Itchy skin?


Recommended Posts

I'm on Day 16, and my skin is suuuuper itchy, especially on my arms and legs. This also happened on Day 9, but was gone by Day 10. Can someone take a look at what I at those days and see if they can pinpoint a possible culprit? 


Day 9

M1: coffee with coconut cream, 3 scrambled eggs, sweet potato w/ coconut cream and pecans

M2: pork carnitas over mixed greens and guac

M3: Banana cooked in coconut oil with pecans and coconut flakes

M4: fried egg, compliant hot dog, roast brussels sprouts and broccoli


Day 15

M1: 3 eggs scrambled in coconut oil, green apple (ended up stuck somewhere where this was all that was available)

M2: giant salad from Mod Market with greens, cucumber, grated sweet potato, shredded coconut, and roast chicken 

M3: 2 compliant hot dogs, pickles, 2 beets, handful coconut flakes, 1/2 jicima root


The common denominators are coconut, eggs, sweet potatoes, and hot dogs. All of which I've eaten throughout the program with no issue.

I found out halfway through my first try at a whole30 that I was intolerant to eggs and coconut. I never pinpointed it because they seemed "healthy" options and because it was never an immediate reaction. You can always try cutting out one or the other for a few days and see how you feel?

This could be something completely external to what you are eating. Possibly environmental? I get itchy skin on occasion, I've never been able to pinpoint it to one thing, but the food I eat doesn't vary a great deal as I try to keep things simple. But water intake varies and air quality varies and I work in a gym so...who knows.
