  1. Ugh! So I'm healthier than I've ever been, the most muscled and probably the lowest bodyfat, but now I'm so 'healthy' that my blood pressure is on the very low end of normal and I'm having symptoms like lightheadedness and feeling weak in the arms and legs. The first time it happened, I confused the lightheadedness with too-low carbs and I ate a fruit bun (I wasn't on a whole30 at the time but it didn't make me feel better). However somehow I've used this as an excuse to fall off the wagon in a major way, eating ice cream, chocolates and biscuits (cookies) as much as I like :-( The Dr took some blood this morning to see if anything major is going wrong, but he seems to be saying I need to just live with it. The only things he's advised at the moment are to keep up the exercise (when I can work up the energy to walk etc it has made me feel better), and to make sure I drink a couple of cups of coffee a day. I'm wondering if some 'electrolytes' might help too. Is there a whole30-approved electrolyte mix? Anyone else had this problem?

    Day # 50

    It is 50 days since I started whole30. I tried a single buttered corn on the cob for re-entry & it was yummy, but no need to repeat that. Used to have low carb ice cream every day, but none at all now. I drink mostly sparkling water with lime sections. I've had to half my blood pressure med 'cause pressure went too low. Stopped having constipation. I've never eaten so much vegetables & fruit in my life. Breakfast is commonly spinach, green bell pepper, onions, & tomatoes, 3 egg omelette. Very little coffee. Using salt more because you pointed out non-processed foods have lowered my salt intake. I'm sleeping very well, excercising most days with moderate weights & 2 mile walk. Lost 8lbs in 1st 30 days & plan on another weight at day # 60 to avoid weight dependent mood swings. So glad I overheard someone encouraging my friend to try whole30. He didn't, I did.
  3. I'm on my 2nd Whole 30, third attempt. I completed one in June. July has been hard!!! Anyways, going for it again in August. Now I restarted over sugar in coffee and I had one bread bowl at panera. Yesterday my blood pressure sky rocketed. I didn't even know it. I just happened to stop by a friends house and noticed she had a blood pressure cuff out. (She's a midwife) She took it for me and it was 168/109. I'm still on my medicine and a few weeks ago it was stable. Could this be eggs? Cholesterol related from more meat in my diet? Agggghhhhhh
