  1. My period just arrived two weeks early even though I'm taking hormonal birth control. My period has been very regular for five years...I'm talking arriving exactly the same day and time like clockwork. Naturally this change is freaking me out. I'm on day 23 of the program and wondering if this is a common side effect? Could my diet really have such a huge effect on my menstrual cycle even while taking birth control? Any info or common experiences would help
  2. I’ve been struggling with cystic acne and was hoping that Whole30 could help. I started Whole 30 right after my last period and haven’t had any breakouts until the very end of my Whole30 when my period came back. This tells me that my acne is mostly hormonal considering I haven’t even started reintroducing foods yet. So my question is if there’s a compliant food that I’ve been eating that might be contributing to my hormonal acne? Does anyone have suggestions for dealing with hormonal acne and diet? I’ve literally tried everything and was really hopeful that by changing my diet it would help with my cystic breakouts.

    Bloated, nauseous and on my period

    So I’m on R1D6 and since about day 4 I have been bloated, nauseous and constipated. I started my period on day 3 so I’m not sure if it’s my period or doing Whole 30 but I’m miserable. What can I do to alleviate this awfulness?
  4. I'm on R1 D9. I take hormonal birth control to skip my period & I'm mid cycle on the pill right now. On Sunday (it's wed night now) I started my period and it's still going strong. I start school next week and am really hoping this stops before I start school. Does anyone know how long it takes fir your body to get used to the diet? Worst case scenario, if i eat dairy will my period stop?
  5. Hello. This is my first time doing Whole30. I have fibromyalgia and a gluten allergy. I am on Day 9. ALWAYS when I eat I get incredibly cranky, dizzy, and tired to the point of not being able to stand up. Since starting this diet ALL of those problems have gone away. I’ve had so much energy, I don’t get dizzy and cranky when I eat, and I haven’t taken any involuntary naps after eating. Until today. It’s come back and I’m looking for advice as I’m scared, because I was so relived everything was going well. For context, I haven’t slipped or cheated. Last night I ate out for the first time, I had unseasoned boiled chicken and green beans and broccoli at Applebee’s thought. Today my menstraul cycle started. And what I just ate was chili lime chicken breast Cobb salad recipe from the Whole30 instagram. 20 minutes after eating I got extremely dizzy and cranky. I got so tired I couldn’t stand. I had to lay down and legitimately fought to stay conscious and couldn’t. This hasn’t happened since I started the diet and I desperately don’t want it to start again because it’s scary. If anyone has been through this or has any idea what’s happening to me, I’d really appreciate the input. I was really happy being healthy for once. Thanks

    Mirena IUD and Whole30

    Hey everyone - this might be a weird and unrelated question but I have the Mirena IUD, and I haven't had a period in months. No bleeding at all. I started my Whole30 a little over a week ago and a few days in I had a period with fresh blood. I know irregular bleeding is something common with the Mirena but I thought it was weird that it would just start up again after months of no period. Has anyone else experienced this and think it might be something to do with the Whole30 eating rules/habits? Thanks!

    Heavy flow of period

    Hello friends, I am on day 16 of Whole30. Two days ago I got my period earlier (3-4 days) than anticipated. My flow has been so much heavier than usual. I even have some thick blood clumps that I usually don't get. There is definitely a change in hormones, that's obvious , but is this normal as this does not feel normal to me. Also my hunger has been crazy. Yesterday i ate breakfast at 8:30 and then again in two hours and again at noon feeling empty and hungry every time. My sleep has not been good either. I fall asleep but then I wake up , however in the morning I wake up fine with more energy than before Whole30. Could it be b/c of my heavy period? Any body knows what's going on? These past two days have been very trying for me. I am almost pulling the plug. A couple of my friends that have done Whole30 say that Whole30 actually regulated their periods .

    Exhausted On my Period

    So I've been doing great on the whole30 so far, by the end of last week my energy has been up, and my mood has been better among other things. I'm on day 14 and I started my period yesterday and today I am EXHAUSTED and Hungry. Just want to lay in bed, I'm physically weak and I just don't feel satiated. Should I be doing something different while I'm on my period?

    Never-ending Period

    I know there have been a ton of period posts but I can't find the answer I am looking for so figured I would try again. I did my first Whole 30 during January and loved it so much that I am still mostly eating W30 except that I have added back some hard cheese on occasion and a glass of wine once per week. My period while on W30 was incredibly heavy but on time and lasted for my normal 3 days. My second period in Feb was also on time and normal (much lighter). Then, 8 days after I finished my period (on day 11 of my new cycle) I started bleeding again (not spotting, actual bleeding) and it has been 7 days now and it's doesn't seem to be stopping. It's not overwhelmingly heavy, just normal period flow with light cramps. I have heard other people say this happened to them and they have on-going bleeding... but what I want to know is how long it typically lasts? Are we talking weeks? And does this typically happen just one time and then my cycles will become regular, or this will be an on-going issue if I try to stay on a modified W30 permanently? I have been to my OB recently so I highly doubt something new could be wrong with me, but I guess you never know.
  10. Hello, I am on Day 14, I've been carefully following the program and I have two issues I hope you can shed some light on. #1 I feel no different that before the program (my energy levels are consistent, my clothes fit the same). I would be OK with this, and hope the changes will come, if it wasn't for issue #2. #2 I started my period after 3 years of no periods/bleeding, due to my Mirena IUD. WTF? A little about me: Sample food day: Breakfast: egg casserole with bacon and sweet potatoes Lunch: spinach salad with strawberries/clementine/nuts and a hearty soup Dinner: chicken, roasted sweet potatoes and asparagus I work out 5 days a week, with one long run of ~7 miles. Before Whole 30 I ate healthy but had a big sweet tooth, so I started Whole 30 hoping to have better control over my sweet tooth long term and feel more energy / better workouts. I am feeling very frustrated, especially with starting my period. Thanks in advance for any insights.
