grace.c Posted February 11, 2013 Share Posted February 11, 2013 So I think I'm feeling predominantly worse on AIP. I had decent results from Whole30, but decided to go autoimmune protocol part way through to address my joint pain issues and endometriosis. My joints are feeling improved, but my energy seems incredibly low. I had excellent weight loss on normal whole30, but I suspect I have maintained or put on weight during AIP. I was having sleeping issues, which have improved (but not to the amazing levels others report). My main other complaint is that I'm very blocked up. I take magnesium, drink water non stop, and keep my fat levels up. Typical day of food: Chicken cooked in coconut oil, broccoli & pumpkin mash with added tablespoon of coconut oil Roast lamb, sweet potato mash, green veg, tablespoon added coconut oil Steak, sweet potato chips, green veg, a few olives, fat added and all fat eaten I keep the skin on the sweet potatoes but so far it hasn't helped things get moving. I guess my question is, do I feel awful because I'm doing something wrong, because my gut is healing, or because the AIP restrictions are not working for me and I need to look at other possible culprits? I'm not sure whether to try reintroducing foods at day 30, or keep going longer, or think about restricting even more. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
