  1. I am on Day 30. I'm doing fine with the eating and have noticed some positive changes. Good amount of energy, sleeping well, and the migraines I had been having for a couple months have gone away. Score! But, over the last 2 weeks I've developed consistent acid reflux. I have a burning feeling in my upper abdomen the majority of the It's not debilitating, but it is uncomfortable and I've never dealt with acid reflux or this burning sensation before. What gives? Giving my typical meals below: Breakfast - always either 3 eggs and 2 pieces of bacon (sometimes w/ 1/2 avocado) OR a hash with sweet potatoes, veggies, and compliant sausage/chorizo Lunch - Dinner leftovers or a salad with chicken/steak and homemade ranch Dinner - Grilled protein (chicken, steak, fish) with salad and roasted vegetables. Sometimes roasted potatoes thrown in. I mix things up occassionally and will do something like a stir fry or meatballs for dinner. But the pattern of food has been consistent for 30 days now. Any tips?? I'm scared to start reintroducing other foods when some the "good foods" i'm eating now are potentially the cause of this issue.
  2. I am on day 27 of my first Whole30 ever. I seem to have actually developed acid reflux while on Whole 30 and today was prescribed Omeprazole. Complicating this is the fact that I have a brain tumor in my nerve canal so my gamma knife surgeon asked me to see an ENT to determine if this was tumor related or something else. I don't have heartburn. I have a large lump in the bottom of my throat which won't go away and may actually be a complication of the tumor in the event that the gamma knife surgery did not work. But in the mean time going on an acid reflux med today. I am wondering if it's possible to develop acid reflux after starting the Whole30 and if there is anything that I might be doing that would actually start that problem. Are there things on the Whole30 that I should not be doing and might have caused the acid reflux? Does anyone have any experience with this? Is there anything I should be avoiding or adding that would help with this?

    Day 4 woes

    Hello Whole30 friends! Excited to be here! I am taking this journey with my Aunt, and we are both having uncomfortable jolts to our system (of course). We are on day 4 (understand there’s an adjustment period), and she is still having major migraines, and I still have terrible acid reflux. We’ve both had these for the past 3 days (day 1 was fine). Will these end soon? Does anyone have suggestions to help get rid of either of these things? Thank you!!
  4. Hello All! I will be starting my 4th Whole30 in January. It’s been about 2 years since I have completed a Whole30. In that time, I have completely reverted to old eating habits and about 9 months ago was diagnosed with GERD/ acid reflux. I had been controlling it pretty well, but in the last 6 weeks it has been terrible. I’ve been taking TUMS or Zantac multiple times a day. I know that tomatoes/ tomato based foods are a huge trigger and I avoid as much as I can. My question is—should I avoid tomatoes throughout my Whole30 and Add them to their own day during reintroduction? Also, should I avoid all nightshades? All acidic foods like citrus fruits? Thanks!

    Stomach attack

    I ate some brown rice, quinoa mix yesterday, just a little bit and I feel like I am being attacked! This was with a stir fry of chicken and veggies in coconut oil with curry powder and ginger, which I have eaten many times before. I immediately began to feel nauseous and had pain in my esophagus. Lots of burning and burping ensued plus my tongue was burning. I had previously take prilosec for a few years but quit after about a week of Whole 30 with no side effects. I did notice a little indigestion at night after reintro of sourdough bread a few days ago. So I decided that was out. But this attack is like the worse I have ever felt of acid reflux. I am not sure if I want to try anything else ever and I am not sure if this will go away. I took some digestive enzymes and a prilosec when it seemed like there was just too much pain. It is a little better this morning but I have not tried eating anything yet. What do I do now?
  6. I've been on prilosec for about 8-10 years now for my acid reflux. Last June I started developing a "lump in the throat" feeling. I tried some diet changes but nothing really helped. I got an upper endoscopy in November and they did find significant swelling in my throat but nothing super dangerous according to the tests. I saw a nutritionist and I told her about the Whole 30 (which was recommended to me by a friend). So, she suggested I try it. I'm 6 days in and I've been having more indigestion (and burping) than before I started the Whole 30. Before this my only symptom was the lump feeling in the throat. Now my friend who recommended the Whole 30 to me said that she takes HCL supplements on the Whole 30 since she's eating so much meat. Well, if I'm taking a proton pump inhibitor like Prilosec already should I be taking HCL? My goal is to eventually get off of prilosec and such, but its so hard. Any suggestions out there?
  7. Hi - my mom is on day 11 and has been complaining about her lower back (...maybe kidneys) bothering her. She also is more tired and has lost 8 pds. She has terrible eating habits, on meds for acid reflux and bad case of scoliosis. I am hoping this is withdrawal symptoms since I encouraged her to do this with me. But as the days pass I am getting worried it's something to do with this high fat, low carb diet. I told her to go to the dr and she agrees but wants to wait it out a little longer... Anyone experience something similar or have thoughts on what it could be?

    Hello, I'm currently on Day 5 of my Whole30. My primary reason for doing it is hoping to find relief from GERD, after really struggling to manage it the past few years. I've tried many things - too many to list - including cutting out certain foods, various medications including PPIs even though I was well aware of and uncomfortable with the risks, Betaine supplementation... a lot of things. I've been a lifelong vegetarian, and when I read the ISWF book, it made sense to me that perhaps my high carbohydrate/low protein diet messed up my gut bacteria and the way my body processes food. Honestly, the hardest part of Whole30 for me is eating meat, but I had started eating some chicken and fish before beginning the program and those are primarily the two meat sources I am eating except pork the other day for the first time since I was a young child. I also believe gluten has been causing me problems and hoped to see benefits of completely cutting it out. My doctor thought I should do that, too. I am still having GERD - it's pretty unchanged. I know I'm early in the Whole30, but I'm scared that the GERD won't go away. I'm probably a "problem case" because I've really tried many things these past few years (I was even still having it on a PPI). If there are any words of wisdom or encouragement on this front, I would certainly welcome them. One thing I realized is that I think I am still a little low protein and maybe too high in starchy vegetables. I've been eating a lot of sweet potatoes this week, which I really like. Perhaps I'm carrying over a bit of my low protein/high carb tendencies into the Whole30 even though I've been meticulous about making sure everything I do eat is 100% compliant. I plan to try to cut down on the sweet potatoes. Still, I just have the reflux a lot and am not sure how hopeful/worried I should be. I guess today I've been a little more worried that it won't go away since it hasn't changed. I've felt great in every other way since starting the program, though! Sorry for the long post. Caryn
  9. I am now on day 2 of my Whole30, so far, so good! BUT I suffer from GERD and besides Nexium I have usually been taking some Gaviscon to relief heart burn. Is Gaviscon okay to take during Whole30? I know they contain some no-no ingredients, but I am generally unsure of the rules on medication and pain relievers on Whole30. Thanks!
