  1. Hey @Rebecca001! Thanks for all the tips. I am going to the gym often and also having a high amount of exercise everyday because of work. But I kind that feel stuck because I can't finish my whole30. It is like every day I wake up, do my whole30 breakfast, but then I eat something not allowed in the middle of the day and then it's over. It is not that I am eating super bad, but I have been eating what I shouldn't. And I feel bad about it. I am not losing weight also and that has annoyed me a little. Now I am in a paradigm and I wanted your opinion. I work as a housekeeper, and it's
  2. Hi you all. Long time I don't show up here. June was a hard month and I went out of control with the diet. Yes, most of the time I had compliant foods, but I had way too much bad stuff which has increased my allergy and reduced my immunity. So I'm back on track. I made a few adjustments and what I most wanna know is about body fat now. I added to my diet whey protein and peanut butter. Yes lactose is bad for me, but I found that 2 spoons of whey protein doesn't affect that much - lactose wise speaking. I also added peanut butter because I don't feel peanuts have any effect on my
  3. Hey, how is it going? I can see it's your second whole 30? Which kind of differences have you seen so far between your very first days, and these first days? I am trying to start the whole30 again, but it is being impossible because of my busy routine! Also, which kind of chorizo have you found? I cannot find any in Denmark that doesn't contain sugar! I wish you good luck <3
  4. In Denmark COVID still affects, but not as much as a couple of months ago. I can imagine that is so difficult for you. It is nice that you are able to using your holidays as a way of doing clean eating and taking care of yourself, that will sure help all the other pain/stuff in the body I am thinking that this period of time has been easier to cope with the whole 30 because of the weather. I feel more likely to have only meat and salad, instead of bigger meals, and this is being nice! The only difficult part is not having ice cream, especially in these sunny days. I understand what
  5. Try out the turkey bacon, I am sure you will like it. It's funny because here in Denmark all parma or serrano ham have sugar. I found out they actually don't label it. Here they say the ingredients are: pork ham, stabilizer and so on... and then I was researching what they consider pork ham, and it turns out the pork ham has added sugar. It happened this in my first whole 30, and I was so disappointed. But the turkey bacon I buy from an organic brand and it's just pork meat and some 'chemicals', but all of them natural and no added sugar. And it has less fat, so it's amazing. Aw t
  6. Exactly @Rebecca001, it is exactly how I feel. But this is over now, thank god! This weekend I couldn't do whole 30 because the place I work had so many leftovers and I didn't have food home, so I end up eating their dinner. It was healthy, but I'm pretty sure there was sugar hidden somewhere. I started today again, and I skipped breakfast because I woke up only at 10.00. Eating sugar the past couple of days made me super tired and constipated. I had eggs, spinach, turkey bacon, mayo, banana and fruits for lunch. It was nice. And I plan to have chicken soup for dinner. Have
  7. That's so beautiful to hear! 10 months and way to go! If you think, it's not that hard to change a habit when we want to. I bet you also cannot imagine your life the way it was before the whole 30 right? For 1 day I had this life again last week, with a party, drinks, snacks. OMG I felt terrible for 3 days, it's just not good for us! About regaining weight, maybe try to eat more protein and high calorie fruits, like banana, almonds and so on? At least with me I can notice that when I don't eat banana/almonds/raisins etc I tend to loose weight faster. And I know juices are not 100% c
  8. I think this time will be different, I can feel that. The only thing I'm afraid is to relax way too much, now that I know the rules. So 2 days ago I had some personal problems with my ex-boyfriend and I got super anxious. I went for a walk, got hungry (after not eating for a whole day), and grabbed a McDonalds! That frustrated me so much. First because I was in my day 2, second because I discounted my anxiety on food. So I learned from that and I won't do that again (I hope so!). Today is day 1 all over again then. - Morning: 2 eggs, banana, almonds, coconut milk -
  9. Day 01 menu - Breakfast: 3 scrambled eggs with spinach and coconut milk. With a side of a melon edge, almonds and raisins. Coffee. - Lunch: I was out and not prepared, so when I got back home (around 15:00) I had a banana and coffee. - Dinner: Chicken burger with salad, tomato and cucumber, with homemade whole30 mayo and some potatoes in the oven. I feel good today, not hungry. Still feeling a bit crappy from the before whole30 food, but I know this will go out. I didn't manage to do proper exercises, but I did walk 11,4 km (16000 steps). - I also prepar
  10. I'm sorry to hear about the food poisoning. In my first whole30 I had as well and I remember how hard it was. But sometimes it's just a toast we need. I can totally relate to your bad hip and feeling weak. I was also not very compliant the past 2/3 weeks and it got into a point where I woke up yesterday and decided that I should re-do the whole 30 again. Not that I was eating badly, but the small things made me crappy. Enjoy your holidays as much as you can And I hope when you go back you can manage to keep on track with no food poisoning
  11. Hello everyone! Today is my day 00 for the second whole 30 round. I'm planning to do a whole60, but let's see first how things go with the first 30 days. My first whole30 was in february/march and I felt great. In the past weeks I have been eating everything I can't, and I can mostly see that my anxiety levels are high. Body wise, I feel more constipation, but everything else is OK. It's just the anxiety that annoys me and I learned with my first whole 30 that it is because of sugar. In this new whole 30 I want - Reduce the amount of dried fruits and nuts - Hav
  12. Hey @Rebecca001 how are you doing with the whole 30?
  13. Hey @Rebecca001! I disappeared from here but that doesnt mean I didn't keep the whole 30. I tried my best in april/may to keep compliant but I couldn't do it 100%. It was my birthday and a friends birthday, so you know... I'm feeling crappy today, as yesterday we had this birthday and I ate absolutely everything I shouldn't. I could feel the anxiety coming. So today I'm taking it easy and tomorrow I plan to start another whole30 and be 100% compliant. This time I plan to cut down in dried fruits and nuts, as I had much of them last time. Do you all have any suggestions f
  14. Hi Rebecca! How is it going with your not having dried fruit and nuts thing? Has it got better with the snacking? How was spending easter with the no-dairy chocolate?
  15. Hello everyone! Happy Easter I just want to do a few updates after the spring clearly coming up here in Denmark. This week I had a small break from the whole 30 as I had 2 ice creams during the week, 3 buns and 50 gr dark chocolate today because of Easter. Above all this my food has been compliant. Thoughts about how this "junk" food has treated me so far: - My taste on sugar and chocolate has definitely changed. Before I would easily eat 100 gr of chocolate and wanna more, today I could barely cope with 50. Also even dark chocolate I find it very sweet now. Maybe at some
  16. Congratulations on your 250 days from the first Whole30! That's a big step! Regarding chocolate I have exactly the same feeling as you. It is emotional, and I don't feel it goes away the anxiety after eating. So I am trying to avoid it. I'm keeping all compliant, and today I decided to have some feta cheese for dinner, so let's see how that goes. After feeling horrible (physically) because of the nutella, I am trying to be very careful with the reintroduction. So tonight I'll have a salad with feta, a beef and some potatoes. Let's see how that goes. I was considering starting anot
  17. Thank you!!! Exactly, I am feeling the same as you. I introduced cheese on monday and it didn't taste the same. It tasted weird and I'm not sure I want to have it again. I am feeling sad now, I tried nutella. I couldn't resist, I was anxious tonight and I felt terrible. I tried today about 3 spoons, and I'm feeling awful! Like terribly awful. Feeling guilty, but more than that.. my stomach hurts, I want to puke, this sugar bomb is having a really bad effect. I guess it is in my not-worth list. I never liked very very extremely sweet things, so I guess next time I try a chocolate wil
  18. Hey @Rebecca001 @ShannonM816 and everyone else Thanks for all the support in these 30 days! I finished the day 30 yesterday and I feel amazing. I am also sad, because it is over and I'm looking so much forward to start again Scale victories: - 4 kg and - 2% body fat. I was not aiming to lose weight so I let myself eating everything allowed in the programme and didn't restricted that much regarding carbs. So to me is impressive that I still lost all that. I am happy Non-scale victories: I've never been so happy, positive, excited and energetic in my whole life. My skin glows, I
  19. Hi @Rebecca001I'm feeling much better. 2 days later I was feeling already good, I think it was a good recovery I can see that I've got much more color in my face, not pale anymore! YAY! I'm not sure. I'll be studying about the reintroduction this week. But there's nothing I really miss to be honest, not even chocolate Any suggestions on that?
  20. Update over here! It's day 23 and I am already starting missing "bad" food. But not in a terrible way, some desires are coming but they go. It's getting so easy to prepare my meals now that I actually don't think I'll ever get back to the old habits. Not having eggs for breakfast??? Whaaaaat? I wanna my eggs for breakfast! hahah I feel motivated and my skin is glowing. I don't really miss things, just some quick desire. Have been having lots of teas and that helps a lot as well. This week I'll start preparing for the reintroduction! Any tips on what to do better in the last week
  21. Thanks @Rebecca001. Hokkaido is a type of pumpkin. Yesterday was terrible. I slept/was in bed whole day and I tried to keep with the whole 30, but I don't think I did. "normal food" was not holding in my stomach, the only thing I was able to eat was nuts. I had them several times, so obviously I didn't have only 3 meals. I was able to do a soup in the night, with potatoes and carrots and that went well actually. But I still feel awful. I'm not sure now if I should just start the programme all over again, once I feel better or if I should continue, finish the 30 days and start again
  22. 14 days done! That is amazing. I'm so energetic and happy about it, that I have no words to describe how the whole 30 is treating me well. In these days I learned: - Eat eggs and always focus on protein + fat + carb, instead of just having carb - I'm not craving for sweets anymore, almost never actually. And I started realizing that when I crave is actually because I'm hungry, so I am going for healthy choices instead of just eating a fruit. Something annoying happened yesterday and I wanted your help. - I did a baked Hokkaido and I think that was passed. I ate half y
  23. Thanks @Rebecca001! It's a relief to know that the one I bought is compliant. I prefer tuna, of course, but I also got a bit tired of it and it was my first time trying mackerel. It's nice Good to diversify. Also, I've bought Serrano ham the other day and it was written, pork and salt as the ingredients. Nothing else. But I've seen other brands and some contain sugar. So I'm not sure if I bought something compliant or if they did not labelled that. I'll try to avoid this banana coconut milk in the future I am not really an ice cream person, so I guess it will be ok. I just wished I hav
  24. Hi @Rebecca001thanks for sharing your thoughts. I went straight to the market and got mackerel. But I have a question. Here in Denmark we have only mackerel in tomato sauce and I'm not 100% if that is compliment. I ate and now I'm feeling bad that I made a bad choice and have to start all over In the label, it says this: 64 % makrelfilet (Scomber scombrus) uden skind og ben, 23 % vand, 12 % tomatpasta, salt. - Which means 64% of mackerel fillet without skin or bones, 23% water, 12% tomato concentrate, salt. In the supermarket's tomato concentrate, just says tomato concentrate in the
  25. Hi everyone! Day 8 here is over! I just wanted to say that I am feeling amazing! I have so much more energy, I don't feel pain anymore in my joints, I wake up without alarm and sleep without medication. My days have not been perfect - as for 3 times I had to stay out of home more than planned and had only a fruit + nuts as lunch. In the beginning I was missing sweets and substituting for fruits, but now I don't even remember the taste of them I am really satisfied and I can really see changes in my mood. And that is the most important thing to me Sometimes I am tired of eati
