I am on day 10 of Whole30 and very excited about the program as this is my second attempt. The reason I chose to do it again is because I have a mild to moderate form of rosacea and I am hoping to better manage it, if not get rid of it through dietary changes. As of now, I have been taking oral antibiotics as well as a topical cream (once a day for both). My concern is that I am messing up the process of healing my gut because of the oral antibiotics. As I said, I am on day 10 and my rosacea has flared up worse than before but I heard that was natural when your body starts adjusting to the changes through detoxifying. Should I stop taking the oral antibiotic through the rest of the program and is it disrupting the healing process? Any advice would be appreciated.
Hi, I've recently just completed the Whole 30, no cheating! Yeah!!! I feel good, am excersizing a lot more and my mood is better. However, the entire time I was on the diet, I ate nightshades ( potatoes, tomatoes, peppers,) in some form or another at every meal and have experienced bloating, constipation and terrible rosacea. Wine used to give me rosacea, so I stopped. Ofcourse, stopped drinking alcohol and was surprised to see it got so much worse. My question is, if this is an anti-inflammation diet, why are nightshades allowed? I've recently read that they are inflammation inducing. Side question- caffeine is known to raise cortisol, the stress hormone which can cause belly fat. Why is that allowed on the diet? Thanks
