  1. So I typically eat healthy and limit sugar in general so adjusting to this plan was pretty easy. However, I have yet to see the benefits. Im not looking to loose weight, but was hoping that an elimination diet would get my gut under control and my put my digestion in check. However, I broke out in acne - which I never ever get - about a week ago, and my gas is ridiculous! I referred to my blood type diet and saw that I should not be eating beef, which is mainly what I was eating the first 3 weeks. The elimination of chicken and beef have seemed to help more than anything else. I also eased up on the potatoes as I felt like they were just making me fat. Also having trouble understanding why additives are approved like dipotassium phosphate in Nut Pods? Seems odd for the program to allow this, and not allow other whole food substances. When stuff doesn't make sense to me it's really hard to see the point.
  2. Hi there! Im on Day 17 and thus far and have been feeling great and have stayed pretty true to the normal timeline i.e. The Hangover, Kill all the things etc etc. I have been feeling thinner, better energy and overall great and so excited how everything has been working. Starting over the weekend and today being the worst so far and I am insanely bloated and can feel how my pants are fitting more snug than usual. I know this sometimes happens around Day 11 so wondering if I am delayed or what? I also ate out 3 days in a row for one meal a day but did my absolute best to stay on track. I am trying to drink plenty of water. Maybe I am backed up a little? The bloating is really getting me down and discouraged though as I have felt so much lighter for the past few weeks.
  3. YEsterday was day 18. I am feeling great with a word - Clean. I baked chicken thighs with just salt, pepper, and garlic powder. They crisped up real nice. After two hours of eating 2 (too many?) thighs, I could feel my stomach bloating and a tightness (?) at the belly. The bloating was still there this morning and is slowly receeding. Can a certain food, that is on plan, cause bloating? I find it really interesting that this happened in that if I was eating regularly I wouldn't know what caused the bloating However, the thighs were the only "new" food since I started the program.

    Bloating

    Hi all, I am on evening of day 8 and started due to severe IBS symptoms for a long time.. since starting my bloating and pain has pretty much gone (woohoo!) but tonight I had steamed salmon bought from shop (had salmon loads already) boiled broccoli (had before) and sweet potato(had loads of times) and I’ve had really bad bloating for the last three hours! It’s just like it used to be.. None of the food had ingredients lists so I have no idea what I’m reacting to. Has anyone else had this? could anyone suggest what it could be? Any help massively appreciated :) thank you!
  5. Hi I posted in the intro/welcome forum also.. I'm on day 6 and surprised to have my chronic acid reflux / GERD that I was hoping to address in 'reintroduction' as to which foods were triggering. Right now I just have a sore throat and chest congestion, but can feel the cough coming on which is really horrible, keeps me up all night with the coughing attacks, etc. I also have been having low energy, constipation, and bloating. I'm wondering if there are some logical answers to this? Like perhaps, I'm detoxing from a diet heavy in sugar and had gotten away from my healthy habits, so now my body is trying to get rid of some of those reserves? I'm staying with it and feeling positive and hopeful, but man I feel crummy!! Bethany
  6. Hello Whole30 Nation! I would love to be active here, as I don't have anyone IRL that I'm doing my challenge with. I was actually on a first date who told me about how he loves the whole30, had heard about it before- and really was looking for something like this, so got the books and started a few days later! I am normally pretty healthy with diet and exercise, however it has gotten a bit out of hand in the past year or so. I chose to take the challenge for three main reasons: 1. address and break the sugar addiction that was getting out of control 2. see if I can find a solution for some troubling chronic physical ailments such as acid reflux / GERD causing a horrible cough; and constipation 3. reset my healthy eating habits and get back to my ideal weight. I know its still early- however I have completed a week of eating according to the plan and thought I would share one positive and one negative: POSITIVE: I have been surprised that I'm not hungry or craving sugar, almost from the very beginning. My sugar cravings were so strong before, and I seem to be completely satisfied by the meals that I don't even want to snack/eat dessert which SHOCKS me. NEGATIVE: the GERD cough and constipation immediately flared up badly. Also, I've been extremely low energy and don't feel like exercising at all, hard to get out of bed, etc. I'm extremely bloated and feel heavier than when I started. Does anyone else have the experience of low energy at the beginning, have constipation/bloating, and/or trigger your chronic ailments you were hoping to get rid of? And great to be here, I'm still excited about the program just wondering if anyone has any ideas why I'm experiencing this. Thanks! Bethany
  7. I know it's a common problem on W30 but it's making me a bit crazy. So, I've just finished day 9 of my first (and prob last) Whole 30. Prior to this, I've always eaten basically well, including all grains, legumes and dairy, but never enough vegetables or fruit, and way too much sugar. I had sugar in tea and coffee, frequent chocolate, and lots of biscuits and sweet treats! So I'm doing this to reset my diet and get rid of my sugar cravings once and for all. Normally, my digestion is very good, and although I did get bloated after a carb heavy meal such as pasta, once I took steps to reduce my sugar consumption and eat more veggies, my stomach would flatten within a couple of days. I have no medical issues at all. My challenges are that I have a one year old and I'm a working single mum, so I find it hard to get out to exercise unless it's pushing a pram around the streets. Now, I'm having problems I've never had before! Bloated always, a bit better in the mornings but worse at night, just as if I'd eaten a big refined carb meal. Gas (ugh). Bunged up for the first 5 days, then intermittent runs since then. And now, pale, floaty poo, making me think that I'm not digesting fat properly. It's NOT FAIR! I'm 100% compliant with the regime with no cheats or technicalities. Here is a sample of what I'm eating, what I had today (I'm getting lots of variety too with different meals every day, all cooked from scratch, including red meat, poultry, eggs and fish, many different veggies). 1. Scrambled eggs x 2, mushrooms sautéed in ghee, grilled tomato, baby spinach leaves and 1/3 poached chicken breast, plus 10 cashews. Mug herbal tea 2. Big bowl chicken and veg soup with homemade stock and 2/3 added poached chicken breast, 1 banana (veg in soup was sweet potato, carrot, zucchini and spring onion) Long black coffee Hard boiled egg and 6 cashews for emergency snack (don't usually snack but felt hollow today) 3. Roast lamb with roasted sweet potato, carrot, pumpkin and steamed broccoli, gravy made from pulsed leftover roast veg, pan juices and balsamic vinegar I usually have a couple tablespoons of coconut butter with an apple or a handful of berries after dinner, but didn't tonight as had already had banana for lunch. Plenty of water, at least 2 liters a day. The advice I'm reading on the forums for digestive issues seems to be to take enzymes and to add a probiotic. If this way of eating is so fabulous, why should I need supplementation to help my body do what it's always done well before (when I was eating "dirty")? Is it possible that some people's guts are just not suited to this regime, or rather, this regime is not one size fits all! I am starting to worry that a high animal protein/high fat diet could be causing lasting harm to my digestive tract. I don't want to turn into one of the many, many people who can't eat grains or legumes or dairy foods without getting stomach aches! Is this regime possibly going to cause me a problem where previously none existed?
