  1. Hi all, Emily, are you by chance the same Emily I was in Dragonslayers with a few years back? Rebecca, I did my first W30 in 2017 and second in 2018, and i am just in food freedom now, so whatever works for you is good IMO. I am not a moderator or anything, so remember what you paid for my opinion
  2. Did you start a Whole 30 Queen? I did my first Whole 30 in 2017 and it changed my life in so many positive ways. Went from pre-diabetic to completely normal blood sugar, got off of blood pressure meds and my BP is lower now; lost 40 lbs; lifelong mild eczema gone; inflamed arthritic ankle improved that I can now run again; etc etc etc I've maintained these gains for almost 5 years now..,
  3. Shannon stated it well, if you can go 4-5 hours between meals without going hungry, you're probably doing fine. I've been (mostly) Whole-30ing for 2.5 years and still not sure about the fats - my experience is that not enough tends to cause hunger more quickly, but you're not going to hurt yourself nutritionally if you're on the low side. Protein and veggies are the key things to be sure you're getting enough of. I'm lucky, I never get tired of eggs - but even as a 200+ pound male, I don't eat more than 2 eggs despite being able to easily hold 4 in my hand (big hands lol ) I do add breakfas
  4. The way I always think about it is, it's only 30 days! I can do almost anything for 30 days. Like several other people on this thread, I was a soda junkie, and I too had the NSV of kicking my soda habit. La Croix is pretty good, I do teas as well, but I honestly don't miss soda anymore. And if you had told me that prior to my first Whole 30, I would have laughed at you. Out loud. To your face Good luck!
