Hello everyone, I need some help here. I have arthritis and am in a lot of pain. This is not working for me, yet. I have cut out dairy and grains, which I managed in a 10 day wind down. I did not eat poorly before, really, but had a real challenge also reducing the sugar. After TWO days of following the meal plan, my hands, feet and face were red, totally red. The problem: I am chronically ill with an autoimmune disease, various types of rheumatism. I was diagnosed in 2004 and have treated it well through dietary regulation and exercise. I don't eat much acidic food, no pork, little red meat, little nightshades and slaw. But these were on the menu the first two days in large amounts: 3 eggs for breakfast (instead on one, that I usually have), ground meat, squash, bell peppers, slaw, potatoes, tomatoes. After eating very much of these for three days, I am in a lot of pain and back on Ibuprofen, against pain and inflammation. Not good. I am trying to continue, somehow, and am trying to read about autoimmune with Whole30. Not easy... Any advice?
