  1. Hello!! My name is Laura and I will be starting my first Whole30 on Monday July 8th. My ultimate goal is to finish and my other goal is to take the first steps towards truly changing my relationship with food. Food has been my drug for almost my entire life. I know that in order to be successful I will have to learn how to be uncomfortable and so I am gearing up to deal with all the suck that is going to come with it. I am looking forward to and dreading this experience all at the same time. I appreciate any suggestions or advice anyone might have. Thank you!

  2. Hello Everyone! I will be joining everyone for the July Whole 30. I've done it once before. Loved everything about it. I have a sugar problem and need a reset. I'm a runner too. I remember having a sustained energy issue while on the whole30, but I upped my sweet potatoes/potatoes intake and that really helped! I'll stay connected Below is a link to the Whole 30 Calendar in case anyone wants to print it off to mark the days off! Cheers to everyone on this journey!

  3. A little about me.....I did a Whole30 a few years ago and never felt better. Then I talked and ate my way back into old habits. Now, I'm overweight, sad and feel crap-tacular. I need to do this so I can feel better, physically and mentally. I'm 5'1(ish) and I weigh in the ballpark of 170 pounds. I gain weight in my mid-section and I hide it well, most times, with my clothes. If anyone is interested in being my July buddy, that would be great!

  4. Goodmorning! I wish everyone lots of succes. It will be an extra challenge for me because I want to combine this with a repair program for my leaky gut. So eggs tomatoes spinach are also off my list. What is on the menu today? Since i just finished a three day course with my hubbie I do not have anything prepared. I will do that today. But in my freezer I found a compliant meal salmon with greens.

  5. Hey Laura! Really excited for you and your Whole30 journey! I commend you and your ultimate goal for doing Whole30 - to not only finish but take steps toward truly changing your relationship with food! Bravo! That's what its all about! Couple of thoughts. Having your WHY very clearly outlined is so powerful and serves as that "true north" you can go back to on the tough days. Mentally preparing ourselves is as important as preparing our kitchens and prepping food! If you take the time to think ahead about what you'll do and how you'll handle tough days (call someone, hop

  6. I agree with LadyShanny's suggestion - consider just to keep going and note the date and add it on the back end vs. calling it day one again - it's way easier by day 30 to add on 6 more days because you are in a totally different place by then than you are at day 6. I think.

  7. I took a sip of beer a week or two in. Someone offered and I forgot for a second. I was so pissed I’d have to start over -and I was having a really hard time with the program- that I gave up entirely. Now it’s three years later and I’m 50 lbs heavier. So if it’s between continuing or giving up, I mean, isn’t it better to continue?

  8. Don't start over. It's a piece of gum. Let's keep everything in perspective. Keep going, you'll be fine.

  9. Thanks so much! I appreciate it. I will keep going for now and decide on Day 30 how I feel. You are right! It does have sweetener in it. Which makes it even worse! Boo. But anyway...thank you for the pointers!

  10. My favorite combination right now for breakfast hash is: lean ground beef, butternut squash, kale and mushrooms. I also add salt & pepper, coconut milk & green curry paste and add ghee for added fat. If I have time I will have it with a couple sunny side up eggs on top. The runny yolk tastes absolutely delish over the breakfast hash.
