Well, do you count something as a failure if you’ve learned something in the process? The Whole30 (elimination diet) I talked about before actually became a Whole8 instead, mostly because I was feeling sicker and sicker every day when I was doing the diet. Most people start an elimination diet because they’re trying to heal what makes them feel sick, where it just plain old made me sick.
So after a week, I decided I needed to not be so strict and pick one thing at a time to eliminate instead of more than one. The dominant theory between my husband and I is that it was too much of a shock to the system. Oh well. I still think the Whole30 is a great program, I just couldn’t deal with feeling sick any longer.
