  1. I finished the W30 like a champ, wasn't hard for me at all actually. I had already cut milk and was using almond milk, I had already been eating and using coconut oil and I love veggies. I basically just had to cut foods like corn, grains, dairy and sugar. I decided at 30 that I would stick to the same diet and continued to make and eat a nutrient dense diet. I really haven't reintroduced anything and around day 35 or so I started feeling very bad. Ive had terrible abdominal pain from my stomach to my belly button, the feeling of food sitting in my stomach, bloat and then I started feeling very nauseated. After a few days of the abdominal pain and vomiting I got HORRIBLE diarrhea. I cant say I've ever had this in my life except when I had a bowel prep for my endometriosis surgery. I went to the Dr and they just assume vomiting and diarrhea is stomach flu. I got nausea pills and an anti inflammatory but 10 days later I still have HORRIBLE abdominal/belly button pain/burning and gas like pressure especially mid day. I added a good whole grain bread to up my carb intake and add fiber which helped with the diarea but not the gas/abdominal pain. . TMI even though the but Ive also noticed un digested salad in my stool. It feels like terrible indigestion though Ive never had digestion issues. This HAS to be diet related. Help!! Do I give it more time? The Doctors dont seem to know what to do or how to approach it with the whole 30 diet. Should I be worried?
  2. I felt a cold coming on and drank a Kroger brand essence-c without even thinking about it. I'm on day 13. I didn't have the box (with the list of ingredients), just the packet, so I didn't even think about sugar or fructose until I had swallowed it all. Tasted sweet and started freaking out immediately. Looked online, and sure enough, fructose is the first ingredient. ugh. Do I have to start over?? So bummed, I've done everything by the book. The even dumber thing is that I ate an orange right before I drank it, I didn't even need the stupid thing.
  3. So day 28 is finishing up for me which means I have two days left. At the beginning of this whole30 (my first time), I did feel little stomach aches now and again... nothing that seemed too concerning. I figured it was all the vegetables I was now eating. (I was trying a lot of new ones too! -or at least ones I hardly ate before: cabbage, butternut squash, spaghetti squash, beets, kale, swiss chard, etc.. At the beginning of today, I started to feel my throat sore. I cheated and had one honey-lemon drop (didn't help much so I didn't have anymore). Feeling a little feverish, I took some medicine, slept, and pretty much feel the same (but with no fever). I feel terrible/sick! About once a year, I tend to get "sick symptoms" but never actually get sick (I really rarely NEVER get sick). -Usually this happens because I get stressed and my immune system weakens just a tiny bit. 95% of what I've been drinking has been water (a gulp of pineapple or apple juice if a recipe calls for it). My meals are usually some kind of meat/protein with vegetable (cooked in fat: oil or clarified butter). I think during week two, I skipped a few meals because I was just so full! For snacks, I have apples, oranges, or approved larabars. I'm quite concerned about this because my day 30 is so close! I'm determined to go to the end... but I wonder... what about my re-introduction phase? I can't really re-introduce things if I feel sick? I might confuse symptoms! (was it because I am sick, or because I ate the bread?) I almost feel like I spent a month for nothing! D: (I really wanted to do this 98% correct and told myself if I decide to do it next time, that I'll know what other food groups upsets me and take it a little easier for myself) Also, I know it's not day 30 but I weighed/measured myself. I haven't lost weight (or gained) any, but I did loose an inch around my stomach! yay! I'm quite happy about that! I'm honestly not concerned with weight numbers but am very happy about the measurement on my stomach. ^^ Another thing: pretty sure I didn't catch this from anyone as no one around me (that I know of) is sick... and I'm on my 4th day of vacation, so I've been kinda isolated... Sorry for the long post/Thank you for those who read the whole thing!
  4. I started on the 13th and haven’t cracked. I’ve been pretty good. But this morning I wasn’t feeling well, so without thinking, I took my elderberry syrup like I usually do to feel better. I totally forgot to look at the ingredients. It has raw honey, elderberry, organic ACV, propolis tincture, echinacea purpurea tinture, grain alcohol and purified water. Do I really have to start over?
  5. I am very sick during whole 30. I am bloated and stomach sick every night after dinner. Days 5-6 I was sick and the last three days 14-16 I have been really sick though. Vomiting and bad diarrhea. Pure liquid out of both ends. I think it's linked to potato's and maybe FODMAP foods and maybe Cajun spices. It's hard to tell but both times I had eaten spice cod and potatoes before the sickness started. Any way I am feeling very discouraged. And I want to go back to my old foods still I won't be sick anyone. What can I try? What should I do? Will going to my doctor help?
  6. I'm a full week into the flu. Not a stomach bug, but the real nasty flu. I'm exhausted, but I've made it to day 19. I've managed to continue to cook for me and my family, but I am so tired. I made a big batch of chicken soup, but don't want to eat any more of it. Not really digging the pulled pork at this point. Oh, and if I want to stay on plan, I have to do the cooking. So instead of resting, I cook. I'm bound and determined to finish, I only have 11 more days, but ...Oh! did I mention that the microwave died too so any meat from the freezer has to be pulled out in the morning? Yep. I've hit a stumbling block and need help getting over it. Last night, the whole family got take out (yummy teriyaki takeout), and I had leftovers. Now lunch is here and I just want a big drippy messy Dusty Burger with fries. I won't have it because, well, I'm quarantined at home. Ice cream sounds great too. I just want to go back to work and I can't. Any suggestions for easy meals? BTW, I'm allergic to beef, so that's one protein down. thanks in advance

    Tums & Peptobismal

    Hi all- I'm currently on Day 23 and have been feeling great until today. I was not very hungry this morning, but forced myself to have a simple breakfast (eggs, bacon, strawberries). About an hour later I grabbed an apple because I was both hungry and not hungry at the same time, but have usually had apples in the past when I've got some nausea and they've helped. After that my appetite and energy took a nose dive. I laid in bed for 3 hours and couldn't imagine another piece of food. My boyfriend suggested grabbing me a cold pressed juice that has worked in the past for my tummy issues (which are very frequent). After drinking most of it, I took a shower and within 15 minutes ended up throwing up everything I ate today (even the breakfast from 8+ hours ago... they were still solid food items). Currently drinking fresh ginger with a little lemon and took out some veggie broth soup I had in the freezer. My boyfriend and family are suggesting I also dose up on some medicine (specifically peptobismal). I want to stay on track, cuz i've been feeling great and have been looking forward to a slow re-introduction period, but I am also a professor and may have to teach 3 classes tomorrow. Any suggestions on if this is okay or not and if it's okay, are there preferred kinds (i.e. liquid/non-cherry over tablets). I saw tums was not approved, but then saw a peptobismal post where it seemed kinda iffy. Thanks!
