You said that you had done some more reading and that you are determined to figure this out. When my doctor suggested this plan to me I bought most of the books and promptly read them. Then I had to re-read them, again and again. I did not feel I could just wing the program if I was serious and I am. This is my first week and it is a trial to put together a number of meals, stock the pantry, and freezer. The Whole 30 recipes I have used are great. There is so much valuable information out there from those who have gone before us and it is helping me greatly. I think excitement breeds excitement and I am excited for you. All you gotta do is "one day at a time." Best of luck to you.
