Negative Reaction to Avocado...Can I still do the Whole30?


Recommended Posts

Hi all,


I'm planning to begin the Whole30 in January, and I'm really excited for food freedom and awareness.


One thing is giving me pause though...in college I learned that I have a very negative physical reaction to avocados (read: panic attacks, weird right??). I think they taste great but I don't want to ruin the positive effects of the Whole30 by adding a food that I know my body reacts poorly to into my diet. Technically I'm not allergic; the doctor said intolerant (the reaction kicked in 3 hours after eating, not right away). That being said, SO many Whole30 recipes use avocado and it's like one of 3 healthy fat options... Can I still do the Whole30? Should I try out avocado again in the safety of my home to see if it was a fluke? I have never heard of anyone else having this issue, so I'm not sure what to do.
