    Starting Whole 30 for January

    I am so with you on the many attempts at this program and those are the same days as me too. If you have a store that does rotisserie chicken that is compliant that is a fast way to get the protein. I deboned it shred it and then separated out in portion sizes and put it in the freezer.

    It's Time To Slay The Sugar Dragon

    @littleg I haven’t done the avocado and tuna in a while. I will have to try it again. I found several recipes I am going to try. This round I am going to stay away from eggs I must get the inflammation down. Then next round I remove more things like pork, potatoes, eggplant and probably others as well. I have really done a number on myself.

    Great. I didn’t start today so I will start with you tomorrow. I did a big post on my prep on Its time to slay the sugar dragon. How’s the day 0 going with the prep?

    It's Time To Slay The Sugar Dragon

    @littleg its more a digestive problem although not as sever as peppers, onions & garlic. The egg whites are the highest and then the yokes. I haven’t been able to find a compliant vegan mayo since the one I know has rice syrup in it. I am looking to make my own or just go without. Great alternate recommendation littleg and @ArtFossil. I have had to go without the eggs before I had just realized I didn’t plan for any breakfasts since I had been doing oats and tuna sandwiches, which are out now. I will do some tuna boats unless I can’t figure out the mayo part. I am not too fond of tuna without the mayo. I’ll be trying all those recommendations. I woke up too late so didn’t start today I did get the soup made and some steamed broccoli. I also prepped the fried cauliflower rice

    I am going to make this for some of my breakfasts. https://herbrandedlife.com/turkey-sweet-potato-paleo-breakfast-hash/ I will need to figure out something else since I can’t do eggs. Maybe some turkey burgers with salad and roasted potatoes.
  9. So I am starting tomorrow and today is my day 0. I have been avoiding this for a very long time. I have started and stopped many time. Now I just really need to buckle down and get myself healthy. I am modifying my whole 30 to exclude my allergies items: almonds, cashews, pecans, poppy & sesame seeds, eggs, onions, garlic, seaweed, bananas, pineapple, tomatoes, watermelon, figs & kiwi. So that means no protein bars at all. My new emergency food is baby food that is compliant since I can keep it in my trunk and I don’t have to keep it cool. My doctor is not happy with me because I have not been following his instructions. He is very concerned because of all the inflammation I have from the test results among other things. I am working on getting the 3 meals a day but I am concerned at night because I sometimes can’t sleep because of my low blood sugar. That is the first hurdle to get through a night and not have to eat before I go to bed which has become a habit. Let’s get real her it is more of a binge than a meal. I have taken my measurements, weight and pictures. I purged my cupboards today and went shopping. This week I am doing chicken, pork, turkey, steamed broccoli, cauliflower fried rice, a veggies soup of zucchini, green beans, celery and parsley, sweet potatoes, spaghetti squash, salads and cole slaw. All the meat is already made so I just need to do the veggies. Reason whyWhole 30: Heal my gut and digestion (leaky gut) Heal insulin resistance Reduce inflammation Have better energy Sleep better Get off Blood Pressure Medicine Improve My Allergies Symptoms and Get Off All Allergy Medicine My Goals are to: Take one meal and day at a time to stay compliant. Do some kind of movement: PT &/or walking Clean the kitchen after each meal/food prep Create your if/then: If I am stuck late at work/in traffic/at a game then I’ll have protein/veggie & fat (baby good or canned meats) or grab a protein burger or get a salad at a salad bar If I am at happy hour and offered a drink then I’ll say no thanks, I am sober and have a soda water If there is nothing compliant at a party, then I’ll get the extra emergency food that I brought in my car. I can also eat before I go. Or end up leaving early if no food and too hungry. If I am tempted to go out for breakfast to eat and read a magazine then review my reasons why then make sure I have enough protein and fat in my meal. Read helpful excerpts from the book. This isn’t hard, cravings leave in 3-5 mins. And remember I truly am the one in charge, not my cravings, would I let my an infant eat cookies and drink Diet Coke? If I am waking by non-compliant food at work, then I think of my reasons why and keep walking by. Eat down in the closed restaurant so I am not by the food. Also don’t walk in areas that has the bad food because you really don’t need to be up there anyway. If while working the kid’s movie event I get pizza, chocolate, etc on my hands then wipe it off with a napkin. I need to get into the habit of this in my life instead of licking my fingers. This has definitely been the cause for me to have to restart. Also make sure I have compliant snacks so if I am hungry, I have something to eat. If I need to grab a bite to eat because I didn’t bring enough food, then find a compliant place to go. Ie grocery store salad bar with can of tune or salad at another non-fast food restaurant, etc. side note take extra food for the day (compliant canned tuna or chicken, some extra veggies sticks, fruit, nuts, etc.) If invited out to lunch, then scope out the menu beforehand for compliant foods. Let the person know what I am doing as well. If invited for dinner, then find out what’s on the menu and offer to bring something compliant. Make them aware of my allergies. If not I am going to be keeping my food log and day by day here instead of going to the food log section because it is moderators are her. Anyone want to join me I would love to hear from you no matter what day you are on.

    Planning to start September 1. Are you?

    Well here I am up at midnight not able to fall back to sleep. I have been a little foggie. @nrmoody415 I am there with you on the food for me today and even my emergency food didn’t inspire me. If you can only do small meals then do more that 3 a day. When I start sometime I do 4-5 mini ones until I can ease my way up to bigger meals and spread them out more. Sometimes my sugar craving show up as disinterest in my meals and then I can’t eat them. I have never been one to be able to eat something that I don’t like. Everyone looks like they are doing great. Keep up the great work Today I had compliant Apple chicken sausage with green beans, asparagus and roasted veggies Lunxh was Chinese broccoli with compliant teriyaki sauce, bok Choy and shrimp Snack was some chicken and spinacj Dinner was teriyaki beef over cole slaw.

    @Shelly0831 hang in there. My first was was awful. Maybe post here what your meals are and the moderators can give suggestions. Nap if you need too. Bone broth did wonders for me and a bad stomach. Make sure your getting enough fat.
