  1. Hi Jennifer! Welcome to the Forum. I'm on Day 10 so I'll be on my last week when you are beginning. I'm considering doing a Whole60 so I might be here longer. Sounds like you've done this before? I did my first Whole30 around 2014 so it's been awhile. A suggestion for looking for partners. Jot down the people who begin on or around your start date so you can track with them through the process. I've been on for over a week now and haven't seen many people introduce themselves. I'm glad you did. Maybe I just haven't figured out the best way to use this forum. It's set up by subject matte

  2. Hi All, I'm starting May 24th, since I have a few family parties in the next week, and a holiday that is all about the cheese cakes. I need to set myself up for success, so I'm being realistic. I'd love to have some W30 partners to help keep me on my toes! Thanks Jennifer

  3. Hi Y’all, I’m new here. I actually just finished Whole 30 last week. Stayed strong the whole time which flat out blew my mind as I am so much of an instant gratification kind of girl. Anyway, My 30th day was last Wednesday but I’m still on the 30 day plan so have not reintroduced anything yet and I kind of want to stay this way for a bit. I’m marginally unmotivated and extremely tired of cooking and cleaning up. I still have quite a way to go in my journey and am just looking for some support. I think this community might be good for me. (Maybe I can be good for y’all too!) :-)

  5. This is something that many of us struggle with post-Whole30. There's not necessarily one right or wrong answer, only what works for you. If you believe you should never eat sugar again, that's your decision. I would recommend reading more about life after your Whole30 and finding food freedom. Here's some articles to get started, see if any of them resonate with you: https://whole30.com/abstainer-or-moderator/ https://whole30.com/one-bite/ Or here's a link to a lot of food freedom resources: https://whole30.com/after-whole30/

    Whole30 without eggs

    It's possible to do Whole30 without eggs. If you're having trouble finding recipe ideas, Google Whole30 AIP recipes -- AIP (autoimmune protocol) is a more restrictive way of eating than Whole30, sonthere will be other things those recipes leave out that you can still have, like potatoes, but they should also leave out eggs. For the meat, I would focus on the ones you do like. For the ethical concerns, it can be more expensive, but you might feel better about your options if you try to source animals that are raised well -- pastured or grass fed or free range. See if you can find local far

    Smoking meat

    It's not that Whole30 doesn't 'allow' smoked meats it's that it is nearly impossible to find smoked meats that have all compatible ingredients. If you smoke your own meat and the ingredients in any rub or brine (??) is compatible then go for it!

  9. Hello! I am new, this is Day 2! *Started April 18th. Some goals I have for the Whole 30 program are to identify any potential triggers related to my migraines, increase energy to play with my kids and teach my students, and reset my emotional relationship with food! I've read "The Whole 30" book, have the quick meals cookbook and look forward to reading "It Starts With Food" in the next few days. I am grateful for this online venue for sharing questions, ideas and support!

  11. I commonly like to write as an outlet. So my wife has been encouraging me to write an article about my health journey and Whole30. I finally wrote it down. But really don't have anywhere to post. This seems to be the most appropriate place. So here goes... Apologies for the length. Wasn't initially writing it for a forum. I’m awake… What time is it? 5 am… I got roughly five and a half or six hours of sleep. That’s enough for me. My wife and daughter are still sleeping. This is a great time to get in a workout. I ran yesterday and my knees can’t handle two days in a row. I coul

  12. I heard about Whole30 through my cousin, who sells essential oils and shared the basic rules and some recipes with me as part of a detox program. While the detox didn't work out for me, I was intrigued and did my own research, reading the 30-Day Guide and finishing my first Whole30/reintroduction March 5 and second one May 23; I didn't do well coming off my last one so I started another reset a few days ago, too. This forum has been really helpful to me so I thought I'd share some of my success! First, my cholesterol skyrocketed down after my first round and I'll be doing my lab work agai

  13. Bern123, its so great to hear from you and it means a lot to me that I have managed to inspire someone. Its been 13 months since I started this journey. I’ve already done a second Whole30. I am doing great! Definitely still going strong. I’ve lost 60 lbs in total. But more importantly, NO LPR! After my second Whole30 I went to my doctor and had blood work done. For the first time in my life every reading was perfect across the board. My blood pressure is down. I’m sleeping better. Everything is better. I hope your Whole30 experience went well. Relatively speaking of course. Yo

  14. I'm not sure why it's taken me so long to post this, but I just have to share how much Whole 30 has changed my life. I did my first Whole 30 in Jan 2019. I was having terrible migraines up to 3 times/week. I was on tons of meds for my headaches. I was even having to take meds to offset the side effects of my migraine meds. I was miserable. I was extremely overweight. I had no energy. I was having gastrointestinal issues. I desperately needed to make a change but didn't know what to do. I went for my annual exam with a new Dr in Dec 2018. I was talking to her about my migraines & other heal

  15. Such an amazing story to read, congratulations!! You should be so darn proud! The first part of your post could have been written by me! Jan 2019 I was 250lbs, and about to give up full time work due to chronic vertigo caused by vestibular migraines. I had MRIs and so many different meds without results, and was just a shell of myself, then tried W30 out of desperation. BOOM migraines gone by week 3. I did lose a good 50lbs, but then fell off the horse late last year, gained about about 30 of them back, and the vertigo came back. So here I am, a week into Round 3, and celebrating my
