Danielle Rutherford Posted February 23, 2014 Share Posted February 23, 2014 My husband and I finished our second Whole30 a few weeks ago. We skipped the reintro phase this time since we did it the first time around and I pretty much knew that bothered me (i.e. gluten). We've off-roaded a bit the last few weeks and I have been feeling like complete shit. I know that gluten (and grains in excess) will flare up my IBS like no other, but this time around sugar is trying to ruin me! I have directly linked that sugar amplifies my anxiety like no other. I have been miserable the last week trying to deal with my anxiety and took me a few days to realize that all those chocolate treats and sugar were the culprit. I was bad yesterday and had a doughnut and boy am I paying for it. It is NOT WORTH IT to feel like this. I am trying to remember how I feel right now so it will help me make better choices when presented with sweet treats. That being said, I am doing a Whole7 to hopefully reset things and have made some strict rules for myself when it comes to sugar. Does anyone notice a major link with sugar and their anxiety?
