    Whole30 & Trying To Conceive

    Best of luck with your journey! I did the Whole30 in January 2017 for the first time. It started to regulate my hormones but of course I didn't stick with it! My husband and I have been TTC for 5 months but I just found out I'm not ovulating regularly. Now we are going back to the drawing board! I'm going to start another round so I can regulate these silly hormones! We are here for support, we're all in this together!! Good luck

    I'm so sorry you have to deal with PCOS. It doesn't seem fair that those that want babies can have such a hard time! I just found out that I'm not ovulating regularly so I'm looking to do the Whole30 again to regulate my hormones. Best of luck to you and your fiance! You can do this!!

    This community is seriously so great! I look forward to reading all the posts for the day and I feel encouraged just from all the positivity. Tonight was a really big milestone for me because after I finished dinner I didn't think about food once! I didn't imagine dessert or a snack and I walked right through the the kitchen to my room without even a glimpse at the fridge! I haven't felt many of the side effects or benefits from the reset (yet) but this progress is so uplifting. I'm already worried about how my life will be afterwords, if I will fall back into my old habits or just feel lost! Good luck with the rest of this journey. You are great!

    Let's talk (non-traditional) breakfasts

    This thread is awesome! I got so many new ideas for breakfast. Does anyone have some yummy breakfast/meal 1 soups that they like? Sometimes I miss having warm oatmeal on a chilly morning so maybe a type of stew would be satisfying!

    Whole30 & Trying To Conceive

    So far I feel pretty good! Just really tired. But I'm really lucky because I'm not working right now so I'm able to focus on going to the gym, making good meals, and sneaking in naps. I just haven't been able to sleep well at night, which has been frustrating. But I'm told that gets better as the month goes on. How about you? You said this is your second round, right?

    Ideas of how to get your mind off of food?

    Now that the Whole30 has started I've found that drinking water really does help! It's a little lame but I look forward to drinking mineral water in my fancy wine glass with lots of ice. Plus reading the forum helps me feel connected to the community and I forget all about cravings! Hope you're doing well!!

    Whole30 & Trying To Conceive

    Congratulations on deciding to grow your family, ladies! If it's okay I'd like to stay in touch too, my husband and I are also TTC. I just started my first round on January 2 and I'm really hoping it balances my hormones and helps everything go smoother. Good luck!!

    Compliant Chicken Broth

    I almost bought that one the other day but it has some form of yeast in it, which makes that one kind of a grey area! But I did find an organic one at Walmart that's compliant.

    Thank you for the tip about the tea! I've been looking for things to take my mind off the cookies and milk my husband has before bed. What are some of your favorite tea combinations? I'm thinking of getting some cute mugs to drink it out of too, just trying to keep things fun. Good luck with everything!

    That attack sounds really scary! Hopefully you're able to recover quickly and take on the rest of the challenge. Let us know how you improve!

    Yeast Extract in organic chicken stock?

    Great thank you!
  13. This has probably been addressed but I can't find it at the moment. Is yeast extract allowed in chicken broth? It's organic! I just cant make my own yet so thought I'd buy some. Thanks!!

    You can do this! It's my first round so I can't speak from much experience but just focus on the days that you have completed so far. There are tiny accomplishments that we can still get excited over even though this is just the beginning. Best of luck!

    Oh my goodness my husband eats the same way! In fact, as I type this right now he's downing a plate of cinnamon rolls and cookies. They smell so good! But I haven't cheated and I've tried to separate his unhealthy food from mine. Actual meals are fine because we pretty much eat the same food but he'll add rice or bread, which doesn't really bother me. It's those sweet snacks! Have you found any tricks that helps you get through? It's awesome you've done a Whole30 before, congrats! You'll definitely be able to power through this round. Good luck!
