Whole 30 helped me a lot really. It is hard to give up the things you love, especially when you find out that you are actually allergic to those things. I had to go super restrictive and add nuts and eggs to that list of restrictions. I actually had no idea that I was actually allergic, not just intolerant to dairy eggs and nuts (almonds in particular). So the whole 30 has become the way I pretty much have to eat. I do have some sugar back in my diet, but really am restricting it to just a Sunday dessert treat, homemade. I actually had half a milk chocolate Lindt bunny yesterday and really paid for it with severe symptoms yesterday and it is going to take a few days for my body to recover from that assault. I seem to be severely allergic to the casein. There is no doubt that eliminating the offending foods has made me much more sensitive now. Be prepared for that.........
