  1. Oh man! That sounds so painful for him! I have it in my feet. Whole30 has really helped with my gout, but oddly enough I have yet to pinpoint what causes my flare-ups. The good news is with my Food Freedom I rarely have flare-ups anymore.
  2. @Brewer5 that's so cool you got a sign! I love when that happens. I just put that book you mentioned on hold. I cannot wait to read it. Thanks for sharing!
  3. @BabyBear thanks for sharing your journey on Food Freedom! What a great job realizing how you felt after the cupcake! I loved how you realized the frozen pizza was not worth it for you. At the moment it can be easy just to have a little nibble and think it won't matter, but those little nibbles add up - as most realize in their Whole30 rounds! I love it when I realize our meal was compliant, even without trying! Cooking as a family is a wonderful gift you can give your boys. Kudos to you and your family!! I hope your husband's flare-up passes quickly. I have gout and it is the worst!
  4. Hi @1colorfulmama! I have 7-year-old twins so I hear you that it can be a challenge when they are going through a picky phase. I have found that when my kids are involved with picking out foods, recipes, and even cooking they are more likely to try it. We also ask that they take a few bites at every meal. We call them "no thank you bites". The great thing is after a few tries, they often realize they like it. I have figured out that one of my twins likes his veggies better raw and will eat way more of them that way. He also went through a no meat phase and would only eat shrimp. My daughter we
  5. @UnkleEm Hi! Having support and a friend to do Whole30 with will make a big difference! How are you both doing? You are on Day 13? Any NSV's you have noticed?
  6. Hi @LilliMarlene! Welcome to Whole30! That is great that you are preparing for your round ahead of time! It will make a difference in your success for sure! Do you have any questions about the program? Having a support system, in person and even online, will help you on your journey! This forum is a great place to ask questions, get encouragement, and know that you are not alone.
  7. Hi @beachbaby Rhonda! Way to go being on Day 6 already! I am glad you found this forum! Having support and encouragement goes a long way to being successful on your Whole30! You totally got this! I love sharing recipes! Are there any you are looking forward to trying? Do you need any suggestions? Just remember, not every meal (or any meal for that matter) needs to be complicated or fancy! Some of my favorite compliant meals are the easiest!
  8. @learning40 I had to laugh about your toddler throwing the "ball". LOL How's today going for you?
  9. Oh my @SchrodingersCat that dinner sounds amazing!!! I love Chicken Saltimbocca!
  10. @Dashley116 have you been gluten this whole time or have you been eating Whole30 since the reintro of the two? Sorry you are now sore, too! This is definitely why we separate items out when reintro. Sometimes we have to separate out even groups further to be able to figure out which item could be causing any issues. For instance, some folks can eat goat's cheese/milk, but not cheddar without experiencing issues.
  11. @Amura that's so awesome!!! I love how you have changed your mindset! Way to go!!
  12. @kbreitmayer great question and observation! Technically this, nut cheeses, and dips ARE compliant (with compliant ingredients), but these items should be used with caution, especially if you rely on cheese as a comfort or stress-relieving food. Or if cheese is a trigger for other food cravings (like wine and crackers). We suggest that program participants use these items with caution and think about whether including these foods in Whole30 is a healthy-choice for them and their goals. Hope this helps!
  13. Hi @Sofija Dunjic! Congrats on being on Day 10 and staying compliant while being ill! The timeline is just a general timeline and not everyone experiences it or on the days laid out. A big factor is also how/what you ate prior to Whole30. My first Whole30 I had the absolute worst detox symptoms and for about 8 days. I completed a round in January with mostly no detox symptoms or any of the items from the timeline. I know before this round I was mostly eating Whole30 (as that is my FF) and before my first round that was definitely not the case!! I had a lot to get out of my system. Sounds
  14. @LindaC your meals sound tasty! Now I want some lemon soup!! Fingers crossed on our knee! What will your workout be?
  15. @Ktinegv those meals sound and look delic! The mango with the shrimp looks like a perfect pairing! Taking photos is a great way to remember meals and to check your ratio on your plates for sure! Hope your head is feeling better today!
