    Hi guys. Things are going really well this time around (2nd full Whole30, with 2 mini-resets under my belt ). BIG QUESTION THO: This has been an issue for me for many, many months, and one I’m hoping this Whole30 will help resolve. MY SLEEP RHYTHM IS WHACKED!! I will fall hard asleep in the early evening, wake up 2 hours later and then I’m up til 2-3 am. I could sleep til noon the next day, easily, if I could. I’ve tried magnesium, melatonin, meditation, reading, alarms, hot baths, etc, all to no avail. My energy and clarity start to pick up after dinner and by 10:30 pm, I’m ready to take on the world!! ACK!! I’m eating well from the template with little to no snacking between meals. I exercise regularly and consider myself fit. Is there perhaps something hormonal going on? Any FOOD connections or thoughts that anyone can think of that could be contributing, or conversely, be a solution? This is a real problem that I have earnestly tried to resolve, but to no avail. Thanks for any feedback! Carry on! Steph

    Starting January 1st! This will be my 4th round. Ready and focused for another successful go. It’s always easier with friends!

    Game in! This will be my 4th W30. My first round was by far my most successful. I’d like #4 to be just as stringent with an even better reintroduction period. My fav book of the collection is It Starts with Food—it like my W30 Bible. I’m excited to do this new round with Melissa’s two new books and hope to find even greater success using them. Let’s do this, everyone!
