h e a t h e r Posted February 11, 2014 Share Posted February 11, 2014 I just finished an AIP whole 31. I chose to do the autoimmune protocol because I am overweight, hypothyroid and battling inflammation. I had some struggles during my w31 with menstrual cycles, pain in my right side and a cold. I never reached a tiger blood stage, but I got better sleep and woke up with more energy, my thoughts were more focused, I feel like I am getting more done, and I even lost a few pounds. Maybe I should have gone longer, but since this is my first one I figured I should try to reintroduce some foods while I still had the good momentum going. I do plan to do another whole 30 in the summertime. I think I am dealing with a leaky gut. I have many environmental allergies and food sensitivities and never feel "great". It makes it tricky to read my body. On my previous attempts at elimination and trying to figure out my food sensitivities, I was constantly second guessing myself and sometimes couldn't tell if I was imagining symptoms. I started taking enzymedica digest (digestive enzymes) with each meal starting on day 28. I have been gluten/wheat free for a year, and because of my hypothyroidism I plan to stay that way for the rest of my life. In the next couple of weeks I plan to reintroduce eggs, dairy, white rice and nuts and log the results here. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
