Anna Howard Posted July 3, 2012 Share Posted July 3, 2012 My fiance and I are starting our second ever Whole30 on July 9th. Our first one was fairly disastrous for me, I actually gained weight and inches to every part of my body. I assumed this was because I was still healing from my diagnosis of Celiacs disease, I am seeing my doctor again this week because of some other issues which unfortunately point to systemic lupus but nothing is for sure yet. My fiance insists if I want this Whole30 to be a better experience I need to do something different so I read It Starts with Food and was distraught by their extra recommendations for people with autoimmune conditions. I'm willing to cut nuts, dairy, and their other recommendations except for two things: I love eggs and tomatoes. Frittatta is also the easiest possible Meal 1 food for me because I can make them in advance heat them up in the morning and then eat them with some coffee and maybe a little pre-cut fruit. (I'm a public school teacher and I head to work around 6:45 after working out). One stop shop. We're big curry eaters and I can't imagine being able to live successfully on this diet without curry. I've never shown any sign of having problems with either of these foods, do I really need to cut them? Also, is coconut considered a nut? If I cut nuts do I also have to cut coconut and all it's adjoining products? I'm a little confused about all this but I'd love to actually see some results this time around.
