    Awesome everyone!
     
    On day 5 over here and feeling pretty good. My kids are happy to eat a can of sardines for a snack (I know, I don't even know how I got so lucky - but on the flip side they don't sleep for sh*t so I guess there's always something) so I feel like I can stock the house with compliant things and not be surrounded by temptation. I also find once I get past day 3 or so it's relatively easy to avoid temptations and cravings aren't as strong.

    Go with what the bottle says. Stores and other websites can copy and paste random information from other places or just throw in information from other products if someone doesn't feel like researching what that particular product actually lists. Always go with what the label on the product in your hand says.

    Hi all - I started my Whole30 today, Jan 4! I completed one a few years ago and felt great afterward, so looking forward to that. Like many others here, 2020 got to me for a host of reasons and have been very off track and not feeling so hot. First, I'm going to focus on the food portion of my health with W30 and once I'm feeling a bit better will add some more activity. (Currently I walk my dog 1-2x a day for 20-30min a pop), so am not totally sedentary, but it's definitely not enough. I've stocked up and found a great site (https://realsimplegood.com/rsg-meal-plans/rsg-whole30-meal-plans) with a month's worth of meal plans, which really helped me get over the hump of deciding to do W30. Excited to have found the forum and connect with everyone here!

    Good morning! I’m starting today! This will be my 4th time completing the Whole30 with several failed attempts in between. I am prepped and ready to go!
    Meal 1: eggs, spinach, roasted potatoes
    Meal 2: Chicken Cacciatore with Zoodles from the Whole30 Slowcooker cookbook
    Meal 3: Asian Pot Roast with Shiirakes and Snow Peas from the Slowcooker Cookbook
    I bought a gallon water jug to make sure I’m hydrated. My workout will be a 45min Peloton ride before work and a 45 min walk after work to get fresh air. I live in Clearwater, FL so I have 0 excuses to get outside daily. I’m also doing a daily devotion. This is my year to focus on self-care. 
     
    I started a thing 3 years ago called No Planuary. It’s where I make 0 plans in January and just focus on myself. 
     
    can’t wait to see everyone’s progress and support each other!

    This will be my first time and I started today. Part of me wonders if it was wise to do with unallowed food still in the house, but I have to have some control over myself... I have been unable to control my diabetes because I do good then binge and I really need to get ahold of things.   
    I have foods I love that works so am going to concentrate on those, but I am wondering if I give up potatoes, even though they are allowed, if Yams will work in my cabbage soup.

    Yay!
    I had a false start a few months back but am now on day 3 of my fourth whole30. Every single time I feel so incredible right away, I don't know why I don't just eat this way all the time (well, yes I do...)
    I am 38 years old and 24 weeks pregnant with my 5th baby. My other kids are 1 (2 next month), 4, 6, and 9. They'll eat whatever I make so it's easy to just change everyone's diet when I embark on this. Very grateful for that.
    So excited to start 2021 on this foot.

    They will obviously taste different, but might be okay. You could try other root vegetables instead -- maybe parsnips or turnips. Or leave them out entirely, though you may need to reduce the liquid and the salt you use if you do that.
