    11/28...Ready to Start!

    @BornToBeHappy I think you did great!! @NoMoreCrunchyCravings You nailed it with your observation about enjoying cooking -- if its not your thing, this program could be overwhelming. I tried coconut shrimp with pina colada dip -- my overall impression was that it was too sweet and not very healthy. The dip with a big ole shot of rum sure would've been good! Tonight we're having CI's pressure cooker pulled pork recipe, sans the brown sugar (subbed with boiled cider) on sweet potato planks. I'm getting pretty tired of eggs, but they really do hold me well until lunch. 14 days behind us!

    Enough excuses! Starting 11/21!!

    @MizRik I am curious to hear the responses, because for me, it will be Christmas day. I thinking about calling my effort a Whole 28 and making a GF stuffing a test for grains. (I already know I have CD)

    Day 5, down in the dumps

    I slept a whole lot in the first week. It is pretty hard to make the transition, but it does get much better. Hang in there!

    Came home and son was pulling mozzarella cheese sticks out of the oven -- arrrrgh! They smell good! But I'm not blowing my plan for a lousy cheese stick! Pistachio pesto with spaghetti squash and chicken for dinner instead. @SugarcubeOD I started to add a small fruit with breakfast and lunch, and that seems to help hold me until the next meal. Small things like raspberries, blueberries, grapefruit. Thats OK to do, right?

    @Shelblandrum Facing a pizza right now would be hard for me to resist, so I think you deserve a medal or something!!!

    @BornToBeHappy lol, those guys are really something!! How's everyone doing? This is getting easier, and my pants are getting looser! But most of all, I really enjoy the sustained energy levels throughout the day -- no mid-morning and mid-afternoon slumps.

    Day 10 Y'ALL!!! Read that Day 10 is the biggest quit day, so I hope nobody decides to quit -- tiger blood is right around the corner, right? NSVs and observations: Discovered the awesomeness that is Instant Pot, especially chicken broth, spaghetti squash, HB eggs -- thanks, Amazon Black Friday sale Sleeping, alot. Not great quality yet because I still wake up in the middle of the night, but averaging over 8 hours of actual sleep The Meal Planner ap is great, I've found some real recipe gems already Tummy is still adjusting to the new menu, rumbly now and again, still feel a little bloated Black coffee is actually good, wish I knew this twenty years ago, I wonder how many calories I might have saved myself? Its alot of work making so many things from scratch -- mayo? cauliflower rice? LOL, they are pretty darned good, however. I forgot how delicious raspberries are. How's everyone else doing?

    Hi, can I join? I started on the 28th, too, one week in the books!! I slept a huge amount early in the week, but now I am finding that my energy levels are starting to hold steady through the day -- a HUGE NSV for me.
