superal Posted July 14, 2014 Share Posted July 14, 2014 I'm about to launch on my second whole 30.. my first was almost two years ago and I wish I would have stuck with it because I wouldn't be in the predicament I'm in now. After losing 110lbs a few years ago with weight watchers and exercise I have gained 65lbs this past year despite a lot of exercising and attempted healthy diet. I have a bit of a sugar addiction and find it easy to binge since I was so restrictive before when losing all the weight. I developed the above conditions after losing my weight and have struggled ever since. I have worked out 4-6x a week since 2010 sometimes even more however, recently my conditions have worsened (Hashimotos, fibromyalgia, adrenal fatigue) and I came down with a nasty case of shingles. I recently cut back my exercise (for the past three months) and only do a ladies cross fit gym 2-3x a week. I am so exhausted and am wondering if the exercise is causing extra stress which is causing flares within my immune system. Would you recommend keeping my exercise program while starting the whole 30 or taking a break and just focusing on the food portion until my body has recovered?
