    MagCitra

    Thank you; I do realize that, but for personal reasons I want to be as careful and compliant as I can. I already have a call in to my Dr asking if I can take any brand of Magnesium Citrate 1900 since that is the requirement or if it needs to be specifically the one prescribed.

    MagCitra

    My Dr prescribed MagCitra which contains a trace amount of maltodextrin, yet the box states ‘no added sugar or salt’ and free from gluten, soy, etc. Am I still Whole30 compliant if I continue to take this?
  3. I successfully completed 3 Whole 30’s and a couple of 2 week resets over the past year and a half. I was comfortable with what I thought was true food freedom until about 6 weeks ago, when I left the country for a 6 week extended vacation. I started out making conscious choices to exercise my food freedom, but before I knew it, one more bagel and unfamiliar chocolates all became OK. My biggest disappointment in myself is that I started justifying again...”oh it’s OK, I’m on vacation...’I can’t pass this up’...’It’s my birthday’... ‘ but today’s the baby sprinkle’...’I don’t have the time to prep’...’one more won’t hurt’ ...’I haven’t seen them in sooo long’...etc, etc, etc. I thought I had conquered my sugar dragon and healed my relationship with food, but now I find myself back at square 1...maybe square 2 because I do know, understand, and believe in all the technical info and I understand and had been successful (for a time) in exercising my food freedom the right way. I am living outside of the US right now so hiring a Whole30 coach and finding many compliant prepared foods are out out of the question. (fortunately I brought 3 bottles of coconut aminos with me). Can anyone PLEASE give me some advise on how to come out of the woe is me, guilty failure mindset? I am starting a Whole30 on the 15th when I go back to work, jet lag gets better, and I can be fully prepped for success. Tired of feeling sorry for myself, malamusa

    Thank you Shannon. It really helped to read that information again. I am definitely going to write down my non-scale victories which are considerable. I am trying...

    Hi All, I am new to this forum; however, I just completed my first Whole30. I was feeling a lot better, but even though I wasn't supposed to focus on weight loss, it was always in the back of my mind. I decided a week ago, BTW, that I would be continuing for a Whole90! Anyway, I got on the scale this morning (day 31) to find that I had only lost 8 lbs. I am only 5 feet tall and was 205 pounds when I started-HUGE. I expected to lose at least 10 lbs and so I am very disappointed. I am trying to fight the feeling of disappointment, but I cannot seem to do that right now. I have always had a weight issue and in my lifetime of 58 years I have lost and gained at least 280 lbs. so I am sure this has had a negative impact on my metabolism. I cannot do high impact exercise due to arthritis in my knees and spine as well as disc herniation and degeneration at L4-L5 and L5-S1. I want to continue eating clean like this and I certainly have experienced other improvements in my health, but I cannot stop feeling this sense of defeat and disappointment. Is there any way I can continue on the Whole30 and continue to lose a substantial amount of weight weight? PLEASE help me...
