  1. @RachelR Right! I wonder how many former pop drinkers have a similar experience... Even the Whole30 book says that it is 34% worse for people who drink a lot of soda. My boyfriend never drinks any pop, and we've had very similar experiences thus far. Maybe one mild headache each in the past 10 days (and that might not have even been Whole30 related). Makes me wonder what percentage of people actually had that worse, withdrawal experience that you and I were both expecting.
  2. @Contessa I just copy-pasted your reintroduction plan onto my computer. LoL. Will definitely be pulling that up again for ideas in a few weeks. Thanks! And congrats!!!
  3. Those of you who are following this tale will be relieved to hear that we are still going strong! Today is Day 5. I won't bore you with a 5-day long list of all the meals (not that that information is boring! but for anyone who is interested, you can turn to page 196 in The Whole30 book because these total newbies are sticking to the seven-day plan that someone else put together for the first week, because anything else was too daunting!). Also, I have the Whole30 Journal and am documenting all meals, snacks and drinks in there. I'll definitely log the highlights in the weeks to come, though!

    Round 2

    Wow! That is no small feat! What a great NSV. Every workday, without fail, I hit the "2-4 Slump," in which I really really want a nap, but can't have one and am therefore half as productive as I could be. This gives me hope that this miracle might happen to me, too! LoL. Good job yesterday!
  5. Hello MadyVanilla! I am a Whole30 newbie on Day 3 of the program. I'm checking out the forums for the first time today. I was skimming through yours, and I want to tell you that you are an inspiration! Good job on making it to day 28 of 60! You are so ambitious to go for a Whole60; that's a Long. Time. In one of your early posts, you are beating yourself up about not doing the things you know you should do and reading and playing video games instead. That definitely resonates with me! Adulting is HARD! LoL One thing that I found helped me was setting little (and few) goals so as to not g
  6. Once upon a time, at LEAST two years ago, my mother-in-love told me about this interesting food thing that her sister had done. Where you cut out sugar, bread, dairy, and alcohol for a whole month just to reset your body. Then, by slowly reintroducing them to your diet, you could see how certain things you are putting into your body are affecting you. I was instantly intrigued. I've never gone on a diet or even thought about going on one, as I've never really struggled with weight (lucky genes, I think- my father was a beanpole at my age). BUT I've never been able to fully get rid of my a

    Round 2

    Meli, we have the same start date!!! (except for this is my FIRST time doing the Whole30, so total newbie here!) One of my biggest NSVs I'm hoping for is clearer skin, so I feel your pain there. So excited for you. Good luck! You can do it! (I'm gonna go start my own log now - this online community is very cool)
  8. Hooray! Thank you, Shannon! :-) We recently got a carbonating machine (before we even decided to do Whole30), just to spend less money on sparkling water and those flavored "Ice" drinks. Glad to know this is Whole30 compliant - I like drinking different flavors from time to time. Also, I'm really excited to try those mocktails! Thanks for the link.
  9. Looking for something to drink that is less boring than water. The orange juice contains: 100% Orange juice, calcium hydroxide, citric acid, malic acid, and vitamin D3. I know I'm not supposed to just drink fruit juice, but if I put a lot of water and a little OJ and carbonate it, would that be okay? Specifically, I am wondering if calcium hydroxide and malic acid are compliant with the program??? (I know that the OJ, citric acid and D3 are fine.) Thanks!
