  1. Hello! Thank you for reading. I'm looking forward to your input. Context: I was at the end of the healing process for two bad ankle sprains (no surgery, same ankle, some bone damage, at-home physical therapy) that occurred within two months of each other. Within the last couple of months, I had been reintroducing cardio that depended on that ankle being solid again. HIIT/sprints, jogging, elliptical, etc, no trouble with ankle (though I am sooo out of shape).: Day 5, late, suddenly experiencing a LOT of pain in the same leg with the bad ankle. Hip-knee-ankle. Persistent off and on since. I know you want to know what I've been eating. Day 5 M1 - Ground beef, hard-boiled egg, tomatoes, avocado Day 5 M2 - Garlic butter chicken, greens, balsamic vinegar, another egg, blueberries Day 5 M2 - Salmon with herbes de Provence, asparagus Day 6 M1 - None (woke up with sore throat, no appetite) Day 6 M2 - Lemon Larabar, jalapeño beef sticks (on the road) Day 6 M3 - Salmon sweet potato cakes with tartar sauce and asparagus Day 7 M1 - Again none, sore throat Day 7 M2 - Three fried eggs, greens with tomatoes and balsamic vinegar Day 7 M2.5 - Several very thin slices of prosciutto Day 7 M3 - Leftover salmon sweet potato cakes and tartar sauce and asparagus I drink between 30 and 70 oz of water every day, along with about 20 oz black coffee. I also grew up loving nightshades and famously have eaten tomatoes like apples all my life. Any thoughts?
  2. I am almost 36 years old. I have always been very into nutrition and exercise. Reading about the healthiest foods and working out almost every day. Problem was, I thought whole grain toast with natural peanut butter was healthy and that fat-free Greek yogurt with fresh fruit was the perfect breakfast. I never could get as skinny as I wanted unless I starved myself. Yes, I want to be healthy, but I mostly want to be skinny! Five months ago a friend and I were talking about food/diet and she brought up the Wheat Belly book which I had heard about, but thought it must be wrong since everything I had studied stated that whole grains were extremely healthy. Then she brought up Paleo and told me of the results she had with it. I got home and downloaded It Starts with Food and Wheat Belly. I started the Paleo diet in the morning. A month before, I had been to the Orthopedic doctor to find a solution for my extremely painful knees. I have had three knee surgeries and as a former college athlete, years of jump training had left me with stiff and sore knees which had started to affect my workouts more and more. He only said the pain was a result of “Overuse.†I couldn't stop working out! Within three days of Paleo, my crippling knee pain was gone. I dropped weight instantly and the cellulite on the back of my legs went away. Amazing. I have continued to follow Paleo with a few indulgences… mainly wine or corn chips while out for Mexican food or gummy bears on a road trip. This month I decided to do the Whole 30 mainly because I want to challenge myself to go without wine! I signed up for the Daily Newsletter and can't wait to wake up in the mornings to read it :-) So far so good, and after 10 days I know I can make it the Whole 30.
  3. Hi everyone, I'm on Day 17 of my second Whole30, and feeling really frustrated with my progress. On my first Whole30 I was really bad about snacking, eating tons of fruit, and a ridiculous amount of nut butter, so I have tried to be conscious not only of the rules but of the guidelines this time around. I feel like I've been doing pretty well in terms of what I'm eating, but I feel awful. I'm tired all the time, my joint pain is worse than ever, and I'm still having daily headaches (I was hoping the W30 would help with the headaches). I do have fibromyalgia, migraines, and depression, so none of this is exactly new and different, but I really saw good results by this point last time and I'm so frustrated that it somehow seems worse this time around. I have a doctor's appointment this week for the headaches, but it would be nice to get some feedback on what I could be doing differently. Here's my food log for the last few days: Sunday Pre-WO - 1 hard boiled egg + a (very small) handful of walnuts Post-WO - Shredded sweet potato and zucchini fritter (about the size of my palm) M1 - roasted brussel sprouts (2 cups) with 4 oz. chicken apple sausage and 1 egg M2 - Palm-sized chicken breast with steamed green beans (2 cups) M3 - Carne asada (a little larger than palm-sized portion) with 2 cups of salad greens (arugula, spinach, and kale), salsa, and guacamole Monday Pre-WO - 1 hard boiled egg + a (very small) handful of walnuts Post-WO - Shredded sweet potato and zucchini fritter (about the size of my palm) M1 - roasted brussel sprouts (2 cups) with 4 oz. chicken apple sausage and 1 egg M2 - leftover carne asada with salad greens, salsa, and guacamole (same portions as last night) M3 - Steamed mussels (10 or so) with roasted zucchini and mushrooms (about 1.5 cups) Tuesday Pre-WO - 1 hard boiled egg + a (very small) handful of walnuts Post-WO - Shredded sweet potato and zucchini fritter (about the size of my palm) M1 - roasted brussel sprouts (2 cups) with 4 oz. chicken apple sausage and 1 egg, 1/2 C strawberries and blueberries M2 - Paleo meatballs (equal to a little over palm-sized) with W30 approved marinara sauce and 2 C salad greens, about 1/2 C of carrots M3 - Chicken apple sausage (4 oz) with cauliflower mash (1 C) topped with a tablespoon of coconut oil Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!!
  4. So, I began my whole 30 23 days ago. Week one was easy (minus the cravings for a couple of days) and I felt good. I have noticed weight loss, and looser clothes. However, since midway through week 2, my knees have become very inflammed, stiff, and it is hard to walk after I have been sitting or laying for more than a couple of minutes. My elbows are also a little stiff I even eliminated nightshades from my diet once this began, and that was over a week or 10 days ago, and still the pain and immobility is here. Background: I am 29, male, and have never had any knee issues, joint pain of any kind. My diet was exceptionally bad for an extended period of time before beginning the whole 30, so I just assumed that this was my body reacting. Along w/ the sore knees, every morning when I get up (since week 2), my arms will be broken out and splotchy as well. I'm not really sure what to do. I began taking Fish Oil Capsules 3 days ago, and my knees are a little better than they were at their worst (about 7 days ago). Any thoughts on what could be happening and why, and how to help this go away would be AMAZING! Signed, A confused newbie trying to stay the course.
  5. So I posted in another thread at the beginning of my current whole 60 about my stomach issues. Basically for the past 6 months I've been having stomach aches, stomach cramps and pain and diarrhea almost everyday. I also have nausea quite often. I think its a result from the antibiotics I was put on for a UTI because it all started after that, but the doctors cant tell me whats wrong with me. I've had an endoscopy, went gluten free for 7 weeks this past summer and had bloodwork and an ultrasound done. It has improved slightly since the beginning but hasn't improved any more since I started my whole 60. I am currently on day 34 of 60 with no stomach improvement. And this past week I've been having headaches and joint pain and my face has been breaking out just as much as when I'm not on whole 30 and my period was nightmare (but I understand thats pretty normal for periods to change and go a little crazy with the whole 30). I'll usually have a couple of good days and then a couple of bad days. I've been keeping a food log but still can't pin point problem causing foods because it never seems to be the same foods that give me a stomach ache. I'm also trying not drinking with my meals, only between and I've been pretty good about that this past week. For my stomach, I have added a daily probiotic in the last 2 weeks. And for about a week, I've cut out nuts to see if that caused it because before whole 30 I never ate nuts (except for peanut butter but thats not a nut), but I'm still having problems. I also bought a sample pack of chewable enzymes (bc I have problems swallowing pills :/) but I dont know if they are doing anything. I just started that a couple of days ago. I might have to suck it up and try to swallow capsules but I don't know which digestive enzymes to get :/ For my headaches, I've been making sure I drink enough water but I know I always do. I've just been keeping better track of it. Today I've already had 9 glasses of water and I know I'll probably drink another 2 before the night is over. But with all that water, I currently have a headache. And I hardly ever drink anything else...other than water, I've had one green tea, one decaf coffee and one kombucha in the past 34 days. For joint pain, I dont know what to do. I've always turned to my vitamin supplements and that has always made it go away but they aren't whole 30 complaint because of the glucose, fructose, and stevia leaf extract. I've been having joint pain in my left elbow, left shoulder and my knees. I teach dance so I need my joints to be working good So any advice on what to change or do would be greatly appreciated! Here is my food log from the last couple of days. Day 1 Breakfast: Mini quiche muffins (egg, turkey bacon, peppers, onions, spinach) and avocado. green tea Lunch: applegate hot dogs with mustard and broccoli Dinner: Roasted Cauliflower, avocado, ground beef with tessa maes bbq sauce. Day 2 Breakfast: sweet potato hash (sweet potato, onion, apple, sausage, spinach) and one fried egg. Lunch: Applegate hot dogs with mustard and carrots sautéed in coconut oil and seasonings. Dinner: Romaine lettuce salad with carrots, avocado, tuna and for the dressing just olive oil and balsamic vinegar 2nd Dinner because I was hungry again and the first dinner was early: Hamburger patty with mustard and sauerkraut (the refrigerated kind) and an apple. Day 3 Breakfast: 2 fried eggs and an apple Lunch: Tuna and homemade mayo, carrots sautéed in coconut oil and seasonings. Dinner: sweet potato hash. Today Breakfast: sweet potato hash Lunch: tuna with homemade mayo and carrots sautéed in coconut oil with seasonings.
  6. I have dealt with tendonitis and joint pain for years. I just completed the whole 30 successfully, and was shocked to see my tendonitis and joint pain disappeared. Since it ended, i have had a small amount of dairy, wheat, and a handful of potatoe chips. (only a serving of each, my stomach disagreed each time.) Aside from digestive disagreement to these foods, are anyany likely to trigger inflammation outside the digestive track? I have family saying it's just a fluke, but it went away within a week of eliminating these foods and came back within a day if reintroducing them. I love the idea of eliminating my pain and tendonitis and am curious which foods would be most likely to help. Thanks!
