Whole30 with MTHFR


Recommended Posts

Hi all with MTHFR!  Help!  I am day 18 and actually feeling worse than before I started.  Since my body is having a hard time detoxing, I am feeling awful!   At what point did your body finally get past this point?  What are some things you did to help?    I was a healthy eater prior to Whole30 I just wanted to do this to help get me more paleo oriented and off sugar.    I was already off gluten (I have celiac disease) and also dairy (lactose intolerance) and even caffeine.   It’s not like I am having to detox and rid my body of those things as well.  I just want to get to the 30 days since my niece is doing it as well with me.  Any advice or suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Have you looked around the forum to see threads of other people with MTHFR?  It's not all that uncommon so there may be helpful info if you look around a bit.

Here's a google search to get you started... google being the easiest way to search this site.

I Have the same MTHFR and it never occurred to me that maybe that’s why I’m feeling so lousy each day. I’m doing the SIBO test prep tomorrow, with test on Monday. Have you been tested for that?

To answer your question, I just stay focused on getting thru the day, not giving up. Ive actually discovered that a lot of the healthy foods I eat daily aren’t so healthy for me personally, so even though my Whole30 isn’t reaping the typical “feeling great” rewards, it’s still helping me sort thru other issues.
