    w30 is curing my cancer

    Peanut was given to me as a nickname by a lovely couple I kmew growing up who owned a shop above my parents business. It sort of stuck. Little still being that i am 31 and not even 5'0" lol. I'm so glad my story inspired you as well as others. It gives me an amazing amount of pride. I know i will constantly be fighting my life against the diseased powers that be, but why fight fire with fire?? i like the fight fire with food approach... It cooks my meals perfect enough to eat! Lol

    w30 is curing my cancer

    Hi!! Yes for the most part i did away with eating sugar but sadly towards the end... I couldn't taste food so i went to eating anything i could taste and it was mostly sweet foods (yogurt, ice cream, applesauce, etc)... I did eat a TON of fruit but even some of that tasted awful like metal :/

    w30 is curing my cancer

    Laurie, as far as your boyfriend, i am sending lots of love and huggles mate. Any severe illness/disease affects us all, even loved ones. Best advice, be strong and accept that it's ok when you aren't or can't be. As far as for him, whatever he can stomach to eag, let him eat it! Obviously strived for healtheir choices, but at one point... I would've given my left arm to eat something i didn't throw up later or didn't taste like the bottom sode of a car. Even doing a whole30 was really hard but i made sure i always ate and had extra food (in case i never held it down). I would definitely meet with a nutrtionist who might specialize in weight gain and work out something safe for him to try... Possibly when he gets out? Feel free to message me, maybe we can hash out some ideas but since i'm not a docotr, not sure how my advice might pan out LOL.For me, i am well. I finished a very long long looonnggggg time on chemo july 3rd and have been recooperating ever since. I have put on about 35lbs because of all the drugs leaving my system but that won't last long, believe me. Lol i am back to my w30 community and plan to kick ace. Be sure to look for my new thread when i start one I've missed you all SO much! Cheers mates!

    Whole30 Instagram Accounts

    Those are great!!! I know it sounds silly to even suggest using a "hashtag" but then you get all the photos of your delicious meals out there to show and share with everyone!! Great thinking!!

    w30 is curing my cancer

    HI EVERYONE!!!!! I started my 3rd W30 on Sept. 1st so just checking in with everyone. Chemo is going ok. (I still have most of my hair still woot!!) Looking to be off it officially in November so I'm hitting the w30 hard hahaha. My birthday is coming up in October (the big 3-0, woohoo!) and I have my first checkup for these last 90days of chemo on the 3rd so I am hoping for some kickace results! I love how the Whole30 is my medicine!!!!!!! I've been jumping in and out of the forums this time around just seeing how everyone is doing so thought I should pop in and say HELLO!! Thank you everyone to all the views, replies and support! SO AMAZING!!!!!!! lots of loves, huggles and happy tum-tum's!! Cheers!!!!!! LP

    Confused about eating meal one after workout

    Not sure if you ever got an answer for an option to post WO--- I have bought and cooked chicken breast tenders before and kept them cold in a little icepack in my gym bag or purse. That way I could eat it before heading home and then make a meal. It was better then tuna since I got burnt out on it and kept me from getting post workout rage on someone from needing to eat LOL I would say try that... or if you don't mind fish.... that would work too. A little lunchbag to sneak in your purse or bag is all you need with a coldpak and you can find some suupppeeerr small ones that are perfect at walmart or target and such.. Hope that helps a little more! Happy clean eating and workouts! Cheers!

    Sea salt with dextrose

    Finding salt in my town is becoming a hassle... I've been using a salt in my house and today (of course AFTER making meal 2) i noticed it had "less then 2% dextrose" SUGAR NOOOOOO!!! While i know it's a honest error- i'm frustrated. I also find that same "less then 2%" term on a lot of uncured organic meats... So i know sugar is sugar: anyone know of sea salt i can order?? We have a nature's grocers where i bought this salt but not many other options. Grrr lol

    Black Coffee

    Welcome to the black coffee fan club DJ!! I am a big advocate on black coffee- never been a big fan of sweetners in it. I do love French press made coffee. SOOOO strong and dark, LOVE IT. I consider getting anything other then my black coffee a "treat" or "dessert" since it's so sweet and sugary... Glad to hear that 10 months after that you have maintained the love of caffeine in a more controllable way. That is excellent news!! I hope everything else is going smashing for you, mate! Cheers!! -LP

    w30 is curing my cancer

    haha I always tell people CHEAT FOR ME! lol... Chemo is really hard so when I get to eat super food (as I call it since it's all extremely nutritional and amazingly deliciously awesome for me)... but on bad days... i really miss eating yogurt since that's usually my go-to food for nutrients. Baby food ( I know that sounds weird) also helps as well... I buy the organic food [still read my labels] so that way I don't feel completely sick but I still get nutrients from food in some way. I say stay true to W30 for you.. but I like acting as a silent guide.
