    Day 3- Nausea and Upset Stomach

    Yes, I agree that it might take some time for your body to adjust. I'm not a medical professional, so I hesitate to comment on specific symptoms. Are you eating significantly more healthy fats than you were prior to Whole30? I've had a few clients that have had some digestive issues early on in their round because they were incorporating much more fat into their diet and it took a bit for their digestive system to catch up. There was a great article on the Whole30 website a couple of years ago detailing what is "normal" to experience during the Whole30. Hope this helps! https://whole30.com/2016/06/is-this-normal/ Kate

    Starting July 16!! Successes and woes!

    Hi Beckha, Your frustration is completely normal! And it's completely normal to take a couple of attempts to get through your second round (Melissa has posted about the second time being more difficult, here: https://whole30.com/2015/02/second-whole30/) I understand why you would want your husband to join you for moral support, and I also understand why it may be difficult to have him to eat the food you prepare but not abide by the full set of rules. Here's the thing - you've successfully completed the program before, on your own. You can do it again! Perhaps you may need to have an honest conversation with him and let him know that it's ok with you if he doesn't join you on this round, but also explain how much time and effort you've put into preparing the food that you're eating and the leftovers, and asking if he could find something else to snack on before dinner if he's hungry. It would be a little extra work for you, but you could also prep some chopped veggies, hard-boiled eggs, etc. and let him know that those are available for snacking, but you would like to save the leftovers for your meals. I like your plan of preparing your body this week and starting over again. I often challenge my clients to eat at least one meal a day completely Whole30 for the week before they begin a round. This can help to prepare you mentally for beginning a round while also making the hangover period much easier. Good luck! Kate

    Binging/overeating

    Hi Susan, Congratulations on finishing the Whole30. Do you find that the overeating happens at every meal, or are there specific times when you tend to eat when you're not hungry? I can respond more fully with a bit more context. Melissa addressed Binging/Home Alone Meltdowns in a post on the Whole30 website and you may find some relevant helpful tips related to your binging/overeating here: https://whole30.com/2015/11/home-alone/ Thanks, Kate
