Help! I completed day 30 yesterday (yay!). I ate Whole30 today (minus a square of dairy-free dark chocolate) because I'm still having some issues that I want to solve before I reintroduce foods. The biggest one is acid reflux/indigestion. I had acid reflux pretty often before I started, and it's been less this month, but I'm still having problems with it. My acid reflux manifests as feelings of hunger and burping (and also some bloating), which makes things harder because when I feel hungry after I eat, I just want to eat more. I actually didn't burp very much before starting Whole30, but the first few weeks and this last week I've just been burping like crazy. It's kind of the worst! I also started having mild-moderate headaches the last week or so. I've been keeping a food journal, and I realized I've been eating almond butter/nuts and coffee w/ almond milk almost every day, and my worst acid reflux has happened a few hours after eating those foods. But some days I have no problems, and others I have really uncomfortable burping/reflux even w/ no nuts, etc. so I think there are other foods causing it, I just DON'T KNOW what they are. Very frustrating. I'm salting all my meals sufficiently (I think) and drinking enough water (at least 100 oz., I'm 146 lbs.). I get 8+ hours of sleep most nights. OH, and another problem: I've been really tired some days without really knowing why. Here are the things I want to try: 1. Staying Whole30 but eliminating coffee and nuts. 2. Not drinking with meals--I usually drink at least a glass of water with all my meals, and I guess that might cause poor digestion? 3. If no nuts/coffee doesn't do anything after a couple days, taking digestive enzymes with each meal. 4. If that doesn't work, using HCL w/ pepsin w/ meals to see if I have low stomach acid. 5. If that doesn't work... low FODMAPS? AIP protocol? Cutting eggs? I'm not sure what to cut. Any advice here? What do I do next? What can I try?
Hi I'm considering doing a second W30 (low FODMAPs). I've written out the list of high FODMAP food and I can recognise quite a few on there that trigger me. My question is - should I eliminate them all for maximum gut healing - or just the ones that I feel a reaction to? It's just that I'm worried about cutting out avocados because I rely on them as a fat source. I guess it's likely that if onion and garlic are making me really sick then even avocado is doing damage (even though I don't get symptoms).
Hello. So this is my third round of whole 30. Been pretty much paleo since March of this year. I've only messesd up no more than 4 days since then. As of today, I'm on day 17 since I started over. I've been doing paleo along with the autoimmune protocol. As of yesterday, I've also started the low fodmap diet because I really believe certain foods such as apples and cabbage give me problems. Apples burn my stomach and cabbage gives me bloating and diarrhea. I've researched acne online and a gentleman named Chris Kresser stated that what he usually has his clients do to try and help their acne is not only paleo, but following a low fodmaps diet as well as eliminating eggs and nuts. He did a podcast about it and was pretty thorough in it. You can read it here: http://chriskresser.com/naturally-get-rid-of-acne-by-fixing-your-gut I'm wondering if any of you have tried this as a last resort and have had success with it? I'm determined to find the cure for my acne! If it takes eating paleo/aip AND low fodmaps to do it, then so be it!
