Emma C. Posted February 16, 2014 Share Posted February 16, 2014 Do you ever feel like the number of foods you can eat is ridiculously limited? I did my first whole 30 in August of last year. That was after failing miserably in June and July. But I learned some really important things during those 2 months. I learned that these foods trigger feelings of fatigue, anxiety, bloating, and cravings: - Eggs - Coconut milk/meat - Onions - Garlic - Leeks - Sweet potatoes - Nuts/seeds At first I tried the autoimmune paleo regimen. And that helped. But I could tell that there were still foods I was eating that I shouldn't be. Eventually I got rid of the alliums (onion, garlic, etc.) and that seemed to do the trick. I ate like that for about 3 months. It was wonderful to finally feel good. But it's SO hard to live on such a limited menu -- especially when you travel. So I started adding in foods again. I thought I was doing ok until December came and I completely fell apart. By then I had added just about everything back in. I must have done it too quickly. Now I'm back to square one -- on my really limited diet. So I guess I'm posting this for these reasons: To see if there is anyone else out there who has lots of food intolerances who might be able to lend a cyber-shoulder for me to lean on. To elicit any suggestions everyone has about how long to stick to my limited diet before trying to add in foods again (and how I might start doing that when the time comes) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
