Bear with me for a moment. I started eating primally at the start of January this year. I do believe I am metabolically deranged as I was carrying about 60 extra lb and had a lot of belly fat (apple shape). I researched a great deal and committed to eating Primally. I have lost 25 lb in 3 months but am concerned as my hsCRP has actually risen from 7.5 in November, when I was eating a SAD to 11.0 last week.
This has spurred me to do a Whole30 or reset following Chris Kresser's advice. I am finding it hard as I have no enjoyment from food on this reset plan, as I have dropped fruit, dairy and all but a few macadamias in the morning.
My question is whether this reset is really necessary. I don't have autoimmune issues that I know of. No allergies that I know of. I have osteoarthritis that has improved greatly while on Primal. Anyone have any ideas?

Maybe you are eating a new food to which you are having a reaction? For example, are you suddenly eating lots of eggs? Mike

7.5 to 11 is not real concerning over the short term. Give it a little time and recheck. Whole 30 is not necessary, BUT it's a darn good idea. It is absolutely "metabolic magic" for some people. I would be somewhat suspicious for something else going on. Any other lab results. Age, blood pressure?
