  1. I just can't imagine...

    Have you seen the Whole30 Calendar? It's been eerily accurate for my husband and I and it sounds like some of the things you are experiencing are on the calendar, but maybe she is getting them on a delay? She may want to think about sticking with it past the 30 days.
  2. Help

    Hi All, I am doing my first W30 and my husband has agreed to join me in this venture (this is a VERY big deal). While I am not a hugely healthy eater normally, I've always enjoyed vegetables and actual whole protein sources. My husband, on the other hand, is a man-child in the way he eats. He's a soda addict and prefers boxed/processed foods (his favorite food is mac and cheese and hot dogs) to anything else and hates most vegetables. On top of that he works midnight shift on a 2-3 on 2-3 off basis so his eating is erratic and hard to get on a schedule to say the least. He will not read the book and relies on me to tell him what he can and cannot have and prep food for him, which I'm happy to do. The problem is getting him to eat vegetables or even try something new is literally like fighting a toddler, except I can't give him a timeout. I worry that he is taking more of an Atkins approach to this and only eating proteins and fats. Any suggestions for getting him to actual eat veggies or any W30 veggie juices that anyone could recommend (I know this isn't a preference but I'm desperate)? I don't want to turn to constantly nagging him, which would turn any positive experience this should be into a negative one. I've listed all the items he refuses to try/eat below for reference. Thanks for any advice! No List: Zucchini, squash, onion (of any variety), broccoli, cauliflower, brussel sprouts, spinach, asparagus, bok choy, beets, eggplant, kale, okra, radishes Yes List: carrots, green beans, mushrooms, lettuce (only if it's on something) RM
