    Hi - 4/10 was our start date too (husband/wife team).  Thank you for starting this thread.  It has some great tips on adding fat to our diet (thank you moderator)!  It's been going well so far.  We started this journey to really detox our body and start fresh again.  Yesterday (day 2), I had to run to the grocery store.  What a crazy experience after only 1.5 days on the plan... sugar cravings skyrocketed as I walked through the bakery... and I'm not even a fan of cakes and pies!  Suffice it to say, that was the quickest grocery run I've ever done!  My husband experienced headaches yesterday (I told him he needed more fats).  No headaches for me thus far, but I'm starting to get very tired and unmotivated today, late afternoon (3:30ish).  I also woke a little depressed today, which I thought was odd.
    Glad to join the crew!  Thanks in advance for all your help seeing us through this

    Day 1 for me as well! I completed 28 days in November / December and let a Christmas potluck win, a couple of weeks in January and an annual Manager's KickOff party won that time...this time, is mine!! I really felt the difference when I first tried in the Fall and have shared with many others (a couple are big promoters of Whole30 now too!) the incredible effects in how I felt (inflammation and energy). Trying to integrate a bit more with like minded souls this time to stay on track and encouraged...wishing you all well and looking forward to sharing our joys and lows

    Cool!  Keep it up.  I felt a little odd/emotional Day 2 so maybe that's part of the "turbulence" at the start?  I've had a few brushes with sugar as well where I've had to stop and remind myself, for example, that I can't have that hot chocolate (at least for 30 days...).  Let's keep this thread going and hopefully we can all support each other along the way.

    Hey there @Reegs - Particularly in these early days, or if you are prone to anxiety/depression, ensure you are eating at least a fist sized serving of starchy veg each day - that should help
    Also guys, don't forget to salt your food - switching to whole foods can cause a drop in sodium intake of around 60-70%, and your body needs sodium for normal metabolic functions. Sodium will also help prevent cramping, headaches, dizziness etc.

    Hi everyone! I started yesterday (April 10th) as well. Screwed up today by eating store-made veggie chips and then realizing those are a no-no. So I'll just tack on two extra days, but I'm trying to not think about it too much. Ultimately, I want this to be a life-style change, so I'm trying to just live in the moment and take it day by day rather than thinking it's "only" 30 days. I did a Whole30 a year ago and part of the reason I didn't keep up some of the positive effects was because I ran headfirst into a bag of chips on day 31. So this time around, I'm gonna try to stick it out and do the reintroduction properly. Congrats to everyone on their second day! We can do this.
