  1. Today is my Day 30! I woke up this morning feeling really good. I wake up before my alarm every day. My energy level is pretty much the same. I feel hungry before breakfast. I actually eat a breakfast now, and that’s a big change. I feel tired at about the same time each night. I get a deeper sleep. I no longer need to take OTC allergy meds. I had an oral allergy to bananas and apples that seem to have disappeared. My clothes fit better. I stepped in the scale today and note I lost 5 lbs but I can tell it’s different than “normal” - I can see my jawline. I have l
  2. It is Day 25 for me, I'm feeling really good. Digestive issues have finally settled down, and I don't need enzymes anymore. I'm nervous looking ahead to next week, not entirely sure how reintroduction will go. I'm not sure if I should go slow or do the 10 day reintroduction option? I wonder if I should keep a log to keep track of symptoms and foods? The family are on Day 10 today. They're getting bored of eating the same things over and over, but that's partly their own fault, since they're being picky about the vegetables they eat. I plan to introduce them to zoodles tonight.

  3. It is Day 20 for me, and my family who joined me after Father’s Day are on Day 5. Last night we had Whole30 bowls from Chipotle. It was nice to not have to cook for one night! I am still battling horrible digestive problems- even after trying enzymes. I am now looking at a possible intolerance to eggs, so I am avoiding them today and tomorrow to see if it helps. I am noticing the family are missing their snacks and morning cereals. But I am also noticing my T1D daughter is doing better with her blood glucose numbers and her dry skin patches are not getting worse, and might
  4. Day 14, I woke up with pain in my hip and center of my torso. Started to wonder about all this fat and protein I’m eating after being vegetarian for so long. I went and bought digestive enzymes to help at meals. Hopefully they work. In other news, my pants can come off without being unbuttoned.
  5. It’s Day 13 and I am not even tempted by sugar and sweets. I helped the kids make Rice Krispie treats and I didn’t even lick my fingers. Since they are joining me in cutting everything out the day after Father’s Day, I am cringing a little for the pain they’re going to endure in a few days’ time. Yesterday I bought a gluten free beer to wait in the fridge for my day 31.
  6. It’s Day 7 and I feel really good. Full of energy and I am noticing changes. Tastes, smells, and what’s weird is the lack of a stuffy nose even in pollen season. It’s been 2 days since I stopped taking OTC allergy meds. I didn’t feel like I needed it, and I notice grass smells and food smells... it’s strangely fun.
  7. My Day 1 began the day after I finished reading It Starts With Food (after I finished reading Project 333). I have been intermittent fasting for at least a year with a vegetarian diet, and was still gaining weight, having digestive issues and I am just barely keeping my doctor happy with a borderline high blood pressure. I typically weigh myself every morning, so during this lockdown since mid-March, I hit that horrible 10 lb gained mark and decided that I'd had enough. Time for a change. Donning my face mask and carrying hand sanitizer with me, I braved the grocery stores and bought wha
