  1. Hi friends, I just recently started the Whole 30 Diet about a week ago and it has been good, however I have been experiencing some pain and cramping in my lower abdomen and in my lower back, as well as being fatigued often. I got diagnosed with endo and IC about 2 years ago and have had two surgeries. I was wondering if any of you with endo and/or IC have experienced some pain/fatigue/cramping once you started the Whole 30 diet? My pain isn't to the point where it is crippling, but it is definitely hard to keep up and I am debating whether or not I should modify the Whole 30 diet or stop it all together? I am contacting my doctor on Monday to consult with him, but would love any feedback/advice/testimonials from the Whole 30 community! Thanks Haley
  2. I'm in an exercise class that meets 4 days a week and does pretty intense sessions and some part of my body invariably cramps at some point but last night it was the worse ever. my NECK was cramping! I didn't even know that was possible. My trainer suggested that I might not be getting enough salt. How do I know if I am? I have never been a huge salt person but I do use salt in every meal - on eggs, in the food that I cook etc. I don't ever crave salt though and I'm not attracted to salty food. I don't want to add more salt if salt is not the problem (my family has a history of hypertension) but how do I know if I'm getting enough?? p.s. I'm drinking usually about 3 liters of water a day and I'm about 260 lbs. I pee all the time so I don't think I'm dehydrated but maybe salt isn't the problem but water is? Ahhh!!! *headdesk*
  3. I am on day 16 with whole30 and I am more inflamed than I have been in the last 6 years. I have celiacs, and when I went gluten free in 2010 I reduced my inflammation greatly. I had less menstrual cramping, and less acne. I used to have ganglion cysts in my hands. Now all of these symptoms are back. I have ganglions in my hands, my menstrual cramps are terrible, I am breaking out all over my face (little raised bumps on my cheeks), as well as white heads on my forehead and chin. Has anyone else experience this? Is this a "gets worse before it gets better" scenario? I'm ready to give up.
  4. Hey ya'all. I am on day 15 of the whole 30. A few days before starting, both my husband and I got this sort of like stomach virus or something where we had painful diarrhea. It lasted about a week (for him). I started Whole30 and thought the looseness and cramping were still residual from the stomach virus, but its been about 20 days. I wake up and have my coffee and within about 30 minutes, I have to go. It hasn't been solid since I started Whole30. Prior to, I was pretty regular and before the tummy virus, I was pretty solid. I don't have diarrhea, but its painful. Cramping etc. Appears some undigested food in stool and it smells wicked (sorry- just the facts man). It seems to happen in the morning and also right after meals, sometimes before I'm even done with the meal I start to cramp. I am also bloated. I am not weighing but my stomach seems distended and my pants are tighter. I am not sure if I am having more calories than usual since I am not counting per the instructions. My guess is I am not. I do notice when I am under extreme stress I get painful cramps and usually have to go. Before whole 30 I did a paleo diet and was pretty strict. So the main difference is now I have cut out the paleo treats like coconut flour bread, stevia sweetened drinks and excessive grazing between meals. My diet is pretty consistent: Breakfast is eggs, avocado and veggies (squash, onion and spinach) sautéed in ghee. Lunch is usually steak or porkchop with salad. Dinner is steak or burger or chicken, broccoli, sweet potato. I try not to snack, but when I do, I have a banana or some pecans or almonds. I drink some almond milk or almond water to calm cravings, which have all but gone away. I am on a very low dose of wellbutrin. I should also note a few other things. I am trying to recover from adrenal fatigue and my immune system is just shot. I take the pig adrenals but I suffer from frequent (as in once a month) illness (flu, colds, respiratory and sinus infections, sore throats, etc). Because of this, its been tough for me to get into a consistent exercise routine. While I don't know much about IBS, as I said before, typically I am solid and regular unless I am under stress. However, this 15 day stretch is extreme. I never have 15 days of straight toilet misery. I started drinking some psycillium husk thinking maybe that would firm things up. It has not. I used to track all my meals on my fitness pal but stopped since the book suggests not counting or tracking or weighing. So- any help or ideas is really appreciated. I am feeling discouraged. Thanks everyone.
