So I’m on day 7 and over the last 3 days I’ve broken out in hives. I have no food allergies and pretty much everything I’ve eaten, I’ve had in the past. Please tell me someone else has had this happen. It just seems to be getting worse and worse. I haven’t had any nuts, bananas or kombucha today which I thought was the problem but nothing has subsided. I also took 2 Benadryl and it didn’t help either.
Hi everyone, My doctor recommended I follow a plan for 30 days that is very, very similar to the Whole 30. Technically it is not "officially" the W30, so I very much hope it's OK that I'm posting in here! I'm eating only Whole 30 approved foods, though carageenan and soy lecithin are not forbidden. I can't speak to my doctor about this until my next appointment which will not be for a while. If I'm out of bounds posting this, feel free to delete. I started the Whole 30-ish with bad acne. It's been chronic since I was 12. Finally figured out it was caused by food choices. After a week on the W30-ish my skin was not perfect, but it was so much better and I was acquiring a "glow." I was so excited! Fast forward: I'm in week four. The program ends this Saturday. I have not gone off plan ONCE. As of 5 days ago my skin has been reverting to it's old appearance. It's red, uneven, splotchy, and I'm having breakouts ALL OVER my face -- including my typically clear forehead. I've never experienced hormonal acne or stress acne. It's always been 100% food-caused. WHAT is going on?! I have college homecoming next weekend and was looking forward to wow-ing everyone with my skin. Now I'm scared I'll have to cake on the makeup just like I did in college. Any explanations for this strange turn of events? xoxo
I'm seeking advice about acne! I've struggled with it over the past two years, and it's been labeled "hormonal". I have eaten pretty clean over the past three years, but I noticed very little difference in my complexion when I "cheated" and ate something full of dairy, sugar, or grains. However, I have never been as rigid and consistent as the Whole30 program demands. This led me to give Whole30 a chance to solve my skin problems. I would love to clear my skin naturally, without the use of drugs and harsh chemicals. One of the main reasons that I chose to venture into the Whole30 Program was because I read the success stories and saw that several people saw tremendous results and achieved clearer complexions with Whole30. The results are amazing!! I'm on my eighth day of the Whole30 program and it's that time-of-month. I noticed new breakouts two days ago, and since then, new breakouts are coming in daily. I believe that I can attribute this to the time of the month, but the breakout seems to be worse than it has been in the past. Prior to that, I noticed no skin-clearing results from my first week of Whole30. Does anyone have experience with Whole30 and hormonal acne? If so, when did you start seeing results? Did it get worse before it got better? Please share any tips, suggestions, or comments. Thank you, Caroline
