Kimberly22 Posted December 9, 2015 Share Posted December 9, 2015 I just finished my first Whole30 last Tuesday (December 2nd) and am in the reintroduction phase now. My main reason for trying the Whole30 program is because I have an autoimmune disease and I wanted to see if the foods I put into my body affected my symptoms. My two huge complaints with symptoms are upper respitatory issues(granulamas in my lungs) and body/joint pain (sarcoidosis leisians) in my bones. My respitatory problems are gone!! My nose is no longer congested and that helps with my chest pressure that I normally feel. Talk about relief. The body pain started to get better on day 31 which is why I am sticking with a Whole30/Paleo lifestyle going forward. I had a physcial on Monday and I lost 7 pounds, my bad cholestoral is down (99), my good chlestoral is up (38), tryglicerides are WAY in the normal zone, my blood sugar is stable and I am no longer predibetic. My skin is brighter, my clothes are baggy, my confidence is up and I feel in control. Funny thing...I lost weight in my feet. I had to throw out 3 pairs of shoes because they were too wide! My diet has been on a journey for a while now. Leading up to my first round of Whole30, it kept getting cleaner and cleaner and wholer and wholer. I was diagnosed in 2006 and this is the best I have felt in a very long time. Thank you! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
