  1. Thank you so much for your input. Tomorrow is my final W30 day, and I already know I will weigh myself and have cream in my coffee Wednesday morning, mot much, just enough to make it good. I will also try to reintroduce beans, which I love. Otherwise, I believe I can continue down this path. I will
  2. So I complete my 30 days next week. It has been going well, and I have seen many positives. I love the feeling of control, especially over sugar and alcohol. My clothes are fitting better, so I know I have lost some weight, but I really need to lose weight. I understand that Whole 30 is not designed for weight loss, but need some ideas how to incorporate some of Whole 30 moving forward so that I can lose weight. i am looking forward to any and all suggestions. Thank you in advance!
  3. So I have begun thinking about reintroducing certain foods (cream and beans are on my priority list...of all things), and read the following, The only dairy I am interested in adding back is some full/fat real cream in my coffee. That would amount to no more than 2 Tbls. daily, but based on the statement below, that doesn't appear to be enough to provide information on the impact. Thoughts? Ideally, you’ll reintroduce enough of each food group to test the effects. (A splash of milk in your coffee won’t allow you to see the impact of dairy on your system.)
  4. It appears we are on a similar path. I begin my 14th day today, roughly half-way, and have really been paying more attention to NSVs...I am sleeping much better, even sleeping through the night last night...after drinking tea all day, I was a little surprised at that. Also, my skin looks better, and I think my eye circles are lighter and less pronounced. I have been recently diagnosed with asthma like symptoms, so was hoping to see improvements there, but if any, not as significant as I would like, but aagin, still only on day 14. Since I enjoy almost all vegetables, the starchy veg have added
  5. Thank you, I certainly will review this list! I guess I should have included one positive for sure, is the feeling of being control. So thank you for encouraging me to think outside of the norm.
  6. Greetings. I am 59 and doing this for the first time. Over the past nine months, I have been eating that doesn't run away, and have single handedly kept wine producers in business. So I have gained significant weight, and have been diagnosed with Asthma like symptoms. My goal for this challenge is to get my bad food habits under control. I am really hoping to lose weight also. While I fee good, I have not experienced any magic yet. Would enjoy continuing conversation.
  7. Thank you, I love the old house cat comment! I still don't really understand the Tiger Blood phenomenon anyway. So what positives did you experience? While I am not having any of the negatives, I also have not experienced many positives.
  8. Also, I really appreciate such a quick response. That is so very helpful!
  9. Thank you, I somehow missed the recommendation for some starchy vegetable everyday. This is not a problem, as I really do love all vegetables.
  10. So I am beginning day 8. I feel like I have been very compliant with the rules and eating times/patterns, although I did get hungry yesterday afternoon, so had a compliant snack. I have not experienced any of the projected symptoms so far, even though my diet for the past 9 months has been horrendous, lots of carbs, sugar, dairy, and alcohol, at all times of the day. Because I have not been having symptoms, I am questioning if I am doing anything wrong. So For breakfast, a typical meal is two eggs, a LARGS bowl of salad greens with approximately 1 tbls. Olive oil, half a small avacado, and
  11. Thank you! This is my 5th day, so far so good.
  12. I used to make a homemade sausage usually turkey, using a whole apple, as well as garlic, fresh ginger, jalapeno and spices (no sugar). I using an apple in this context acceptable? It would give me a break from eggs. Also, is there a recommendation for the fat content in ground means? I typically go for fat free or low fat, but being new to Whole30, I don't know if that holds true.
  13. Hello. My name is Joyce, and I am also starting today, January 4, 202. This is my first time to this forum and to Whole30. Read the book and stocked my pantry this weekend. Looking forward to this journey, although I will need support. My "why" is to control my drinking, my health and my food choices, rather than those controlling me. 59 years old from Ohio, where unfortunately, it is cold and gray today.
