    How is everyone doing? My sugar cravings have been insane lately, but I am reluctantly managing them. Energy is higher and sleep is MUCH better. I also am able to manage my hunger between meals instead of being a crazy lady every two hours. Down 10 lbs! (Yes, I know I should not have weighed myself - but at least my "cheat" didn't include a brownie :-) )

    Yesterday (day 9) was my best so far. Interesting thing - A few months ago, I took a hot yoga class, and during one of the poses, I became instantly nauseous and dizzy and had to sit down. The instructor told me that the pose was intended to release toxins from certain organs, and that it was common for new people to experience my symptoms. Well, I never went back. Until yesterday. Same place, same pose. No nausea and dizziness. Might just be a coincidence, but I would like to believe that my new dietary changes have made a difference in the level of toxins in my body. Today, I am a little more tired than yesterday, but I still feel pretty good. Definitely in it for the long haul

    I downloaded the Nom Nom Paleo iPad app a couple of days ago. It's gorgeous. Trying out a couple of recipes in the coming week. Also have Kale and Brussel Sprouts on the list so that I can prepare based on your recommendations yesterday.

    I have never been much of brussel sprout fan or sweet potato fan, but after reading about so many people eating them, I think I will buy some this weekend. So day 4 - sinuses hurt, but can't blame that on the food - more likely our crazy Oklahoma weather. I'm feeling pretty good. Going to try to make it through the whole day without nuts, because I think that has become my new "junk" food.

    I am not as hungry today as I was yesterday. Seems like I couldn't get enough food. Probably ate too much fruit. So far today - two eggs and a handful of blueberries. Lunch will be avocado and tuna. Girls Night Out tonight - YIKES!

    It Starts With Food...

    Hello all! I introduced myself in a separate thread yesterday, but I thought it would be cleaner to start a fresh thread with better Topic Title. This is day two for us . . . . I'm a little tired, but I didn't sleep well last night. So far no food cravings, but I was a fairly healthy eater. I have pork in the crockpot at home. First time I have EVER made pork! I have been pescatarian for the last 20 years, but I am branching out in hopes to add more protein to my diet. Hope everyone is having a great day so far Kimberly

    Anyone else starting 1/22/13?

    I will start a new thread for all of us 1/22 starters. Glad there are so many of us!
  13. Hi, I'm starting today and wondering if anyone else would like to join a support group? This is my first Whole30, but I did a little test run for the last two weeks where I was about 80% compliant. I felt great by the end, so I can't wait to see how I feel when I am fully compliant. The biggest challenges for me will be incorporating more protein and less alcohol. Oh, and also not eating cheese!!!!!!!!! I will be tested several times over the next month - two wine tastings, two charity galas, and a trip to Colorado so far. Hoping for more energy, better sleep (total insomniac), and a flatter belly. Here's to good health! Kimberly
