    Bloated, nauseous and on my period

    So I’m on R1D6 and since about day 4 I have been bloated, nauseous and constipated. I started my period on day 3 so I’m not sure if it’s my period or doing Whole 30 but I’m miserable. What can I do to alleviate this awfulness?
  2. I've read a million topics on this but am still confused by my whole30 experience so far...the first two weeks I experienced none of the negative effects (no carb flu, no 'kill all the things') and felt incredibly lean, as if I could physically see chronic inflammation subsiding in my stomach, arms, and face. However, the past 10 days I have had awful on-and-off bloating and generally feel like I look exactly as I did on day 1. I'm discouraged, especially since I was so excited about my progress at the halfway point! I keep psyching myself out thinking I'm eating too much or just "doing it wrong". Would love any advice or encouragement--here's some background and food info: - I'm 5'9", ~150 lbs pre-W30 with a good amount of muscle, so I'm not expecting significant weight loss. - Currently training for a 1/2 marathon, running short to mid distance ~3x a week and doing HIIT/strength training ~2-3x a week. - I generally get 7-8 hours of sleep a night and energy levels are typically good. - Throughout my whole30 work has been much more stressful than usual due to upcoming deadlines for a big project I'm managing. I've noticed my stress response is much more pronounced than I'm used to (crying, shaking, splitting headaches etc), and I think this might be related to me not using food as comfort in difficult situations...so I guess it's a good thing? But still odd. Sample food logs: (I workout @ 6:30 am, breakfast directly after @ work -- I've tried preWO protein and can't stomach it) M1: slice of frittata with sweet potato, spinach, chicken sausage and ~2 eggs, 1/4 avocado, 1/2 cup blueberries, 1 cup coffee M2: 6-8 oz roast chicken, raw pecans and 1/4 sliced apple on mixed greens with balsamic dressing, rest of the apple with ~2 tbsp almond butter M3: zucchini noodles from 2 zucchinis, 1/2 almond meal crusted chicken breast, 2 fried eggs, all cooked in coconut oil M1: 2 hard boiled eggs, 1/2 roast chicken breast, 1 big sweet potato with 1 tbsp almond butter, 1 cup coffee M2: Curry chicken salad with homemade mayo + chopped mac nuts on mixed greens, apple with 2 tbsp almond butter M3: 4 egg omelet with 1/2 roast chicken breast, 1 cup broccoli, guacamole, salsa, and 1/2 cup plantain chips I know the daily apple and almond butter could be a red flag, but I had no issues with them during the first two weeks of whole30 and find that they completely eliminate my need to snack between 12pm lunch and a 7pm dinner, which is miraculous as I used to put away 1/2 a family sized bag of kettle corn, a few oreos, and handfuls of swedish fish around 3pm on most work days... Anything stand out that might be the culprit? Or is this inflamed, day-1 feeling just part of the process for some people? Thanks!

    Day 15 and still struggling

    I’m half way through my first round of whole 30, and still struggling with energy and bloating. Does the energy ever increase? Does the bloating ever disappear? I was hoping to figure out what foods cause bloating but it seems everything I eat bothers me. I’m committed to all 30 days but not really seeing benefits yet... Any advice from someone who has been there?
  4. In need of some help! I have read through several forums already and I have done the things that most are recommending. Here is a little about my situation. We are on day 15 of our second round of whole30, and I have dealt with constipation chronically (on and off). I thought that this would help and the first round it actually didn't seem to be an issue. This time around is a entirely different situation; major constipation, bloating and a lot of gas (such a fun topic right?!). I had my gallbladder removed a few years ago (biggest regret). So I am unsure if that is the problem - just looking for some advice from anyone who maybe experiencing something similar. I am drinking plenty of water, taking magnesium supplement and a digestive enzyme. My energy level is great - but sleeping is on and off - mainly due to constipation. HELP!

    Day12 help

    Hi! I'm on day 12, and would love some encouragement and guidance! I know everyone's whole30s are different, but it is discouraging that most people are starting to feel a lot better on day 12, and I'm not quite there. Brief summary of my whole30 so far. Days 1-5 I felt awesome. My headaches were gone, I had no stomach issues, and I felt really motivated and great. Then day 6 and 7 hit and on and off since then I've felt bloated and just had some stomach pain in general. I hate some loss of appetite, but continued to try to stick to the meal template as I've seen suggested. Appetite is back, so that's good. I ate a lot more avocado and guacamole those first few days so I thought maybe the big increase of that was messing with my diet so I tried to cut down on that. That didn't eliminate the stomach pains altogether, so I'm trying to limit my avocado/guac to one meal a day. Day 10 I had a really hard day and night, as I know can happen. I got so worked up and anxious about the fact that my stomach was hurting that I went into sort of a tailspin and had a panic attack. Day 11 I felt a lot better; no cravings and no stomach pain. Today, though, which is day 12, my stomach issues are back. For an idea of what I've been eating: M1: 3 eggs scrambled, sautéed kale, sweet peppers, onions, chicken sausage. Sometimes with guac, except for the days I was trying to limit it to see if it was affecting me or leftovers (like meat sauce, steak, grilled chicken) over roasted white potatoes with veggies (green beans, cauliflower, noodles) M2: Mostly salads with either tuna or chicken on them for protein, sweet peppers with guac, hard boiled eggs, carrots or this week: white chicken chili, salad, carrots M3: pork chops or steak or grilled chicken (like 1.5 palm sizes), >1.5cup of roasted or sautéed veggies (ex: cauliflower, green beans, asparagus, zucchini and squash, mushrooms) I haven't been snacking much, but if I do I've been having seaweed, or following the template of having protein and fat so having some compliant deli meat with guac or mayo. I am very motivated to carry on until day 30 but it would be great to hear from people who have experienced this sort of flip-flop of the first 5 days or so being easier than the next 5 or so. Maybe my "hangover" phase was delayed until now? Before whole30 I was eating good for about 4 or 5 days and then honestly "treating myself" a little too much with some candy here, some chips there. Any advice would be welcomed!! Thanks in advance!
