  1. I finished the W30 like a champ, wasn't hard for me at all actually. I had already cut milk and was using almond milk, I had already been eating and using coconut oil and I love veggies. I basically just had to cut foods like corn, grains, dairy and sugar. I decided at 30 that I would stick to the same diet and continued to make and eat a nutrient dense diet. I really haven't reintroduced anything and around day 35 or so I started feeling very bad. Ive had terrible abdominal pain from my stomach to my belly button, the feeling of food sitting in my stomach, bloat and then I started feeling very nauseated. After a few days of the abdominal pain and vomiting I got HORRIBLE diarrhea. I cant say I've ever had this in my life except when I had a bowel prep for my endometriosis surgery. I went to the Dr and they just assume vomiting and diarrhea is stomach flu. I got nausea pills and an anti inflammatory but 10 days later I still have HORRIBLE abdominal/belly button pain/burning and gas like pressure especially mid day. I added a good whole grain bread to up my carb intake and add fiber which helped with the diarea but not the gas/abdominal pain. . TMI even though the but Ive also noticed un digested salad in my stool. It feels like terrible indigestion though Ive never had digestion issues. This HAS to be diet related. Help!! Do I give it more time? The Doctors dont seem to know what to do or how to approach it with the whole 30 diet. Should I be worried?
  2. Hello! My hubby and I are on day one of our first whole 30! Together we suffer from a wide range of moderately disruptive health problems. We have both always been the kind of people who plan what restaurants were going to eat at on vacation, instead of activities, etc! We are ready to change the way we think about food and our health. Especially for the sake of our 2 year old son. We don't want to teach him the bad food habits we have adopted! Any words of encouragement, or advice would be greatly appreciated! Thanks, y'all!
  3. Ok, so tomorrow is day 30, and for the past week or so, I have had some digestive issues while following whole30. I cannot figure out what is causing this because I am eating mainly the same exact foods I was eating during the first couple weeks (when I felt great). Any ideas on what could be the cause? I'm nervous to reintroduce anything before I figure out what is causing my current issues. Thanks for any input!
  4. Hello. I would like to share my experience with Whole30 and see if anyone is feeling the same as me. I have been compliant, however I have had a smoothie (with added fats) sometimes because I've been too sick to eat. I mostly had them in the first 2 weeks then stopped. Then I had one about 2 days ago as I was ill and could barely eat. I started whole30 as I have very severe fatigue and issues with dizziness and motion sickness. I had no digestive issues other than little episodes of gas like anyone, and I tended towards being a little constipated at times. Since day 4 of whole30, my digestion has been a mess and it gets worse and worse. The last few days have been 24 hour diarrhoea and stabbing abdominal pain like trapped gas. The diarrhea doesn't relieve it. Sometimes I go 5x a day. Also as far as my symptoms I started whole30 for, they are even worse. I am so exhausted I cry every single day and feel like my life will never regain any normality. I can barely go for a walk and work is torture. I was overweigjt but fairly fit before whole30 and could walk and jog. But I did have long term fatigue but I didn't feel like I was dying like this. I have been tested for lots of things and my iron dropped a bit and my thyroid stimulating hormone is a bit low indicating my thyroid is over functioning, but my thyroid hormone levels are fine and negative autoantibodies. I am seeing my GP, a naturopath, acupuncture, psychologist. Before this I had never even paid for a massage, but I feel I am having an extreme health crisis. I'm contemplating quitting my job and not getting out of bed anymore. I have no idea what is happening to me. The digestive issues have been the cherry on top and I fear they won't stop when I stop whole30. I've never had digestive problems like this. As I said, my meals have not been always perfect template (smoothies, sometimes skipping meals) as I'm so ill and doing what I can to survive at this point. I also do rotating roster shift work which makes my whole life hard and is part of my fatigue issues. But I try to follow recommendations otherwise and am eating plenty of veg, appropriate protein and plenty of fat from avocado, olive oil, home made mayo. I have stopped eating ghee, nut butter 2 days ago, as I never ate nuts before, very rarely. I've stopped having eggs apart from the bit of raw egg in my mayo. I was having a lot before, but I ate a lot of eggs in my regular duet too. I still eat 3 serves of fruit instead of the recommended 2, because my tummy wants fruit and plain foods, not fatty rich foods. Example of my common meals lately would be minced chicken breast and zucchini burger patty with roast potato/pumpkin, a salad and home made mayo. Or mackerel fish with pan fried potato hash brown patties (grated white or sweet potato) and a salad with mayo and a bit of hot sauce. Or beef chow mein style - cooked with cabbage, carrot, curry powder, garlic etc on top of sweet potato noodles. Always compliant ingredients and seasonings. I make all my own food. I never had an issue with hot sauces, curry powder or anything lije that before and mainly eat modified versions of what I ate before. Only other thing that's increased on the diet for me is root vegetables like potato, sweet potato, pumpkin, squash and extra use of garlic/onion powder for flavour. Whole30 has been such a bad experience, I feel like I'm having a physical breakdown. Has anyone else felt this and did you find the cause?
  5. My spouse and I are beginning the Whole30 on January 17th, so we're in the process of planning what our kitchen is going to look like and how our staple foods will change. One of the main issues we've always had is that she has some specific dietary needs. She deals with IBS regularly, and too many raw vegetables and fruit can be really unpleasant for her. She also had her gallbladder out about a year ago, although she has been able to reintroduce fattier meals at this point with very few issues, occasionally taking an ox bile supplement if she's worried. We're already prepared to cook vegetables to ease her digestion, and there should be no problem with the meat quantity as she's never had issues with that except for when her gallbladder started being an issue (again, that's no longer a problem). However! She has always relied on a heavy serving of carbs to help her feel full and keep her stomach from getting uncomfortable with extra veggies. Normally these carbs come in the form of rice, pasta, or breads. Well obviously that's not going to work! The next obvious choice? Potatoes. Potatoes look like they will be the easiest thing to add to our diet regularly for quick lunches and a compliant carb for dinners. And they are cheap, which is important as well if we are looking at getting better quality meats. But I wasn't sure if there was an issue with having too many potatoes, especially since many of the recipes have much less in the way of starchy carbs and focus more on the veggies and meats. If we eat, say, two potatoes a day (mixture of regular and sweet), would we still see the same benefits at the end of our Whole30? Or would we be adding too much carby sugar to our diets? Do you have any other suggestions?
