simple carb like toast and jelly and a rice krispy. Then I feel better. I've tried eating hard boiled eggs and turkey and guacamole based on Whole30 recommendations and it does not work. Does anyone else have this problem? I've had it for years but doctors never find anything wrong with me. Some days I can't make it to the gym in the morning so this frustrates me. Thanks.
  12. Hi - First off, thank you for manning the forum and helping me complete my Whole30! Greatly appreciated. Secondly, I searched the forum but couldn't find an entry that matched my question so I hope I’m not missing something…. I'm on day 5 of the Whole 30. I ate pretty clean before starting (no refined sugar but honey and maple syrup, no caffeine, some carbs, but I did eat dairy). I had the stomach flu 4 days before I started the Whole 30 and am having the following problems now: Not sleeping well at all. I LOVE to sleep but I am having a hard time falling asleep at night and staying asleep even though I’m tired during the day. Days 1-3 I felt pretty good but had a bit of nausea randomly throughout the day and felt a bit weak Day 4 I felt really tired and pretty weak (as in I normally can carry around my 30lb toddlers no problem but I got tired just picking them up). I have had a really low appetite and having a hard time finishing all of my food Day 5 (today) I’m beat. I have a slight headache, but it’s the nausea, diarrhea and lack of appetite that seems odd to me. For breakfast I’ve been eating at least 2 eggs, compliant bacon or sausage, ½ a sweet potato, and fruit. For lunch I try to eat a green salad with lots of veggies, eggs, grilled chicken and an apple with cashew butter (or whatever was leftover from dinner the night before) For dinner I eat either fish or meat and a veggie and fruit or green salad. I’m just not very hungry or excited about any foods that I’m eating, so I’m not getting much food in. Do you have any thoughts on what could be causing the diarrhea, lack of appetite, nausea and sleeplessness? Are these normal whole 30 side effects on day 5? Thank you for your input! Amy
  13. Hi guys! Doing the whole30 for the first time- my eating habits were so terrible that I had diarrhea at least once a day- my body even stopped being able to absorb my birth control pill causing multiple periods and spotting. I started the Whole30 on monday and have had consistent stomach cramps and nausea since starting, especially at night- uncomfortable enough to wake me up. Is this normal? Any remedies?
  14. I started Monday, April 17, after "Last Suppers" and "Last bag of chips." Until today, I felt fine, nourished. Today, I have had a round of vomiting, loose poo's and a frontal lobe headache. I can't do my work! How do I break out of this? When the nausea stops, what do I eat? I'm in my 60s, so not pregnant. One other note: I was a mostly-vegetarian, so I'm facing not used to so much meat. I've had pork and chicken in addition to eggs. Help! Helen G.
  15. I know breakfast has been discussed to death on the forum, but I have to ask in a specific context if anyone has any ideas. Pretty much all my adult life I have experienced morning nausea (no I am not pregnant is my mantra). It seems to be tied to dehydration- although I drink around 60oz of water per day which is sufficient for my body weight and I drink water first thing when I wake up, before coffee or anything else. It may be related to medication, can't say for sure and can't really test that. The result is I have no appetite in the morning and food grosses me out. My first whole 30 I did a lot of eggs for breakfast but I got burnt out by week 3 and now I can't even look at eggs. Then I tried doing a template meal- veg, meat, fat- and that sometimes works but most of the time makes me gag or worse and I can't get it down. I know I need to eat in the morning- not just because of the rules but for my body's best health, but I just can't seem to find anything appetizing in that first hour. Has anyone else dealt with morning sickness/ extreme food aversion in the morning? Any thoughts on gentle compliant breakfast ideas without eggs? Thanks in advance.
  16. I'm on day 19 and a couple of days ago I started feeling occasional mild nausea and lightheadedness. I'm drinking 70-90 oz of water a day, salting my food, and adding fat to all my meals. It doesn't happen at any predictable time (like when I'm hungry, or only after eating). Otherwise I am feeling good, I have more energy during the day, have had no stomach issues or bloating since starting the whole30 (which I used to get on a semi-regular basis). I'm exclusively nursing my baby, so eating 4-5x a day (3-4 meals a snack). Heres what I've had so far today: Day 19 20oz water M1: chicken sausage, broccoli with ghee, 1/2 avocado, 12oz water Coffee & 20oz water M2: chicken sausage, 2 eggs, salad, evoo, balsamic, sweet potato, baba ganoush 20oz water Coconut water - 11 oz Has anyone else experienced this? Any suggestions on what to do differently?
  17. I'm on day 7 and I have had no appetite since day 1. Because of this, I'm a little worried I'm not eating enough because I also get nausea and headaches every day. Is there a way to increase appetite or adjust meals to make sure I'm eating what nutrients I need? I'm kind of tired of feeling bleh/sick every day. Here's an example of what I might eat in a day: breakfast: hash browns cooked in ghee with apple chicken sausage (breakfast is a huge struggle and I have to kind of choke it down lol) lunch: half a large apple, 3-4 strawberries, ~1/2 tbs sunbutter, -1 tbs pistachios, 3 slices deli turkey dinner: pecan crusted chicken breast pan fried in olive oil, spaghetti squash or potatoes and carrots, small serving of fruit I've been trying to increase veggie intake but I really don't like most vegetables (texture issues) and it's even harder to force myself to eat them when I'm not even hungry. I've been needing a snack (usually a banana) between lunch and dinner. My lunch break is at 11:30 am. Any help would be much appreciated!
  18. I am on day 26 of Whole30 and I am feeling the WORST I've felt the entire time despite a strict adherence to the rules. The first week I felt okay, the second week was a little rough at the beginning, but then I felt great. Late into the third week and now as I am nearly finished on my fourth week I feel awful. Headaches of varying degrees every day and now terrible stomach aches often accompanied by nausea. I NEVER got headaches prior to Whole30, NEVER. I haven't introduced anything new into my diet that I wasn't eating before and I am eating at least 4 times a day if not more. I had a super comprehensive food allergy test done prior to starting Whole30 so I know I'm not eating foods that I have issues with. I have been hydrating like crazy. The only thing that has changed that I can point to is Whole30. I was expecting to feel even better than I did at the start of week 3, not significantly worse. I'm not running a fever or feeling poorly otherwise. Has ANYONE else had this issue? I was planning to keep going for another 30 days while my parents do their first Whole 30 but I am not going to stick with it if I just feel like crap all the time.
  19. I'm new here, and I'm doing a pre-Whole30 trial run - I plan to do my first Whole30 after a Valentine's Day getaway. I'm trying out some of the recipes in advance - to get a feel for the cooking times, and to pre-plan some meal strategies. I made some chicken bone broth (from a roasted chicken carcass and the rest of the ingredients from the Whole30 recipe.) The broth smells good - but I can hardly bear to drink it! It makes me nauseous and I've had to run to the bathroom after drinking it (up until today - today just nausea and headache). I've added a little salt and a drop of Tabasco to the broth, and I can get it down easier that way. I've been eating Whole30 compliant for about a week - meals without the broth are delicious and satisfying. Is my digestive system just that messed up that it can't handle the broth yet? (I do know my digestive system is in need of healing - I have IBS and GERD and type 2 diabetes) - or maybe there is something wrong with this batch of broth? (I would have thought it would smell bad if it was off?..?)
  20. On day 4 and been having a bit of trouble with my stomach. After almost every meal (lunch in particular), I've been either getting a super upset stomach and/or feeling really nauseous. Breakfast is normally two hard boiled eggs, lunch has been grilled chicken with raw veggies (cucumber, carrots, pepper, etc) with compliant homemade vinagarette and dinner has been either grilled chicken with cooked potatoes (sweet potato and regular) with grilled asparagus or scrambled eggs, homemade salsa, avocado and potato. Any suggestions on things I need to add or change?

    Oh, my tummy...

    I'm on Day 6 and so far so good. However, yesterday and today I'm so nauseous. It's from my seasonal allergies, which lead to post-nasal drip, which lead to an upset stomach. It happens a few times a year. I know it's not related to Whole 30 but the problem is that my go-to relievers aren't allowed. I usually have a little ginger ale and/or some saltines and it helps settle my stomach but obviously I can't do that. What do you guys do if you have an upset stomach that is compliant with the plan?
  22. Hello all! I am on day 11 of my first ever Whole30. Since day 2 I have experienced extreme nausea. I haven't vomited but have definitely had an upset stomach everyday, for most of the day. What I've eaten the past few days are below. Any insight is greatly appreciated as I would like to start feeling good. My water intake is anywhere from 72 to 96 oz. I am pouring myself one cup of black coffee around 8:00 am but have yet to actually finish a cup (usually finish about half). Monday, 5/9 Breakfast (6:30 am): 2 salted hard boiled eggs, 2 sausage (made from ground turkey) patties, 4 cherry tomatoes, 8 grapes Lunch (11:30 am): 2 cups of the chicken primavera from the Whole30 book, (I had two side of veggies too but am totally drawing a blank of what they were) Snack (4:30 pm): RxBar Dinner (6:15 pm): Melissa's Chicken Hash from the Whole30 book - only a few bites because the nausea was pretty strong Note: nausea started around 4:30 pm and continued until about 9:00 pm Yesterday, 5/10 Breakfast (6:30 am): 3 salted hard boiled eggs, 4 cherry tomatoes, 8 grapes Lunch (11:30 am): Strip steak, 1 cup of sweet potatoes, .5 cup broccoli Snack (4:15 pm): Apple and Larabar Dinner (8:00 pm): 10 shrimp, salad - 50/50 spring mix, tomato, diced peppers, half an avocado Note: nausea started a couple hours after lunch and continued into the night around 9 pm it was stomach pain until I went to bed (around 10:00 pm) Today Breakfast (6:30 am): 4 salted hard boiled eggs, 2 cherry tomatoes, 8 grapes Lunch (12:00 pm): Carnitas bowl from Chipotle (carnitas - double meat, guacamole, pico de gallo, romaine lettuce) (this is my first time eating out since beginning Whole30) Note: nausea started around 1:15 pm Any insight is appreciated! Thank you in advance, Christine
  23. Hi, I have been doing super well on the Whole 30 so far. Feeling great and completly enjoying it. I have not had any negative side affects at all but being cranky one day about three days in. This morning, I woke up feeling fine and then immediately started feeling nauseaus and vomitting. It has not gone away. Any ideas to what this may be? Please help!
  24. So I did my first Whole40 back in October and instantly discovered a FODMAP issue, so I avoided those foods as much as I could to avoid the diarrhea, stomach pain and nausea that followed. Then I went travelling after my Whole40 was complete and took probiotics and digestive enzymes on a daily basis to help me digest the foods I would have to eat. This seemed to have worked relatively well, but I didn't like having to depend on supplements to eat. When I returned, I tried to return to a Whole30 diet and continued on the probiotics, but was terrible constipated (up to 6 days without a bm). I have stopped on the probiotics, but my stomach has returned to the flushing everything through me method as soon as I eat it, accompanied by more nausea and stomach pains. Along with avoiding FODMAPS, I've been finding that my stomach now cannot digest things like coconut milk, vinegars, almost all fruit, and the list goes on. Even if I eat the smallest amount of these foods, I can feel it just go right through me. It's like my body can't digest anything with even the remotest amount of sugar, carb or even too much oil. The past couple days I've been drinking a teaspoon of kombucha and it's literally jammed my insides and given so much pain. I just find it weird that all of these foods, even fodmap foods affect me, when they never have in the past. Has this happened to anyone else? Does anyone know what could be going on with my insides?
  25. I'm on day 8 today! It's going okay, except every morning I feel very hungry as soon as I wake, but when breakfast is ready I have no appetite and feel sick (I try to eat within the hour, toddler permitting). Then I'm hungry again 2 hours later. What's going on? I've been mostly having 3 eggs with ghee and veggies for breakfast.
