    Round 3!!!!

    Starting my third round tomorrow (September 1st) and boy am I excited! I completed my first round last summer which was okay ~ although I admittedly lost too much weight bc I was working out an insane amount and just not eating enough. I completed my second round this past Feburary, which was MUCH easier, as I exercised like a normal person and wasn't hangry 247. This go around - I am looking to lose a little summer weight I gained after a summer of lots of drinking and good eats. I'm settling back into my last year of grad school and am excited to get back to routine! I'm a 23 y/o female who loves to workout which is usually my problem when I do whole 30 (not eating enough!) I am allergic to treenuts, which eliminates a lot of protein sources. Any ideas? Would love to connect with some of y'all!

    Oils in seeds

    Noted. but on the official rules by Melissa, it still says those types of oils are allowed- just in moderation.

    Oils in seeds

    I came across a thread where a moderator had said that oils such as canola oil or sunflower oil are banned unless outside of home when there's no other option (ie dining out) ?? I am having a hard time understanding this. I just purchased pumpkin seeds roasted in canola oil and ate these during my entire round of w30 last time and thought that was fine? I am allergic to tree nuts which is why I've always turned to pumpkin seeds as a go to snack since other nuts are off limits for me. I lost 7 lbs when I did whole 30 in the summer and at 5'5, 124 lbs I really do not want to lose any more weight this round! So I need denser snacks with high calories. I am a little confused why something silly like this oil is only "allowed" out of the home in emergencies. little things like this question this program and the intention of it - as some people are just doing it to reset their gut and not necessarily fix a relationship with food/ lose weight or anything of the sorts. Which brings me to the point of the no snacking rule - my digestive system truly cannot handle 3 big meals throughout the day. I cannot force myself to eat that or I will get sick;, 4-6 small meals is what works for me (and many other people) and I thus never understood that rule of the program. Any insight is appreciated thank you!
  4. Finishing up day 3 of whole 30 + in the midst of packing tomorrow's snacks I (to my surprise) looked at the back of the pumpkin seed ingredients and saw pumpkin seeds, and/OR canola/soybean oil. SOS! I can't believe I didn't notice this- I guess I just assumed the only ingredient was pumpkin seeds? It says and OR canola / soybean so Idk the odds there was soybean ?? I've only had them once or twice since I've started. Reallllly don't want to start over- and last round I discovered that soy wasn't an issue so im hoping the minuscule amount I may have consumed will be just fine if I avoid these seeds for the rest of the time being ? -or just find compliant ones. Thanks!!!!

    Second w30! Starting 1/7

    Hey there! Starting my 2nd round of whole30 on Jan 7th. I'm in NJ for the holidays- and will be returning back to CO on the 2nd. Giving myself the weekend to prep and meal plan. Anyone else not starting on that traditional Jan 1st date? I previously did whole30 in the summer. My only problems were that I 100% did not eat enough- especially for how active I am. I even did a half marathon during it. No halves during this one- but I do have one mid Feb and then a full in May. Goals this time around: 1. MORE FOOD. I was constantly sooooo hungry last round. I never deprived myself but just felt I was constantly eating/snacking bc I was never satisfied. 2. Avoid major binge post w30!! I had a whole reintro plan that went down the tube the next day. I had one 'bad' thing (I think it was popcorn at my bf's if I can remember lol) and then it all went downhill. Not sure if I need the strict reintro- I pretty much know what bothers me at this point ( dairy, artificial sweeteners, basically anything with a whole bunch of fake ingredients, oatmeal..) but definitely don't want to overdo it completely after a good 30 days. Good luck to everyone!! We can do this OH and feel free to follow along on my fitness account to see my journey- would love to connect + follow y'all! @_kirafit9 ^^^ PS. for anyone needing recipe ideas/meals/grocery hauls etc- Check out my "whole 30" highlight on my account for Inspo! -Kira
