It's a bit too restricting, which I was determined to power through. The real problem though is this constant pain in my side.
You see, I have what I like to call a temperamental gallbladder. I've had it tested multiple times, and every time the results are the same. The Docs tell me that it is not bad enough to warrant surgery, and that I just need to watch what I eat.
The pain started pretty much on the second day of the new eating plan. I had hoped that it was an adjustment thing, and that it would go away. No such luck. I'm not sure what is making my gallbladder go haywire, but clearly what I have been eating is not working.
For the time being I am quitting the Whole30 program, but not my healthy eating goals. I am going to keep focusing on whole foods, avoiding added chemicals and added sugars. Hopefully that will clear up this pain in my side, as well as get my body running at it's best.
I never like quitting, but sometimes it really is the best option. The goal is a happier and healthier me. It is time to simply try a new path!
