    Pre workout near lunch time

    Official word from headquarters is that they are going to be updating the meal template with these guidelines. Additionally it's been stated that these guidelines are tailored to the type of exercise as well. Therefore, if the "extra meal"/3-4 whole30 meals were working for you before with your workout regimen, it is pretty likely you can stick to that. In this instance, I would say it's likely an experimental process for each person and the type of workouts they are doing. This article is focusing on getting the most out of your workouts and optimizing recovery, so if specific individuals are feeling like they need to "up their game" in that aspect, they could consider tailoring their workouts with this article. I'd look into the author of the article, he has an abundance of information that will help understand the changes.

  3. Have you looked into the RD that wrote the article? By visiting his website, you may find some great information to support his theory
  4. Hello! I think it's important to discuss this topic! I would like to comment on this particular article-- it doesn't say these are the new guidelines as of yet -- this is an article from a RD discussing maximizing performance and recovery on Whole30. So as always, I feel it should be tailored to the needs of each person and the type of exercise they are doing - but I'm not sure it's an official change which means maybe experimenting with it might be the best to figure out what your body needs. Just a thought

    Question for Type 2 Diabetics

    I am so happy for you! I think you'll be very pleased with the effects of Whole30 on your diabetes! As a reminder, we always recommend diabetics working closely with their physician as eating differently will alter your blood sugar and you may not need the same dosing of your medication as you do now. Wishing you the best!

    Saturday Night is for Fighting (food cravings)!

    Since we associated food with special occasions or experiences, we do feel "deprived" in the beginning removing the foods we have ALWAYS had in those situations. Think birthday cake at a birthday party and an alcoholic beverage at a weekend party. Whole30 helps so many aspects of our life, but one of the most important is our relationship with food. After becoming mindful and intentional with our eating behaviors, we will be able to redefine these experiences with different pleasures -- such as enjoying the company we are with and feeling empowered to make the decision to skip the cake and alcohol because we CHOSE to. Navigating food freedom is a journey and you will continue to learn more about yourself the more you work on it. Give yourself grace and I wish you the best!

    I'll reach out to the W30 coaches and see what kinds of examples I can get for you

    Pre workout near lunch time

    Depending on the type of exercise many may need the carbohydrates, so you will have to assess what type of exercise you are doing and whether or not you think the carbs pre-workout are necessary for you. However the article states this: "Eating some carbohydrates pre-workout will help you finish the workout strong." It's important to note that science is always evolving and changing. You could research the author of the article (at the bottom) and see how you relate to the principles he teaches. Truly and honestly, there isn't a one-size-fits-all for diet nor exercise.. it's important to tailor it to your own specific needs.
  10. Sorry to also miss this one. Something to consider is if the bloat remains and your bowels don't normalize, you could have some underlying GI issues. This is when you could consider a Functional Medicine Practitioner to help identify the root cause so you know how to treat it. There's resources in the back of the Whole30 book to get you started should you consider this route. If low FODMAP foods provide you relief, I would encourage you to get some testing of your gut to see what could be going on. In my personal experience, continued bloat (even after whole30) and not losing weight were both related to underlying GI issues I had to treat first before I found my true healthy balance. I hope this information isn't discouraging, but gives you some more ideas of how to tackle your ongoing GI distress.

    Pandora’s Whole 30 log

    It's important to note that despite snacking not being in the spirit of the program, you were mindful about your food choices and habit around food. Moving forward it would be good to remain true to yourself and really dig in deep when you are "craving" a snack versus truly hungry and needing a snack. Identifying certain behaviors/thoughts/environmental factors around the snacking behavior could really help you change your habits long term. Keep up the good work -- no whole30 is perfect

    This was my doctor's prescription

    So glad you are here, Marcy! Not only is the science fascinating.... it REALLY works!! Wishing you all the best on your journey and when the going gets tough, don't be too hard on yourself. If you need accountability, find out what that would look like for you and I hope you see it through for your health -- it will change your life

    First timer - started this morning!

    Hello! Welcome and I hope you have an impactful journey! It is slightly inevitable to get "bored" with the process later. It's even weaved into the emotional calendar, have you seen that already? Here's a resource from Whole30 website re: Whole30 boredom. https://whole30.com/2019/02/whole30-bored/ You could keep this aside for when you need to mix things up a bit to stay on track. All the best!

    Poo problems and candida

    You have great questions. I have spent a lot of time in functional medicine resources as I have had many GI issues myself. When you mention to me that fermented foods give you gas and reflux, it immediately makes me think of SIBO (small intestinal bacterial overgrowth). I am not a functional medicine doctor, but in my experience this is what I have learned. I do highly recommend you seeing a functional medicine practitioner to help you navigate both the SIBO and candida -- again, I took this route and had much relief. I did 5 rounds of Whole30 in 2 years without relief of this issue. Not sure if you saw the SteadyMD information through Whole30, but depending on the state you live in, you could see one of their practitioners virtually. https://drwillcole.com/gut-health/sibo/ https://www.steadymd.com/whole-30/

    Persistent Bloat and Bumpy Bowels

    Very good advice above. Something to consider is if the bloat remains and your bowels don't normalize, you could have some underlying GI issues. This is when you could consider a Functional Medicine Practitioner to help identify the root cause so you know how to treat it. There's resources in the back of the Whole30 book to get you started should you consider this route.
