paula_bear Posted June 18, 2015 Share Posted June 18, 2015 I'm on Day 17 of my Whole 30. Last night I noticed my flip flops were tight and saw that my ankles were swollen. Today it became worse and my ankles are swollen to twice their normal size. I went for a brisk 45 minute walk after dinner. I don't keep track of my water intake, but I know I had at least 64 oz of clear water, plus 3 cups of herbal tea and a 16 oz kombucha. This is what I ate today: M1 - 6:00 am: 2 egg omelette with spinach & onion fried in coconut oil, 1/2 large potato fried in coconut oil with onion & red pepper, 1/4 cup cashews, small granny smith apple M2 - 12:15 pm: spinach salad with grated carrots, red pepper, alfalfa sprouts and grilled chicken breast with olive oil & vinegar. 1/2 avocado. Mini-meal at 3:30 pm (a wave of exhaustion rolled over me as it often does at this hour) 1/4 cup raw almonds & small granny smith apple M3 - 6:30 pm: 2 egg omelette with asparagus, mushroom & onion fried in coconut oil, 2 pieces of compliant sausage, 1/2 potato fried in coconut oil with red pepper & onion. I didn't eat anything out of the ordinary. I don't have high blood pressure and I've never experienced this before. I'm not pregnant (I only mention it because one of my coworkers asked.) Any idea what could be causing this? I will also mention that on Day 2 I broke out in a rash that lasted about 5 days. I also have Hashimoto's thyroiditis and a wheat allergy. One other thing is that I was gluten free for about 6 weeks and dairy free for a week before starting my W30, but the Friday before I began, I binged on my favorite snack, pretzels and milk. Thanks in advance for any insight you may have to offer! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
