  1. Well, I recently finished my Whole30. It was really hard, but I didn't slip up once. There were no results. There was no elimination of cravings, no improved energy or sleep and no weight loss. Back to a balanced diet and counting calories. Thanks. Jim
  2. @SugarcubeOD Sometimes they are cooked and sometimes they are not. I prefer uncooked because cooked vegetables give me a stomach ache. Thanks. Jim
  3. @SugarcubeOD I have been having potatoes and carrots. Thanks. Jim
  4. @SugarcubeOD I don't eat cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli or Brussels sprouts. That would really make me throw up. I'm eating more meat and vegetables than usual. Thanks. Jim
  5. @heb2014 the only sources of fat (that I know of) are from the meat, a few nuts, avocado and olive oil. I don't know what starchy vegetables means. Thanks. Jim
  6. @SugarcubeOD I can't remember exactly what I ate for each meal and the portion size, but I know it has been meat (chicken, pork, steak and fish) vegetables, fruit, some eggs and nuts. It's really hard to keep on this diet. I'm so sick of it. Thanks. Jim
  7. Does anyone else feel nauseous after eating just meat, veggies and fruit for days on end? Yep, I ate eggs and nuts too. Thanks. Jim
  8. @CannaBoy I'm on day 12 and haven't slipped up yet. It's been really, really hard though.
  9. @heb2014 Hi heb2014, I started my Whole30 on January 3. I went to this forum before I started my Whole30 in preparation as part of doing my initial research because I was curious about the program and thought the forum could help with some questions I had. Thanks. Jim
  10. @slc_melissa That's correct, which is why I went to this forum to ask how one can tell if a seed is a grain. Thanks. Jim
  11. @laura_juggles It's not the sees themselves, but the oil that is made from the seeds.
  12. @JessFind I'm trying bacon and fried eggs for breakfast. I cook them the night before and then heat them up in the microwave in the morning for a grab and go, which is what I did today. Happy Friday! Jim
  13. @JessFind I'm not looking for a magic pill. I never said I was. Just want a simple program I can stick to to see the benefits below. The short rules seem simple, but not all the "recommendations".
  14. @heb2014 I didn't say that the Whole30 web site said "You will never crave something unhealthy again in your life".  I'm not sure where you got that. It does say eliminate cravings and lose weight, which are the main reasons I want to try it.
  15. @slc_melissa Yes, I think there is a grain that is not on that list in the rules because it says it "is not limited to" those grains listed. @slc_melissa Yep, I know, and it's great! That's what drew me to Whole30 in the first place - the simplicity of it and that I love bacon. So I plan to eat Whole30 compliant bacon every day while on Whole30 (along with eggs). Thanks. Jim
