    I'm in Houston and it was in the 'seasonal summer' section of krogers, which is a grocery store

    I love shopping!! And having a cart full of veggies! I even bought canvas grocery bags that say 'you look radishing' on them!!!

    Welcome! My advice? Eat more not less. Trust me. You probably aren't eating enough if you are counting out the number of tomatos. You are replacing a lot of high calorie options with low calorie ones so fill the plate and make sure you eat until you are full!

    On birth control...shouldn't have my period

    I don't actually get my period anymore and yes I agree that food can cause changes in mentration, however I did want to share that my experience with the implant was fluctuations even without diet changes.

    On birth control...shouldn't have my period

    I had implanon years back and some months I would spot and some I would get a period and some month I got nothing and some months I nearly bled to death. I don't know that the diet is the cause moreso than at least in my experience my period fluctuated wildly while I had an implant. And I had it over a year before the first heavy period started. I can't remember much before that.

    I ended up giving up coffee for the 30 days. I couldn't handle the coconut oil. I hope it works for you! Someone also suggested nutpods. I'm sure you can find it if you search coffee on the forums. (Yes despite being done I'm hanging out in ya'll thread because my support thread ended up with no people in it by the end and that sucked! So I'm going to stay with ya'lls! And let you know YOU CAN MAKE IT!) <3

    I plan to continue on just not 100% strict. I like my coffee with a little cream and sweetener, so I've brought that back in, a little wine, and I've had some cheese. I also had a little bit of beans yesterday (little did I know that catered lunch would be MEXICAN). I'm not even close to ready to feel like reintroing grains, and I figure leaving out desserts and other items for some time is good for my health, my blood pressure, and my weight anyway! Today we went out to eat and it was nice to not have to be SUPER picky about the food while still eating fairly well, with green beans and sweet potatoes as my side dish and the pork stuffed with apples and mushrooms, even if there was a little butter or sugar in the recipe, I felt very comfortable eating it.

    I was going to reply the same. Remember. Don't worry about eating too much. You are eating Whole Foods. You are eating things that are dense in nutrients with less calories than the carb-packed processed foods before. It might FEEL like a lot of food. But a Pile of veggies isn't many calories. An 8oz chicken breast isn't many calories. 4 eggs is only 320 calories and the rest of your meal is veggies with maybe 150 cals of healthy fat. So don't focus on 'too much'. Simply eat what is allowed according to the template, eat until you are full. Eat enough to go 4-5 hours. And enjoy it!

    Intestinal issues...day 16

    I had a lot of squishy and nearly diarrhea movements all throughout my whole 30. Even on day 29.

    Intestinal issues...day 16

    My stomach issues definitely got worse before going back to more normal. But even the other night I woke up twice and had to take pepto :/

    Definitely make sure you get the fat or you will get hungry.

    Proud of you too! I bought cute canvas bags for my produce that say 'aren't you raddishing!' for your lunch you probably got hungry because you didn't eat much! Make sure you have fat and veggies too to round out the meal and the fat keeps you satisfied longer. I know it feels weird to eat it, but it's worth it. My breakfast: 2 eggs, 1 chicken spinach sausage, fistful of spinach, 1/2 avocado, 2 mushrooms diced topped with salsa Had some grapes with my daughter before lunch which was 1/2 chicken breast and 1/2 large baked potato, huge pile of broccoli and the other 1/2 avocado. I wouldnt worry about eating too much Worry about eating not enough Make sure you have veggies, protein and fat at every meal. Afterall almost 75% of your choices are going to be lower calorie than you are used to. keep it up! #day30

    Last day! It's kinda bittersweet because I do miss some things, and I don't feel my health improved like I had hoped but I have lost weight and do also feel I could eat mostly compliant the rest of my life.
