  1. Hello all - Looking for some advice, kind words, encouragement, whatever you've got. I completed my first (and best) round of whole30 in July. Attempted my second round this past January but had to end it a few days short of 30 days. I had a cold, which turned into an upper respiratory infection, which then turned into pneumonia. My doctor prescribed antibiotics and I was pretty devestated- feeling like a failure. I had to take them..2 1/2 weeks with pneumonia and I was getting worse. I started my 3rd round on March 19th - and this past Sunday I came down with the flu! I have NEVER been this sick, this long, this repeatedly in my LIFE. I want to continue on, but its hard. I want to feel the best I can, like I did on that first round..(tiger blood!) but its been a series of road bumps and obstacles. Does any one have any advice for me or have they experience anything like this?
  2. I'm a full week into the flu. Not a stomach bug, but the real nasty flu. I'm exhausted, but I've made it to day 19. I've managed to continue to cook for me and my family, but I am so tired. I made a big batch of chicken soup, but don't want to eat any more of it. Not really digging the pulled pork at this point. Oh, and if I want to stay on plan, I have to do the cooking. So instead of resting, I cook. I'm bound and determined to finish, I only have 11 more days, but ...Oh! did I mention that the microwave died too so any meat from the freezer has to be pulled out in the morning? Yep. I've hit a stumbling block and need help getting over it. Last night, the whole family got take out (yummy teriyaki takeout), and I had leftovers. Now lunch is here and I just want a big drippy messy Dusty Burger with fries. I won't have it because, well, I'm quarantined at home. Ice cream sounds great too. I just want to go back to work and I can't. Any suggestions for easy meals? BTW, I'm allergic to beef, so that's one protein down. thanks in advance
  3. I am in day 10 and getting the Flu. Is there any restrictions on over the counter meds, that I can use before I become a snotty, angry mess?
  4. Hi everyone! I am seeking advice about what I may be doing wrong or if my body just isn’t ready for the extremity of Whole30. I started the program for the first time back in 2016. I felt the normal symptoms of carb flu, but mine actually never went away. I attempted to eat as many clean carbs as possible to up my energy. I made it to day 23 and had a very high fever. I went to the doctor and tested positive for strep throat. I chalked it up as a coincidence rather than a result of the Whole30 diet. A few months later, I attempted again. This time I made it to day 3 and began to have very extreme symptoms of carb flu and a fever. This time I was diagnosed with the flu. I vowed to never try the program again as I truly felt it was not right for me. Going into 2018, I really wanted to give it another go. This time I only made it to day 2 before I could feel flu like symptoms. I currently have a fever of 101.7. This one feels like the flu again. Is it possible that Whole30 and my health are correlated? I am a pretty active person. I workout 2-3 times a week at a bootcamp style class and teach dance twice a week. I am thinking that maybe the drastic changes of the diet are sending my body into shock mode. Any advice would be great. Thank you!!
  5. I'm on day 26. My husband and I have been diligent in all things Whole30 (even during Halloween and so many gatherings). On Day 2 on I got a head cold but limited myself to tea, rest and some meds that contained no added sugar (super hard!). On Day 11, I came down with the classic flu but, again, avoided non-compliant meds. Now I'm in my last few days and I've had some sinus congestion/allergies for the last 3 days. I'm worried that my reintroduction will be meaningless because I don't know what my healthy body feels like over these 30 days. Should I just end it?
  6. I started strong and then came the stomach flu. I need suggestions to ease my way back into food. My normal go to foods in this situation were crackers, toast, etc. Ideas?
