CraigS Posted November 1, 2012 Share Posted November 1, 2012 Hello all - My wife and I are on day 16. I've been reading through the forums and am about half-way through the "It Starts With Food" book. Great and fascinating stuff, explains so many things about our health. First, I will say that we've definitely been experiencing positive effects from Whole30. I'm also experiencing a few symptoms/side-effects - I've read a few threads that described similar issues but the details were a bit different. First thing is the nausea. Since starting the diet I've had a kind of constant low-level nausea (maybe 3-4 on a scale from 1-10). It goes away while I'm eating and returns maybe an hour after I eat. It's significant enough that it makes me not want to eat, but I force myself, and then I immediately feel better. I am taking an approved whole food multi-vitamin, drinking plenty of water, etc. I thought it would have abated by now. Second thing is my lack of quality sleep due to heart palpitations (which started the day of or the day after we started Whole30). Though now, I don't think they're really palpitations, as my heart rate and blood pressure are always normal. I guess you could say that I'm now much more restless at night since starting Whole30, and when I wake up I'm just hyper-aware of my heartbeat. Not sure if that makes any sense. I had my heart and blood pressure checked (including an EKG), all clear. Blood sugar is normal. I'm trying to think of something I could be doing wrong...
