    Psychiatry meds

    I have to agree with this. Early in sobriety, regardless of what you're trying to leave behind, a plan this strict is not likely the best idea unless you live in a place that provides only Whole30 meals and restricts access to junk. It's also not a thing to jump into just after med changes (as Pandora mentioned) because time should be given for stabilization first. I'd definitely suggest anyone on meds or working through sobriety speak first with their doctor, therapist, or at least support group before starting this type of journey... and depending on situation, a gradual shift toward full compliance could be a great idea to help acclimate and avoid some of the anxiety that could be involved otherwise.
  4. Hello, all I'm not with you on your timeline here, but saw that there was some early nausea, which can definitely happen as your body is detoxing from everything that we leave out for Whole30. My first few days were pretty hellish, in fact, and one day in particular I spend in bed surviving on very little apart from pain meds and nausea meds... but getting past that was worth it, and the start of round 2 was much easier Good luck to you all!

    Psychiatry meds

    I’m bipolar and I was hospitalized during my first real attempt at a whole 30. But I wasn’t on enough antidepressants for me and I’d just had a med change before I began. Ultimately in the end when I finally was near to completing a round (I’m on day 27) my moods improved exponentially. Just make sure to get your starchy carbs in every day, and be prepared to adjust meds. One thing I’ll say is I’d never recommend this for early sobriety. I’m a former opioid addict, I could NEVER have done this earlier.

    SchrodingersCat's Round 2 diary - starting 12 May 2019

    I feel you. I’m so sick of Whole 30 food right now. I literally cannot even look at an egg. I am sick of meat at every meal. I’m even a little sick of coconut. I’m looking forward to food freedom.

    Swapples and Beyond Meat

    Beyond meat is definitely not compliant, I wish. It’s not even very healthy tbh.
  9. I love y’all but I’m getting some gluten free grains for reintroduction. Sorry but for me, it IS about the pasta! Things that will stick: proper breakfast (though I cannot even look at an egg rn), the meal template in general and I’m not going back to drinking soda. I will not be reintroducing gluten or dairy.

    Pandora’s Whole 30 log

    I am getting my groceries ready for reintroduction. I will not be reintroducing gluten or dairy. But my food freedom will include gluten free oatmeal, pasta, and a loaf of bread (that costs $10!). I also have beans and rice in my pantry.
  11. I wonder if that’s what happened to my [email protected] He got what we thought was a stomach bug (and shoot, maybe it was) but it threw him off for about a day and a half. But he’s since bounced back. I agree with @CharGorman...maybe try cooking some veggies.

    Day 26: I had egg salad for breakfast, yes by itself. I was so sick of eggs and whole 30 food, and I didn’t want to make a vegetable too. Lunch is pork chop and Brussels sprouts, dinner is marinated chicken and a baked potato with clarified butter.

    Allison's Whole 30 Log

    Day 27 (Sunday) Busy. Busy. Busy. Went to a concert after dinner. I really was not very hungry so I had some pretty light lunch and dinner. This has become sort of an autopilot, though I did wish I could have a slice of pizza Breakfast (8:30 AM): hash browns, eggs scrambled with spinach, onions, sausage and bell peppers, and strawberries Lunch (11:30 PM): Chicken sausage with Trader Joe's riced veggie mix and scrambled egg. I had the rest for dinner. Dinner (6:30 PM): Leftover "fried rice" and slaw
  15. We are starting this weekend. We'll do our shopping on Saturday and then, depending on meal prep, start on Sunday or Monday. July 4 might be tough (I mean, who doesn't love corn on the cob in summer?) but we are ready!

    Whole30 - Ready to get Healthy

    Awesome! I know the book will encourage and help a lot! And definitely add an extra 15 days or so to your Whole30 for reintroduction. The more you can begin to mentally prepare yourself for the additional days, the easier it will be to slide right into that process at the end of your Whole30 journey. You will have worked hard, stayed committed, and accomplished so much at the 30 day mark. Reintro will come alongside all your hard work and reinforce your best and healthiest food options for beyond Whole30. Here's an article if interested! https://whole30.com/step-two-finished/

    What do you drink?

    Passionfruit La Croix is my favorite.

    Whole30 - Ready to get Healthy

    Thank you, Susan. I did not do the reintroduction last time. I believe that is where I made a mistake. I actually celebrated after the 30-days by eating something non-compliant and too much of it. I will definitely read the book.

    Hey Char! I am not currently doing a Whole30 but love encouraging people who are!! Love that you came back to Whole30 for round 2! I noticed on another line of communication that you've got a great group of people currently doing one as well! Always good to connect with people during a round! Keeps the commitment level up and makes it more fun!

    Hi Susan! Thank you... it's the second time I've done this, but the first time was many years ago. Just looking to get back on track with my health. How about you? Are you on a Whole30 now?

    18 lbs down!!

    @Tarxx99 congrats on completing your Whole30! It's totally normal to feel nervous when reaching the end of your Whole30! You've worked so hard to get to this point ~ Reintroduction plus reading Food Freedom Forever by Melissa Hartwig Urban will definitely help you more firmly establish and keep your great eating choices in play long term! Food Freedom Forever will give you skills and tools to know how to navigate well those moments where you say yes to treating yourself - Worth It Moments - and knowing when you need to say no and refrain. You've got a lot of great habits in place from doing Whole30. Just keep coming back to your why that lead you to start Whole30 and keep that goal in front of you to inspire and encourage your everyday decisions.

    Way to go Char! Is this your first time or is this a multiple round for you?

    Whole30 - Ready to get Healthy

    HI Siegfried! happy day two of your Whole30! Glad to hear you're coming back for round 2 ~ Whole30 is so great for that reset and getting our habits back to a place where we're feeling great! Being that you felt great while on Whole30 and not as great bringing some of those off limit foods back in is telling! Did you do reintroduction last time? If not, I'd definitely recommend doing that to help establish which foods might be problematic for you so you can either keep those out of your diet or limit how much you consume them. Also, I'd encourage you to read Melissa Hartwig's book "Food Freedom Forever" to encourage and equip yourself with the tools to maintain all the hard work you're doing while on Whole30 and help maintain great habits that keep you feeling good and living in your personal Food Freedom.
  25. @akrin - Congrats on 3 days in! I'm definitely not a professional at this, but can say I've had the same issue in the past with similar meals early on. Not sure if it's due to all the raw veggies at one time (I'm not use to eating big salads) or what. Maybe it just takes some time for our tummies to adjust to all the raw fiber? I don't know? It did get better though. In the meantime, maybe try roasted or stewed veggies with spices instead of salad/raw spinach. That seemed to help me.

    What do you drink?

    Things that helped me transition in the first week: - I made my own plain carbonated soda stream water and then added a splash of no sugar added fruit juice - Passionfruit or Berry flavored LaCroix is probably the most palatable to people who are used to drinking soda - I also made my own fruit infused iced tea by brewing the tea, chilling it, and then tossing in an assortment of berries. Black tea has a good bit of caffeine in it too so you get that boost you're used to.
  27. I'm on day 3 today and no cravings so far. Day 1 has been reeeeally tough. After my first Whole30 Dinner (beef patty, 1/2 avocado, 1 boiled egg, greek salad) I felt extremely nauseous and had a headache, which resulted in throwing up a few hours later... Day 2 was fine, but I haven't had a huge amount of fat all day because I was scared from the day before. Today after lunch (1 boiled egg, canned tuna, 1/4 avocado, tomato, cucumber, salad, fresh spinach) I feel nauseous again, but no headache so far. Is this normal?

    Can I have D-Ribose>

    If this has been prescribed by a doctor to your wife then she may have it and whether it follows the rules or not is moot. If it's one of those things like Acai or other super foods that people say is great for xyz, like a glass of red wine a day is good for xyz then no.
