  1. I completed my whole 30 last Wednesday 18th Nov and whilst I have definitely toned up & haven’t had a sore mouth/mouth ulcers for the 30 days (main purpose of whole30 for me was to reset & boost immune system as I was getting lots of mouth ulcers, sinus infections, dry itchy eyes & generally feeling tired) I unfortunately didn’t get that tiger blood, loads of energy feeling. I still have the blocked sinuses & my bletharitis seems to be as bad as it was before whole 30. I feel a little down as I followed whole30 to the letter & didn’t feel the wow I’ve got loads of energy mo

    Losing weight

    HI Sugarcube, Thanks for the advice, much appreciated. I have started eating an avocado each day and have a glass of coconut milk too. I've also starting adding olives to each meal. I think the hardest part is post workout as if i've been for a fast mountain bike ride and get back at 9.30pm I used to just drink a protein shake. Do you have any recommendations for post work out quick foods? Thanks Nigel
  3. Hi all, I am on day 18 of my first whole30 and am enjoying in but am starting to lose weight. I have some pea protein in the cupboard but it is not 100% and wanted to check if it is ok to consume. The ingredients are:- Chocolate: Pea Protein Isolate (87%), Fat-Reduced Cocoa Powder, Natural Flavourings, Vegetable Creamer (High Oleic Sunflower Oil, Natural Flavouring, Antioxidant (D-Alpha Tocopherol)), Thickener (Xanthan Gum), Sweetener (Sucralose). I am assuming no as it has a sweetener in it? Thanks Nigel

    Losing weight

    Hi guys, I am now on day 18 of the whole30 and am losing weight (this was my biggest concern of the plan. I am 5ft 10 and have an active lifestyle and had a pretty healthy (well what I thought was healthy) diet before taking on the whole30. I am eating a large breakfast - 2-3 eggs, vegetables and usually left over squash, sweet potato and veg either grilled or stir fried. Lunch is a large roasted sweet potato or jacket potato with tuna or chicken and home made mayonnaise Dinner is one of the larger meals within the book, so chicken with potatoes and vegetables, home made bu
  5. Thanks Shannon, great advice. I have another question if I may? i have been suffering with minor blocked sinuses for a couple of years now & wake up with a dry throat in the middle of the night. I had been using xylimelts - but because they contain xylitol I cannot use them during whole30 do you have any suggestions as to anything else that could help with nighttime dry mouth? Thanks Nigel
  6. Hi there, I am now on day 14 and over the last couple of days have started to get really bad headaches. I am just checking in to see if anyone else has had similar issues? I am trying to drink plenty of water and eat as much as possible. Many thanks Nigel
  7. Hi there, Thank you Kay & John for your support, much appreciated Sorry for the slow reply! I am now day 10 and really enjoying the whole30. I have found that by making a much bigger dinner I can reuse the vegetables in a nice frittata with eggs the next day. My wife Katie is not doing whole30 but she is being super supportive and helping with menu choices a week in advance. I started the whole30 for an immune system reboot due to persistent mouth ulcers and generally feeling tired and lethergic. No more mouth ulcers and feel like I am slowly getting my energy levels back!
  8. Hi all, I’m starting the whole 30 tomorrow, wish me luck! Live in Cambridge UK and an hoping to reboot my immune system. Really looking forward to it but a bit worried about 30 breakfasts without my beloved porridge!! looking forward to the 30 day journey. Nigel
