    @LilliMarlene  I’m so glad to hear you are not sick and that you are recovering from the detox symptoms.  They can really knock you on your butt if you aren’t expecting it.  Keep up the good work!

    Yes I got better, I’m not sick.. I am a first timer and I used to eat a lot of sugar and bread.. I think my health situation in general made this really tough on my body.. glad its over now, thanks!

    I had a headache today, too! But I get those fairly often, so it didn't dawn on me that it's because of no sugar or whatever. So far, so good...

    Hi Everyone,
    Hubby and I are starting our second whole30 tomorrow (March 2nd).  We did one in the beginning of 2014.  We loved the results and have changed a lot of our habits since then.  However, some joint issues still linger, so we are going to try another one to see if it helps.
    The first whole 30 we did was 'hard' for me because I was a  big sugar addict.  It took almost two weeks in the whole 30 until I started feeling better.  I had a dull headache, felt lousy and had tons of cravings.  By the end of the month, giving up that sugar made such a big difference in my energy level etc, that I've mostly stayed away from my bad habits since then (ie. no m&ms for lunch, no oreos as an afternoon 'pick me up' etc.)  I was apprehensive about the program the first time.  But this time I'm looking forward to it due to the results I got the first time.
    It really helps that both of us are doing it and we like to cook.  It helps having someone nearby to keep you honest and share the cooking tasks.  We worked on our weekly menu this morning.  And I started a batch of the silky ginger soup from the Well Fed 2 cookbook.
    Anyways, I just wanted to say Hi and am looking forward to catching up with other forum topics.
    Ally

    Wow such an interessting read! I am facinated with the discuccion about nighttime cocktail.. I dont drink, but I have developed a habit with painkillers in the evening to help me relax. i recognice the pattern here with my own habit...
    I need to quit, but the one time I tried not to take any I had the worst night with little sleep:( So plan is to take less, before stopping completely. I think this will be my biggest challenge.. 
    will keep on reading this thread, keep ut the good work! I start sunday!

    I am prepping for my very first Whole30!
    This phenomenon is not very known over here - anyone else from Scandinavia? I am very exited - and also a little scared! I need this very much for several reasons - and I really feel that it is going to work! I just found out that I suffer from SIBO so I need to finish some medication first - plan is to start up march 2nd. Reading up on everything!
