Moderators SugarcubeOD Posted April 8, 2016 Moderators Share Posted April 8, 2016 I just signed up for the forums and I'm not sure how to start a thread so I'm posting my question here. I started Whole 30 due to many health issues like fatigue, muscle aches caused by fibromyalgia and osteoarthritis, asthma, environmental allergies, hypothyroidism, and IBS. I’m 53 years old, my weight was 162 pounds when I started, and my height is 5 feet 3 inches tall. I started Whole 30, 12 days ago and so far I love everything about it. However I suffered a shoulder injury prior to starting the program and because of all the other health issues I have I’m in severe pain. I’m going to physical therapy 3 times a week. I am not a fan of doing workouts but I love to walk. The doctor said I can only do some slow paced walks until everything is healed. Would this affect my progress? Is exercising a key to success in Whole 30. The book is great but it does not give any fitness recommendations. It actually assumes that everyone doing Whole 30 already has an exercise routine established, which is not my case. I’m starting to feel better pain wise and I’m hoping to get the okay from my doctor to start doing something soon. I would like some recommendations as to where to start in this area and what would be a good routine to follow. Thanks for your support! It's difficult for us to give you specific advice on how to workout or what to do... it all depends on your specific circumstances, which is why there is no recommendation in the book. What is recommended for you and your circumstances may be drastically different than what is recommended for me and my circumstances. You ask if not exercising will affect your progress and I'm unsure what that means. This is not a weightloss diet of any sort so if that's the type of 'progress' you're worried about, then I can't say because this isn't a diet. If you're talking about progress in how you feel, your gut permeability etc... then no, slow walking is fine and will not affect the healing. If you would like specific workout tips and a routine to follow, we recommend that you approach a personal trainer in your area that can work with you to develop a program specific to your needs.
