  1. Also veggies in my rotation have been kale witch I find yucky! if it’s not baby kale. Spinach, bell peppers, carrots, sugar snap peas, Yukon Gold potatoes, sweet potatoes, cauliflower little bit, zucchini’s a lil bit, grape tomatoes, Roma tomatoes, jalapeños, onions, spaghetti squash. That’s all I can think of right now
  2. Thanks sugar cube! Lets see if I can answer your questions. I’m not working out. I want to just very fatigued. It’s better but not 100% the bacon. On the back the “chart” that list calories, fat, protein ect.... the black and white long rectangle said sugar 0 but below that in the ingredients listed sugar? I understand about the scale. And thank you for the reassurance. Yes I take magnesium I’ve been out for last few days . But yes normally. I have goggled sleep hygiene and have practiced it and have also tried meditation. Both are tough I believe my sleep problems are related to thyroid issues but I will continue to work on it. I’ll look into natural calm! Where do you buy it? I’ll start on ama in or Target. So eating. I am getting the whole30 blue apron meal kits this month so it’s for two people so I make one for dinner and it also is my lunch next day since it’s for two. I have eggs for breakfast different ways except hard boiled. Everyday is a little different some times it’s scrambled with spinach and onion or like today I sautéed onions and a little bit of avocado oil. With tomato and jalapeños and made a little bit of a sauce and topped it over fried eggs. Sometimes I do half an Avocado with everything bagel seasoning from Trader Joe’s and a sweet potato “toast” I have made potato crisp in the oven a recipe from no crumbs left on Instagram and I have had that with breakfast So potatoes and eggs salsa because I know how to make amazing salsa and every ingredient is compliant. Coffee! I have done Jim’s organic coffee and cold brew coffee. I make the wooden skillets homemade creamer with full fat coconut milk & almond milk unsweetened and vanilla bean pods and cinnamon . Or coconut cream with cinnamon blended with coffee in the Neutra bullet I even tried the butter coffee with ghee I also take salad I have 4 cup container that I fill with spinach and baby kale mostly. or some type of other green but mostly spinach tomatoes cucumbers red bell peppers and I try to put salmon or chicken on the salad and I am using primal kitchen ranch as my compliant dressing. I have been trying for 30 recipes from Instagram. spaghetti squash meatballs and homemade marinara. I have been eating lots of Potato’s ... thinking out loud. I have been eating almond butter a few times a week with apples or bananas . The frist week I had fruit at every meal this past week I tried to tone it down but the fruit I have is apples lots of apples . Bannas , strawberry’s and grapes . I’m drinking about 84- 100 0z of water a day. Handfull of almonds now and then. All my fats have been ghee , olive oil and avocado oil. (Just got coconut oil) i have also had compliant turkey from Applegate roiled up in lettuce leaves with primal mayo and the mayo is yucky . Thats been it on repet. Thanks for helping looking forward to the journey

Struggling with insomnia , fatigue, hair loss, weight gain, hair loss dry skin , calicium deficient and iron Deficient both big deals! since thyroid was removed and no gallbladder all the other yucky terrible thyroid issues. Like hormone inblances Ever since thyroid cancer and removal my heath went down hill 50/60lbs weight gain and battling hypo...and hair losss is terrible ! BUT I’m on day 15! Yay me and I have a second chance on life and I’m determined to live heathly and less plump! I have not cheated or swypo the first week I had bacon with sugar in the ingredients but not in the listing ! and the second week I took a big drink of coconut water a friend offered without looking at the ingredients. Other then those things I have been 100% compliant! Here goes my concern/question?! And yes I read the books and I’m all over whole30 social media. First- My NSVS have been no acid reflux, no feeling full for hours and hours on end after a meal. No belching and feeling big air pockets in my gut. Feeling like I wake up not so foggy. it used to take me more then half the day to “wake up” Now it’s by noon or sooner Sugar craving is diminishing. Now for the whoas me- I don’t have the tiger blood. I’m still fatigued, still not sleeping please someone help me fall asleep !!! Not much energy more then I had but not a enough to be substantial and I have not lost much of any weight ! (I got on the scale most of you did too! No judging and yes it is important just as much as the rest of the the Stuff is!) I’m only down 4lbs just looking for support and advise to put this into high gear! I want to achieve long term heath and goals along with motivational steppingstones along the way ! Is there something I’m doing wrong ? Or something I can improve ? Something to cut out and replace with a better option ? Needing whole30 support . Thanks in advance and why am I still craving cheese and bread! Lord help me ! I can be around chocolate cake, but don’t torture me with the dairy and grains!

First week in I had the headaches and just blah, now this week I’m still tired and all mentioned symptoms?! What the hey?! I struggle with low thyroid issues, and insomnia. None have improved. I follow the rules I have not cheated ! So is this normal ? When do I get the Amazinv sleep everyone talks about? Or the energy ?! And when does the weight comd off? Feeling discouraged
