Kayla Posted June 17, 2013 Share Posted June 17, 2013 A little background: I started my Whole30 13 days ago to help with symptoms of my IBS, but felt I had to make a few changes to meet my personal needs. I thought these alterations were minor, as I followed recommendations from the book, but now I'm not so sure ... I had a brief discussion with a couple members in the "Whole30 with medical conditions" forum (http://forum.whole9life.com/topic/11207-ibs-friendly-breakfast/) about consuming a pure, clean whey protein isolate - just like the one recommended by the Hartwig's in their book - during my Whole30. I am eating it for breakfast, as I have IBS and don't stomach eggs at all really, as well I have a lot of trouble eating meat in the morning - I just get nauseous?! Thus, I was having a really hard time finding breakfast options that included protein, fat, and vegies - so I have been making a vegie-based smoothie (I know their not recommended either, but I really do find them filling especially when I drink a cup of tea right after) with the clean, pure whey isolate and coconut milk. However, I didn't sleep at all last night because I wondering/panicing if I am having these smoothies, I am truly on a Whole30? Or do I have to start over to reap the benefits? My stomach has been doing much better, in fact my only complaint is I have been backed-up for the past two days. So if I am feeling better, do I still have to crack-down? How bad are the potenially negative effects of a clean, pure whey protein powder? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
