I'm really looking forward to starting my first Whole 30 for January 2020! My doctor recommended it as a way to figure out what parts of my diet may be increasing my autoimmune symptoms. I did the AIP diet earlier this year but didn't experience any relief (because I was suffering from a second autoimmune disease which hadn't been diagnosed or treated yet). I would love to hear from anyone who has seen great success with their autoimmune symptoms by taking on the Whole30. My diet isn't crazy, but this will definitely be difficult after overly indulgent holidays, so any success stories will serve as great reminders for me when the going gets tough!
I'm starting Whole30 with my fiance this coming Monday. We've been preparing for a few weeks, trying out different milks for coffee creamer, practicing Whole30 meals, incorporating a Time Restricted Eating schedule, etc. I'm excited by all the good reviews, but also nervous. We've tried a few different lifestyles including AIP. We generally eat well, having learned so much with AIP. However, a mistake we seem to always make is staying consistent. We would get 2-3 weeks in and then reward ourselves with a pizza or Jack in the Box. I think that has prevented me from ever really seeing results in decreased inflammation. I'm hoping that by committing to Whole 30, along with a few other combined restrictions, we can finally do this. Completely. Without any falling off the wagon. Also, what about eggs? I dont think I have sensitivity to eggs, I love them. But I'm scared of wasting my time with this commitment only to find out 1-2 months down the road that eggs were a major culprit the whole time. But I also dont want to give them up if I dont have to. Do alot of Whole30ers with inflammation end up finding they need to cut out eggs? Also, can there be variability to reactions to nightshades? I've never noticed anything with tomatoes or eggplants. But I have immediate reactions to anything with chili powder, paprika, cayenne, or peppers. Unfortunately. My cheeks and ears get red and painful, and I start forming telangiectasia on my cheeks. Anyway, super excited about beginning this journey and joining this community!
