    Have you always been allergic to eggs, or did you recently realize this?

    I found I am only allergic to egg whites but can eat egg yolks.

      I am doing W30 to help with all the inflammations that suddenly flared up on me, but I am pretty sure it was artificial sweeteners and some peanut butter I ate at mom's place + stress (I went to help with a family emergency). Took out dairy just in case though.
      Leida, I'm hoping that when I add eggs back in, they won't cause inflammation. I've shed a lot of foods during this Whole30 so that I can see what my body feels like. I think 30 days might not be enough.

        I had blood tests done in 1989 to determine food sensitivities. eggs, beef, oranges came back. When I eat much of those foods I get a red eczema type thing on the right side of my nose.

        Interestingly enough, I am on day 9 of my very strict Whole30 and last night noticed the red patch appearing. The only food that I am eating more of to compensate is ground pork from Whole Foods.

          I don't know what they feed those pigs, but I know some people who are sensitive to soy react to animals that were fed it.

            Keep my fingers crossed you can put eggs back in.
            I had experience similar to Ekaterine that I started reacting to egg whites when I ate >1 cup of egg whites a day.
            I think normal elimination protocol requires no consumption for 6 weeks before putting things back in?

            I feel better myself, luckily, so I am almost sure it's not dairy, since I haven't eaten it only for 1 day, but it's not like I can't survive without yogurt.

              I'm hoping I can put egg yolks back in! I'm doing Whole30 but will probably extend it.

                Today is Day 7 for me. Got that nightly sugar monster under control for now. I could probably time my meals and round them out a little better but so far am feeling triumphant. Sooo looking forward to week 2.

                  Hey pfair, I just finished a Whole 30 in April, and sweets at night were a biggie for me. I added some fruit and that did it for me. Strawberries are in! And apples pretty much every day. Now I reach for those instead of what had become too-frequent chocolate consumption. Keep at it--it gets easier!

                    I thought I was good about labels too, and felt I was doing well until i read your post. I had bottled lemon juice in my home made salad dressing. Oh well. will be better going forward.
                    I'm doing this more to see how i feel after a month without dairy. A quarter of the way through this month and doing well. Not as hungry at night. I guess i do get more of an insulin release from eating cheese than pork ribs.

                      Thanks for the encouragement Tom. I really don't do well with challenges, deadlines, or projects but am determined to finish this one.

                        yes, garp94, I have already returned some things to the store that I hadn't opened - they all have carrageenan, and that is out! I found lemon juice at whole foods with no sulfites, so that will be the brand I keep when I don't have fresh lemons.
                        so far, so good these past few days. I ate some fish on Friday that I didn't make, but I think it was safe. My worst problem with foods that I don't cook are the crappy fats that people/restaurants use! At home, I buy and cook the food, but eating out, even at a friend's house, is just not going to happen if I want this to be %100 WHOLE whole30.....
                        I don't mind, because my joints are already better. Hopefully, it wont be an issue in the next few weeks.
                        good luck!

                          It's wonderful when your joints feel better. Mine are a barometer for me that show me when I need to look harder for something new or different that is bothering me. But normally now there is no pain or inflammation.

                            I am starting to miss dairy. But I set a pot of kimchi yesterday, so in a couple of days hopefully I can have something yum to eat!

                            My joints started to feel better, but after learning to box for about an hour yesterday wrists are complaining again. Hopefully better by next class!

                              Day 13 for me. I'm feeling a bit leaner. Hands less swollen. Sleep is my biggest challenge. Easiest part is sticking to Whole30 food plan sans nightshades, beef, eggs, oranges because of tested sensitivities.

                              Heal my sleep please! Once that happens I will know my insides are healing.

                                Fingers crossed for you. I also have that prayer for good night's sleep, but it's hard in the summer.... I am considering cold showers again. Eww.
