  1. Day 30 done, lost 11.2 lbs!!!!

    Hooray! My day 30 is on Tuesday - excited to start adding in some more variety (and chocolate!). Even though we weren't supposed to, I've been weighing myself periodically and I'm down 10 lbs so far - very pleased with the results. I've considered doing a 'weekday vegetarian' thing, but with whole3o instead. Possibly do Whole30 M-F and get in some other foods on the weekends. I'm not sure how successful it would be...but willing to try it out!
  2. Vegetarian proteins - Tofu ok?

    I have been using the 'modified for vegetarians' whole30 program, so have been including tempeh and tofu, even though tempeh also includes some rice, which is not allowed in the original or vegetarian plans. I've also been including some shelled edamame that I use to make curry or stir fry. It might depend on your reason for following this plan as well. My main reason was to break my habit of eating so much processed sugar, so it's not a big deal to me that I include things that aren't exactly in the program, as long as I keep them to a bare minimum and avoid those processed/added sugars in my food. I made some amazing broccoli soup last week - As for making tempeh taste good - I have been eating it with some sauteed veggies and seasoning them copiously (cumin, oregano, anything you like) then putting some salsa and avocado on top.
  3. I am on day 7 today, so just finishing up my first week on the vegetarian program. My sources of protein have been Eggs, Tofu, Tempeh, and a bit of edamame in my curry last night. So far, I have been feeling surprisingly well. I was really worried that I would have bad withdrawal symptoms that I've heard about, but I didn't. The only thing I felt was a bit more tired, so I ended up not working out as much this first week as I had hoped. Looking to get back to my regular fitness schedule in week 2! My biggest problem so far is boredom. I'm starting to get really bored with the food I'm eating, especially breakfasts - which are usually eggs, spinach (or other type of leafy green) and some potatoes. I don't have a lot of time to cook in the mornings, but I wish there was something different I could make! I'm able to prepare Chia pudding for a few mornings. How is everyone else's journey going so far?
