    Psyching up for a December W30!

    I did my 2nd W30 last December, and it was really empowering to get through the season in a state of high health! That was a first for me, a recovering cookie monster. I've had a good year, but still working on Food Freedom. Looking forward to reducing inflammation, and feeling better in my hips and feet (I'm thinking it's arthritis).

    Starting tomorrow!

    Hi all, I am starting my first Whole30 tomorrow. I've done all the shopping, I've done a little prep, and I'm ready to go. I am worried about the withdrawals that I'm sure to experience (esp. from giving up sugar), but mostly I'm staying positive. A couple of weeks ago I was dreading the thought of giving up all my food crutches and having to just eat fruit and veg, meat and fish etc for 2 weeks, until it hit me that our challenge is to eat a multitude of beautiful, fresh foods--I mean, first world problems or what?! There are people in the world that are dying from starvation and we get to eat a bounty of good foods--I'll remind myself of this when I feel weak Lucy

    Starting Black Friday

    I'm excited to get started on this journey! Since our family is celebrating on Thursday, I decided to wait until Friday to start. This gives me the next few days to prepare! I'm determined to succeed and hopefully improve my health!

    Starting Black Friday

    Good luck--you won't regret it! I am doing my 2nd round starting Black Friday as well. I did Round 1 in July-August and was really disciplined since then and I tell you what--I have lost 21 pounds and the almost daily headaches I was hoping to get under control are pretty much gone. Yesterday I ate soy, dairy, wheat and sugar and guess what--I feel like crap today. Headaches, body aches, stuffy nose, was up at 2am with a pounding headache, crappy sleep, nightmares. If I ever EVER needed confirmation that those four food groups are the devil to me, yesterday was it! So today--back on the Whole30 wagon. It's not hard once you start feeling good. Yesterday (thanksgiving) was sort of an experiment--I have been really disciplined about what I introduced back in so I kind of wanted to see if little bits of those foods made that much of a difference and they really did. So now I know (like I didn't before...) Really--good luck--you'll feel great and be so pleased with yourself!

    Starting January 6 2019

    Hi, I know my start date may be far away... but with the holidays around the corner and big events I need to attend... I will be turning 30 next March and I figured (after seeing someone I know complete the Whole30) that I should give it a try for a couple of reasons. 1. Whole30 and I’m turning 30. What better way to start off the next decade taking care of my self 2. I have 33 food intolerances (with allergy tests to complete next week) would be nice to get a handle on everything. 3. I have a low immune system, exhausted and other health problems (physical and mental)....so I am hoping figuring out what works best for my body will help me get energy, quality sleep and so on.

    Starting in December

    I purchased the Whole30 book some months back. This past Friday, I purchased the planner which got me looking for my book. After discussing it with my husband I decided to plan and prepare now and start in December. I have have so many sensitivities, I don’t really know what’s causing them. I heard many good things about Whole30 and we’re hoping it will help when we start trying for a baby again.

    Starting in December

    Hi @GeminiAmbivert - welcome! Best wishes for your Whole30, there's lots of support here if you need it. December is both an extremely hard time to do Whole30 and also an oddly magical time.
