  1. Hi everyone, my name is Diane and am easing into the program today and starting tomorrow January 4th as I need to I get my Whole30 grocery shopping done. My main goal is to feel good, I have been feeling off for awhile and have chronic sinusitis, fibromyalgia, osteoarthritis and just feel blah most of the time. In the past I have tried different diets: vegan - 1.5 years, Keto 1 year, vegetarian - 6 months. The best I have felt is when I follow a ketogenic diet, however my cholesterol went up - could be menopause - but still I want to eliminate dairy to see if that helps with my sinus issues

  3. i'm officially starting on January 3rd... but i'm starting it weirdly this time. i have some kind of stomach bug or food poisoning, started New Year's Eve. i was just going to indulge in a couple of carby, cheesy snacks and one alcoholic beverage, and didn't get far in. i suppose that part is just as well! my fever broke, i got a Covid test (negative), i'm still kind of weak and barely able to eat much. today: eggs and squash. seems like a W30 moment already.

  4. Hi, everyone. Just completed Day 2 and logged on to meet a few others implementing this major change in January. Motivation was to take control of my eating (and wine drinking) after a year or more of deteriorating eating habits. I was surprised how quickly I lost discipline after two years of managing weight so well. Decided I wanted some alternatives to just discipline, so before the weekend I cleaned out and replaced spices and herbs and bought new oils and vinegars. This evening made the Realplans Korean pork chops. That’s a keeper long after Whole30. I have a sense that my decreasin

  5. Hi there. What if a group of us introduced ourselves in this forum topic, and checked back to support each other throughout the month? I signed up to do the January 2022 Whole30 on the website. The email from Melissa informs me that this officially starts January 3. I also have a couple of friends in my local town who are going for it. How about you? Are you doing a January 3 or a January 1 start date? Have you tried Whole30 before? It would be great if you could answer using complete sentences, and without a lot of Internet or Whole30 abbreviations, which can get confusing...

  7. Hello, I'm starting tomorrow. This will be my 2nd W30. My first one was a few years ago, I did really well but I failed to follow the reintroduction as recommended. Few months later, I was back to my old habits Since then I been struggling with weight loss and a lot inflammation. I have a few autoimmune illnesses and I also have some food sensitivities. I also have PCOS and I know keeping a diet of no sugar, grains, and gluten is very beneficial to balance my hormones. I decided to do this Whole 30 because my sugar dragon is out of control and needs to be tamed. I'm also tired of b

  8. Hi all! I'm Katie I started Dec 27the (because at the time I had no plans for new years eve, tho I did end up celebrating last night and am VERY PROUD OF MYSELF for staying committed to this experiment). Yes, I call this an experiment, because I'm really interested to see how my body reacts to different foods and ingredients, etc. I am allergic to dairy, though while I get an anaphylactic reaction, technical allergy skin tests are inconclusive. If those are inconclusive, what about other food sensitivities etc? Can I feel this amazing feeling everyone else describes when they are avoidi

  9. Hi everyone~! Thanks for coming in and introducing yourselves. Gabby/Saturn Girl: I hear you on the Covid food effect. Pretty intense. For me I've been really dismayed to find the Sugar Dragon roaring back, especially with a chocolate addiction (and it is *weird*, the way an addiction is weird -- it's not just craving sugar sometimes, it's wanting to sneak chocolate where my family won't see, stuff like that). Loop, Angela, Lizzie, Auggiesmama/Laura: Here's to a successful January W30! Please feel free to post specific info about your favorite W30 compliant recipes and how you prepar

  10. First timer here... starting January 2nd. super nervous honestly because of the no alcohol rule. But I am also very excited to experience all the positive effects when I reach day 30 & beyond. I'm hoping that is what will keep me motivated to not "slip". I'm totally down with being part of this accountability group!

  11. Hello, my name is Kayla and this will be my first Whole30 experiment/experience. My start date is January 3rd. I used to be a nutrition and CrossFit coach at my own gym, and felt the healthiest I had ever felt in my life. I had to close my gym due to being diagnosed with cancer and then going through a nasty divorce. In order to support myself and my daughters, I took an office job (which I do love) that aligned with my degree. Fast forward 6 years, and I have never weighed as much as I do now in my entire 36 years. Not to mention how terrible I feel inside and emotionally. I’m slowly

  12. Hi I'm Grace. I am starting on Jan 2nd. First time doing the Whole30. I have been a serial dieter since 2017. Bouncing from counting calories to binge eating and so on. I went vegan for a year and that helped me keep my weight down, but eventually I traveled and wanted to eat pizza in Italy! Since Covid and especially since the beginning of 2021, I have gained 30 lbs. and my energy has been so off. I can barely focus at work. My diet hasn't been the best and I cant seem to shed the weight off no matter how much hot yoga I do, or how many miles I run. I have had a few friends do the

  14. Hi, I'm Liz. I'm starting on Jan. 10. I did my first W30 in 2015 and felt great from it. I also learned to cook simply as I have never been a cook at all. I found my spice cabinet, yes lost some weight which I was happy about, and my sleep was amazing. Some of my favorite W30 recipes continue to be my "go-to's," but alas I've also added in other things that don't serve me as well, treats, wine, etc. I am really looking forward to the benefits that I know I will get from doing a W30, and appreciate all of us supporting each other during this process!

  15. Hi, my name is Angela, and my first Whole30 was in 2013. It's been a few years since I successfully completed one, partly because I have less time now than I did back then to prep and cook. There are food delivery sources that can help me out now, so I'm looking forward to having an easier time of it and getting back that tiger blood! Glad I found you all - I look forward to the journey together! A.

  16. My partner and I are starting January 2. I have already kind of started but haven't gone full throttle. I have had this book for years and used to be about 50 lbs lighter.. trying not to focus on weight but focus more on cleansing my organs (they could use it!) Drinking and eating the last several years has been a real problem. Prior to, I was actually quite healthy. I would like to see myself that way again- thanks for starting this thread!

  18. I'm T, and I've done several Whole30s in the past. The first one was extremely successful, leading to a few years of eating Whole-30-ish and lots of great health effects; I have spent most of my adult life dealing with chronic illness. During Covid I began to slide pretty seriously to a more normal American diet. The health effects haven't been terrible, but I would sure like to feel a bit better. I've also gained several dress sizes. Whole30 helped me with fibromyalgia, mold illness, tendonitis/tendinitis, chronic pain, inflammation, and sugar cravings. I really hope I can do it suc
