    Helloooo! Day 1 Feb. 25th!

    Sunbella - How fabulous that you succeeded the first 11 days! Consider that as a warm-up for this Whole30. I'm sure you learned valuable lessons during those 11 days - and the days that followed. I would consider that anything but a failure. Best wishes towards health!

    Helloooo! Day 1 Feb. 25th!

    Jenn - Welcome to your health! and to the forum. My favorite part of this entire eating philosophy is no counting! Follow the meal planning template. Be sure you're avoiding all the avoids. Eat when you're hungry. Forget the counting! Enjoy the freedom.

    Starting September 10!

    The good news is that simply replacing your lean cuisine meals with real food with have a tremendous impact on your life! Keep it simple the first time through the whole30. Just remember the meal template - grab a quality protein, LOTS of veggies and a healthy fat and you're good to go! Best wishes for much success.

    Eating Disorder Help/Thoughts/Questions

    I appreciate your courage in telling your story. While there are never easy answers, you might begin to find some help through these posts: http://whole9life.com/2012/04/sometimes-it-is-hard/ http://whole9life.com/2012/02/whole30-gone-bad/ And I definitely recommend the Whole30 Daily. I have done numerous Whole30's and have followed the spirit of the plan for well over 2 years now, yet I still learn something everyday from the daily!

    W30 in the "Land of Enchantment"

    PhannieMae - Be sure to take a good look at the Whole30 meal template. and spend lots of time on the Whole30 blog. Each meal should consist of a great protein, LOTS of veggies and a healthy fat. The Whole30 is just the beginning. You want to find a sustainable eating plan for life. I suggest you focus on upping your veggie intake significantly. One of my favorite breakfasts is meat and spinach muffins. http://www.theclothesmakethegirl.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/02/meatandspinachmuffins_wellfed.pdf. May days I have a salad with my breakfast or I have whatever combo of meats and veggies I had for dinner the previous evening. Beefing up on your veggies and healthy fats should take care of many of the issues you have mentioned. Best wishes!

    Kale Krunch

    Tom's right, of course. Any of those commercial kale products I've seen are ridiculously overpriced. The real deal is by far my favorite veggie. I could eat it everyday!

    Scale temptations

    The human body is a very complex machine and trying to sum ourselves up in one simple metric is foolish at best and hazardously counterproductive at worst. So true, Dan!
