    Settyfitness got a reaction from ultrarunnergirl in When to Restart the Whole30?   
    I'm sure one of our moderators will chime in...but I would restart for sure! You committed to the process of a 30-day reset. You didn't mean to have something off plan, so you know you got this! It can only help! This happened to me when I ate some sundried tomatoes that i realized after had sulfites. I restarted. I want the full benefits of every bit of research I do. I also have a disease that i manage and it was important to me to the program as intended to reap the rewards forever. Hope this helps

    For workouts it just depends on how many times per week you are working out how many times do u workout per week?

    Only YOU know how YOU feel ....There aren’t many things in life where everyone has the same reaction. Not everything works for everyone. But a lot of those people it “doesn’t work” for haven’t tried it either. Go with what you know. You put in the work and you are reaping the rewards. We really change up everything in our house based on a recipe we love or want to try. Pork tenderloin is a grilling staple in our house but we cook with many different compliant rubs or sauces. So even if we are eating the same protein it’s never the same. Hope this helps!

    Settyfitness got a reaction from Angelia in Possible pre-workout meal option?   
    I teach a pretty high level class and I usually have an extra bar just to get something with a proper macro balance in me. Then after class I like to cook eggs with brussel sprouts and a sweet potato with half an avocado. Hard boiled egg has been a go to at times pre or post depending on my time frame. I take a little ghee in the morning coffee too 
    hope this helps a little

    Welcome Suzy72!
    I'm telling you...the hardest part is committing. Once you do, the rest will come. Take tomorrow to shop and meal prep and join us on Monday. You will be SOOOOOO glad you did. I'm 6 days in and feeling good. My skin is starting to look better...I actually slept through the night last night. And it will just keep getting better.
    But stay on this thread and share ur thoughts with us. We're here to answer any questions or offer support.
    You CAN DO IT!!!

    Reintroduction will be liberating and you will feel so much better knowing what makes you feel better/worse. It’s a great feeling when you can move forward to your food freedom with so much knowledge

    Hi Jredl!
    I can relate - I'm the only one in my household of 4 as well, with a sorta-kinda supportive spouse who doesn't quite get how rigorous the whole thing is. I eat sandwiches for lunch too, but last week I brought left-over dinner instead, and I really enjoyed having a warm lunch (although it takes a little bit longer, which is a challenge with my job). I can imagine bringing chicken salad in lettuce or endive boats - that could work, and I have big plans to make some big pots of soup. So we'll see! 
    I went to your user profile and "followed" you, because I could use a buddy too - I'm worried that I don't have enough support, and this sugar dragon is a big, powerful, lifelong god of mine. Polishing my sword now and preparing to fight for my life! Good luck to you as well!

    Good luck to you. you have a ton of people here to support you and a ton of resources. I used to have sandwiches for lunch and my easiest solution was finding compliant deli meat (applegate turkey is what I use now) and putting it in a lettuce wrap with cucumbers, tomatoes, and mustard. Sometimes I even add a slice of Whole30 compliant bacon (which applegate also makes). In the last 2 years I mostly use the deli meat on top of a salad with a hard boiled egg and avocado to make like a cobb or chef salad. I hope this helps a little bit.

    Not low key tonight.  We are having crab hand rolls from the first nomnom paleo cookbook.  Not low key because I have a pound of picked crab meat.  I had to time the ripening of the avocado with the development of the sprouts, which took take about 4-5 days to be done.  So a highly planned and expensive, but delicious looking meal.
    My low key go to meals are things like a salad, roasted veggies, and a meat.  The cracklin chicken on the nomnom paleo website is absolutely delicious for having just chicken, oil, and salt (and a cast iron skillet).

    We are having a tex-mex cauliflower rice casserole. However, my go-to for a low key dinner is a stir fry or roasted vegetables with baked fish or chicken.

    Just a quick check in to see how everyone is doing! Has anyone found any great new recipes, tricks, kitchen hacks? I think of the best NSVs of any whole 30 is learning new things in the kitchen, and finding new recipes that you love. I've recently rediscovered my love for fresh oregano in everything.

    @Hopingandtrying I'm so glad to hear that things are going pretty well so far! The only comment I have here is that you may be missing some fat in your breakfast. You have delicious sounding dressings and sauces for lunch and dinner, so just make sure to do the same with breakfast. It can be as simple as drizzling olive oil over your veggies, or adding a scoop of homemade mayo. It's the fat that really helps us feel satisfied. In terms of weight, please continue to stay off the scale, and remember that this is an entire 30 days, so your body is going to go through many different changes. I know it's difficult, but try not to compare yourself to other people, each body is different.

    Hi All, Happy Day 6! It looks like everyone is going great, keep it up. Just walked in the door after 36 hours of a mini-vacation, and I am proud to say that I made it through successfully. Restaurants were happy to swap out the cheese for avocados in my eggs, and I was able to get a delicious steak last night for dinner. I also discovered the most refreshing non-alcoholic drink, because let's be honest, sometimes plain water gets boring.
    Rusa: glass with ice, lots of fresh squeezed lime, plain seltzer, and a salted rim. Try it!

    Good morning and Happy Day 6!  I am doing a reset, maybe for a couple of weeks or maybe for the whole month.  I haven't decided yet.  That is the beauty of Food Freedom.  It is amazing how quickly I feel great and my skin starts to literally glow when I do a reset.  I have completed 3 full Whole 30s over the last 2 years and many mini resets.  Each time I learn something new and really figure out what non-compliant foods/drinks are "worth it."  At the moment my clear skin and good energy is "worth it".  It definitely helps to follow along with a group on this forum for company.
    Great job so far, Ronald!!  It sounds like your body is still adjusting to the positive change in your diet.  You will probably feel better this week.
     
    The only time I have experienced "ketosis" breathe is when I don't eat any fruit, squashes or starchy root vegetables.  Maybe you can try adding some of them into your diet and see how you feel.
