    Loosing food control with alcohol

    Those sounds like such smart rules! Thank you for taking the time to respond! I think I’m just going to take a little time to focus on being whole30 compliment again and then on my birthday which is coming up try again. After making a list of rules for myself that is. Maybe it is just a special holiday thing for me now, I’d like it more often then that, but feeling better means more to me!
  2. So I’m in reintroduction on day 36 before last night all I had reintroduced was dairy and last night I reintroduced alcohol and I lost food control. Today I feel terrible! And of course because I at a lot of things I can’t tell what did it. I’m going back to strict whole30 for a couple weeks probably. I feel bad and I don’t... currently reading foodfreedom so I knew a slip up might happen and it did and I don’t feel bad because I know what to do to get myself on track but there’s still a part of me that’s disappointed I let it happen. Has anyone had a similar experience that later worked alcohol back into there life with success of keeping food control and if so what steps did you take? I know I should have just one drink and maybe it wouldn’t have happened so next time I fully plan on trying one glass of wine in a resteraunt setting so that I’m not tempted with a full bottle of wine still sitting in the fridge... does that sound like an ok plan? I do know that maybe alcohol will always be a good trigger and I’m ready to accept that but I’d like to go into a smart reintroduction with alcohol before I write it off as off limits for me because I do enjoy wine or I did before whole30.

    Day 29 and just a little amazed at myself...

    I think you did great!!! Maybe your next whole30 you won’t weigh in or maybe you will either way I’m happy your happy!! I’m not a big forum user because of some of the same responses you have gotten. I came from WW where yes the rules aren’t the same but if you “slipped” up the community didn’t remind you, you did it wrong they supported you only is getting back up and trying again. Now again I know this is a different program and there are rules but following the food side of things 100% to me is a whole30 so I’m happy for you! Congrats! Also a Side note. My first whole30 I smoked... yes I know same situation here I didn’t follow one rule and followed all others but my second I didn’t. And I wouldn’t have wanted anyone to downgrade my progress, which is why I didn’t post about it on here because it would have made me feel bad and maybe I would never have tried again.

    Sugar in my coffee

    Have you tried any of the Nut Pod creamers? There really really good and take the edge off of black coffee. I believe most if not all flavors are whole30 approved to so that might be something you could do instead of sugar if you liked it? I looove the Nut Pod Pumpkin Spice.
  5. Ingredients: Water, Mustard (Water, Vinegar, Mustard Seed, Salt, Turmeric, Paprike, Clove, and Red Pepper), Apple Cider Vinegar, Pineapple Juice Concentrate, Tomato Paste, Salt, Tapioca Starch, Garlic Powder, Cracked Brown Mustard Seeds, Onion Powder, Black Pepper, Tamarind Concentrate, Paprika Cayenne Powder, Allspice, Clove I wasn’t 100% sure on everything being compliant. This is the new primal mustard bbq

    Shaming was not the right word to use more discouraging to continue the whole30 if what I should have said. And sorry I am new to this so I didn’t mean to clutter! Thank you for responding! I just want everyone to be encouraged to try changing there life with this program no matter what there dealing with example smoking.

    Tiger Blood 2.0

    I’m definitely nervous to weight myself and might not do it for a while after my 30 days! Mainly because I feel like I’ve lost a lot and if I haven’t I’m afraid that will ruin all the amazing other benefits! I’m sleeping better, more focused, lots more energy, waking up is easier for sure, keeping up with my insane household aka kids a lot a lot better. Happy to be here!

    Hi! Newbie (kinda) here!

    Good for you working through tougher times! This program does rock! Just started here on the forum which is a lovely support and resource! Wish I would have got on here from day one but happily on day 19!

    Although the rules are against smoking I don’t think that if someone wanted to do a whole30 who wasn’t ready to quit smoking yet should be told they can’t. Better your life with whole30 in my opinion prepare someone who is a smoker to stop smoking. So I don’t think it’s fair to say don’t do a whole30 if your not willing to quit smoking. That’s all the more reason to do one. When areas of your life start to improve other areas of your life reap those benefits as well... example job performance, more aware of financials and betting your life in that way... or getting ready to stop smoking because you feel so healthy and want more of that. My first whole30 I wasn’t ready to stop smoking and I didn’t and I still had more energy, slept better then I ever have, skin cleared up, lost weight, started doing better at work, exercise got easier and so on. I’m glad even though I was smoking I didn’t because I sets you up for success to do hard things like quit smoking or begin that process at least. Just my thought. Not saying whole30s recommendation to stop is wrong because it’s not but I don’t think people who aren’t ready should be shamed or told it’s not an option if you don’t.

    Starting WHOLE30 Sept 10

    I started sep 10 to!! How is it going for you so far?! First week and a little around day 15 were hard for me but seems easy breezy now... hopefully that lasts! Any significant changes your happy about so far? I’m 28 about to be 29 and needed to get a hold of my eating before I ate my way to 200 lbs which I was only 170 when I started but was spiraling out of control since I gained 23 lbs in 6 months

    Whole30 Approved Brands

    Ok, that's what I figured. It's just kind of confusing in Thrive Market because i know they made that so it's easy for people on the program to purchase approved foods with "no worries" but i still worry and the fact that there not consistent with it proves to just rely on reading ingredients only. I get confused I guess with the approved additives. I downloaded the cheat sheet which i'll just try to really reference often so i get use to the verbiage. Any recommendations from the whole30 approved brands? I just got The New Primals wing sauce which is totally amazing. I was trying to verify the ingredients are OK in there Mustard BBQ sauce but some i was a little unsure of like Clove?

    Whole30 Approved Brands

    I know i might be over thinking this but if a brand is whole30 approved and had to whole30 stamp on it does that mean all there products with that stamp are whole30 complaint? Sorry Thrive market really threw me off by having the whole30 "badge" on some foods but not all. If you search there site for whole30 if brings up about three pages but if you click the badge then it brings up like 1 1/2 pages. For example all of the Primal Kitchen brands are on the whole30 search but not when you just click the bagde then half of them are missing. I'm on day 15 and just could be so sad if i ate something off plan by accident so once again without off the babbling... If a brand (primal kitchen, the new primal ect.) are whole30 approved brands does that mean all there products (at least the ones with whole30 stamped on the bottle) are whole30 complaint? I know this may be a simple question and i'm over thinking it but i can't risk loosing how far i have come. Thank you!
  13. So I have been on the whole30 for 15 days now. Loving it mostly! Course have my normal struggles of cravings but definitely getting better. After I got past day 4 I started feeling pretty awesome! Even started running again! So day 14 I just wasn’t feeling it and to prevent myself from cheating I decided to just ease up on monitoring every meals health for a day but stay complient so I ended up eating very few veggies and a lot of red meat (not the healthiest ones either) also I didn’t drink my normal like gallon of water for the day. Also something to note since I got on the plan I haven’t felt sore after a 3 mile like at all! Which is totally not normal for me! I figured I was packing my meals with such a high volume of veggies, healthy meats, and good starches (potatoes) that it must have been healing my muscles faster then I could feel the pain or something like that. ANYWAY day 15 I wake up and feel TERRIBLE! My whole body hurts, mainly my back and I just could crawl under the covers and slee all day. Still managed to run three miles which made me feel better for a little... why is this happening? I ate good all day today. Got lots of veggies and proteins and water. Is my body reacting from not being sore due to veggies and then all of a sudden not eating the same amount for a day? I’m praying I wake up tomorrow feeling better! I love the program and want to finish so bad but today just uhg I really didn’t feel good, basically like say 2-3 again. I reviewed everything I ate day 14 and everything was compliant... ate more mayo (compliant) then I have in forever and had ribs which I have decided I don’t really like anymore. Any advice would be great!
