Hang In There if you have chronic illness

Recommended Posts

I suffer from both severe GERD (I’m not really overweight) and overlapping autoimmune diseases.  I haven’t felt well in years.  I did my 30 days and I have to say, I may have felt better but not great.  I slept better for sure and I lost a few pounds which didn’t hurt but I wouldn’t say I felt WELL.  I’m 7 days into reintro but I pretty much eat Whole 30 anyway because I like it.  Only difference is I don’t go too crazy if there is a small amount of natural sweetener in something.  I did try a little milk in my tea but it tasted gross so I didn’t reintroduce dairy.  The reason I’m posting is that today I woke up and NOW I GET WHAT TIGER BLOOD IS.  I did read it sometimes takes longer if there is chronic illness but man I am glad I stuck to it another week.  Just in case you are discouraged!

 This is great news. I'm on day 14 which is pretty exciting because I've never stuck to ANY diet hardly ever. Now I'm very much a walking billboard for whole30 to my friends with chronic illnesses - give it a try! I have chronic Lyme with frequent flare ups and chronic fatigue (which I've had my whole life). But I feel good! I'm looking forward to continuing. Currently trying it without eggs because I've been getting facial hives after I eat them.  I'm done thinking it's something else. I have a feeling I'll feel even better after removing them from my diet.
