Finally something that works!


Recommended Posts

Only in my early twenties, I have struggled with stomach issues for several years. It got so bad that even though I really wanted to go out, I didn't because I knew I would feel sick or have to use the bathroom if I ate anything! I gained 40 pounds in 3 years and felt disgusting about myself! I tried diets and always failed to stick to them or to see results. 

I heard about whole30 and decided to commit! I completed 30 days fairly easily. The first week was a challenge after that I was never left feeling hungry and my energy levels were so much better! I actually felt good to go out and my bowl movements became regular. My bloating and inflamaton decreased significantly. I weighed 176 pounds and by the end I weighed 157. I couldn't believe it! I felt great.  I slowly got away from whole30, adding things here and there or special occasions. Over 10 months I only gained back 2 pounds. now I am back at it again because it is so worth feeling healthier and eating clean food. I also am working towards my goal weight of 130.


Anyone can do anything for 30 days. Put your mind to it and it will be more than worth it!

Thanks for sharing!  I feel like we might be in similar situations.  Today is day 9 for me and I started close to your start weight.  I am hoping to get to where you got by the end of my whole 30.  My wedding is in 3 months so not only am I doing whole 30 to feel better (I have stomach issues too) but also to look my best at my wedding!  Hope you had good lock on your second round!

I knew by day three this was the answer I have sought most of my life.I realized that food allergies might be a problem. I never quit sugar dairy grains and legumes at one time! I could tell right away that it was changing everything.due to rooky mistake of lack of prepping/ planning I had to restart twice.I'm on my third time day four and didn't kill anything! My only symptom is being extremely tired and I have chronic insomnia so that doesn't help. No cravings at sweet no salty no cravings! My severe IBSD is almost cleared up fibro is much better I just feel much better all over my brain fog lifting my mood is much improved this is not 30 days for me its the rest of my life! Best thing I ever did for myself
