  1. This is my first WHOLE30 and I just wanted a space where I can record some thoughts (whether anyone reads them or not) My WHY: I feel like crap. I live with constant brain fog that I blame on being a mother of two young children (5 y.o. and almost 2 y.o.) and that it's hit or miss if my almost 2 year old will sleep through the night. I pretend that my sleep being interrupted is the reason I can't lose weight, but being honest, I eat like crap. It's the food and my lack of control around it. And my lack of motivation - about everything - work, exercise, eating smaller portions. To

    September Whole 30

    Hello all! I'm committed to starting Whole 30 on 9/2. Anyone else? I would love to have a group of people on the same journey to connect with, share ideas, recipes, plans, etc. I'm following a few people who have mentioned also starting in September. Feel free to follow and hit me up. More support = more success! Best wishes for a successful journey - Di

  5. I think my kids were about five and six the first time I did a Whole30. It was such a rough time for me because I felt like crap, didn't get enough sleep, and ate terribly and felt terrible. It's a lousy space to be in! You sound like you've got a good perspective of things and you sound READY! The in-law part is hard - really hard and I smiled at your plan to just cook at your house!

    Whole 30 (July 2)

    Day 39 Well, thank goodness I'm doing this because the emotions of today were rough and there was no desire to eat or pull through a drive through on the way home. It just didn't exist and it's not because I've done some deep soul searching or cognitive processing on my food eating relationships. It's because the foods that trigger those dopamine or seratonin rushes (or whatever it is that they do) are not in my system. I really do feel like an addict that is finally off the things that were an issue. Cigarettes. I'd never smoke one again because I know I'd be immediately hooked. Beer - n

  7. Hi! I'm Katie, and I'm about to start my 4th whole30 on September 2nd. I start the 2nd because we are having a birthday party for my younger daughter on the 1st and I'm baking her cake I have 4 kids, ages 7, 4 (almost 5), 2 (but she'll be 3 in a few days), and almost 7 months. I always feel flipping amazing on the whole30, really from day 1. It's a wonder I ever stop! Except it's not because we all live in a world where sourdough bread exists, sigh. Looking forward to doing this with everyone!

  9. Stop thinking in terms of breakfast foods. It's just a meal, you can eat anything at meal 1 that you eat at any other meal. Leftovers are easy. Soup or stew can be nice if it's starting to get chilly in the morning where you are. This past discussion has things people have eaten for breakfast that aren't eggs:

  10. Daily emails are not available anymore, but there is the Whole30 Day by Day book which has similar tips and space for you to journal about each day, if that's something you'd be interested in.

  11. I remember my food dreams during Whole30. I had one where I woke up (in my dream) with crumbs on my face and shirt, and went to the fridge to see that I'd somehow scarfed down an entire birthday cake. Woke up (for real) so upset, feeling nauseated and undone, and had to physically check the fridge, the kitchen, etc., and verify with others in the house that no one had put a cake in the fridge the previous day! It was insane. There was another where I'd accidentally licked my fingers while making my kid's lunch for school, and wound up downing a jar of peanut butter as result -- of course, had
