Anyone out here who has done Whole30 that has no thyroid? I have no thyroid due to thyroid cancer and curious about others like me that have done it and their results/follow-up. I finished mine 2 days ago. I lost 0 lbs. My brother did it with me and lost 25 lbs and my husband lost 15 lbs. I feel no different at all. Was hoping it would help with energy and digestive issues. If anything my digestive issues got worse and spent quality time on toilet. Need to further figure that out. I'm pretty in tune with my body. I know Whole30 is good. But what about for people like me? Does it tend to affect us differently? Maybe it takes longer? I'm on thyroid meds to keep my levels suppressed so cancer doesn't come back. My 1st cancer was at age of 23 and had partial thyroidectomy. It came back anyway 12 years later and so then I had the rest taken out. Gained about 50 lbs with each removal. I'd love to lose 120lbs. Currently 5'4" and 250 lbs. I'd pretty much been eating about 80% paleo before Whole30. I'll continue on with Whole30 and may cheat every now and then with something but just curious about how it went with others like me.
FISHKID posted a topic in Troubleshooting your Whole30My husband and I just finished our first W30 and are in reintroduction. Our motivation for the W30 is bc I have one autoimmune disease, and only want to keep it at ONE, and my husband has allergies we are trying to alleviate. We both lost about ~15#, and feel great. However! We are from the "Diet for a Small Planet/Moosewood/Laurel's Kitchen" generation, and do believe eating low on the food chain is better for the planet and ourselves. How do you reconcile cancer research data (from "the China Study," for example, that shows cancer grows with increased protein intake, and shrinks when protein is minimized) with the animal protein intake of W30, and the eschewing of plant proteins? Really hoping to hear from folks who have pondered this and have opinions or insight or knowledge to share! THanks! (just realized this shouldn't be in this sub-forum...is there a way to move it?)
My name is Angel. A long time ago in a body far-far away I was a highly competitive ice-skater (from the Tonya Harding era lol!) I went to college on a full scholarship as Vermont's Junior Miss, got a Master's Degree in ten months, I can seem to conquer anything except my eating/fitness habits! I am 5'3 and currently weight 206 lbs. I am 8 lbs shy of my highest weight ever. Twelve years ago I lost 80 lbs in 5 months going to one of those pill dispensing medi-weightloss clinics. Although everyone around me said I looked amazing I felt awful, got sick all the time, lost some hair, and eventually put the weight back on. All 4 of my grandparents died of cancer and both of my parents have battled it. I am a time bomb! My stomach is constantly upset and I am sick of food making me tired instead of giving me energy. I have a great deal of head knowledge. I see so many people in programs like this being insanely successful in every way, but I cannot seem to slay this dragon. Being an "over achiever," I am perplexed by my inability to get a grip here. I teeter between "healthologies;" like weather to go cold turkey or make small changes over time. In general I make it about 3 days max 3 weeks before I find a reason to cave. I think about food way more than the average person. Literally, 100+ times a day.... what to eat, when to eat, what fun/yummy food centered thing is coming up. Is there a "addiction" line or am I just undisciplined? Any advice is greatly appreciated!
