I finished the W30 like a champ, wasn't hard for me at all actually. I had already cut milk and was using almond milk, I had already been eating and using coconut oil and I love veggies. I basically just had to cut foods like corn, grains, dairy and sugar. I decided at 30 that I would stick to the same diet and continued to make and eat a nutrient dense diet. I really haven't reintroduced anything and around day 35 or so I started feeling very bad. Ive had terrible abdominal pain from my stomach to my belly button, the feeling of food sitting in my stomach, bloat and then I started feeling very nauseated. After a few days of the abdominal pain and vomiting I got HORRIBLE diarrhea. I cant say I've ever had this in my life except when I had a bowel prep for my endometriosis surgery. I went to the Dr and they just assume vomiting and diarrhea is stomach flu. I got nausea pills and an anti inflammatory but 10 days later I still have HORRIBLE abdominal/belly button pain/burning and gas like pressure especially mid day. I added a good whole grain bread to up my carb intake and add fiber which helped with the diarea but not the gas/abdominal pain. . TMI even though the but Ive also noticed un digested salad in my stool. It feels like terrible indigestion though Ive never had digestion issues. This HAS to be diet related. Help!! Do I give it more time? The Doctors dont seem to know what to do or how to approach it with the whole 30 diet. Should I be worried?
I am now on Day 29 and what should be the best days of Whole30 but it's actually been the worst. Starting on Day 24, I started having pretty uncomfortable lower abdominal pain/pressure and bloating and it hasn't gone away for the past 6 days. I know it's more common to get digestive issues earlier in the Whole30 journey but I actually breezed through Days 3-23 with absolutely no issues and great energy. Troubleshooting led me to evaluate that most of the fruits & veggies I have been eating during Whole30 are high FODMAP foods. I would eat these almost on a daily basis: mango, apple, sweet potato, cauliflower rice, asparagus, mushrooms, garlic, onion, avocado, and uncooked greens in salads. Now I've tried following a FODMAP diet in addition to Whole30 these past 3 days and also added a probiotic, but it hasn't seemed to help and I'm still experiencing that constant lower abdominal pain. I've never had any digestive issues or foods that I've reacted to in the past, so my biggest fear is that the Whole30 has created a food sensitivity for me and that it will not go away. Has anyone else experienced anything similar? Any advice? Separate issues but I also started Whole30 as a way to alleviate seasonal allergies but today I've had the worst allergy attack in months. My energy is lower than usual too, even lower than before Whole30, so I feel like I'm progressing backwards and don't understand why...
