  1. Holiday advice

    I am just about to finish my round of whole 30 and I don't really plan to stray too far off it as I generally eat to a paleo template. However I am planning a holiday in December that will be 7 days and the food will be non paleo camp food that is part of my holiday package, so lunch will be sandwiches and muesli bars for example, the holiday will be abroad and I will be on horseback by day and swagging by a campfire at night so there isn't really much play with the food. Wheat bloats me and when I reintroduce it, I get cramping for a while and then get used to it, so how long do you think i need to allow to reintroduce grain? I should I insist on gluten free options and stick with that, given that there will only be bush toilets (i.e. squatting behind a tree), I still feel a little funny asking for gluten free when I am only intolerant to wheat. Any tips of how you managed in a similar situation?
  2. Sourcing food in Australia

    There is one coles brand bacon that is sugar free, we have a butcher here that smokes it sugar free, it tastes so different. I'd still love to find a brand of coconut amino's that are compliant. I have some in the cupboard which suffice for paleo eating but not whole 30.
  3. Starting July 7th

    The dreams are killing me, I am remembering my dreams every night which I don't often do, and every night I am sabotaging my whole 30, EVERY night without fail, last night I ate a white bread sandwich, I didn't even eat bread before I started a whole 30, in fact nothing I've dreamt about has been food I would normally eat. Jim4884 we have this amazing butcher close by and he makes all his sausages on the premises, most are completely grain free and compliant, they are all made from biodynamic or organically raised pasture fed meat, I get excited whenever I go to the butcher.
  4. Hello again

    hey there, I think I will need to do a whole 60 at least, I have some really bad sugar demons and I know from previous experience that 30 days doesn't cut it, then I think I will reintroduce a bit of dairy.
  5. Starting July 7th

    I'm going really well, the sugar cravings are lessening, I always find after dinner is the worst time for them I always crave something sweet and its hard to not even have a bit of fruit. My dreams have been intense and vivid, really insane stuff. Next week is going to be fairly hectic, we have so many things going on so I need to ensure I have food prepared, I will need a weeks worth of breakfast pre-made and I'll need grab and go lunches, I'm going to make a big sweet potato and pumpkin hash with sausage, something quick and easy to reheat daily.
  6. Starting July 7th

    Hi I started on the 7th too, how are you both going?
  7. Started 6th of July!

    I started on the 7th so I'll be going through the same stuff as at the same time, no one in my family whole 30 with me, in fact I am yet to tell my husband I have started one, he always says I get so crabby so i figure I'll tell him after that phase, but so far so good.
  8. Hello again

    Hello again, I've come back yet again to smash another whole 30, I'm currently on day 5 and have learnt a few things on transitioning to an easier whole 30, I'm on holidays from my personal training weights session for the school holidays (2 weeks) so it gives my body time to not have to do stuff and adjust, the second is that at the start of my cycle (TMI for some maybe?) I carb crave like cookie monster, so I started after that phase ensuring I've set myself up for success and given myself enough time with good habits before cookie monster makes another appearance. The third thing I have done is sign up to real plans which I am finding super easy. Day 3 has been the hardest so far, I went to bed early craving sugar, but woke day 4 feeling fine. Last night however I had a bizarre dream that someone was cuddling a giant hershey's chocolate kiss to bed and it was getting all melty and delicious oozing out of the foil wrapper...the dreams are gonna kill me lol. Does anyone else here have a start date similar to mine, I'd love a buddy to keep me company

    I've been slack in coming in here but whole 30 finished and of course on day 31 I finally make homemade almond milk OMG where have you been all my life. I've managed to have no caffeine for the whole 30 and have decided that dairy is now not for me (sob sob it's so yummy). I think my sugar addiction is now under control and I've lost 2kg. I'm a pretty all or nothing person so I think I'll drink the occasional coffee and allow myself to have some baked goods but apart from that I'm going to stick to a stricter paleo diet. I know I tolerate rice but I'd prefer to skip it and I've discovered activating my nuts as during the whole 30 I realised I can't tolerate cashews, but once soaked I'm all good. I'm making an apple and berry crumble for dessert tonight with cashew cream, it's sugar free and the topping is nuts and coconut, my husband laughed at what I was planning on indulging with but you know I'm not really wanting chocolate because of the dairy or anything laden with sugar that will be too sweet and disgusting anyway.

    Day 4 today and I'm feeling pretty good actually, the aches and pains and cravings have subsided. Tomorrow (day 5) will be the first day I have to get up early so we shall see how I fare tomorrow evening. Made a delicious Thai green chicken curry for dinner with lots of veg and sweet potato to soak up the coconut cream.
  11. Sourcing coconut aminos in Aust

    Thanks the nuilife one contains sugar, So that rules it out, thanks for the other links

    Day 3 here and I'm feeling it, I am craving junk food like you wouldn't believe, I'm not hungry but I want to eat, I want salty food and sweet food all at the same time. I think I'm going to cook some sweet potato for lunch to have with my left over lamb cutlets. I also had vivid dreams last night which I don't normally have and have had a lot of cramps in my legs I think it's from the caffeine withdrawal.
  13. Does anyone know where we can get coconut aminos in Australia, I have only found one which contains sugar or I'm happy to make it?

    Sorry on my phone and trying to get a hang of this forum

    It is just something that I drink too much of and need to start my day, then I end up drinking coffee all day. So I've switched my coffee for a black decaf with breakfast and no more coffee after that.
