Jennylynn143 Posted August 18, 2014 Share Posted August 18, 2014 Some background: When I had my son and started nursing in fall of 2013 I had some serious digestion difficulties that affected me and my son. I had dealt with chronic heartburn, constipation, and stomachaches for most of my life. I cut out dairy, soy, and gluten; which helped a lot. I worked with a nutritionist who introduced me to the Weston A. Price Foundation and Nourishing Traditions ways of eating... pastured meats, pastured eggs, raw dairy, fermented products, healthy fats (coconut oil, lard, tallow)... Once I reintroduced dairy in the form of local, grassfed raw dairy, I felt amazing. I have had incredible digestion and a strong immune system... My husband and I started the Whole30 challenge to jumpstart weightloss and work out bad habits. I was also hoping for more energy and less moodiness. We are on day 12 and I am so discouraged! I feel so constipated... haven't been able to go to the bathroom in days (this was a problem solved by my former above mentioned eating regimen). And my immune system has felt compromised-- this week and last week I left the weekend with a sore throat. To top it all off, I am so tired! Here's an idea of what our meals look like: B-Eggs with avocado, country sausage, potatoes and/or sautéed veggies L-Spring salad mix with peppers, onions, guacamole, freshly made salsa, and chicken with side of strawberries D-Hamburger patty with avocado, grilled potatoes, spring salad with oil vinaigrette and pumpkin seeds, 1/2 peach and strawberries with shredded coconut I also have been drinking a lot of water with the occasional La Croix or iced coffee.
