Carina Clarke Posted May 29, 2013 Share Posted May 29, 2013 Hi folks, Most people are brimming with enthusiasm starting out on their whole30 adventure but I'm lacking the motivation. I'm kinda hoping I can get myself to the motivation as it doesn't seem to be coming to me. I've been low grade sick all my life and it came to a head last year when I fell apart. Anyways I discovered that I was non coeliac gluten sensitive and my myriad of illnesses disappeared (asthma, eczema, headaches etc etc) I embraced gluten free life and am perfectly happy on it. However, I stupidly added gf oats into my diet and it has slowly waged a silent war on my GI tract where I now have symptoms of brain fog and a nasty gluten rash grrrrr (not to mention my lack of enthusiasm for anything). So why did it take me so long to realise the oats were killing me. Well the hospital took out my gallbladder last year and due to a few different things happening at the same time I blamed the gallbladder removal on my GI issues. Seemed logical. Anyways, I'm officially starting on June 1st. I'm warming up today and I have a dinner out tomorrow night that was planned months ago. I haven't fully researched the whole30 but ill do plenty of lurking over the next 2 days and will be fully compliant by Saturday :-) This morn for breakfast I had grilled beef with kale, onion & bell pepper stirfried in coconut oil. Lunch was roast turkey salad with balsamic vinegar and dinner is going to be turkey stirfry. Apart from my woes, I'm a fit 34 year old mum of 3. I train everyday and coach kids athletics (resting at mo, due to GI issues and pulled hamstring). That's me. Carina Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
