  1. Starting 2 weeks from today, April 17

    So my first weekend on whole 30 is getting off to a rough start. I avoided birthday cake, pizza, chips and alcohol last night at a party but may have slipped getting sweet potato fries from a restaurant. They sounded compliant and I even asked for them to be baked not fried. I don't know if it's just because I ate them so late at night or because they cooked them in a bad oil or what but getting up this morning my stomach feels heavy and bloated. I would hate to think after avoiding all those foods I messed up with sweet potato fries when I wasn't even trying to eat non-compliantly. What do I do? Start over or keep going and try to make a better choice when I have to go out to a different restaurant tonight?
  2. April 17th Newbie

    Hello Everyone, I will be starting my first Whole 30 after Easter weekend on the 17th! My birthday is on the 15th and with Easter there was no way I wanted to start before then. I didn't want to wait even longer just to start it at the beginning of a new month either and put it off. I've been wanting to try this for quite some time but choosing a start date took some serious thought. I tend to eat out A LOT and I plan to give that up for these 30 days and cook my meals at home to eat throughout the day. I know I'm not strong enough right now to try and find Whole 30 compliant meals at restaurants. Bravo to those of you that can manage that hurdle! I'm looking forward to a fresh start and building healthy habits. Good luck to everyone starting out. I hope we can all find the support we need here

    Hi there, I'm also starting out on the 17th. It will be my first time trying Whole30. I figured after Easter weekend, which also happens to include my birthday would be best. After all the food this weekend, I think the first week of Whole30 is going to be rough for me doing it solo in a house of 4. Hopefully we can all find support enough to make it through on here!

    Right there with you - excited and nervous! I'm starting on the 17th as well. My birthday is on the 15th ... that plus Easter I figured waiting until after the weekend to start would be best.
