Hi! My husband has a genetic disorder called CPT2 Deficiency. Our understanding of the condition is that his body isn't able to swap from burning sugar for energy to burning fat for energy, during prolonged exercise (10 to 20 minutes) or stresses, like it is supposed to. When he does too much aerobic exercise, or gets cold, or sick, his body begins to breakdown muscle instead of fat and that results in muscle pain and weakness. We've been doing the Whole 30 for almost 4 weeks now, and his muscles have been tired most of that time. We had never considered how diet affected his muscles, but thought that exercise was the main trigger. Looking into diet suggestions for people with CPT2 deficiency, I'm seeing suggestions for low fat/high carbohydrate diets, since they get most of their energy from sugars. I feel like he should be able to eat healthy foods and still be able to accommodate his condition. Do you have any suggestions for ways to adjust the Whole 30 meal plan, or specific foods he could eat more of for higher carb intake? We've been trying to follow the Whole 30 meal template and focus on protein, veggies, and fats. Thanks for any suggestions!
Good Morning! Today is Day 1 of my second Whole30. I had a terrific experience during January and felt absolutely wonderful after 30 days. As reintro time rolled around, I failed to make solid decisions about what steps to take and found myself falling back into old habits! So here I am, back in March. I know that I can get through the next 30 days because I did it before. I also have the incentive to feel better again. I have Stage 4 metastatic breast cancer and have been on a fantastic healing journey. Much of the inflammation cleared up in Jan. with the changes I made in my nutritional plan. I want to get back to that terrific feeling of high energy once again. So my goals are: Continued success with Whole30 for 30 days Make definite decisions about reintro to be successful in transition Keep the good habits intact Read and follow Food Freedom Forever This is a terrrific plan for me because I respond well to accountability and the disciplined structure of the program! So very grateful for all!! Good luck to those who are "in my boat" with their own Whole30 objectives! All comments are welcome!
