  1. Hi...prepping and planning for day 1 on Monday. I have the whole30-recommended fish oil, vitamin d, magnesium and multi vitamin along with digestive enzymes I've been searching and reading forums before posting these questions but can't seem to find any blogs or users mentioning incorporating the supplements into their whole 30. I am interested to see how it helped, enhanced or eliminated symptoms throughout the plan. Any comparisons for those who have done with and without? 2-6 digestive enzyme tablets per meal seems like a lot. I guess I am nervous about the effects of these new supplements. Also I have read that oral magnesium is harmful and had planned on taking oral form. Anyone find this not to be true? Any tips & help is greatly appreciated. I am excited to partake on my whole30 journey and cannot wait to see how I do and what is in store for me.
  2. Hi, I just started Whole30 today and can't figure out if my Fish Oil supplement is compliant.

  3. Supplements

    Hi, My apologies if this is covered somewhere on the site, and I've missed it. I'm wondering if it's Whole30 compliant to take supplements? Specifically, multivitamins, calcium, fish oil, iron, and biotin. I do see that there is an approved brand of fish oil on the site - is that the only fish oil that is compliant? Thanks for your help with this!
  4. Acne

    I'm on Day 18 of my Whole 30. I started with the overall goal of getting my hormones in balance and cleaning my gut - all brought to my attention by my struggle with adult acne. I started taking a fish oil supplement at the beginning of my second week. I do eat a lot of grass-fed meats and pastured eggs, but I do not eat any fish and eat out weekly, so I've been supplementing with about 2.5 grams of fish oil per day. Since I started taking the supplement, my breakouts have been horrible. Bigger cystic breakouts than what I've been having on parts of my face that weren't breaking out initially. Towards the end of It Starts with Food when they discuss supplements, they mention taking a GLA supplement if fish oil makes you break out. I've also been reading through the Clear Skin Diet, which recommends taking fermented cod liver oil instead, as it has a smaller dosage, as well as Vitamins A and D (which are good for skin). My question is, why does fish oil make some people break out? Is it because of the imbalanced ratio of Omega 3:6? If so, should I just ride it out? Or lower my dosage and work up? Or, is my body just still detoxing? I'm fully prepared to extend to a Whole 45 or 60 if needed. One more note, if it matters - before I had not had any fermented foods in my diet, and have been drinking GT's Kombucha several times a week to introduce probiotics into my system. Any help, advise, or guidance would be greatly appreciated!
  5. Hello - I'm on day 20 of the program and feel great, following it completely. Today I was prescribed this Dry Eye Omega fish oil for a dry eye condition I have. Ingredients are: highly refined and concentrated omega 3 fish oil, capsule shell (gelatin, glycerin, purified water), Natural mixed berry/Orange flavor, Natural mixed Tocopherols (soy), and Cholecalciferol. I've scoured the forum and internet and cannot find for sure if these are compliant - is anybody here familiar with these? I'm not questioning whether or not I should take it, because it's for a medical condition. However, I am wondering taking four of these a day will have an impact on my diet. Looking for any advice! thanks Eric
  6. Question on Supplement Ingredients

    Hi! Could you please tell me if these supplements are compliant? I have a fish oil which contains natural tocopherols, beef gelatin, glycerin in addition to the fish oil (Carlson Elite Omega 3) Nature's Way Cranberry (which I really need because I have recurring UTIs) which also contains magnesium stearate and silica and Source Naturals Daily Essential Enzymes with cellulose, calcium sulfate, stearic acid, silica, and magnesium stearate (also a probiotic I may use which has gelatin and silica) Thank you!
  7. New Participant

    I'm wondering if I can still take Evening Primrose Oil whilst doing Whole30? I'm also wondering if I need to be taking any additional vitamins / fish oil etc while following the programme - can anyone offer me any advice please? I'm in the UK and many of the 'suggested' supplements I've seen online are USA based. Any help is appreciated. Thanks
  8. Fish oil for fat portion?

    (My apologies if this has been addressed) I'm cutting coffee and subsequently the coconut milk that went with it for my breakfast fat (I can't eat too much in the morning which is why I opted for the c-milk.) Can I use fermented cod liver oil as the fat portion? Does it fall under the "all oils and cooking fats"?
  9. I'm trying to figure out if the fish oil I bought is compliant or if I need to return it and try something else. I cannot afford the one that is recommended. I bought the Kirkland Fish Oil 1200 mg Enteric Coated, the ingredients: Fish Oil Concentrate, Gelatin, Glycerin, Food Glaze. Contains <2% of: Mixed Natural Tocopherols, Monoglycerides, Polysorbate 80, Enteric Coating (Sodium Alginate). Below it says contains fish (anchovy, mackerel, sardine) ingredients. The EPA is 410 mg and the DHA is 274 for one pill. Do not see anywhere that is says contains soy which I know would rule it out. I was going to buy Pure Alaska Omega™ Wild Salmon Oil 1,000 mg which seemed to have less questionable ingredients, but the amounts of EPA and DHA is less for two pills as it is for one pill of the Kirkland one, so I am hoping the Kirkland one is okay.
  10. SFH Fish Oil Intake

    I am really confused on the total daily intake of total omega 3s. The SFH fish oil recommended dose is 1-2 teaspoons daily for general wellness. Each 1 teaspoon has 2204 mg EPA and 990 DHA, total omega 3s, 3705 mg. The recommended daily intake of EPA & DHA from several websites I researched is from 600 mg to 1000 mg. So, this means that SFH fish oil is way over the recommended daily intake with just 1 teaspoon. It seems like SFH fish oil contain too much omega 3's, so, is it harmful to consume that much omega 3's? specifically on EPA.
  11. Sesame lignans in fish oil?

    I am looking for a high-quality fish oil and came across Life Extension Super Omega-3 EPA/DHA. It is apparently very high quality (IFOS 5-star rating) and also reasonably priced. However, it also includes sesame lignans and olive fruit extract. I looked up sesame lignans, and they are a phyto-estrogen. I had thought it was best to avoid phyto-estrogens so I'm a bit confused as to why they are listed as a beneficial ingredient in the fish oil. Can anyone clarify? This is the brand:
  12. Hi all...I read a summary of a new study tonight on NBC. ( Needless to say I am concerned with what I read, especially since I am a male with a family history of prostate cancer. What recommendations do smarter people than I have over this study. From what I read it appears that EPA only would be safer? Would vegetable sources of omegas like Udo's be better than nothing for males in light of this study? Thanks for your feedback and consideration.
  13. Should I Stop My Suppliments?

    On the 30 day challenge and I was wondering how many of you take suppliments? I know I do but before I go further into it I was wondering if I should stop. I take a One A Day Multi-Vitiamin, Biotin, Fish Oil (dry climate in Colorado), and Acai Berry. Your thoughts?
  14. I'm having trouble divining which fish oils (not cod liver oil) are thought to be "clean". I cannot find a cost-effective one that has no suspicious ingredients and also specifically states, "no soy". Soybean oil is quite prevalent as a filler. I cannot afford the brand recommended by the site. Does anyone know for sure whether Nordic Naturals or Carlson's are "clean"? At the very least, I want something free of corn, soy, and gluten, as those are the major ingredients I suspect I may be sensitive to. Also dairy and eggs, but I dont think those are usually an issue with fish oil. I'm kinda tired of going through the ingredients and allergen info (if any) on label after label. I wondered if someone else had already researched this and had some leads.
  15. I'm on day 18 and woke up this morning excited to read my daily Whole30 email as I do every morning. Reading, reading, reading . . . get to the information about fish oil supplements, decide to check the supplements I've been taking and of course - SOY!!!! I'm so angry at myself for not checking these to start off with and so angry at the food/supplement industry for putting crap into everything! Supplements I've been taking: Nature Made Fish Oil 1200 mg, 360 mg omega-3 + vitamin D 1000 iu (1 a day) Nature Made CoQ10 100mg (1 a day) Restart required? I am assuming yes. grrrrrrr . . . .
