sharonluke Posted November 27, 2014 Share Posted November 27, 2014 I have just completed my first Whole30 and I'm continuing on for a Whole60. I lost 7 lbs and my achilles tendonitis has improved greatly. However I have been having really issue with my sleep. I have always been a great sleeper but during my Whole 30 I have been having trouble dropping off, waking up feeling exhausted and with all of my muscles aching. The last week or two I have also had flu like symptoms. My energy levels are low on waking although once I'm up and about it gets better. I tried a 3 week elimination diet a few months before starting the Whole30 and I felt great within a week, I slept longer and more soundly and woke up feeling fully rested. So I was expecting the same thing with the Whole30. I followed the programme pretty strictly so I'm surprised by the issues I'm having. Any ideas why? I have been overweight and eaten a dreadful diet for many years and I realise that a month may not be long enough to sort out all of the issues but I wasn't expecting to feel so grotty.
