    Hi everyone how are you doing? I got all the prep done last night but forgot my fat for my breakfast and my lunch. I used fat in the prep but intended to include avocado with both meals...weird to worry about forgetting the fat. I weighed myself this morning and took a before pic of my face without makeup before my shower my h will take the before pics of my body tonight. Enjoyed the Superbowl and its indulgences tremendously but feel ready and able to tackle this. My challenge will come when I get home after work but I have strategies

    I searched Pinterest and the Whole 30 book for recipes and uploaded them to pepperplate.com It allows you to store recipes and put your menus on a planner plus it generates a shopping list for you.

    Ye Absolutely! I plan to make egg muffins on Sunday to feed me all week. Not sure what fat is in the recipe but I wouldn't mind topping them with avocado.

    There is a Template on this site...can't remember which tab at the top but you can find if if you search for Meal Template you will find it. It is 1-2 servings of protein about the size of your palm a piece of fruit and the rest of your plate veggies also 1-2 thumb lengths of fat or 1/2 an avocado....A boat load of food for sure I found the link here you go http://whole30.com/downloads/whole30-meal-planning.pdf

    So sad it is non Compliant but so glad I found it out now. I am going to hunt for something that will work and let you know what I find.

    I just read the label and realized that it contains "Soy Lecithin" now I don't know if it is compliant so I will check it out and report back

    I am also hoping for better sleep and more energy. I have a hard time working up the motivation to work out in the winter and I hope this will give me the boost I need to move more.

    I am starting the 6th too. Looking forward to it. Good Luck! Do you all mind if I check in here to see how things are going or if I am feeling weak? I want to drop a bit of weight but am hoping to clear up my life long sinusitis as well as my rosacea. I love wine and dairy those will be my toughest challenges. Emw3o I hope you enjoy not weighing and measuring! I hope you find it to be a really liberating experience.

    I have a fruity herb tea that I think will work well to replace the ritual of red wine and the bubbly water with lime or the mocktails in the book will be my cocktail substitute. It will be hard for a day or two but I hope it gets easier over time. I tell myself "If alcoholics can give it up what will it say about you if you can't." But I will miss it big time. Good Luck!
  11. I have to travel over an hour to get to a TJs so am wondering if I should order from Amazon instead.

    Hi, thanks for responding...I have been obsessively planning and replanning lol. I saw a recommendation for pepperplate.com, (there is also an app) and I think it is going to be really helpful as a planning tool. I am about 1.5 hours from the closest Trader Joes and will be stopping by there next weekend to stock up. My husband is totally on board with me doing this but hasn't read the book. So though I am the cook and he will eat what I prepare he isn't fully committed to the reset idea. I have a college basketball game to attend on 2/11. There will be a tailgate party so I have to plan for what to eat and drink and what to say but I have faith. I think the hardest thing for me will be giving up wine in the evenings....I have not gone without several alcoholic beverages a week for a significant period of time since I was pg with my son who will be 22 in May. But I feel like if I can't go cold turkey for a month then I have a problem that needs more than the Whole 30 ya know. and I refuse to be "that girl" So anyway I am feeling positive and a bit nervous but am looking forward to this.
  13. Anyone else? I am 55 and anxious to figure out if there is a food related cause to my life-long ENT/Sinus issues and my rosacea. Also would like to drop a few lbs but mostly the quality of health issues but don't want to miss out on the fun of cheering on the Patriots with snacks and drinks.
