    I agree with your cousin that you need more carbs, but get them from sweet potatoes, spaghetti squash, acorn squash, butternut squash, pumpkin (I love this time of year) instead of grains. And hang in there- you are right in the toughest part.

    -- they are really disappointed when spaghetti squash is out of season and thrilled when strawberries come into season
    -- they find themself standing in front of the refrigerator saying "man I wish I had a cauliflower!"
    -- an egg is warming on their counter because they are going to make mayo

    That's hilarious! I picture them announcing over the loudspeaker "this person actually has real food with them!" and a big, Far-Side style red arrow suddenly pointing at your head as everyone turns to look at you!
    Hooray for planning ahead!

    I eat at work at lot also. One thing that has worked for me is giving my non-paleo food away. People don't argue with m when I'm offering them the hash browns that came with my omelet or my toast... in fact now they flat out ask me if they can have mine. I'm not necessarily doing their health any good, but I don't get comments about what I eat anymore.

    Emily got a reaction from cabindowntheroad in 3rd whole 30 and STILL not losing weight - what am I doing wrong?   
    LA28, for an in-depth explanation, look at some of Gary Taubes books (Why We Get Fat, Good Calories, Bad Calories). They are very interesting reads and explain both the history and the process.
    I'll echo what has been said:
    Be kind to yourself: your body, your mind, and your soul
    Eat more of everything (within the Whole30), including carbs
    Throw your scale off a cliff
    Let your body rest
    Here's my short story: I was the classic high-cardio, workout six days per week, count and log every single calorie female. I was also chronically tired, generally 10-20lbs overweight, and every year had the goal of being able to do one kipping pull-up.
    I started the Whole30, backed off to only walking (with my dogs who stop every three feet)... suddenly my weight went down and my energy went way up! AND one day at a playground, I was fooling around and realized that I could suddenly do pull-ups!
    Good luck. This is a mind shifting process. You can do it.
