  1. Hello, I am just about to start my first Whole30. I have Rheumatoid Arthritis and Ankylosing Spondilitis I have read other threads on this forum about people with RA who have found benefits from this diet change, but the threads are several years old. I would be very interested to hear from other people with Rheumatoid Arthritis or other similar autoimmune diseases to learn what if any benefits they experienced from being on the Whole 30 diet !! Thank you !
  2. My aunt is 77, and has had severe RA for almost 50 years. She's had several joints replaced (more than once!) and takes Remicade infusions. She also has a lot of trouble with allergies, sinus infections, and eczema. I have talked to her several times about Paleo (and plied her with books) , but she's often depressed and her attitude is "I'll just be this way until I die." Her diet has a lot of grains (toast, sandwiches). It is hard for her because she can do very little food prep with the condition of her hands. So, I'm planning on doing another W30 in Jan, and am considering planning/cooking all her meals for her for the month. She only lives about 8 miles away, but still, I'll need to plan things that she can heat/fix very easily and will keep for 2-3 days. That will be hard enough, but in researching I see that nightshades, eggs, and lots of other things are recommended to be cut for RA. I'm hoping for some ideas out there about: 1)foods that will work for "delivery," and 2)What might be a good balance between eliminating foods so that she gets some immediate benefit and more motivation, with not making is so strict that she gives up at the beginning. Also words of wisdom to convince her to even try! Thanks.
