HealthyPhD Posted September 9, 2015 Share Posted September 9, 2015 I am not sure if this is the appropriate location for this question since I've already done a start-up post, but I'm wondering about those who have gone through the Whole30 after living a paleo/primal or mostly-paleo/primal lifestyle before. The timeline doesn't seem like it should apply if you've already kicked the addictions (sugar, wheat, etc.) that would cause most of the withdrawal symptoms associated with the first few days. Do you get to Tiger Blood faster? Or do those first few days just suck less? Corn and sugar had crept into my diet a little bit just prior to starting (but had already abstained for several days before day 1), and I was never terribly strict about dairy (tried not to eat it regularly but maybe 2-3 times a month), and had been drinking a pretty good bit of alcohol recently, so I can certainly see where strict adherence to the Whole30 principals for a full 30 days should prove advantageous, but I'm wondering if I should expect more modest improvements than someone who was eating a full-on "standard American diet" immediately prior to starting a challenge.
