  1. Hi! I've been going pretty well and I am on day 19 today, and been feeling awesome on my Whole30, but for the past five days or so I have been waking up with a really puffy face and swollen hands. My eyelids have had intermittent hives on them throughout the program...that seems to have gotten better these past few days, but now it is replaced by swelling of my eyelids and the rest of my face. And my hands are puffy to the point that I can't get my rings off or even make a fist because my fingers won't bend all the way. Also, I know I have lost inches in my waist; I can see a drastic difference in my natural waist where it dips in. BUT I feel like my muffin top has gotten bigger. I feel like my stomach pokes out a lot and even my hubby commented that I seemed to be gaining in my belly even though my waist was a lot smaller looking. In all honestly, I feel like I look pregnant my stomach pops out so much. I'm wondering if this is a reaction to either coconut, eggs, fish, avocados or almonds. I have added in enriched almond milk in order to get more vitamin D, and two days ago switched to a coconut/almond milk mixture (Unsweetened Silk). I do on occasion have a handful of raw almonds, but I haven't in about a week (though I did have pistachios on the 23rd, which I've never really eaten before...but this all started before that). I have been eating a LOT of fish on my Whole30, and while fish has never bothered me before that I know of, maybe in bigger quantities it's having an effect??? I have been using a moderate amount of coconut products - I use coconut oil in a lot of my cooking, and I also use canned coconut milk but haven't for a few days. I have been eating eggs pretty much every day of my Whole30, but upped my intake a few days ago to three at breakfast instead of two. I have eaten eggs my whole life and never had a problem like this that I noticed, but maybe because I'm eating more eggs, more often it's showing up as an allergen? And I LOVE avocado...I have at least one a day on most days, and I try to get in more with my meals. Before the Whole30 I would occasionally make guacamole and that was the extent of my avocado consumption - maybe twice a month. Now I eat one or more daily. Again, is that something I should be suspicious of as an allergen? So...all that said, it may not even be a food allergen...but if it is, I would like to know. Should I cut out all these things at once or try them one at a time, or what do you all suggest to find out? I will post a few days of my meals...just have to go to my food log and copy them over.
