Hi, I started this Feb 14 (thanks to a very sweet & helpful friend) to help recover from the unanticipated physical & mental stress results of a 4000 mi bicycle ride last summer. (ESCAA2018) It has quite taken the wind out of my sails; I've never been so unfit before. Complete Nutrition's fancy scale showed a 4% loss of muscle mass, plus bloodwork shows a continued low creatinine level....and a few other imbalances..The diet plan is quite close to how I eat normally, except for dairy of plain yogurt, kefir, cottage cheese, and goat cheese. I was not able to maintain anything close to my normal diet on the ride. My question now is how to get enough protein. Full disclosure: all red meat, pork, and chicken are completely off limits for severe allergy reasons. I consume turkey & wild caught fish, raw nuts, and (usually) dairy for protein. Ideas?
I am on day 13 of my second Whole 30, and I have realized I have a gallbladder issue. I am in near constant pain, made worse by eating. I've been reading about dietary management of gallbladder issues and how to avoid gallbladder removal. All suggestions are essentially a very low fat pescatarian diet. No eggs (!!!), no saturated fat. I was gluten free and mostly dairy free 6+ years before W30. I've read forum posts from people who have no gallbladder and have done Whole 30 successfully. I'm heading to dr tomorrow but want to be as well armed as possible - do not want to lose my gallbladder. In the meantime I'm hungry! I'm good with veggies but can't stomach fish 3x a day and not sure my gallbladder can handle the protein anyway. What to do? Quit the Whole 30? Looked at the veg option but the protein sources are still an issue. Is it really Whole 30 compliant if I am doing low fat and no protein?
