MRiver Posted February 10, 2014 Share Posted February 10, 2014 The one food I thought might challenge my compliance on the whole 30 was dairy. Cheese, plain yogurt, the occasional ice cream. I've never been slave to sugar or baked goods, and have been grain free off and on for a few years. But Dairy..... The good news is I had no problem avoiding dairy during my 35 days of whole 30 eating. And I loved those 35 days enough to stay committed, but I definitely see the wisdom in the reintroduction protocol and chose to begin it yesterday. My slice of gorgeous english cheddar yesterday posed no noticeable problem. But my slice of same cheddar with breakfast hit me like a ton of bricks. I am fog brained, listless, unmotivated, and just plain tired. Unexplained fatigue has been my only consistent health issue, and one I have suffered since childhood. Then last year, after a particularly stressful/traumatic three year stretch, I was found to be hypothyroid, adrenal exhausted and anemic. Medicating / supplementing has made a huge difference, but the whole thirty was like the final piece of the puzzle. And now at least one of the food culprits is confirmed. I already know I react to gluten in this way. I call it the "eat a bagel, go to bed" syndrome and self diagnosed as such many years ago, although I didn't understand the science or the far reaching applications at the time.I am curious about the fatigue response - does anyone have any nfo about this? All I can find about possible dairy reactions are g.i. issues, skin and joint inflammation, and sinus stuff. Is this fatigue a symptom of systemic inflammation? If anyone can point me toward the science I would be grateful. Thanks in advance. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
