I finished my first Whole30 in late August and started the fast track reintroduction 8/23. Before W30, I had frequent upset stomachs; more nauseated stomach ache. This was one of the main reasons to try out Whole 30 During W30, and after, those stomach aches went away but now I'm feeling bloated and uncomfortable instead. It's been pretty consistent, and I'm doing my best to rule out/not eat things that may cause discomfort (beans/peanuts, peppers, cruciferous vegetables, etc). But it seems to be coming back left and right, and sometimes for seemingly no real reason. My grandmother told me that my great grandmother had issues with gas/bloating too, and she was often uncomfortable, but suffered silently. Now I'm wondering, has anyone else experienced this too? Frequent bloating, discomfort, feelings of fullness, forceful burps, just overall really uncomfortable? Could it be a genetic sensitivity to lots of things? Does anyone know a quick way to help alleviate these feelings of discomfort? I'm very tired of feeling this way. I'm constantly aware of my abdomen. I've already went to the doctor and checked everything possible. She believes it's just sensitivity to certain foods and through process of elimination, stop eating those things that make me uncomfortable. I try to maintain as much of W30 as possible, but not to absolute perfection (I've had sweets here and there, and put cold cereals back in my breakfast with almond milk, etc). I'm not very interested in hyper-analyzing my diet, because I am already doing my best to evaluate that myself. I'm just wondering how many others may experience similar issues, and any words of advice on that/ways to help cope with discomfort. Thank you!
Hi everyone, Today is technically my first official day of Whole30, but I used the last week to ease into it. Now, I'm not feeling great at all. Last week I ate mostly compliant. The non-compliant items I had was cereal (with almond milk), yogurt and 1/2 and 1/2 in my coffee for breakfast. I resisted sweets and cravings. One day, I had Tyson Chicken Strips for dinner but scraped off breading as much as I could. I felt mostly fine, just hungry a couple hours after eating. Compliant food I had was sauteed chicken, roasted bell peppers and onions, eggs, chia seed pudding, fresh fruit, etc. Yesterday (Day 0, if you will), the only non-compliant thing I had was 1/2 and 1/2 in my coffee. Otherwise, I had banana chia pudding with blueberries, an egg, a handful of nuts. Then I started feeling uncomfortable. Bloated, loss of appetite, a sort of pressure-feeling in my stomach, etc. I almost didn't want to eat dinner. I had some "Digest-Zen" essential oil in water and it helped. I was able to eat dinner (filet mignon, sauteed asparagus, and garlic roasted red potatoes, then later a bit of pineapple). I'd burp when I could, and it'd be the forceful, large burps (which I usually don't have). Overnight, I woke up at 3 AM really uncomfortable. I thought I was going to be ill but wasn't. I half slept for the rest of the night. This morning, (Day 1, officially), all I could eat for breakfast was a few bites of pineapple, a hard boiled egg, and some almond milk. I still feel greatly uncomfortable, mostly bloated, and still burping if/when I can in that forceful way, upset stomach, that pressure feeling is still there. I read about others experiencing similar to this on day 7-8 or so, sometimes halfway through. Since I eased into it for a week, could I be experiencing these things now? Am I eating more fiber than I used to? I'd appreciate any feedback or anything to help alleviate this. I would get stomach aches every now and then before trying this challenge. I was hoping Whole30 can help me alleviate those symptoms and help me determine what I can and cannot eat. Thank you.
