I am on Day Two of my Whole 30 today. I've never done a complete Whole 30, but I have done it for two weeks at a time here and there and definitely liked how I felt. My husband and I have been trying to conceive for about six months and I thought this might be a good way to clean out my system. I looked at past topics and didn't see any recent topics about fertility. Just checking in here to see if anyone else is doing Whole 30 while trying to conceive or if anyone has had recent luck from doing it. Could use some encouragement! I did one round of letrozole last cycle and will start my second round next week. So far, the Whole 30 has been OK, but I have been super hungry today. Looking back at some other posts leads me to believe I'm not eating enough. Meal 1: two soft boiled eggs, handful of wilted spinach, 1/2 baked sweet potato with ghee, black tea Meal 2: two compliant chicken sausage links, with one onion and 1/2 bell pepper sauteed in coconut oil. STARVING this afternoon and had several pieces of fruit leather which I know is not good, but it's all I had here at my office. I guess I need to be more prepared for the office.
My husband and I have the ultimate whole 30 success story! The MAIN reason we even tried the whole 30 is because a friend of my younger sister's had been struggling with infertility for years and got pregnant immediately while she was on the whole 30 with no other fertility interventions. I'm 41, and my husband and I have been trying to conceive since last fall. In the past 8 months, I've been seeing an herbalist and acupuncturist, and cleaning up my diet in general (no dairy, no gluten, very little sugar). So my diet and health were already pretty sound. Then last month we did the whole 30, and two days ago we got a positive pregnancy test!! I'm THRILLED! At first, it kind of seemed like a shot in the dark, but my friend's success story inspired me to at least give it a try. Bingo!!! Not sure how exactly the Whole 30 provides such a fertility boost...I'd love to know more. I know it greatly reduces inflammation, but I think it is a hormone reset too? Anyway, we are so grateful!
