    Hey everyone! I have a snow day here in New York and had a great time doing some food prepping. Had AMAZING slow cooker wings for dinner and made a breakfast casserole. Was planning to do some turkey meatballs too but that MAY have to wait until tomorrow. @LoloShoe make sure you getting enough healthy fats in your meals! Whether that means a few nuts or olives or some avocado, even cooking with olive oil helps! I actually often feel the opposite on this program, almost as if there are times when I barely need a third meal on the day! I think it's all about how you balance the plate. And also, forgive yourself. It's a huge change and we are just in the beginning of the days. @MeganSchallom I'm with you on wanting to keep it going for a while longer. My wedding is on 5/25 and don't want to go until then because I'd like to enjoy the food that I'm spending $$$$$$$$$ on! LOL! My shower is April 27 and bachelorette party the next weekend. I would love to wait until April 1 to do my reintroductions but I'm going to see how it goes until then. I may also do what you are saying..reintroduce and recommit to FOOD FREEDOM FOREVER!

    Plan is to do a reintro on the back end, yes! That was actually the hardest part for me last time so I am really hoping to take it into serious consideration this time.

    Hi all! Spent the day shopping and prepping. I love how excited I am to start up again and feel really motivated. @Lauraco I waited until the 11th (tomorrow) to start just because I needed to give myself sometime to get prepped and last week was a bit stressful for me. I was happy to have this past week and weekend to meal plan and prep. Lunches are made for the week and that is vital to my success. Thirty days will bring me to March 13 which just works out well for my timeline. I want to reintroduce by Easter. Thanks! Ana @Foodmorning yes we can definitely support each other! I did rely heavily on the forums last time and think I will need the support again. As for breakfast, don't be afraid to heat up some leftover dinner. The first time it's weird but at the end of the day food is food. If you like steak I liked it with some lettuce and strawberries for breakfast. I also love avocado in the morning! Good luck on day 1!

    Hi Everyone! I am starting my Whole 30 on Monday, February 11, 2019. I did a Whole30 about two years ago and loved the results. I am currently on Weight Watchers and have lost about 25 pounds since September but I feel myself slipping into eating some foods that Whole30 proved to me were not the best for my body and self. Looking forward to a month of recommitting to it. I am getting married in May and just want to feel my best which I did on Whole30! Here we go... Joanna

    Seems like you're doing well! I have slipped a little bit but keep referring back to Food Freedom Forever for reminders and inspiriation. I am facing the fact that I should probably be avoiding dairy. Ever since reintro I have not been able to properly clear my throat because of extra congestion. Yes it could also be due to seasonal allergies but the timing is on dairy reintro is too obvious for me to ignore. I also think I want to stay away from gluten. Though my side affects weren't crazy apparent I now have noticed some bloating and general swelling the day after bread. This has to be my new Food Freedom and I need to adjust! :-)

    Today I am going for dairy. Started out the morning with actual cream in my coffee and cheese on my eggs. The cream tasted way to heavy and I went back to my sugar free almond milk for the second cup. Even the cheese in my eggs I wasn't all that into. It's sad-- I always thought I loved cheese! I felt a little wonky afterwards if I am being to totally honest to my feelings. I'm not sure I even want any dairy the rest of the day. I have laughing cow cheese wedges for lunch and thought I may get some fro-yo later. We will see. I want to see how I feel after dairy and I was so excited for cheese but then-- disappointment. I'll check in with how I feel later or tomorrow. Gluten comes on Sunday which works out since we are hosting a BBQ so I will have a burger with a bun.

    Ugh just typed a whole bunch about my reintroduction and it disappeared. The long and short of it is... 1. I did legumes. No adverse reactions.lon 2. Since I am slow-rolling I have had some foods that have added sugar but will not have any straight up sugar for a long time I am hoping. No candy, cakes, dessert until at least Easter and I'd love to just kick the habit for like 95% of the time. 3. I drank alcohol--- Magner's cider to be specific. I did not reintro it as properly as I should have but feel totally normal besides being a little tired from a crazy long and hectic weekend. 4. Tomorrow will be the reintroduction of non-gluten grains. I am so excited for popcorn I can barely stand it.

    I had the same thing about 10 minutes ago! Bought a few at Target. The price is a bit much but were good for on the go.

    I'm sure the moderators will know better but I think you can add the beans in for a day as long as you go strict whole 30 for the next two days. I am kind of doing something similar. I don't really want to fully begin reintroduction until at least Sunday because I am a musician and playing in a show and just don't want to risk not feeling well with that kind of pressure. I have decided not to be crazy strict with sugar watching until I am following up my reintro days. Today, the one thing I wouldn't have had on a strict Whole 30 were some kettle chips* that were packaged and had a few "sneaky sugars" in them. The other not totally Whole 30 thing I did today was snacking, but to be honest it was more because of my schedule. I packed as if to eat meals but just kind of had to eat them as snacks. We are in testing in NY schools so my first free period today was 8th period (1:45) and I knew I needed to eat but only had a few minutes here or there/inbetween periods/awkwardly at my desk while kids were working lol. And then with rehearsal for this show I kind of fell into the same pattern. Unfortunately tomorrow will be quite similar schedule wise so I am again going to stay basically Whole 30, no big reintros. I may be able to eat lunch at 1, but I would need to eat dinner at 4:15/30 so I will probably eat again after the show (say 10 o'clock) as well. I will see how I feel and go from there. *as for the kettle chips, I wanted to try something that isn't a terrible trigger for me but enough of one to work on going back afterwards. I started reading Food Freedom Forever and I am coming to terms with the relationship I've had with food in the past, during the Whole 30, and in the future. It is important for me to learn to have a "trigger" food and then move away from it (as Melissa talked about the Cadbury Creme Egg in the book I envied her ability to put it away for a year, and I guess ideally that's the goal, right?). The most interesting thing is that a co-worker asked me how it was, and, well, eh. They were crunchy which I missed, and that's about it. I'm excited not to go to that food again for a while. Food freedom...a work in progress.
