luckyblueye Posted February 19, 2014 Share Posted February 19, 2014 I am on day 18 of my first whole 30, and I feel mostly great. However, in the last few days I have experienced pain and swollen lymph nodes under my arms. I have not weighed myself at all but I know I have lost weight by the way my clothes fit and by looking in the mirror. My question is this: If a person is losing weight too quickly and all of the weight that you are losing is stored fat, doesn't that stored fat release toxins as it is burned? And, is it possible that your liver and filtering organs can't eliminate those toxins quickly enough if they are overloaded due to the amount of toxins they are trying to filter? I could be completely confused by this, so I was hoping someone could help me out and clarify. *In case it's relevant: I was 161 lbs when I started the whole 30, which is about 20-25 lbs away from ideal weight for someone my height (although, I am not concerned with the number on the scale.) Also, I was eating a SAD before the whole 30, but with mostly homemade foods, not a lot of processed stuff, but I was still eating sugar, and gluten, grains and dairy.
