  1. Just to be safe Reseason it with olive oil that's what I use on mine
  2. Maybe it's easier to sabotage than succeed!!! Aim for success. It's only 30 days. Breathe 3 times deeply when you feel sabotage coming on. Take a walk. Center yourself. You can do it.

  4. Hi! Sounds like me in Whole Foods the first time. It's a learning curve and then easy. Here are some tips: Grill your chicken or prepare a bunch of cv round meat at once and have it for the week. Roast some vegetables ie sweet potatoes. If you can't prepare in advance just stir fry. If there is not Tessa Mae marinades in whole foods go to the website and get some. I also make a bunch of spinach, chard or collard greens and use it in my eggs in the morning. With Cholula hot sauce. Wild planet tuna and the canned salmon are compliant-- from Costco. Carry one in your bag at all times. Take your hand at homemade mayo. It's great on everything. To the The Clothes Make the Girl website. Also buy her book-- great primer! After awhile you will know what's compliant and what you like and it won't take so long in the grocery store. It's a journey well worth taking. Have a great week, good luck.
  5. Yippee !!!!! Great job.
  6. Deep breaths. Three. Center yourself. Breathe. Resist the temptation. It's not worth it. I promise. You are almost there.
  7. No to full fat cream. Try full fat coconut milk.
  8. My name is Michelle and I am 61. I have always been thin to During menopause 51-60 I gained 25 lbs and no aiming of elliptical, walking, working out, weight watchers could budge it. I figured this weight was my new normal and I was resigned to it even though when I looked in the mirror I did not recognize myself. Last summer i began a low carb diet I immediately felt better and lost 6 lbs. I and bgan reading "low carb" blogs. Ultimately I got to the Whole 9 website. I completed my first W45 in November and then completed a W100 in April. Since April I have been about 80% compliant and I have been experimenting with "rising my own bike". It's been difficult in some areas for me (ice cream is my challenge) and some have decided to do another W30 and I started on August 1st. I am happy to follow along with you and provide any support and assistance that you need. Fear--I get it. Ask yourself if you can do anything for only 30 days. What I learned during my first w45 is to take 3 deep breaths (or more) before the temptation to offroad. I Center my mind and tell myself it's only 30 days. I learned so much and i feel so much better ( and lost 20 lbs that I thought would be mine forever!). I have also learned that the journey is never over. I am continuing to learn I'm happy to be your cheerleader. I began my third round of Whole 30 on August 1 so I am 11 days in. I would be happy to coach your through.
  9. Somewhere along the way on a forum someone suggested freezing vegetable scraps and the bones of a cooked chicken and them throwing them on a crockpot for 10-24 hours to make bone broth. So last night I threw my frozen pack along with an extra onion, a turnip, and some fresh dill and parsley into the crockpot and cooked it overnight. The delicious smell woke me up at 4:00 pm. I strained it this morning and had a cup. Delightful. And very filling. I will have a hard time eating breakfast (but I will--leftover spinach and sweet potato Fritatta). I think I'm past the headache. Which means that I am starting to convert over from burning sugar to burning fat. Good stuff! Good day to all.

  11. You did a great job. I know the fear about adding things back. I completed a whole 100 in April and have had some difficulty learning how to "ride my bike". But the experimentation has left me with a great understanding of what makes me less healthy. Now I am doing my 3rd W 30 for a tune up. Just remember this isn't a diet-- it's a lifestyle that you customize for yourself. But it takes work even after the 30 days. My first W 30 turned into a W 45 because I was afraid to add back anything. Then I found that I really could do without my formerly beloved dairy (except for ice cream) and that sugar made me feel awful. I never added back gluten either. This doesn't mean that when I was experimenting with riding my bike that I didn't eat a bowl of pasta at a great Italian restaurant. Anyway-- I could write a whole book about my journey. Read the post W30 forums and you will find all kinds of great advice about people's post W 30 journeys.
  12. Runner Judy. You can follow my paleo boards and my Whole 30 boards at MichelleLobovits. They are not all whole 30 compliant but I have been compiling them for quite sometime and there's a lot of good stuff there.
  13. You can follow my Pinterest Paleo boards. Just know I collect Paleo desserts there and I have never made one!!! Hahaha!
  14. Suggestion: 1 whole chicken, I/2 lb chopped meat, 2 dozen eggs, 6 sweet potatoes, big bag of greens ( collard or spinach not too expensive) and the largest can of organic cold pressed coconut oil or the largest bottle of olive oil you can afford. Don't sweat grass fed or organic meat for now if you cannot afford it. You can make it a week on this. Check forum and blogs for simple recipes using those ingredients and some spices.
