  1. Low blood pressure

    Also Coconut Water is a great source of electrolytes and is compliant http://healthandwellness.kaplan.edu/articles/nutrition/Coconut water - Is it really natures sport drink.html
  2. quick breakfast ideas beyond eggs

    Best to make breakfast the night before and have it ready to grab and go. Frittata is great for this as well as cooked sausage patties that you can quickly heat and eat. Powders etc are not really food are they? You want to slow down and chew so your brain and your digestion understand you are sending in good healthy food. Perhaps getting up 10 minutes earlier to allow for some breakfast time? Hadley
  3. Meat and wine reduction

    I think if you are going along really well until now and don't have major allergies etc that you will be fine. I actually think you handled it very well. This is how I sometimes have to eat (dairy allergy) and I just have to do my best in the situation. Stressing about it does not help. Keep Calm and Carry ON! Hadley

    Hi Leah, well congrats on your Whole30 success! Glad you made it work in the end. I have started a FB group called Kiwis Who Whole30 in case you want to share your experience or join in for support in the future. I order from iherb once a week and spend over $100 each time (I buy grocery items and supplements) and the shipping is $4-$12 and it arrives in about 5 days. I have never been disappointed with them. All the best, Hadley Hi Leah! I hope your Whole30 is going really well? I am in NZ and maybe I can help you source some Whole30 compliant products and local recipes? I am a health coach in Wellington and I work with people doing Whole30 http://theremedyproject.co.nz/ I use iherb to purchase Collagen peptides, ghee, Lara bars, Epic bars etc. If I spend over $100 NZD it is very low shipping and great value. https://secure.iherb.com/tr/list?id=259145903&rcode=WJR340 Please get in touch if you have any more questions! I would be happy to help Hadley Fierlinger
  5. Vegan... Just starting out!

    HI Emt, good work making the connection that food impacts your health and also caring a lot about animals. It is often a hard balance to strike finding the best diet for your health and also making sure you are sourcing your food from good farmers that are caring about the environment. Yes I also would have to say that lentils tend to be problematic for IBS (I found this out my reintroducing them and WHAM!) and contribute to inflammation. If you are eating soy, I recommend that the bulk of soy you eat is fermented as in organic tempeh. It is easier on digestion. Arthritis is a disease of inflammation which is what makes the Whole30 so successful for people. I hope you find a way to reduce your IBS and Arthritis. Hadley
  6. Compliant Coconut Milk

    Hi there! Great detective work looking into the ingredients and searching up the 407 numbers! Manufacturers don't want to tell us what is really in our food do they? The Gum 407 is Carrageenan which is and non-compliant ingredient. And for good reason! This is from It Starts With Food "Carrageenan is Inflammatory if it gets into the body, which could happen if you have increased gut permeability. (Carrageenan is actually used to create inflammation in lab animals)." And I would like to suggest that all of us have some gut permeability which is why we are seeking better health. Best to keep away from these additives as they just work against you Have you tried making your own Almond Milk? It is so delish and way cheaper than store bought. Hadley
  7. Compliant Coconut Milk

    Hi Leah, The best coconut milk/cream in NZ is Aroy. It is free of any additives and the real deal! See if you can find it around where you live or try an asian grocery? I have a milk frother that I use to make a Almond milk latte. It is pretty great! Check Almond Milk brands for same additives etc as coconut milk. I often make my own which is so yummy!

  9. If you are feeling hungry try eating more protein and fat (olives, avo, coconut) with each meal. It is easy to think that the cooking fat is enough but in fact it isn't. If you can give your body more of these things you may find your hunger diminishes. But I find it relates a lot to my stress levels and my hormonal cycle as well. Most of all, be kind to yourself you are doing great! Hadley
  10. Also just found out from my partner he was making his smoothie with a whole can of coconut milk and a tablespoon of coconut oil! So obviously stopping that! Hadley
  11. Yes! You are going to do this! Well done. Just try to take one day at a time and not think about the rest of the days in front of you. You can do it day by day. You will be so pleased when you are finished! Hadley
  12. Ok, good to know Whole30 is not intended as a weight loss plan. We are following the meal plan, rules and meal times. Carbs have always been his issue and before Whole30 he was not eating potato or sweet potato and we added them in once a day as recommended. But for him it's not good. His smoothie is made with kale, spinach, cashew, banana, brazil nuts and coconut milk and he drinks it WITH LUNCH. Seems like a decent way to get fats into your system? He does this because he is really hungry around 5pm the smoothie makes him less hungry until dinner. We assume it is because of the fat in coconut milk. Other than the 1/2 a banana in the smoothie, the only other fruit is a bowl of blueberries every night with dinner. We will stay focused on the non scale victories and hope that over time weight loss is a side effect of living awesome. Whole60 her we come! Hadley
  13. Hello all, My partner (age 49) and I have just completed our second non consecutive Whole30 and my partner is disappointed that he has not lost any weight. He has lots of very positive non-scale victories but alas he was hoping to see a reduction in belly fat. He is normally very east to gain weight and very hard to loose so this sort of makes sense for him. We are carrying on and doing a Whole60 and just wondering what we could do to tweak things so we may see more changes? He lost 1-2 cm off his chest and belly so that is a good sign. I am thinking it is possible he is having too many carbs as sweet potato/potato as well as he has a smoothie midway through the afternoon and it has very little protein and a lot of fat. Unless he eats a huge lunch with tons of protein he is really hungry around 4-5pm. He doesn't drink coffee and has recovered from high cortisol although it has not been tested in a while. His sleep is very good and he has a low stress lifestyle. Just wondering if anyone has any ideas? Thanks

    Hi, I have a client who has this same issue and she has major digestive issues, hormonal issues as well and anxiety. You may want to go have your thyroid checked? It may be very connected. Best of luck! Hadley
