Sapientia Posted November 21, 2014 Share Posted November 21, 2014 Hi! This is my very first post in the Whole30 Forum and I am excited to be part of this awesome community!!! I am on Day 5 of my first Whole30 using the AutoImmune protocols. I just signed up for the Whole30 Daily a couple days ago and am finding that a very helpful resource. Yesterday I received the book 'It Starts With Food' and have made reading it a personal growth goal for my whole 30. I spent last weekend planning meals, grocery shopping and food prepping. Earlier this week I weighed, measured and took photos (blah!). I mind-mapped a strategy for this journey, journaled my dream, goals and an action plan. I am feeling pretty terrific at day 5! Issues I am dealing with include Adrenal Fatigue, Fibro, hypo-thryoid, leaky gut, IBS, and overweight 50 pounds. So far my lab work has been in 'normal' range although moving to being high for insulin resistance and high blood pressure, etc. I know Whole30 and Paleo AI will address many of these issues and provide the nutrients and support for my body to heal on many levels. In the past 4 years I've been on GAPS and SCD and have gone through extended periods of eliminating gluten, dairy, eggs, etc and do notice a HUGE change in my overall wellness when I am compliant. So many of the strategies of the Whole30 are aspects with which I am familiar. I love this way of eating, my biggest nemesis is cooking for my husband and children (two still at home) who are not on board with this lifestyle change. So finding a support system is going to be the key factor in keeping me successful. Thanks for reading and good luck to all on the Whole30 journey.
