  1. I completed a Whole30 a few weeks ago and until Sunday I had not reintroduced any forbidden foods, except for occasional small amounts of cane sugar, and at least one serving of non-compliant oil. On Sunday I purposely consumed wheat as my first official reintro. I didn't start the reintroduction until around dinner time, so I ate several servings of wheat at once, in the form of two pieces of bread, a small serving of pasta, and a serving of pot roast cooked in a beer-based sauce. Since that meal, I have returned to Whole30 eating. Sunday evening I noticed a headache but this did not surprise me since I often have tension headaches. However, not only has the headache continued on and off since then, but it has been accompanied by intermittent nausea ranging from mild to quite bad this morning. Interestingly, eating (Whole30 meals) seems to help with the symptoms. I have no history of migraines. Is it possible that there is a connection between the wheat and my intermittent headaches and nausea? If so, is it unsurprising that I would still be experiencing these effects almost three days out?
  2. Hi, I'm on day 7 of my whole30 and feel progressively worse everyday. I started for 2 reasons - 1. I have ulcerative colitus, and am looking for a way to control it though diet and 2. though years of flares, I've become overly reliant on carbs and sugar for energy - time I've spent feeling so unwell that the only thing that appeals is jelly on toast, and I think that's had a psychological effect on my 'need' for carbs and sugar. (Worth noting, though, that I was no flaring when I started). But I just feel awful and so frustrated. I'm training for a marathon, and I suck at running since I started. I feel constantly light headed and sick, and because nothing else appeals I'm eating too many nuts and dried fruit (I know, I know - tell me how to stop). My stomach feels almost as bad as when I'm having a UC flare, and I look about 5 months pregnant. Plus, I live in Greece i.e. carb and legume heaven. It is *so* hard to find complient food here - and I cannot get my hands on a sweet potato no matter how hard I look. (On the plus side, incredible olive oil!!) I'm searching for some tips, some encouragement, reasssurance that I'll feel better soon, because I am so close to just throwing in the towel, eating some jam and bread and actually being able to enjoy my long run today... Thanks all.
  3. Good evening! I wanted to start whole 30 in hopes of helping relieve some of the chronic ailments I have and I have read many posts on how this program actually helped reduce symptoms. My husband and I started this past weekend; but due to my fibromyalgia and various other ailments, I have chronic, irretractable nausea accompanied by chronic vomiting. As such, in the past three days, I have remained whole 30 compliant but my food intake has been extremely limited... I am starting to worry that I will not get the benefits associated with this program simply because if my inability to hold food down most days. Any suggestions on a micro level whole 30? Specific food I should really focus on?. I constantly hydrate (even before), I am nibbling in raw veggies the most over the past three days, but have no idea how to tackle this with the nausea issues. Any ideas is greatly appreciated!
  4. Hi everyone, It's day 4 and I feel awful. Maybe it was the kumbucha i've been drinking, maybe I'm not getting enough protein...but my life-force dwindling. My gut feels like it's undergoing severe changes, my mood is bitch on wheels, i am so sleepy and really do want to KILL ALL THINGS. my meal plans have been good so far: Tuesday: Steak Salad (prepare chicken) Wednesday: Coconut cream and indian spiced Chicken drumsticks with broc and sweet potatoes Thursday: Stir fry pork and veggies with cauliflower rice (brine wings) Friday: roasted chicken wings with potatoes cooked in chicken juices and tomato onion cucumber salad. Those are dinner, for lunches i eat those leftovers. I think where I am screwing up is breakfast. I have an iced black coffee, fruit (I know...awful), and maybe one of those RX whole 30 approved bars. I really don't have time to make eggs and sugar free bacon every morning. Do you think I feel so awful because my gut is trying to heal? I get sharp pangs every half hour. I'm definitely not hungry, and in fact, nauseated. Help!
  5. I am on day 4 of whole 30 and woke up this morning feeling nauseated. the thought of any food at all was unbearable. Spent most of morning lying in bed between bouts of diarrhea and vomiting (dry heaving as nothing actually came up). Rest of day feels as if i have been hit by a truck - headache, joint pain, still nauseous, cold, exhausted. Up till now, first three days were awesome. Only thing i could stomach today has been about 15 red grapes, one boiled egg, and green tea. i'm hoping this is normal? Just wanted to hear if anyone else had experienced this. Thanks!
  6. I have 2 prescribed medications that must be taken at bedtime. They make me extremely nauseated if taken on an empty stomach. Any suggestions on how to make this work with "3 meals, no snacking" and "stop eating a few hours before bed"? I am on Day 2. Last night was horrible - nausea, pain & burning in stomach until I feel asleep. Then I woke up nauseated (but that could be just day 2...)
  7. Hello! I am in day 11 of my first whole30 and have been feeling pretty terrible the past two days (nausea, headache, achy, low energy - I can barely get out of bed!). I have not had anything off plan, and all my meals follow the recommended template. The only problem I can pinpoint is that I have consistently only been able to eat two meals a day! (Uh-oh...) In life before whole30, I generally only ate two meals a day as well. I tend to feel too nauseous in the morning to eat and have therefore gotten used to skipping breakfast and not being hungry until about 12pm. I'm trying very hard to turn this around and eat meals 1, 2 and 3 at their proper times. I'm a little worried that I am a third of the way through my whole30 and have not been successful yet. Do you think the fact that I have only had 2 meals per day for the first 10 days is grounds for a restart or a whole30+? And does anyone have any recommendations for getting meal 1 in earlier in the day so that I can also fit meal 2 and 3 in before it gets too late in the evening? (Background info: I am 22 years old, female, and have hashimoto's disease. I don't know if my hypothyroidism is part of my inability to eat in the morning, but I am hoping I can achieve 3 regular meal times per day and overall better health through my whole30 journey!) Thank you for your help!
  8. I am on day 3 of my first Whole30...I am really struggling with feeling nauseated since day 1. Day 1 I also already got "the headache" but that luckily has not reappeared. I know I can't take Pepto or tums because of the added sugar, I hate ginger flavor, and peppermint tea doesn't seem to be doing the trick. Does anyone have any suggestions of stomach soothers that I could try that are compliant? Day one and day two were pretty much constant with nausea...Today I actually felt ok until I ate lunch...then literally about 5 minutes later I was lightheaded and thought I was going to toss my non-existent cookies. Here is a look at my meals the last few days. I am really working on ramping up breakfast (I know I need more protein there) However, prior to this my "breakfast" consisted of a glass of juice or almond milk. I still have a hard time eating "food" before about 10 am, but I am forcing it to happen. Actually right now I feel like I am having to force myself to eat most of the time as even thinking about food can trigger the "ugh" feeling or make it worse. Prior to the entire Whole30 I was probably eating 5-6 small meals a day and I ate whole grains, dairy, and I love hard cider and chocolate. White flour and sugar were already long gone from my house, but coconut sugar, honey, etc were used in place of that. I am drinking water with lemon, unsweetened green tea, and La Croix. Day 1 breakfast: (I was planning on hardboiling eggs the night before, but dropped the entire carton...had to grab some the next day) Banana 2 Dates Very small handful of raw almonds Lunch: 1 cup compliant Turkey Taco Meat 1 cup lettuce leaves 5 mini bell peppers 1/4 sweet potato Dinner: 4 1.5 inch compliant turkey/chicken meatballs with an egg mixed in and cooked in coconut oil 1.5 cups homemade compliant marinara with added bell peppers, carrots, and zucchini Day 2 Breakfast 1 hard boiled egg Banana Very small handful of almonds Lunch: 1 cup of compliant Tuna Salad 1 medium avocado 5 mini bell peppers Small handful baby carrots Dinner: compliant Paleo Beef Stroganoff with olives on top of Zoodles (Hubbs is allergic to mushrooms sadly) Large serving of steamed brussels drizzled with Balsamic and avocado oil Day 3: Breakfast 2 hardboiled eggs Banana Apple 3 mini peppers Lunch: Leftover Stroganoff and zoodles with around 4 brussles tossed in 1/2 cup of compliant Sweet Potato/apple/chicken sausage hash Fresh Pineapple, probably about a cup 10 green olives I honestly don't even want to think about it....but dinner plans tonight are for chicken breasts cut into strips, dipped in egg and a little almond/coconut flour, with roasted sweet potato wedges with a compliant mustard sauce for dipping and some mini peppers on the side. I know I for sure need to up the protein in my breakfasts, but right now I need something that is compliant that might help soothe my stomach. I am miserable at work and it is affecting my performance.... Hellllllp!
  9. I'm on Day 5 and so far, I have not had any of the issues or symptoms mentioned in the calendar log (no headache, diarrhea, irritability, etc.) However, last evening, we had a very late dinner and I developed nausea a little before dinner but was fine after dinner. Today, after my lunch, I have a nausea (seriously, I did not like the chicken in my chicken cobb salad!). Couple of questions:- 1. Can palm-size protein portion come from non-meat items such as spinach/green peas/green beans? The meat is something I am not able to like 3 times a day, 7 days a week! 2. If I have a nauseous feeling and cant eat much, can I take coconut water(for electrolytes) or homeopathic remedies (sugar pills) to alleviate the nausea? Would appreciate some help. --Sarmishta PS: Attaching my food log.
  10. I'm on day 11. Last night I felt nauseous and was sure I was going to be sick. We had steamed veggies steak tips with a pineapple teriyaki sauce (soy free/whole30 approved). I've had the sauce before and I didn't feel sick from it. I was very gassy today and going to the bathroom a lot (loose stool). I had some leftover steak tips for lunch with an avocado, and felt awful. Stomach pains, nausea, going to the bathroom, and gassy. I never was like this before. Anyone have a clue what's going on?

    Severe Menstrual Cramps and Nausea

    I finished my first Whole30 two days ago but haven't started reintroducing anything yet. Yesterday, I got my period, and I'm experiencing the worst cramps I've had in a very long time. Not even my previous period was this crampy (when I was on Day 4), but it was late. I'm used to pretty painful periods, but this reminds me of the pain I had in high school where I'd beg my mom to come pick me up from school. I'm also insanely nauseated--to the point where even the thought of food turns my stomach. I've tried to cut starchy vegetables during my Whole30 since I am overweight, but maybe I need to put them back into my diet? I would really, really appreciate any suggestions to curb the cramps and the nausea. Before Whole30, I relied on Aleve/Advil to get me through the first couple days of my period, but I'm really trying to cut back. [Also, I don't have a tub or a heating pad, but I'll probably get the heating pad soon.] Thank you!
  12. Ok, this is the third day I've had really severe nausea in the morning, driving home from work. I do graveyard shifts, and try to have my meals around 6:30 pm, 12:30 am and 6:30 am. I felt this way on day 5, day 11, and today. I walked in my front door and there was a lingering cooking smell from last night and I could barely keep myself from throwing up. I have also had pretty significant hot flashes throughout the nights, and I'm only 30. Often times, my stomach feels the hottest. I suspect that maybe it's the change of burning fat, but it's rough. Yesterday I ate: meal 1 of leftover paleo tex mex (ground beef, squash, carrots, parsnip, tomatoes and sweet potatoes with quite a bit of coconut oil), meal 2 of roasted chicken and paleo gravy with green beans and coconut flakes, and could only force down a few bites of meal 3 this morning, ground turkey, apples and cinnamon, also with coconut oil. I drink tea and water throughout the night. Ideas? Looking forward to help!
  13. Hello all! I'm on Day 18 of my Whole 30. Overall, everything has been pretty tame. I have been going through the motions of the timeline pretty regularly and my withdrawal wasn't so bad. I was 75% paleo before the program (with the exception of my Easter binge before ) Everything was pretty basic UNTIL NOW. I am experiencing EXTREME dizziness, nausea, unquenchable thirst, claminess and light-headedness to the point of almost fainting. Due to my anxiety-that I had previously my whole life- this is triggering my anxiety that I haven't had since I started and I've had to take a Xanax for the first time since my Whole 30. Didn't want to, but this sick thing had me up for hours in fear and paranoia. To top it all off, I'm on my period, day 3 which is typically the worst for me. Cramping and all. I'm 24, not sure if that info helps in regards to hormones. Before this, I was drinking approx 60 oz of water a day. The past 2 days I've drank close to 90-100 oz of water and some tea. My meals for the past few days have been: Day 16 Meal 1: Pistachio crusted Salmon (10oz) 1 1/2 cup of Broccoli Meal 2: 5 ounces Chicken with Almond flour crust (as well as spices) 2-3 baked Sweet potatoes with cinnamon 1 cup of strawberries Meal 3: Baked Salmon (8 oz) 1 1/2 cup Spinach Sunflower Seeds 1/4 Bell pepper 1 Carrot 1 banana Day17 Meal 1: 3 Eggs Scrambled Coconut Milk 1 cup Broccoli Handful of Cashews Meal 2: 1 can of Tuna 1 whole avocado 2 Tbs of jalapeno sauce (whole30 compliant) 3-4 baked sweet potatoes with cinnamon Snack: coconut water (normally never have, but panicked about electrolytes when I got dizzy) Meal 3: 1 can Tuna 1 whole avocado 2 Tbs jalapeno sauce 1/2 cup kimchi 3/4 cup broccoli 1/2 bell pepper 2 carrots Today: Meal 1: 4 eggs scrambled Coconut Milk 1 cup Broccoli 1 Tbs of Jalapeno sauce 1 handful of cashews I know it's not much variety, but the dizziness has me so scared to drive, I go home and avoid the store and end up eating what I have. But I do usually mix it up between fish, poultry, red meat, and eggs. I feel like I'm eating enough of the 3 categories, I usually fill my plate. Perhaps I'm not eating enough salt? I think the sweet potatoes and broccoli show that I don't have carb flu or anything like that so who knows? Please help in any way! I can be quite the hypochondriac and I'm freaking out a little bit! Starting to get the shakes Thank you!!

    Nausea from gelatin

    Anyone else get nauseous from eating gelatin? I recently bought some of the Great Lakes stuff (red package, the gelling kind), tried it in a few recipes, and felt sick to my stomach after consuming it (assuming it was the gelatin as it was the only constant in the recipes, and I feel icky even thinking about it). I don't feel this way after using the water-soluble kind (green package). WTF???

    Day 8, but just joining forum

    Hello all! I'm so excited to be taking this journey. I'm on Day 8 and have been doing pretty well. I'm feeling better digestively, for the most part, but am still having some troubles similar to what I experienced before. I'm learning I may have to cut out onions (gasp, no!) and chicken from my diet, and possibly not use ghee (I may be THAT sensitive to dairy, but I can't tell because it could also be the onions or chicken, both of which have given me trouble in the past). What I AM noticing, though, and would love some advice with: I get full way before my meal is over. I don't think I could be eating too much for breakfast because right now, I'm about 50 minutes away from lunch and I'm very hungry (breakfast was about 8:45 or 9, lunch is at 1ish). But getting through breakfast this morning was a real challenge. I had broccoli and spinach with 2 eggs. I forced down a few strawberries after, too, because I knew I'd be super hungry about now, but I didn't want them. I didn't want one of the eggs either, and about half the broccoli. Do I just need to eat my meals in stages? I'm ok with that; I just don't know what's going on. I also noticed I'm having some trouble with constipation, which is *never* a problem for me. I already drink a lot of water, so I'd have a hard time imagining it's that. Any thoughts? I can't wait to see how I feel on day 30! Looking forward to doing this with all of you!
  16. So this is my second Whole 30 in the last year, first one was amazing. Although I am seeing quick results (of note, I was 6 weeks post partum when I started), the severe nausea and bloating that I am feeling is UNREAL!! It makes me not want to eat anything! It's been intermittent x 1 week. Sometimes it happens shortly after eating, other times it strikes 3 hours after the meal. I am also breast feeding and sleep is not consistent I don't want to quit this far along, but I'm just not sure how much more I can take, especially with a newborn (not to mention my 6 and 3 y.o.). I have 2 weeks to go! Any ideas??
  17. I'm struggling a bit with figuring out how much I need to eat. I am breastfeeding a 9 month baby boy who is still getting up once a night to feed. I am currently on day 4 and am feeling ok. Day 3 was a NIGHTMARE! I nursed my son at 5AM and fell back asleep and woke up at 730 AM and I was so incredibly shaky and nauseated I was so worried the whole time I was making breakfast that I was going to pass out. I shoved some hazelnuts and raisins in my mouth to hopefully quell the low sugar shakes. After I ate breakfast I started to feel better about 30 minutes afterwards. Then I started to feel lousy again while I was making my lunch. I was trying to only eat 3 super large meals with no snacks since that was is strongly encouraged in the book but I am used to eating 5-6 times a day. I don't want to sabotage my good efforts by snacking too much. I do have a sweet tooth but I've managed it in the past by having some fruit and dark chocolate after dinner. I'm not doing Whole30 to lose weight, I'm 5'4 120 lbs, but rather I'm doing it to mainly increase my energy levels and adopt a paleo diet. Really the only thing that I'm doing different with the Whole30 is not having added sugar like with paleo baked goods. Here is an example of what I've eaten: Day 1: Breakfast: 2 eggs scrambled with green chilies, chard, 1/4 avocado, tomato, sweet potato cooked in ghee - half cup blueberries with coconut butter and cinnamon Lunch: Salad with mixed veggies, 5oz can tuna, 1/4 avocado, walnut oil, tangerine Snack: banana with macadamia nut butter Dinner: chicken coconut curry with broccoli, cashews and sweet potato Day 2: Breakfast: 2 scrambled eggs, half sweet potato, broccoli, chard, 1/4 avocado - 1/2 blueberries with coconut butter and cinnamon Lunch: chicken breast with mixed green salad, handful olives, olive oil, 1/4 avocado Dinner: Three 'No Fuss Salmon Cakes', broccoli, asparagus, carrots cooked in ghee and coconut oil Day 3: Breakfast: Handful raisins and hazelnuts while making bfast because I was SO shaky! - 3 eggs scrambled, tomato, spinach, 1/2 avocado, banana Snack: tablespoon coconut butter and some raisins Lunch: Chicken breast with 1 salmon cake, olives, olive oil, green salad, 1/2 cup coconut milk, 1/2 cup blackberries Snack: raisins, shredded coconut, hazelnuts Dinner: 2 salmon cakes, 1/2 avocado, leftover sauteed veggies in ghee and coconut oil, tomato Snack 60 mins before bed: 1/2 cup coconut milk, 1/2 mashed banana, 1 tbsp chia seeds I felt much better this morning after I read a bunch of forum postings about low sugar shakes and adjusted my meals on Day 3 accordingly. I also ate a handful of cashews after an early morning nursing session. Really my question is am I eating too much fat and fruit? Am I eating too many snacks? I'm eating a considerably larger amount of fat than I was previously and I don't want to gain weight. I'm following the correct hand measurements for meal preparation. I just don't want to get those low sugar shakes again! I felt pretty awful all day yesterday and I know that that's common on days 2-3. Thanks so much for reading my dissertation and for the advice!
  18. I started 3/31. My tummy has been gassy/"girgly"/unsettled/full feeling on and off since night 1. I haven't had any diarrhea or anything. I may have eaten too much fruit night 1 and maybe at lunch on day 2. And perhaps too many sweet potatoes from the get go... So night 2, I made sure to not have either. Today (day 3) I ate 3 eggs, green beans, cashews, 1/2 banana, and 1/2 an apple for breakfast. After bodypump and pilates, that ended at 1:15, I should've been ready to eat lunch but I have been extremely nauseated and a headache has set in. I feel like I'm going to blow chunks at any minute. There's no way I can eat. 1. Could my body just need time to digest? (I mean, I have been eating more densely than usual (at some meals) since I began and I'm sure my "Am I full?" judgement is still adjusting.) 2. Or is this just the hangover? Either way, is it okay to skip meals?
  19. Hi everybody! I just started the Whole30 last Saturday. I am a vegetarian / partial vegan (I've been eating yogurt ever since I started Whole30), and am training for a half-marathon. I have done half-marathons before - no problem - although this is my first half-marathon where I am a little overweight and also starting on Whole30. I went for an 8-mile run yesterday and when I was finished, I was suddenly nauseous and could not eat for about two hours, until I laid down for a bit and let my stomach pains go away. I have never experienced this before, even on a long run. Have any of you had problems like this, and if so, what was your solution?

    Day 3: Nausea

    Hi All! I am on day 3 of the Whole30 and I'm struggling with eating ANYTHING. Once or twice I've actually been hungry but overall no appetite and when I DO eat I feel like I'm going to be sick. Anyone else experiencing this? I finding breakfast aka "Meal 1" to be especially hard. Nothing is appetizing and for me, if I don't have an appetite I feel sick when I eat and feel sick when I don't. Any suggestions on MILD Meal 1 that doesn't include eggs? Thanks, Anne
  21. HELP! I've had nothing but constant nausea for my first 5 days... I can barely gag down meal 1 today, sweet potato hash and fried eggs w/ avocado. I've always been a coffee drinker (black) and that doesn't even appeal to me. Are there any anti-nausea foods, spices anything that can get me through this? Anything I think of eating (even old habitual carbs and sugar) make me turn green. I've also had the typical foggy headed and headache feelings to go along with this too, awesome combo!

    Vegan on Whole30

    I am vegan and have been for 3 1/2 years Vegetarian at least 3 years before that, although i was always careful to avoid processed food, i did eat alot of beans, tofu, basmati rice and the like.. ALthough I rarely ate bread and when i did it was wheat and gluten free. My nutritionist suggested allowing myself organic chick peas as an additional source of protein. I do not eat meat (obviously) so therefore i have to be careful with protein intake... I am on day 15 of the Whole 30 and I went through a bout of low grade headaches on day 4 through 6 , those went away and now on days 14 through today (15) I have been experiencing Nausea, a little gassy, crampy... just not feeling 100% i have researched this and this does not appear to be uncommon, (carb flu as I understand it) curious as to any ways to alleviate these symptoms or if because I am Vegan I may be lacking something.... I eat tons of spinach, kale, brussel sprouts,I am not a huge fan of fruit so don' t eat much, may this be a problem?...I eat nuts and dates.... and only water and herbal teas as I do not drink fruit juices or soda and never did... just curious as to what may be going on or if this is the normal trajectory... Thank You in advance for any input Best Charm
  23. Started Whole30 yesterday and I think I over did it on the meat. I really don't like meat and don't eat it that often. Each serving was only about my palm size, as recommended. So now it's only day two and I feel absolutely awful! Headache, foggy, tired, bad nausea...I can't eve bear to eat a thing this morning. My normal diet is overall "healthy" and light. I don't think the carb flu would be setting in after only one day so I think it would be related to the meat. How can I continue like this?! Is it ok to cut way back on my meat servings? Any thoughts/advice greatly appreciated!

    cramps and nausea - help!

    Hey guys, I've started the whole30 3 days ago and my mom spontaneously decided to join me. She is skeptical about the rules but wants to give it a try because she needs to change her eating habits (she is overweight and has knee problems). I know we have both only just started the program and enjoy our meals quite a lot. However, we are already running into troubles: While my mum has been suffering from painful cramps in her calves and toes since yesterday, I was nauseated last night and tonight and got stomach cramps that kept me awake. My mom has never had problems with cramps before and I have never had any stomach conditions either. I also didn't adjust my diet drastically as I've been eating paleo for several months already. I really want to follow through with the program. But I can already see how my mum is starting to doubt the whole thing. She is a doctor and generally doesn't believe in guidelines like no dairy or no legumes... All this is making me very insecure. Should we just push through? Take supplements? Or is the whole30 just not for everyone? It makes me miserable and discouraged to think that I am making my mum feel bad when she trusted me and my research instead of what she learned in medical school... Thanks in advance for your help.
  25. All has been going well, I'm on day 10 and becoming more relaxed about the food template- it has become intuitive very quickly. Yesterday i started with a big breakfast; rushed around a bit more than usual, so when I was in the supermarket I grabbed a 1oz pack of almonds & dried fruit, it looked harmless. Obviously hunger and fatigue had marred my thinking- I bolted them down, only then did I look at the ingredient list- preservative, sunflower oil, sugar. Now it was such a small portion but I ended up with the most horrendous migraine. Migraine always make me hungry, so far I have followed the template, but now I am hungry for protein like chicken dipped in mayo and the thought of veges turns my stomach. What to do? I can feel my blood sugar dropping and migraine returning, usually when it is this bad I eat honey from a spoon. I also feel really depressed and want to weep so am hiding in bed...
