Hello, I'm looking for some help with my Whole30. I am a 27 year old female trying the program out for the first time after hearing excellent reviews from co-workers. I bought the book and was really excited and motivated to get my Whole30 started. I was aiming at losing some weight (I probably had ~5 pounds to lose), to improve sleep, to improve mood (specifically, to be less fatigues and unmotivated by 2pm in the work day), and to help with swelling in my lower legs (called panniculitis). I had pretty high hopes after hearing about the program and reading the first few chapters of the book. I'm currently on day 22 and I'd go as far to say that it's pretty much a disaster. I'll back up and provide some more detail. The first week was great! I felt excited, motivated, energized, and my pants were less tight! Around week 2 I started noticing some undesirable side effects. My acne (which isn't really acne... I usually get 2-3 pimples per month) was TERRIBLE. My skin was extremely oily and broken out all over. They ranged from small, hard pimples on my cheeks and forehead, to under the skin painful welts on my chin. I read on this forum that nuts could be doing this. So I decreased my nuts. I will mention that I am a pescitarian, so I don't eat poultry/beef/pork. I do eat fish, seafood, eggs, and dairy [when not on the Whole30]. So I cut out nuts and stuck with my other protein sources. I also started noticing my mood getting worse (sad, angry for no reason, unmotivated). So for this, I read on here to increase my fruit and starchy food...I ate more starches and fruit daily. My side effects from week 3 up to now is what motivated to seek help here. I am depressed, unmotivated, and a completely different person for the worse. I am SO agitated all the time (when people talk to me, I was to cry and/or scream), I'm tired beyond belief, the acne has not changed at all, I have a hard time staying asleep all night, and I haven't seen any improvements in my lower leg swelling. Oh and to top it off, I'm now experience bloating, constipation, and terrible gas (sorry, TMI) that I never experienced before my Whole30. Again, I've looked up most of these symptoms on here and I got info on the depression side; eat more starchy foods and fat...but I already am. As for the gastrointestinal issues, I'm at a loss; seems like the Whole30 foods are causing me issues that other people eliminate during their Whole30. With only 8 days left to go, I'm seriously considering blowing it off. For whatever reason, the Whole30 isn't working with my body.Here is a sample meal plan to help guide any advise that you may have. I really appreciate it. Breakfast - 2 eggs fried in EVOO, homemade hash browns with onions, and half an avocado with S&P (I'll throw in some fresh berries if I still feel hungry) Lunch - baked sweet potato, sautéed kale, and a fruit (usually an apple or banana) Dinner - grilled salmon, lemon garlic grilled shrimp, and roasted veggies with EVOO & balsamic Thank you in advance, I really appreciate any help
I am on Day 14 and I am experiencing uncontrollable anger and rage that is extremely debilitating. This is third day I have had like this while on Whole30, Day 4 and 10 were the other two, and I don't know what to do. I am irritable to the point that the smallest little things set me off into a blood boiling anxious state where I growl, yell, slam things around, and scream into pillows. It takes all of my effort to not start smashing stuff or put my hand through a wall. For example, a pair of kitchen shears fell of my counter into the trash can and I squared down and screamed because I had to wash them. It's a mentality that absolutely nothing can go right and the slightest annoyance or inconvenience is infuriating. This anger has nothing to do with cravings, the desire to eat or drink off plan, it really has nothing to do with that type of psychology. I have done stricter 42 day elimination diets that were accompanied by supplements and never experienced anything like this. I have tried natural calm, taking cold showers, eating more fruit, and taking a nap but it is so difficult to mentally pull myself out of it that I'm useless for an entire day. Has anyone else experienced this? It feels like a borderline panic/anxiety attack. If you have, did you find any remedies that worked for you? Could prescription medication have an impact? I am on 100mg Zoloft, 300mg Wellbutrin, 25mg Adderall XR and 15mg Adderall IR. Thanks.
I am on day 12 and just feel bitchy! I am snappy at work, angry at home, where is the joy? I was so excited about this eating plan and was so hoping that it would be the answer to my skin lesions, weight issues, thyroid and high BP (BP has been higher)! And I've been having restless legs at night and not sleeping well at all. I saw a post about CALM and will try that. I am also unable to just do three meals. Between lunch and when I get home to cook dinner can sometimes be 6-7 hours so I've been having a few pieces of beef jerky with carrot and snap peas or nuts and the same veggies. I welcome thoughts, ideas, a kick in the behind, I want to make it through the 30 days!
