Whole 30 & Antibiotics

Answered on August 19, 2014

So I am really eager to try my first Whole 30 and would like to start tomorrow. I eat mostly Paleo, occasional weekend cheats, some dairy (really only cottage cheese, butter, heavy cream).

I am on antibiotics for a sinus infection. Is it imperative that I eat yogurts, etc. to replenish bacteria after I am done taking antibiotics? Clearly that would interfere with the Whole 30.

It's not a crisis to wait a few days to begin the Whole 30, I'd just like to get it going with. Thoughts?

Can you do non-dairy fermented foods instead of yogurt and such? Or take pro-biotic supplements, which would probably be stronger/more beneficial than a little yogurt anyway. Otherwise pushing the start date of your Whole 30 a week or two isn't the end of the world.

you can use probiotic pills. Look for the kind that has to be refrigerated. Don't start taking them until a week or so after you finish the pills. The antibiotics will continue in your system for 7-10 days.
