  1. Thanks

    Great to hear @BelfastBeginner! Those books are such great tools I definitely recommend making a meal plan for all of your meals in the first week; breakfast, lunch and dinner. It makes shopping SO much easier and removes the "unknown" for the first week
    Happy New Year to you too! Good luck!

    @siggaingadottir thank you so so much for all your info! This is so helpful. I plan to start on 7th so think the best plan is to start writing lots of ideas for meals out. I got the Whole 30 e book and whole 30 day by day so I think they will be great tools. Happy new year and all the best with your Whole30 journey x

    Welcome back @RandiW! 
    I've done 6 rounds of Whole30 and I completely understand how you feel. It's very difficult to get back into the mindset of taking on another Whole30. My goal for the first one was to just get through it; just follow the rules each and every day, but I did not pay much attention to the recommendations (e.g. I made smoothie bowls every now and then). The next ones I changed my goals/built on what I had already done... so for my second one I made sure to follow the rules AND the recommendations, the third I eliminated ALL snacking (unless hard core emergencies of course). The fourth one I decided to document all of my meals, etc. etc. By doing this it's helped me keep things interesting and gives me something specific to focus on

    Welcome, Dana! My main tip is "Keep it simple"! You don't need to do anything fancy to have an amazing Whole30 experience. 
    You got this!

    Great to hear @_kiragreer! I highly recommend following the meal template to get your meal sizes big enough to satisfy you so that you don't too hungry between meals  ...if your only source of protein in the meal is eggs, then eat as many as you can hold (typically 3-4)  Check out the link here: https://whole30.com/downloads/whole30-meal-planning.pdf
    Despite knowing what might cause you issues, I always recommend that people do the Fast Track reintro at least once (especially if it's their 1st full reintro). This gives you concrete evidence to work with and also gives you some space between your Whole30 and Food Freedom, minimizing the risk of a binge post Whole30  Here's a sample schedule for the reintro: https://whole30.com/step-two-finished/
    Good luck, you got this!
