Does Coffee cause an inflammatory response? It seems to be an irritant for all things GI, I don't see how it's different here if it causes problems for the intestines. If it causes an inflammatory response, why is it Whole30-approved? If coffee is a diuretic, and therefore anti-inflammatory, would the lack of coffee (i.e. as a withdrawal) create an inflammatory response in the body?
I completed the whole30 three weeks ago. Before I did this, I had gluten intolerance / wheat allergy for a number of years (please note I was not a coeliac). Since the whole30 program ended, I have eaten quite a lot of gluten products and I haven't noticed any terrible symptoms at all. I was skeptical that I would see any improvements to my body and digestive system after the whole30, I had zero expectations and therefore I was just sitting here and suddenly had a light bulb moment when I realised - hey, maybe my gut has actually healed itself. Maybe this 30 days actually did something! On a side note, I know the program allows coffee however I cut out coffee for the entire time and when I started drinking it again, I had side effects from the caffeine, so now I've had to remove coffee from my diet as it was causing rapid heartbeat and anxiety like symptoms until the caffeine left my system. Food for thought!!
