day 3 and I am on the floor!

Recommended Posts



Day 3 and I am totally exhausted, zero energy! 

I started on the 1st July, today I had to go to the doctors for the chest and throat infection and he gave me antibiotics which I started this morning and are making me feel sick.

My reason for doing whole 30 is my constant sore throat and swollen glands.  I have suffered from bouts of chronic fatigue for 15 years since a bad viral infection in my 20s.


Today I feel so bad I feel like quitting but desperately want to push through.  Is this normal day 3 feelings or is it worse become im ill??  Help and advice much appreciated!

It is worse because you are ill. It is worse because antibiotics kill useful gut bacteria. Day 3 is often a day that people start feeling tired, but you have a lot of extra stuff. 


Keep making good food choices - meats, fats, veggies. Be sure to eat starchy veggies every day as most people feel and perform better when they do. Get some probiotics to help replenish good gut bacteria.
