    Miriam71 got a reaction from Samantha31289 in I’ll never go back   
    @Samantha31289  I just started another whole 30 again on Monday. And I’m gonna go through Christmas with that. 
    It’s amazing how wonderful I feel on this program.

    I’m halfway through my first whole 30. I am pretty amazed. I have not had a colitis attack since I started, my  bones are not so achy , and I’m cleaning my house all the time. I haven’t had a nap in a week. 
     I can’t see the point in putting foods back in. I will do some just to check it out. But I’m thinking this way of eating is very good for me. And even though I live with two people who aren’t even close to this it’s OK.

    Welcome Jen!  I have done two official whole 30's, and I eat 95% plus Whole 30 all the time now, 18 months total.  When I started, I was pre-diabetic, and my doctor (at Kaiser, so a fairly busy doc) e-mailed me personally to emphasize that I needed to do something about it.  My first Whole 30 brought my blood sugar into completely normal range, and it has remained normal since.  I too have had to deal with anxiety and depression issues all my life.  I've found various solutions to help with that, but I will add that the Whole 30 brought about modest improvements in mood, and energy levels as well.   I've had many other health benefits from Whole 30, and would never even consider going back to how I used to eat.
    I'm happy to share anything that I've learned and experienced, and I can be a cheerleader for you, as I love to hear about others' successes.  The Whole 30 tagline "it will change your life" may sound contrived, but I believe in it.  It truly did change mine.

    Miriam71 got a reaction from Southerncinn in Day 3 down and three meals down - not really hungry for 3rd meal   
    During my whole 30, I ate the third meal.
    Just because I thought I probably should get into the habit of eating at the right time. I ended up losing 7 pounds so that’s good.

    I have Allen Carrs  book. He underwent hypnosis to quit smoking and what the book is is basically a session. Unfortunately it didn’t work for me but I might try it again.

    I don’t use garlic salt or onion salt. I use garlic powder and onion powder and nothing is added to that. That way I can just use my own sea salt and grind at the same time I am using those seasonings.
     I believe in salt but I can’t stand oversalted food.

    I know we have to give up bread and I'm okay with that. You know why? We can have potatoes. Yay.

    I started on September 7 and when I weighed myself I had lost 4 pounds before I started. I was not all that pleased about the weight loss because what if that is all the weight I lose?

    i’m doing pretty well, but boy is it hard to find whole 30 compliant foods in the grocery store. I just paid $9.99 for half a pound of bacon. Yikes

    I started two days ago. So I hope it’s OK to join this group. I’m really excited about this way of eating.
